Neon Machine, the gaming company, has recently raised $20 million in funding for its upcoming Web3 game “Shrapnel.” Earlier, there was another successful seed funding round in June 2021, where Neon Machine secured $10.5 million.
Furthermore, renowned investors, including Polychain Capital, Griffin Gaming Partners, Brevan Howard Digital, Franklin Templeton, IOSG Ventures, and Tess Ventures, supported the funding. Not to mention, the support from these companies has strengthened the future prospects of the game.
Neon Machine’s Unique AAA Game
The highly anticipated game “Shrapnel,” also known as an AAA game, stands out as an extraordinary gaming experience. It has top-notch production, high budgeting, and an inclusive marketing strategy. Moreover, it is a first-person shooter game and features multiplayer with an “extraction” mechanism. Also, players have the task of exiting the game while carrying in-game loot to retain it. Hence, creating a layer of challenges and excitement.
Additionally, “Shrapnel” is being compared to the popular game “Call of Duty: Warzone” by Microsoft’s Activision Blizzard Studio. Therefore, players can expect a thrilling experience. However, there is one thing that makes “Shrapnel” stand out. The game is integrated with Web3 and blockchain technology, and the players can have complete ownership of their in-game assets. Besides, it ensures a sense of security and ownership among the players.
Neon Machine has plans to provide a modding toolset that will allow players to incorporate additional blockchain assets into the game. By doing so, Neon Machine plans to further enhance the gaming experience and invite chances for creativity.
Future Prospects for Neon Machine’s Shrapnel
The company has scheduled an early-access testing phase for “Shrapnel” in December this year. And it will only be available to paid subscribers. What’s more, this phase will serve as a chance for the development team to gather feedback and refine the game before its official release.
Soon, Neon Machine aims to launch “Shrapnel” as a free-to-play game in 2024. Further, it will expand its accessibility to a wider audience. Besides, “Shrapnel” is going to become a renowned player in the gaming industry with its innovative features and strong development. Finally, Web3 and blockchain technology will redefine the gaming landscape and provide players with a more immersive gaming experience.
