NFTs of weapons, armor, heroes, appearances, resources, and even animal companions can be used or traded by players in a decentralized, player-driven economy. Members of the team have previously taken up leadership positions for gaming titles, including critically acclaimed games such as Call of Duty Online, Grand Theft Auto Series, Marvel’s Avengers, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, and many other AAA games.
In Ascenders, players will be able to freely choose their preferred economic lanes at any time. Each lane has its play-to-earn loop and own rewards system, creating complex, lasting interdependencies between players and encouraging continuous trade in the economy. Players will fully own all the weapons, avatars, and land they have created or earned in-game as freely tradeable NFTs.
