The early days of blockchain gaming have caused many people to push back against the idea of NFTs in video games. Unfortunately, the exciting potential of gamers truly owning their in-game digital has assets been overshadowed by the misunderstandings and learning curves around the early days of play-and-earn games.
That’s why games like Rogue Star are aiming to set the record straight and to bring community-owned blockchain gaming to millions of mass market players across the globe.
That’s why games like Rogue Star are aiming to capitalize on this opportunity, bringing community-owned blockchain gaming to billions of mass market players across the globe.
A brainchild of Web3 development studio Rize Games, Rogue Star is a sci-fi MMORPG in which players can choose from a variety of land vehicles and spacecraft to freely explore the universe and collect, trade, and build on various planets. Along their journey, players will encounter a variety of PVP and PVE battle scenarios, along with opportunities for collaboration and creation within a lively player-owned economy.
Deeply committed to pushing the envelope for innovative pro-social gaming design and impeccable user experience, Rogue Star’s team brings a strong pedigree in tabletop RPG creation, branding, and community management. Spanning four continents, Rize’s diverse and accomplished team has previously worked for gaming leaders such as Riot Games, 2K Games, Square Enix, MZ, Xbox Game Studios, and the IMX-based game Gods Unchained.
Since launching in 2022, Rogue Star has been heads down in development, releasing two playable experiences within six months, while earning second place in the Spring 2022 Solana Hackathon. A third, highly-anticipated 4-player PvE demo is expected to launch within the next few weeks. But to continue its ascension to mass-market gaming, Rogue Star needs the proper infrastructure to scale.
