Alterverse brings us a new beta for Sky City, the central social hub for their metaverse of virtual worlds and games. Offering new zones to explore, 20 mini-games, and various other activities, this closed beta should give us a good preview of the possibilities of the Alterverse ecosystem.

Though this is officially called a closed beta for Sky City, there are no real requirements for joining. All you have to do is fill out a basic application with an email address and a name! You can sign up here –

The closed beta will run in sessions. One every two weeks. Scheduled to start on June 9th and run through the weekend, this first preview of the game will offer three regions to explore, The Epicenter, Apex Raceway, and Razorback Ridge.

Activities include racing, fishing, mech combat, home decoration, and more! There will be a number of competitions and leaderboards available during the closed beta, with rare NFT prizes for the top competitors.

What is Sky City?

Sky City is the central social hub for all of Alterverse. The team refers to it as a MMOSSG, or Massively Multiplayer Online Social Sandbox Game. In addition to socializing, Sky City will provide access to various mini-games, shopping, and home decoration. Sky City also bridges the shopping experience, allowing players to purchase real life goods from within the game.

Built in Unreal 5 (what isn’t these days?!), Sky City is a 3D, virtual city experience including customizable avatars, built-in voice chat, art galleries, a day/night cycle, and more!

As Sky City gets closer to launch, it will offer shops and apartments to players in the form of NFTs. Additionally, It will include a resource gathering and production economic layer for potential play to earn opportunities.

What is AlterVerse?

AlterVerse is a new metaverse in development. With a decentralized, 3D, multiplayer, interconnected, VR-enabled platform, AlterVerse aims to claim a spot in an increasingly crowded field.

Servers for AlterVerse are player owned, with various customizeable, pre-built environments and games. Altervers automatically adds newly launched game servers to the server list for players to access. At the center of this lies Sky City, a social hub with customizable spaces and storefronts for partnerships. One of those partners Double Protocol, offers an NFT renting system. Not only will Double Protocol own an in-game office, but they will also power the in-game rental market, allowing players to rent out land plots and other items!

Sky City is considered Phase 1 of the AlterVerse. Phase 2 includes Outpost, a FPS, sci-fi shooter with quests, mining and crafting. Phase 3 brings us Rekt, a hard core survival game set on a hostile planet Sky City is currently going through alpha playtests. Expect to see the Sky City Beta, and alphas for both Outpost and Rekt within the first half of this year.
