Axie Infinity launches new products and features.

The Axie Infinity project saw an 86% decrease in players in Q3 compared to Q2. Despite this decline, Q3 was productive for the project. The team organized the inaugural AxieCon conference in Barcelona, ​​Spain. They announced the introduction of new products and features dealing with relevant GameFi topics, including the game economy, decentralization, and community empowerment.

Additions for Axies characters, the first mini game for landowners and other features for the upcoming part of the game called Land were introduced. While the main game Axie Infinity Land, also known as Project K, is in development, the company has released a new mini game called Axie Infinity Raylights.

This includes NFT parcels. Players will use minerals in the game to produce, grow and find new plants to beautify the parcels. Over time, players will unlock more materials and game layers, and collect a wider variety of plants.

Season 1 was launched in Q3 with a total reward pool of AXS 112,000.

TOP 10 most played games list.

- OliveX and The Sandbox expand the fitness metaverse.

The OliveX Metaverse has partnered with The Sandbox to promote their partners Trib3, Gym Aesthetics and Playinnovation in the metaverse. Thanks to this collaboration, OliveX partners will be able to present their products in The Sandbox.

DEFY, an AR Move-2-Earn game creator, also received one of the investments, as the corporation seeks to introduce fitness industry gamification.

OliveX also invested in Silentmode Limited's Breathonics, a mental health training software featuring meditation music.

Will the Vulcan Forged ecosystem bring another wave of users?

Vulcan Forged is a dApp incubator with over 10 games, a community of over 125,000 people and a crowdfunding site. In addition, it offers a DEX, a gaming marketplace, and an NFT art platform, making it a great place for blockchain gaming enthusiasts.

Vulcan Forged is also known for creating the MMORPG VulcanVerse, which raised USD 8 million in a Series A investment in Q3 (an investment to expand an already established business).

The investment is intended to accelerate expansion, which allows players to build their own territory in the metaverse. The funds will also be used to expand Vulcan's activities in North America and beyond.

Epic Games Store starts offering NFT games.

The founder and CEO of Epic Games responded to the ban on cryptocurrencies and NFTs on Steam. He stated that he will allow other developers to bring NFT games to the Epic Store if they comply with applicable laws and industry standards. However, Epic Games has stated that it has no intention of developing its own NFT games. Therefore, we don't expect that Fortnite will switch to NFT.

In Q3, the NFT game Blankos Block Party launched, becoming the first published NFT game on the Epic Games Store. It is the original game version, which can also be downloaded from the official developers’ website; Web3 elements are not omitted. However, this game does not contain cryptocurrencies or monetization, only NFT items.

Next in order is Star Atlas. It was released on the Epic Games Store as a demo version. It is a showroom with the fundamental Unreal Engine 5 technology video: NEXT GENERATION GRAPHICS IS FINALLY HERE, on which the game is built. It allows Star Atlas NFT owners to explore the area and view purchased ship and vehicle models.

Star Atlas has also released a toolkit to make it easier for other developers to bring their own Unreal Engine 5 based games to the Solana blockchain. In addition, they presented DAO changes and the path to complete decentralization of the game economy and ecosystem, and furthermore revealed an upcoming digital graphic book that introduces the game's story.

Author’s note: Gala Games, who conducted an alpha test of Superior in Q3, are also slowly coming to the Epic Games Store. This version was not Play-&-Earn yet.

Atari X is coming to The Sandbox's 3rd alpha test.

Atari has launched Atari Sunnyvale, a massive social and gaming experience in The Sandbox. There are a total of 17 original games. Atari is one of the main landowners in The Sandbox and will continue to work with partners to create more fun gaming experiences in the coming years.

Web3 penetrates e-sports.

Guild of Guardians (GOG), the mobile team-based action game, has announced a multi-year agreement with eight of the world’s largest and most prestigious professional e-sports organizations. Together, the partners will shape the future of games and digital entertainment on Web3 and offer pre-registration of Guild of Guardians to the world's largest e-sports community.

According to Forbes magazine, five of GOG's partners are among the ten most valuable e-sports teams in 2022, and the total value of the eight participants is approximately USD 2 billion.

Analyst opinion:

Soon, there will be a rapid expansion and subsequent steep decline in the number of NFT games and development studios.

The data suggests that early participants in the Play-&-Earn industry should be closely monitored due to potential market growth dynamics. We are currently in a nascent stage with huge expansion potential. There are still many opportunities for improvement, so the industry is constantly evolving and innovating.

The future of NFT games is bright, and it is well on its way to becoming the number one area in Web3.
