Open-world action role-playing game Stormrite has announced a partnership with gaming blockchain platform Enjin to explore NFT integration.
In an announcement on Enjin’s blog, Stormrite said that its plans to bring eco-friendly cosmetic NFTs to its platform have begun.
Meanwhile, NFT items will be redeemed in the game and will modify the appearance of players’ gear and companions. As such, Stormrite NFTs will be released regularly as part of the preparations for the game’s release on PC and Xbox in 2022.
On the other hand, Stormrite’s future release plans include a publicly available steam demo in early 2022, with a full release on PC and XBOX planned thereafter.
Stormrite: 18 months of development
The team said on their Kickstarter page that they had been working on the game for more than a year and a half, when it had raised $56,600.
That said, Enjin is a logical choice for a gaming partner, as it has a range of products that allow developers of all sizes to integrate NFTs in innovative ways.The Enjin team created the ERC-1155 NFT standard in 2017, when it launched the first NFT minting platform.
In addition, the announcement states.” We chose to work with Enjin because of their accompanying position in the gaming NFT world. They are also committed to decarbonizing NFTs. By adopting Enjin’s Jumpnet blockchain, all of the NFTs we integrate into stormrite will be carbon-negative.”
The announcement also added that players who do not purchase Stormrite NFTs will not see any changes to their gaming experience. They stated.” Stormrite will be a 100% single player experience with no pay-to-win features, and we will never deviate from that.”
Because of this, NFTs will become something in the player’s inventory when redeemed. Also, the stats will remain the same, but items will look like NFTs and be unique.” This is to avoid any pay-to-play situations that could ruin the game experience,” it says.
ENJ token update
On the other hand, Enjin Coin is up 2.8% on the day, reaching $2.09 at the time of writing, according to CoinGecko. enj has been flat over the past week, but has made gains of 36% over the past two weeks.
The gaming blockchain token hit a new all-time high of just under $4 on April 9, but has fallen 47% since those highs. Further partnerships with gaming companies could see ENJ regain momentum.
