Ember Sword is a social sandbox MMORPG taking place in a player-driven universe where the adventure finds you. Built by a team of imaginative artists, engineers, and game designers, Ember Sword offers a unique community-led and frictionless PvP and PVE player experience, and allows true ownership of digital gaming assets using blockchain technology.
Set in an exciting, dystopian, fantasy universe, players of can create a character, choose one of 4 nations as their home, and venture into a dangerous world with their weapon of choice to defeat bosses, monsters and other players or, explore lands as a peaceful forager or craftsman, levelling up and refining their chosen skill.
With Ember Sword, the community is in complete control. Artists can design and implement in-game collectibles. Landowners can shape and develop their plots, and skilled battlers can forge their historical milestones forever on the blockchain, generating one-of-a-kind cosmetic assets with unique rarities and attributes that are tradable. Players not only shape the Ember Sword universe but also earn valuable tokens and unique assets as rewards.
Ember Sword is both PVE and PVP, with the in-game content being skill-based and competitive, but never pay-to-win. Meaning collectibles and NFTs don’t have any in-game advantages. The PVE in-game content focuses on fighting unique monsters and beasts and open-world bosses. Players with the ambition and skill to win PVE or PVP battles are rewarded with personalised, limited edition cards detailing the history of their epic battles, which can unlock, further scarce collectibles.
The in-game currency, an ERC-20 token called Ember, can be used to purchase tradable collectibles and land. Land in Ember Sword are NFTs that players have the freedom to build upon, develop, divide and trade and also earn a percentage of in-game revenue.
First playable on PC and Browser, Ember Sword will be playable on mobile phone after launch. Over time, the team plan to make the game playable on all platforms and accessible to anyone, including non-crypto users.
Currently, in the pre-alpha phase, Ember sword will be opening up the capital of Solarwood as the first nation released for pre-alpha testing. This will be happening in 2022 and the remaining nations will release sometime in 2023.
“We knew that with PlanetQuest, we wanted to push the limits of how many of the assets in our game could exist on the blockchain and truly be owned by players. Few technologies available today can offer the kind of transaction volume Immutable X can handle, and none do so with its level of security and ease of use. Which is why we’re thrilled to team up with Immutable X to bring PlanetQuest to the world."Loren Roosendaal - Founder, PlanetQuest
Ember Sword is migrating from Polygon to Immutable X for gas-free minting and trading without compromising the security of the most widely used NFT blockchain, Ethereum.
