Star Atlas Showcases Fused Gaming Industry Future with Web3 and Metaverse at GDC 2022

Star Atlas, incorporating web3, open economies, and the metaverse, proved itself as the next generation of gaming in the recent Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2022. The rendition of an address by Star Atlas CEO Michael Wagner explored the substantial potential of the gaming industry’s evolution and the company’s competitive edge.

Star Atlas develops a grand strategy space exploration Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) game, setting itself apart with an open framework for development and a burgeoning virtual universe. The project melds prime graphics through Unreal Engine 5 and the high-performance Solana blockchain. Bounded only by imagination, this game will allow gamers to partake in space exploration, territorial conquest, and political strategy, all within an almost endless universe.

According to Wagner, the company’s vision stretches beyond mere entertainment. The Star Atlas metaverse provides an infrastructure that empowers a worldwide, borderless community of creators and innovators, heralding the future of labor. Gamers will experience growth in their avatars through traditional skill-tree mechanics, improvement in land and ship assets, plus a rich array of immersive content.

Blockchain technology, married with real-time graphics, has paved the way for a next-gen gaming metaverse. Star Atlas‘ integration of Unreal Engine 5’s Nanite allows for cinematic-quality video game visuals. Furthermore, the use of the Solana protocol promises a secure gameplay experience and a pivotal shift to a serverless environment.

Star Atlas‘ economic model showcases the tangibility of real-world assets and ownership through Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). This presents an exciting opportunity for players to command an economy, replicating real-world business dynamics. The fusion of these technologies positions Star Atlas at the vanguard of the gaming industry’s evolution.

Wrapping up the address, Wagner extended an invitation to entrepreneurs, executives, cryptocurrency enthusiasts, video gamers, and economists to join the journey towards creative expression, continuous learning, and prosperity within the usually competitive Star Atlas metaverse and beyond.
