Just about each time we put up a online game trailer on this web site, it’s both as a result of we expect it’s cool, or we’re utilizing it as an example some form of gameplay or cinematic level. On this case, although, we’re doing neither.
On this case, we’re right here to marvel. To surprise. To snigger, even. At Symbiogenesis, aka Sq. Enix’s NFT recreation, which obtained its first “correct” trailer at this time.
It is a main mission for the corporate! That is partly why they offloaded Tomb Raider! So they might….make a recreation about…promoting NFTs. That’s it. That’s what this recreation is about (not that you possibly can work out anything from that barren footage). It’s about Sq. Enix making 10,000 NFTs then attempting to promote them in a online game as gadgets, in The Yr Of Our Lord 2023, a complete yr after the ass fell out of the entire NFT rip-off and the one folks left to care are the idiots left holding the bag, the assholes with names like LamboGuy6352349234.eth.
Wait, what’s the sport truly about?
Who is aware of! Symbiogenesis’ web site is extremely imprecise, leaving info on every part from gameplay to story languishing in a short, text-based FAQ.
When that trailer says “untangle the story”, what they imply is that (as reported by GamesHub):
Sq. Enix has mentioned that each one story chapters will be accomplished and ‘performed to the top even with out having any Character NFT’ however these in-game purchases will arrive with particular ‘utility for individuals who maintain the NFT collectible artwork’. Gamers with Character NFTs will be capable of learn distinctive tales, achieve rank expertise factors simply, create a ‘reproduction’ of their character, and achieve extra NFT artwork when missions are cleared.
Some story parts can be withheld from gamers who don’t buy NFTs, impacting the general gameplay expertise.
Unbelievable. That is the corporate that gave the world Remaining Fantasy. For context, let’s recap how all of us, Sq. Enix included, obtained right here. And nothing illustrates that higher than this succession of headlines:
