Epic Games Introduces New Metaverse Programming Language, Verse
News

In a bid to expand its metaverse campaign, Epic Games has introduced Verse as a new metaverse programming language.  Epic’s ecosystem is like many metaverse platforms built on web2, with an underlying Web3 technology that fosters the development of an immersive 3D virtual space. The Unreal Engine developer has made the Verse open-source like its web2 3D tech platform. The new Web3 language performs functional and logic programming paradigms similar to Curry and Mercury. Epic’s new language will join the endless list of Web3 programming which includes Clarity, Solidity, Rust et al.

What Epic Games Offers In Verse

In an introductory guide from Epic Games, Verse will make use of five key principles that would be pivotal in building the metaverse. This guide was prepared and collated by Simon Peyton Jones, Tim Sweeney Lennart Augustsson, Koen Claessen, Ranjit Jhala, and Olin Shivers

Verse will enable the creation of social interactions in a shared real-time 3D environment. In addition to this, the open-source language will be governed by rules with no corporate overloads. It would be available for all programmers, artists, and designers. Verse allows for interoperable content with live updates running code, it is also compatible with other game simulation servers like Unity. 

Though the Web3 developers market is still in its bud stage, it is growing at a fast rate. A larger percentage of today’s Web3 developers joined the space in 2021. Interestingly, Ethereum's Solidity has remained the most-used language with over 4,000 monthly users. Nevertheless, open-sourced Rust has attracted a lot of developers due to its ability to support the development of highly scalable projects. Rust also supports multiprogramming concepts. 

Epic Games acknowledges that prior Web3 programming languages are all computationally universal systems, but Verse could augment the evolution of the Web3 industry. Verse will improve on fast transactions, scalability, and interoperability.
