The upcoming blockchain-powered space epic Infinite Fleet will feature spaceships that can turn into a robot. This gameplay detail has been revealed in their latest trailer Counterattack. The trailer features voices from several famous voice actors, including Briand Drummond and Kira Buckland.
Pixelmatic didn’t specifically reveal this gameplay detail in their trailer, but when asked about the ship transformations studio boss Samson Mow simply answered: “Yes.” As a result it looks like Infinite Fleet isn’t only a space epic, but also combines elements from anime series like Robotech and Gundam.
In the trailer you can hear the voices of Brian Drummond, who also played Vegeta in Dragon Ball Z. In addition there’s Kira Buckland, known for her voice as B2 in the video game Nier: Automata, and Willy Tybur, who voiced in Attack on Titan.
Infinite Fleet running on Bitcoin blockchain
Infinite Fleet is a space MMO running on blockchain technology. In this particular case the project uses the layer-2 solution Liquid on the Bitcoin blockchain. This solution allows Pixelmatic to create a cryptocurrency especially for all in-game transactions, while the Liquid solution also stores ownership over in-game assets.
There will only be a limited amount of INF on the market. Players will be able to earn INF by for example doing missions. The developers call this Proof-of-Participation. Of course players could also acquire the cryptocurrency once other players start trading it on an exchange.
What is Infinite Fleet?
In Infinite Fleet the player is a commander within the United Sol Federation Combined Fleet, because of this role players need to defeat an alien threat. Behind every choice are deeper choices, which allow for a narrative driven by the players. As a result the game allows players to build and customize their fleet, secure territories, and move into space. You can play the game alone, but according to the developers co-op gameplay is the best. Whether the robot spaceships of Infinite Fleet can also combine into a bigger robot, is not known yet.
Pixelmatic is making Infinite Fleet, as they announced in April. Developers from the studio have experience in the strategy genre. They’ve worked on titles like Age of Empires 4, Dawn of War and Homeworld. Samson Mow is heading the studio, as well as blockchain company Blockstream. Not entirely surprising, considering Blockstream is also the company behind the Liquid Network, which they used for the deployment of the INF currency. More details can be found on their website.
