7 best NFT games to watch out for in 2021
There is always something new and exciting about the world of online gaming. From the rise of women in esports to the expansion of mobile and cloud-based games, players across the globe are also all about the recent innovation of NFTs (non-fungible tokens).
NFTs are one-of-a-kind and creative assets stored on a digital ledger called a blockchain. That’s right! They are cryptographic tokens that represent real-world aspects like art, music and, in this case, in-game items marked by unique IDs, origins, and ownerships.
Gamers are willing to spend big bucks on them because, according to Decrypt Editor-in-Chief Daniel Roberts, they can’t be ‘duplicated or copied, they’re verifiably scarce’. Now with the recent global success of Pokemon-style play-to-earn game Axie Infinity, Mitvonline gives you other NFT games to watch out for this 2021.
Recently released on August 28, Binamon aims to rival the popularity of Axie Infinity. It is a multiplayer, role-playing blockchain game with a complete metaverse of digital monsters. You can stake or trade them to earn the game’s own token, $BMON.
- Ember Sword
Axie Infinity requires quite a bit of money before you can start playing. If games like that are not within your budget, then you should consider trying Ember Sword. It is a free-to-play (F2P) MMORPG (massively-multiplayer online role-playing game), where you make a character, raid dungeons, kill monsters and bosses, among others. Its NFT collectables are avatars, skins, and other cosmetic items.
- The Sandbox
Initially released in May 2012, The Sandbox is a sandbox game for mobile phones and Microsoft Windows. Its Voxel-style blockchain version came when Animoca Brands acquired it in August 2018. To the game’s fans before, you can now build on Land and easily sell and monetise your creations to earn SAND, the game’s utility token.
- Star Atlas
Inspired by the Taurus constellation’s triple star system, Star Atlas is a next-gen and grand strategy gaming metaverse. You can explore space and conquer territories by taking various roles in many professions available in the game. It is run by Solano, a blockchain protocol capable of 50,000 transactions per second.
- Doctor Who: Worlds Apart
Another F2P NFT game recently released in August 2021 is Reality Gaming Group’s Doctor: Who Worlds. It is a tactical card game where you can collect and trade them with other players. Its exclusive token is called vUSD.
- Big Time
If you want a much more socially inclined NFT game that allows you to team up with friends, Big Time brings adventure across time and space. Get ready to explore the world, past, present, and future that ranges from ancient mysteries to futuristic civilisations.
If you enjoyed Big Time, perhaps Illuvium will interest you more in the world of adventure video games. It is an open-world RPG game that takes you on a journey across missions and battles. Since it runs on the Ethereum blockchain, you can earn its exclusive token called $ILV.
