Immutable X, an industry-leading NFT minting and trading platform and the world’s first Layer 2 rapid-scaling solution on Ethereum, today announced it has formed a partnership with Param Labs, to power The Kiraverse, their upcoming free-to-play battle royale shooter where players can compete and explore in an extremely user-friendly interface, easing the transition for many players from web2 to a seamless and immersive web3 experience.
The Kiraverse aims to create a new world of gaming where players seamlessly experience owning and playing with NFTs without knowing they’re NFTs, allowing players to immediately jump into the action of Kiraverse without the hassle of setting up a wallet or buying any crypto before playing. Gamers of all skill levels and backgrounds are provided with real-world value right from the start, as they explore, earn and have fun in an expansive and innovative environment brimming with exquisite landscapes.
“With zero gas fees and transaction speeds reaching up to nine thousand transactions per second, there is no better home for The Kiraverse than Immutable X,” said Anthony Anderson, founding partner of Param Labs. “Our experienced team is eager to bring The Kiraverse to gamers worldwide, our mission is to put earning potential directly in gamers' hands, offer true digital ownership of in-game assets, and provide an immersive experience enjoyable by all.”
Param Labs has assembled an elite team of experienced game developers, as well as world-renowned 3D artists Antoni and Marc Tudisco to help unite the world of gaming and fine art in a new world of digital ownership. Antoni and Tudisco have been creating 3D art and cinema for numerous years and are two of the most well-known and well-respected artists in the space, having created work for the likes of Nike, Versace and many other entertainment icons.
“Immutable is ecstatic to be working with Param Labs, as they have a vision that is sure to excite the entire gaming landscape and help onboard the next generation of players onto web3,” said Robbie Ferguson, Co-Founder of Immutable. “We look forward to providing their community with a seamless, gasless and carbon neutral NFT trading experience with our leading Layer-2 technology on Ethereum.”
The Kiraverse has already collaborated with several “blue-chip” NFT projects such as BAYC, Doodles and Cool Cats to integrate their NFTs into the game. With a community of over 53,000 followers on Twitter and 11,000 members in their discord, The Kiraverse is rapidly growing as it gets closer to release. To help further grow this community, The Kiraverse beta will be available prior to their first official mint.
Immutable is the fastest Australian company to reach unicorn status — earlier this year, Immutable announced a $200 million series C fundraising round led by Temasek, and included Tencent and Animoca Brands. The company is valued at $2.5 billion and plans to use the funds to help drive its global expansion.
Immutable is a global Blockchain Gaming company with a mission to bring digital asset ownership to billions of users through the power of immutable NFTs. The Immutable Group consists of Immutable X and Immutable Games Studio.
