GSC Game World, developer of the post-apocalyptic shooter series Stalker, is partnering up with DMarket to create a metaverse for the franchise.
Stalker 2: Heart of Chernobyl, which is scheduled to launch in April 2022, will be the first game from GSC Game World to feature unique in-game items that players will be able to purchase and sell on its new blockchain network. It says the rights to these items will belong to players who purchase them.
“Considering the global trends in gaming, we can do more than just offer an immersive game experience,” states Evgeniy Grygorovych, CEO of GSC Game World, in a press release. “Our players can get a deeper presence in the game, and we will give them this opportunity by presenting the first AAA game with a unique meta experience.”
