The metaverse is the next generation of the world wide web – a three-dimensional virtual space built on cutting edge technologies like augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), blockchain and non-fungible tokens, artificial intelligence, and more. It turns the web into a shared experience where you can meet other people, own digital assets, and immerse yourself into a persistent virtual world.
While the concept sounds futuristic and it’s early days yet for the metaverse, there are some games that showcase the sort of experiences and technologies we can look forward to in the not-too-distant future. Alcatel highlights some great Android games that incorporate features like NFTs, virtual worlds and AR/VR.
Compete with your party of heroes against other player’s parties or AI-controlled ones to climb the ladder and to win heroic rewards. Create and collect fully customisable hero NFTs and use them in PvP games, story-based AI-battles or custom campaigns to earn $COA and heroic rewards to improve your heroes.
