Barcelona, ​​Spain – Blizzard was once a beloved game developer, they couldn’t be wrong, and nearly every major release has been praised by critics and gamers alike.

Snow storm was the goose that laid the golden eggs for fans and critics alike. But that will not remain the case for long.

The world has witnessed several scenarios of waiting and praying impatiently for game releases and having to encounter infamous and hated revelations. Even though some of them were so bad that the members asked if it was a April Stupid joke! Years later, even after several games have been released on mobile and PC devices, much to everyone’s dismay, the world is witnessing a rise in what is known as the “pay to win” mentality, with some analysts discovering that some games cost more. $100,000 to maximize their characters. Not to say that the games are objectively fake. Many games are enjoyable and don’t require players to spend a penny. Some games still require microtransactions, and due to their loot box nature, like Diablo Immortal, they were banned in half. countries! There are approximately 3.1 billion gamers worldwide, and some sources estimate up to 2.6 billion of them are on mobile devices. The worldwide gaming industry turnover is estimated at more than 176 billion dollars, with up to 85% of these revenues come from “free-to-play” or freemium games. This is relevant here because although free games have been around for a long time, they have become mainstream and have exploded in popularity with the growing popularity and mass adoption of mobile games.

Smartphones essentially put handheld game consoles into everyone’s hands. Making games free allowed gamers to “try out” games by effortlessly downloading and playing them on the go (and on the toilet). While many microtransactions in many games are considered fair, there have been very egregious cases of games being completely blocked by “paywalls”. Either way, gamers are clearly still happy to shell out their hard-earned cash for microtransactions in free-to-play titles, whether they’re considered fair or not, as evidenced by the industry growth. Even games with very negative reviews and widely considered “not fun” are still played. Not a penny of the money players spend on these games will be returned to them in any way. There is no return on investment because players do not see it as an investment. Whether they know it or not, gamers never really own any of their digital assets; heck they don’t even own the games in their Steam libraries! This is where Web 3.0 can make a difference. For the very first time, every user will truly own their digital assets, and no one, not even developers, can do anything about it!

The potential impact of Web 3.0 on the gaming industry has yet to be realized. Everyone is so caught up in this “play to win” trend that they don’t realize the incredible benefits that blockchain technology can have. Instead of, say, paying $60 for a game on Steam that you don’t technically really own, you’d pay for an NFT that works exactly the same as a digital copy of a game (but does? Maybe not yet in terms of quality, but keep going read). The difference is that you own it; you are free to sell or trade it at will. All grinding players do for loot, and gold can be traded safely and freely on the open market. Money earned by selling rare skins from opening CS:GO cases will no longer be locked forever Steam; players can spend it wherever they want or withdraw it if they wish. Massive companies like Square Enix, the developers of the Tomb Raider games, have started to switch to Web 3.0. Manel Sort’s Games 4 One Lifethe man who created the legendary game candy Crushalso entered the web 3 game space to show the world that web 3 games can be fun and give players a return on their investment.

Elemental Raiders is a free title with a unique twist. It will feature an optional game mode for those who purchase the NFTs with additional earning opportunities, but that doesn’t change the gameplay itself. It simply allows players to spend money for potential ROI without controlling gameplay or content behind paywalls. The free-to-play model of Elemental Raiders will be published on Steam, making it one of the first Web 3 games to be featured on the world’s largest digital distribution platform. This is really where blockchain gaming can shine. When used to ENHANCE the gaming experience in sound and fun games. When winning is a happy byproduct of the gaming experience, not when it’s the only goal. When players have the freedom to do whatever they want with their hard-earned assets, whether they’ve crafted them by grinding or buying them.
