Today, a “non-fungible token” tech news item gains its spotlight, as it is disclosed that Ubisoft will incorporate NFTs into its AAA game line-up. Raise your hand if you expected EA would be the first to make a move.
Ubisoft Digits are the “first NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) usable in a AAA game,” according to the company. The initiative to incorporate NFTs into AAA games is described as an “experiment,” and it debuts through a management platform called Ubisoft Quartz. The first Digits will be accessible on Ubisoft Connect for Windows PC in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Digits will represent one-of-a-kind collectibles such as in-game cars, guns, and equipment.
The company stated that each Digit is a one-of-a-kind collectible with its serial number for others to view in-game, as well as maintaining track of its current and prior owners for coming years, making players an important part of the game’s history.
Leveraging block chain technology
Ubisoft’s implementation was not formed from scratch, but rather is built on Tezos, a block chain that uses a Proof-of-Stake consensus process. Tezos is said to be far more energy-efficient than Bitcoin and Ethereum, and a proven NFT leader, which is important to some.
If you want to dabble in Digits for pleasure or as a potential investment, you must fulfil a few requirements. Ubisoft Quartz’s first beta will be available on Thursday, December 9 at 6 p.m. UTC. The tool is accessible in the following countries: the United States, Canada, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Australia, and Brazil. You should also have Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint on Ubisoft Connect for Windows PC, and XP level or 5+, and be at least 18 years of age.
As Digits are identified, it is difficult to frown upon this in-game implementation. We are confident that there will be more AAA gaming and NFT crossovers in the future from a lot of sources. However, due to the nature of humans and business, we can be confident that some upcoming game NFT implementations will pass the line of acceptability or decency in the quest for bigger profits.
