Web3 Gaming Advances: Three Games Adopt Immutable zkEVM
The Web3 gaming domain is experiencing exciting changes, and Immutable has just announced three new games will be built on its advanced technology, Immutable zkEVM. This technology, a Zero-Knowledge proof-based scaling rollup, has been crafted specifically for the needs of Web3 game developers. GensoKishi Online, Cursed Stone, and Sailwars are charting this new course, merging gameplay with NFTs, and paving the way for a decentralized gaming future.
GensoKishi Online is one of the games poised to take advantage of the opportunities offered by Immutable zkEVM. As a metaverse adaptation of the award-winning Elemental Knights Online, the game aims to bring blockchain technology’s benefits to its gaming world. The developers are creating a new, decentralized economic system within the GensoKishi Online world. Moreover, the game recently partnered with SYMBIOGENESIS, an NFT project initiated by Square Enix, reflecting the growing integration of NFTs within gaming.
Cursed Stone, a 3D open-world MMORPG, is another title that plans to exploit the possibilities of Immutable’s technology. One of the game’s drawcards will include dynamic NFTs, allowing players to upgrade and trade their in-game items. Even characters, complete with levels and items, can be traded in this innovative gaming world. The developers are also considering integrating Near Field Communication (NFC) with NFT technology, offering more ways for players to interact with their digital world.
Sailwars, a web3 NFT game with a naval adventure theme, is the third title slated to be developed on Immutable zkEVM. Aside from engaging gameplay, Sailwars plans to allow players to trade their in-game assets—such as heroes, ships, and weapons—as NFTs. Players can also earn rewards within the game, marking a marriage of blockchain technology and game design. Sailwars has been supported by 27 leading entities, including Disney China and Alibaba Cloud.
Features of Immutable’s zkEVM
With its cutting-edge suite of tools, Immutable’s zkEVM aims to empower game developers to build interactive, engaging games by enhancing them through digital asset ownership. Developers can access APIs, SDKs, and solutions like Passport and Orderbook on the platform, facilitating an easier development process and making it possible to create intricate, blockchain-based game economies.
Andrew Sorokovsky, VP of Global Business Development at Immutable, expressed enthusiasm about the growing adoption of Immutable by gaming studios. “It’s inspiring to see more studios embracing Immutable to really level up their game,” he remarked. Sorokovsky highlighted the significant advantages of this technology, noting, “This transformative tech offers game developers enterprise-grade security, massive network effects, lower development costs, and seamless interoperability with the Ethereum ecosystem — putting web3 games on par with their web2 counterparts.”
Other Partnerships and Commitments
Immutable zkEVM continues to gather momentum in the gaming world. Studios like Shardbound and SimWin Sports have also pledged to build games on this platform. Beyond new game commitments, Immutable zkEVM has formed alliances with leading platforms such as AQUA Marketplace and GameStop. This growing network of partnerships demonstrates the platform’s acceptance and the wide-ranging enthusiasm for its technology within the gaming industry.
