Grand Theft Auto is officially getting a Metaverse boost through MyMetaverse. The cross-platform gaming network powered by Enjin Network that links gaming worlds will soon launch the world’s first NFT-powered Grand Theft Auto server Meta City.
MyMetaverse announced that Meta City: Grand Theft Auto is now in a Closed Alpha State. This means that the developers are currently working on balancing the features and fixing bugs in the Rockstar brand game.
Basically, full MetaCitizen NFT Integration means that player stats and achievements are tracked and applied across the growing Metaverse. Meanwhile, a MetaCitizen NFT is a unique profile that players use to access the gameplay experience. It is similar to those available in any video game and it can be purchased for $4 from MyMetaverse Store.
Aside from citizenship, the Marketplace also offers four types of vehicles spread across four levels of Rarity. The common, divine, rare and meta NFTs are available for purchase between $3 – $60. The platform is still building its equipment category, so only two NFTs are available: Blue Steel and Silent Screamer.
MyMetaverse aims to bring many games together and enable gamers to seamlessly use their assets from one game world into another. So apart from Grand Theft Auto, it also has a MetaCity: Minecraft server where players can play the game and keep their digital assets like real estate as an NFT.
The project hasn’t released the full mechanics yet but one thing’s for sure, players can earn NFTs through gameplay. The success of Axie Infinity with 1 Billion Sales and 1 Million players is cementing “play-to-earn” as a gaming standard.
According to MyMarketCap, play-to-earn game tokens have a total market cap of $5.79 billion as of August 10. This figure is impressive because most games are barely one year old. Thus, the ambition of MyMetaverse to connect multiple game worlds and apps into one interconnected entertainment ecosystem is a logical move to gain a position of strength.
