Soon, players can bring their MetaMask wallets into any Web3 PC games

Crypto wallet developer MetaMask has joined forces with blockchain game developer Game7 to launch HyperPlay, a Web3 native game launcher. 

The launcher will allow players to carry their MetaMask or WalletConnect wallet overlaid on top of every desktop game. Thus, expanding Web3 wallets' interoperability in the PC gaming industry. 

According to its website, HyperPlay can launch any blockchain game released through the Epic Store, GOG.com (Good Old Games), and Unreal Marketplace. Users can carry their wallet, tokens, NFTs, and achievements in their MetaMask wallets across every supported title. If the game is not available on these marketplaces, players can side-load its executable installer file into HyperPlay to enjoy the said feature. 

HyperPlay is open-sourced as well, which means anyone is allowed to use, study, change, and distribute the code. It also provides a simple REST API for developers to request transactions, signatures, or any other features available in MetaMask or WalletConnect. 

"Gaming is one of the most popular use cases on MetaMask, and this milestone is crucial as it represents the first time that players can carry their MetaMask wallet into and across desktop games," said Taylor Monahan, Global Product Lead of MetaMask. 

"Players can take assets between games, use them in DeFi, and follow their friends' wallets," said jacobc.eth, a pseudonymous HyperPlay founder and Game7 core contributor.

Notably, the integrated gaming platform is compatible with any games running on EVM chains. These include existing Web3 titles on Ethereum, Polygon, Avalanche, Mantle, and more. 

HyperPlay will launch in Alpha on November 16th for select participants before moving into Public Beta in February 2023. Interested developers can sign up here for early access to the game launcher.
