Ragnarok Developer Taps The Sandbox to Bring the Game into the Metaverse

The Sandbox, a virtual world developer, has recently announced its collaboration with Korean gaming company Gravity to bring the popular MMORPG game Ragnarok into the metaverse.

Following the steps of gaming giants into adopting web 3, Gravity, the developer of Ragnarok, will also venture into the space through the integration of Ragnarok LAND into the virtual world of The Sandbox, as well as various content and NFTs using Ragnarok IP. 

Moreover, the players can also participate in the future Game Jam themed on the Ragnarok universe and characters.

Another South Korean gaming giant Krafton, the developer of popular video game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), also ventured into crypto by partnering with blockchain startup Solana Labs to develop blockchain games.

Further, gaming giant Ubisoft also formally announced its intention to develop play-to-earn NFTs last year. In December, Ubisoft launched the Ubisoft Quartz platform, a platform for its in-game NFT items. The platform is the first step in the video game firm’s aim for developing a true metaverse built on the Tezos blockchain, an open-source blockchain system.

On the other hand, the popular world-building game Minecraft did the opposite and announced that they are banning Blockchain technologies and non-fungible tokens (NFT) into their platform “to ensure that Minecraft players have a safe and inclusive experience.” (Read more: Minecraft Bans NFT and Blockchain)

While some metaverse ventures are well-received, some weren’t successful to persuade the people, the attempt of web3 company Polium of releasing the “world’s first multi-chain console for web3 Gaming” via its Polium One is shunned by the traditional gaming community and branded their innovation as just a bold and ambitious claim.

Consequently, “Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds,” a sequel to the popular role-playing game (RPG) Ni No Kuni, was also not favored by its fans when the game tried to venture into NFTs and included play-to-earn mechanics into its gameplay. And like Polium, the game also received multiple backlash although it also received adoration from players. (Read more: Ni No Kuni NFT and Crypto Features Enrage Fans)

MetaverseGo, a British Virgin Islands-based mobile gaming venture, has raised about $4.2 million in a seed funding round. The platform confirmed the development in a blog post shared on its handle. The round was led by Galaxy Interactive, Delphi Digital, Dragonfly Capital, Mechanism Capital, and Infinity Ventures Crypto.

Most of the funds will go into developing an onboarding solution. This solution is designed to ease the process of obtaining wallets, purchasing crypto, and buying gaming assets. New players have always experienced complications in actualizing those functions. Now, MetaverseGo believes its platform, through the onboarding solution, will help gamers resolve the challenge. According to reports, MetaverseGo plans to release the software by September.

The gaming platform intends to harness funds to develop its gaming software. The company will use part of the funds to secure and sustain partnership deals with telecommunication service providers. MetaverseGo also wants to embark on strategic hiring to enhance its productivity.

The firm usually avails a platform to allow gamers to sign up for games via a cell phone number. Afterward, their wallets are set up to enable them to acquire virtual tokens initiated by gaming guilds.

The co-founder of MetaverseGo, Ash Mandhyan, likened the significance of web3 integration and adoption to “learning to drive a car.” He added that people need to understand how the engine functions. According to him, this is necessary before understanding the driving, steering, and braking approaches. Mandhyan expressed the need to take things “step by step” so as not to” complicate the process too much for those new to blockchain.” The co-founder condemned those unwilling to learn about the scope of the innovation before dabbling into it.

Speaking about the gaming projects on the platform, Mandhyan revealed that gamers can now transfer winnings to their wallets. Reportedly, all wins through games played on the platform will be accessed through MetaverseGo. Credits. 

He added that MetaverseGo is accelerating efforts to bridge the gap between technological advancement and present human adoption. According to him, this will help simplify the things known to people and create a layer to take care of the strange things.

Similarly, Jake San Diego, a Co-founder and Chief Business Development Officer, said that MetaverseGo offers an “all-in-one” solution to guilds, managers, and players. San Diego averred that such a solution would allow people to communicate with their manager or sub-manager if they are scholars.

MetaverseGo platform possesses a feature that shows players games or projects rated as legitimate by the community. This is done to reduce the rate at which gamers dabble in fraudulent gaming projects.
