Ubisoft is making another foray into blockchain gaming with the announcement of Champions Tactics: Grimoria Chronicles, a PvP tactical RPG. This move comes after Ubisoft’s previous attempts to integrate NFTs into games like Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, which didn’t quite hit the mark with gamers. Despite the mixed reception of blockchain in gaming, Ubisoft is taking another shot at it with this new title.
A Closer Look at Champions Tactics: Grimoria Chronicles
Details about Champions Tactics: Grimoria Chronicles are still sparse. The game is described as a “PVP tactical RPG experimental game on PC,” where players assemble a team of champions to engage in tactical battles. However, no gameplay footage or screenshots have been released yet, and the reveal trailer only offers dramatic CGI shots.
The Blockchain Aspect of the Game
The game is being built on the Oasys blockchain, touted as a “gaming-optimized and energy-efficient” ecosystem. Interestingly, the game’s FAQ doesn’t delve into the tokenomics of the title, a common focus for blockchain-based games. Even the game’s Discord channel currently lacks detailed information.
Community Reaction and Future Plans
Ubisoft’s decision to continue exploring blockchain gaming has raised eyebrows, especially considering the industry’s mixed feelings about NFTs and blockchain technology in games. The title has a Discord channel, Twitter presence, and newsletter sign-ups, with more information promised soon. However, it remains to be seen how the gaming community will receive this new venture.
