Earn and enjoy in this NFT RPG
Metalands is a free-to-play role-playing game developed by a creative team of the same name. In this blockchain-enabled first-person shooter, you explore an open world and earn items that can be sold or traded as a non-fungible token (NFT) outside the game.
It is an NFT game, much like Axie Infinity and Cryptokitties. However, its gameplay and aesthetics are closer to hit FPS games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive or Call of Duty. Its various game modes offer different opportunities to earn NFTs, which in turn can be sold and made into real cash.
From in-game bunkers to the real world
The developers behind Metalands promise not only an enjoyable FPS experience but also a robust economy that will allow a smooth and safe transition of in-game assets to cryptocurrency to real-world money. Aside from the game itself, it will be integrated with a trading platform and a decentralized app (dapp) that are all connected with a valid blockchain wallet on one end and the players’ game accounts on the other.
As for the game, players can choose from an open-world Story mode and a multiplayer battle mode–both of which feature a play-to-earn mechanism. Furthermore, the game also allows for a wide range of customization options, not only for their characters and weapons but also for their bunkers. All of these cosmetic items can also be recovered from the game and traded as NFTs.
So far, the game works well, although it has a few bugs or glitches in-game such as enemies spawning even after the game clock ends. Some players also reported the leaderboard did not show the usernames. However, the game maintains an active community, with the devs promising quick responses to player concerns. This makes the game worth trying, although the cryptocurrency system is a different matter altogether.
A good free shooter
If you’re looking for a play-to-earn version of CS:GO, Metalands is a good suggestion. It nails down the shooting mechanics, plus offers a wide range of customization options. However, apart from the shooting aspect, the game also integrates with a complete NFT and cryptocurrency platform, directly connecting with your blockchain wallet. Though the game still has persisting bugs, it’s still worth a try.
