Metaverse Game on Solana Blockchain
This April 16 Mint Will Feature BR1’s Droid NFT
NEW YORK, NY – Building on the marked success of BR1’s first mint earlier this year, the world’s first risk-based shooter game built on the Solana Blockchain will release a mint of NFTs this month on Fractal. Since its first mint in February, the BR1 Metaverse Game has only grown in notoriety, garnering attention from the likes of Twitch Co-Founder Justin Kan, who has become an advisor and investor for BR1. The April mint will feature 5,000 new Droid NFTs available for purchase and use as 1 of 1 unique playable characters within BR1’s hugely successful third-person play-to-earn (P2E) Metaverse. Their flagship game, BR1: Infinite Royale (currently in Open Alpha), is available for download directly in their Discord here. BR1 will do a whitelist giveaway, granting gamers early and guaranteed access to the April 16 mint. This giveaway will be announced on Twitter with a promotional video created by New York City-based creative design agency Keithcity Group. Additional videos produced by the agency will be released leading up to the mint.
BR1, founded by both Evan Ryer (@RyanEver) and Jon Cohen (@JonCohenBR1), recently announced that it has been elected as an early listing for Solana projects on OpenSea, the world’s largest NFT marketplace. Solana is the fastest blockchain in the world and the fastest growing ecosystem in crypto, with over 400 projects spanning DeFi, NFTs, Web3 and more. OpenSea added support for NFTs minted on the Solana Blockchain beginning just this month, April 2022. The integration announcement on Twitter achieved high praise from gamers across platforms including Twitter, Discord and more.
BR1 is known for its unique monetary model, which allows gamers to pay $1 in SOL to spawn and earn the greater of 10% or $1 in SOL for every player killed. Players must own a BR1 NFT to be able to spawn into the BR1 Metaverse game (although the Open Alpha is available to everyone right now). BR1’s first mint of 2,500 Genesis Ape NFTs on Feb 03, 2022 were released at the price of 2 SOL. The floor price for these NFTs increased by roughly 390% to 7.80 SOL as of today. BR1 Metaverse game Characters are traded on Fractal.is, OpenSea and Magic Eden. Currently, BR1 is the leading third-person tactical gaming Metaverse built on the Solana Blockchain.
No Start, No Finish, No TimerWithin BR1: Infinite Royale there is no start or finish to the game. Players are able to spawn into the game at any time. There will likely already be many players distributed across the server/map in various locations when players spawn. Gamers play at their own pace working their way towards the center. When players are eliminated, they are kicked from the server and brought back to the starting screen where they can choose to spawn again back into the server. This game mode promotes quick game-play for those wanting immediate action, while also giving others a more paced-out experience.
Unique Map StyleThe map within BR1: Infinite Royale is a giant island that is designed to support hundreds of players. Like any island, the edges are surrounded by rocky outcrops and sandy beaches. Players spawn on the edge of the map and work their way towards the center to find weapons, ammo and equipment. All items spawn more frequently at the center of the map. As players work their way towards the center, they pass through semi-transparent barriers that limit their ability to work their way back towards the edge. This forces a higher concentration of players towards the center of the map and stops players from farming weaker players.
Survival Style GameplayWhen players spawn into BR1: Infinite Royale, as per the design, they will be far from other players, and have incredibly little access to items such as weapons, ammo, consumables or equipment. Players have many opportunities to gather resources little by little and choose strategically how they’ll play. For example: Will they hide and ambush other players with their limited resources? Or will they hide and make their way towards the center where there are players and a greater opportunity of an ROI on their efforts? For the first few minutes of gameplay, players will be totally alone and struggle to find items. Towards the center, they will run into a higher frequency of players and items.
Unique Generative Character Pipeline
The Bravo Ready team created a generative character rendering pipeline that enabled them to produce totally unique and playable characters within their Unity-based game. Every BR1 Operative is totally one-of-a-kind, like a snowflake. BR1 Operative holders are the key to accessing the game. By using a proprietary pathway for randomizing textures, colors and designs through Blender, each object in the FBX model is given its own unique sequence of combinations that are then hardcoded into the logic for rendering characters in Unity in real-time. Once those characters have been generated, the collection is complete and will render those characters in-game for each owner of the NFT.
