- Meta Apes becomes the first game to go live on BNB Application Sidechain.
- The Web3 game is built with the software development kit of Ankr.
- Web2 and Web3 gaming features are offered by Meta Apes.
Meta Apes, a free-to-play and play-to-earn MMO strategy game, declared that it is the first game to go live on the BNB Application Sidechain (BAS). Meta Apes is now accessible for Android devices on Google Play. Also, the platform will launch its iOS app soon.
In detail, Meta Apes is set in a post-apocalyptic world, where there is no humanity, and the new era is under the rule of the Apes. Next on the game agenda is space domination. Here, each player will have to work closely with their Gang to become the strongest Clan and win the ultimate race to space.
Speaking about the game, Taylor Shim, business lead at Meta Apes, remarked that the game originated from the idea of creating a community-oriented game that offers audiences something valuable. Significantly, this includes an opportunity for traditional gamers to earn and truly own their in-game assets and a much more interactive and enjoyable experience for blockchain gamers who are primarily looking to earn.
Taylor Shim also opined about the Meta Apes going live on BAS:
Building on an application-focused sidechain helps us avoid a lot of the common issues seen in blockchain gaming like network congestion and giving us a lot more flexibility in terms of the game design & tokenomics.
Meta Apes has established its roots in Web2 and Web3 realms, using Ankr’s gaming software development kit (SDK). The gaming platform has combined fun games that players love in Web2 with the incentives and monetization mechanisms of Web3. More so, Meta Apes has lifted the ante in blockchain gaming by deploying full Web3 capabilities, intuitive game mechanics, and enhanced scalability.
Meanwhile, Ankr, the platform that helped build the BAS, enables developers to create and operate their blockchain working parallel to the BNB Chain mainnet. Furthermore, using dedicated sidechains, apps, and games like Meta Apes will have higher throughput and extremely low transaction fees.
Moreover, Ankr’s new Web3 Gaming SDK unfolds game studios and developers everything they need to create Web3 games like Meta Apes. It also provides features ranging from best-in-class Web3 infrastructure to NFTs, marketplaces, and multi-chain wallet integrations.
