PRESS RELEASE. In what many would agree is a groundbreaking achievement, StarHeroes recently received a Microsoft grant. As a result, the blockchain-based game now has access to Azure PlayFab, joining the legendary collection of games like Forza Horizon, Sea of Thieves, and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.
This grant is also indicative of the shift in attitudes of large corporations as a growing number of institutional firms, corporations and large-scale organizations have continually expressed a fundamental interest in incorporating blockchain technology into their daily routines, services, products and features. This is also the first time ever that a Web3 game has received such a grant from a large company like Microsoft.
What sets StarHeroes apart?
StarHeroes is a third-person space shooter that features dynamic space battles in a fairly large world open to players for exploration and combat in two different multiplayer modes: ranking and adventure. The production also represents the Play And Earn model based on Web3, which is the one that allows players to earn real money in exchange for the game. It is simply because everyone can try their hand at this game without having to invest any money in it and, believe it or not, earn real money just for playing at no cost to the players.
While it is true that many elements of this production come in the form of unique and virtual tokens, this does not mean that there are no Free To Play alternatives. Once again, StarHeroes is a game meant for everyone, and as a result, both blockchain players and traditional players have the opportunity to compete in the same game, focusing on players’ skill, determination, strategy and cooperation. In terms of actual gameplay, StarHeroes focuses on rivalry and player engagement, and both offensive and defensive units are available to build the most competitive team (fleet). In this way, the game offers a competitive and lively PvP scene, which is among the most popular types of gameplay that can be found in numerous game genres today.
A historic partnership
The creators recently discussed the aforementioned significant achievement, namely StarHeroes receiving a grant from a tech giant, Microsoft. This grant allows them to work with reputable studios such as Ubisoft and Microsoft Studios. All of this opens the door to great success as it creates many incredible development opportunities, both for StarHeroes and its developers. Ubisoft in particular is known for making popular titles like “Prince of Persia” and “Assassin’s Creed” to name a few.
Of course, while some players may remain skeptical of Play And Earn and NFT-verse gaming concepts, StarHeroes still shows a lot of promise in many ways. Of course, big companies have to think that too, since Microsoft has recognized the game and its potential. Perhaps more importantly, however, the partnership with Microsoft will open the door to blockchain games in general, with the goal that numerous other titles will have the same chance to work with major companies in the future.
What kind of potential does StarHeroes have for the future?
The game has been in development for more than two years and now StarHeroes is finally gaining considerable success and is rapidly making headlines across both encrypted and mainstream media. Therefore, the development team includes various former CD Projekt Red employees who have worked on games such as “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” and “Cyberpunk 2077”, so there is every possibility that the two years spent developing StarHeroes have been well spent.
In general, the founders of StarHeroes also see huge potential in blockchain-based esports games. While these aren’t mainstream yet, StarHeroes could be a good start for blockchain games in terms of grabbing the attention of traditional gamers. With this in mind, the StarHeroes gameplay has been modified for the organization of eSports tournaments, which is also the direction the developers intend to take given the sheer popularity and success of the esports industry, including games like “League. of Legends “,” Starcraft “and ‘DOTA 2’.
Put simply, StarHeroes has the potential not only to be successful on its own, but also to lead the charge for other blockchain-based games as well.
StarHeroes is a blockchain-based third-person space shooter powered by collectible NFTs that features dynamic space battles along with a huge world open to exploration and combat across two different multiplayer modes, namely adventure and ranking. Players can build their fleets and explore the cosmos while taking part in epic space battles.
The Polish production also exemplifies the Web3-based Play And Earn model, which allows players to earn real money in exchange for the game. Again, the importance of partnering with Microsoft cannot be underestimated, as this is an industry first and truly exemplifies the potential StarHeroes holds.
