World’s First 8-Bit RPG Game ‘MetaGods’ Launching as Play-To-Earn MMO

MetaGods is the world’s first 8-bit play-to-earn experience, in the form of a multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) built on Binance Smart Chain (BSC). It’s come out of the gates with some fanfare, given that it is backed by some big names including YouTube celebrity Mr Beast, and top YouTube crypto channel, Boxmining.

The Gameplay

MetaGods players are in effect mythological demigods trying to gain ascension through battle in either Atlantis (casual) mode or Zion, the hardcore mode where you have only one chance to play for legendary loot. Your character, equipment and loot are stored as non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and can be sold or bought on the digital marketplace, giving players the chance to monetise their time in the game.

You can play as a Tank, DPS, or Healer against hordes of enemies and earn some loot. Playing with friends is encouraged with the push to Social GameFi, where gamers are rewarded: “With the holy trinity of MMO, you have a better chance to win against the pantheon to earn those sweet, sweet APY rewards,” according to the roadmap.

MetaGods can be played in either Atlantis (casual) or Zion (hardcore) modes.

Dual Token System Applies

The game incorporates a dual token system:

  • $MGOD is used for adventure packs, to enter raids, and in the marketplace; and
  • $RELIC is used in-game to forge new weapons, armour, or anything available in the crafting section.

In short, $MGOD is used as the governance token of the project and can be used to enter special events while $RELIC is an earnable in-game currency that supports the play-to-earn structure of MetaGods.


Mint Your Own NFTs

The game allows you to mint your own NFTs so that you can “fight your way through epic dungeons and earn loot”. With each character as a generative NFT, there are many roles that you can play to support your team whether you are a healer, a DPS or a tank.

Within that realm, NFTs are not just your avatar, but are your in-game character. Each character NFT will in turn have randomly generated character stats, as well as equipment including weaponry and armour.

NFT characters will have randomly generated equipment.

Battle the Gods for APY

To keep the game interesting there will be weekly special events with boss challenges, where a high APY incentive is provided for the community to band together and fight against the gods. There will also be tournaments and airdrops on special occasions for players who stick for the long run.

The official game release is set for Q1 of 2022, according to the roadmap, and with the game currently on BSC there are plans to integrate Solana as soon as possible with the other chains to follow. The project has raised US$3 million in funding from its supporting investors to build up the game, economy, and community.

MetaGods roadmap

Many new GameFi projects rely on their community and participation to make everything work. Recent project Genopets, for example, which uses players’ fitness data for the game, raised US$8.3 million in seed funding.

How to Get Involved

MetaGods announced the NFT sale via Twitter, which at the time of publication, kicks off in 10 hours.

Users keen to get involved should visit MetaGod’s NFT raffle sale page, which provides step-by-step instructions on how to participate.
