In our ever-growing list of interesting play-to-earn projects in development, we can now add the Enjin-powered MMORPG Dungeon Universe. The game will features all the familiar gameplay elements from an MMO, offering free-to-play gameplay with the ability to win rewards for in-game activities.
Dungeon Universe is an open-world MMORPG that taps into the power of the Enjin ecosystem. This means that game items are NFTs, and players can trade and sell these items as they like. This way players who put lots of time in Dungeon Universe, can gain financial benefits by selling their most valuable assets.
When it comes to available assets, there are weapons, armor, recipes, pets, resources and materials, but also player housing. You will find these items by questing, battling monsters, doing group quests, dungeons, raids, defeating world bosses, battling PVP in the arena, and so on. Obviously gamers can play the game in a guild, but also solo.
Dungeon Universe takes place in the world of Arania, where monsters now dominate. Within this dangerous world, players can setup their own shop and trade items. They can also specialize in certain services, for example to enchant weapons or assist other players in raids. Initially there will be 3 different professions, (wizard, scout and fighter), but more may be added down the line. Personally very interesting will be house ownership, which allows players to build their own cities.
The developers want to launch an early version of Dungeon Universe by the end of the year. In addition they will sell supporter NFTs that offer cosmetics and quality of life improvements, in an effort to fund the development of the game.
