Guess what? Ubisoft, the brains behind games like Assassin’s Creed and Just Dance, is diving headfirst into the crypto gaming scene once again! This time, they’re teaming up with the Korean game publisher WeMade’s Wemix and joining their blockchain node council. It’s the kind of news that has gamers buzzing with excitement.
Wemix 3.0: Ubisoft Steps In as Wonder 26
Ubisoft is now officially one of the cool kids in Wemix’s gang of 40 partners, running validator nodes for their snazzy “Wemix 3.0” network. The blockchain, now Ethereum-compatible, has undergone a transformation, moving from Klaytn mainnet to its own proof-of-stake authority consensus algorithm. This means it’s not just a name change; it’s a whole new ball game.
In the Wemix universe, these partner nodes are the “Wonders,” and Ubisoft proudly claims its spot as Wonder 26. It’s a bit like being part of an exclusive club where each member plays a crucial role in validating the blockchain.
Ubisoft: The Blockchain Trailblazer
Ubisoft is no stranger to the blockchain gaming world. They were early birds in this space, especially among the big Western gaming giants. Remember the NFTs in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint in 2021? Yeah, that was Ubisoft testing the waters, and the gamers had a lot to say about it. But Ubisoft didn’t back down; instead, they embraced the crypto wave.
Fast forward to 2022, and Ubisoft becomes a node operator for the Hedera blockchain. The following year, they did it again for the Cronos blockchain. Not to mention the teaser for their first blockchain game, Champions Tactics, which created quite a stir with its free NFT mint, raking in millions in just a few hours.
Now, with Wemix, Ubisoft is spreading its blockchain wings even wider. It’s not just about crypto; Ubisoft is also venturing into the realm of AI-generated video game dialogue. These guys are on a roll, exploring every avenue to make gaming more exciting and cutting-edge.
So, buckle up, gamers! Ubisoft is steering the ship into uncharted waters, and it’s bound to be one thrilling ride. Keep those controllers ready for more updates on Ubisoft’s latest gaming escapades.
