This is not the first time that crypto enthusiasts are learning about Ubisoft and the approach of the company to launch non-fungible tokens and other decentralized projects. The debate has been struck many times in the past with the company dabbling with the idea on the Internet and tempting the fans that they are going to do something with it, but in the end, the trail always went cold, and there was no official decision whether or not there will be an NFT project initiated by Ubisoft.
But this time around, it is kind of official as it has finally officially announced that the game development company will be enabling in-game NFTs. The company is going to start doing that with Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint. The NFT platform which Ubisoft has developed for this very purpose currently runs on Tezos, which is a proof of stake blockchain platform. Even back in the day, Ubisoft was the first video game publisher to ever take an interest in blockchain technology and try to experiment with the idea of crypto-oriented games and the concept of decentralization.
The publisher has many other successful projects under its hood, such as Assassin’s Creed games, and the fan following that this series has received over the years is simply immersive. Assassin’s creed is the single most elementary franchise orchestrated by Ubisoft, and there are hints of a new game coming up in the Assassin’s Creed series which will be completely online and to stuff non-fungible tokens in it would be extremely relatable and the right choice to move on with this transition. But for some reason, Ubisoft has chosen its other game that is Ghost Recon Breakpoint, to enable the non-fungible tokens for the first time.
The overall idea with this concept is that as players continue to play an online session, they will end up running into non-fungible tokens which they can collect and associate with their gaming profiles. They can, later on, use these tokens to purchase many in-game assets or even use them for trading a dedicated element of the game, such as a new weapon or a map with another friend that is also is in the game. This is truly an impactful opportunity for the gaming industry, and if this thing goes well, then other gaming publishers will be making up their minds to add NFTs in their own games.
