Top 5 NFT Games To Watch In 2022
NFT games leverage the power of blockchain technology to provide players with ownership and a decentralized environment. While the industry is still in its growing stages, NFT games alone generated $2.32 billion in revenue in the second quarter of 2022.
Here's a compilation of top NFT games to watch in 2022, along with their future plans.
1) Nyan Heroes
Nyan Heroes is a Free to Play P2E Battle Royale built on the Solana Blockchain. Overall, it is a shooter-style action game in which users acquire Nyans (Cats) and their Guardian Robots as NFTs and then utilize their heroes to attack other players. The game's economy consists of two tokens: $NYN and $CTNP, with $NYN serving as the ecosystem's multi-utility governance token and $CTNP functioning as the in-game token.
After completing its "High Noon" phase of the roadmap, the game will now begin the "Twilight" phase, which will run from June to December 2022. This phase includes the Gameplay Alpha launch, as well as Battle Royale and Adventure mode testing. The anticipated Genesis Block Land pre-sale will also begin during the Twilight period. Nyan Heroes will actively host PvP competitions with grand prize rewards.
2) Guild of Guardians
Guild of Guardians is an upcoming mobile RPG with a soft launch scheduled for Q2 2022. It's a free-to-play mobile multiplayer fantasy action RPG in which players can acquire heroes and form their own "Guardians" to take on tasks and adventures. The Guild of Guardians economy is different from most P2E models in that it only has one in-game currency (GEMS), which serves as a combination of both Governance (AXS) and Utility Tokens (SLP). The immutable X blockchain offers instant transactions and no transaction fees.
An alpha version will be made available to test the use of Gems for voting purposes. After the alpha version is released in Q4 of 2022, the game will enter the beta stage, which will include additional game models as well as other enhancements and corrections depending on user feedback. The game will be released in its entirety in Q2 2023.
3) Phantom Galaxies
Phantom Galaxies is a Polygon blockchain-based mecha starfighter battle. The open-world Space MMO elevates the 3D action role-playing gaming experience with blockchain-powered governance, verifiable ownership, and self-custody of in-game goods.
Only three of the Alpha version's four episodes are currently accessible. The Beta launch is planned to take place in Q3 2022.
4) The Sandbox
The Sandbox is a virtual world built on the Ethereum blockchain, where players can build, own, and monetize their gaming experiences.
The Sandbox Alpha Season events give players the chance to be among the first to experience gameplay, social hubs, and play-to-earn features in the metaverse. Alpha Seasons are typically multi-week events in which players can earn $SAND rewards and possibly NFTs (non-fungible tokens) – simply by playing games.
With season 2 already completed in March, alpha season 3 will include some definitive rewards for Sandbox participants.
5) Ember Sword
Ember Sword is a free-to-play, massive multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) that will be released within the next year on the Immutable X blockchain. When the game is released, you can go on quests with your guild to locate NFT items to sell in the marketplace, protect land, and level up your character. Ember is the in-game currency, an ERC-20 token that can be purchased in-game (if supplies last) and used to purchase land and collectible in-game NFTs.
The game is currently in pre-alpha, with alpha testing set to begin in the first quarter of 2022. Land sale applications are now closed, but lucky early-access landowners will be able to participate in alpha testing.
The NFT gaming industry will continue to expand and gain traction. Given their popularity and the hundreds of millions of dollars invested in them, it's no surprise that many people believe NFT games will take over the world.
