In mid-October, Superior introduced that their web3, play and earn sport could be accessible on Steam. Which was a little bit of a shock, as a result of nearly a 12 months in the past, Steam particularly acknowledged that they’d not be working with blockchain video games. So what’s happening right here?
As a part of the larger gaming group backlash in opposition to NFTs throughout 2021-2022, Steam introduced that they’d not help any video games that used NFTs. Different distribution platforms, akin to Epic, have embraced the web3 gaming motion. However not Steam.
So it was stunning to listen to the announcement from Superior that the sport could be distributed on the Steam platform. In any case, gamers can use Character and Weapon NFTs in Superior. Did Steam change their thoughts? Did Superior handle to idiot them one way or the other? Nicely, because it seems, Superior is making two variations of their sport. One that’s web3 enabled, with NFTs, and one that isn’t. As you may guess, the Steam model shall be NFT free. Superior plans to supply some type of account migration choice, permitting gamers to maneuver their accounts to the web3 model of the sport.
And, Superior can even provide the possibility for gamers on each variations of the sport to have the ability to play collectively! So, with the larger distribution accessible by Steam, Superior has an opportunity to attain a bigger viewers, and probably introduce a few of these gamers to the world of gaming NFTs!
This can be a very attention-grabbing tactic and I might not be shocked to see different video games attempt one thing comparable. Steam customers can already add Superior to their wishlist.
