The closed alpha for MegaWorld Express has arrived, allowing the first wave of players a chance to try out the new, free, to play, play to earn, delivery system that also ties back into the city building aspect of the game!
Mega World moves to a new phase, adding a free to play economic loop that allows building owners to receive a production boost by paying for special deliveries from players navigating the 3D world with their avatar.
Players who were already involved with MegaWorld in pretty much any way should have access to this alpha. You do need to login to the website and link your wallet first though. After that you can access the Express Delivery alpha from your profile page. Also, anybody who has alpha access can invite 10 other players.
What is Express Delivery?
MegaWorld Express Delivery has two basic parts — creating delivery orders, and completing delivery orders. Owners of Energy, Production, and Industrial buildings can create delivery quests for players. The more quests that are completed for a building, the bigger the production bonus — potentially as high as 75%! The building owner also sets a fee that they are willing to pay, in MEGA tokens. Players in the 3D world can look up available deliveries at any time using their phone, and then choose to accept and complete as many as they want.
Deliveries just involve traveling from one building to another. But, some destinations may lie in other districts, requiring players to use public transportation (which costs a small fee of MEGA tokens), to get there. Though players do also have the option of just grabbing the nearest vehicle and driving it away GTA style — you don’t even have to worry about being chased by the police!
For now deliveries all have fixed rewards. But, in a future update, the amount of rewards given will vary based on the time it took to complete the delivery.
This also ties into the recent building customization and rental feature. Players can accumulate as much Mega as they want in-game by doing deliveries. But, if they want to withdraw that Mega to cash out, they will need to have established residency by renting out a house or apartment.
What is MegaWorld?
MegaWorld is a virtual city and economic simulation resembling a modern city with streets, buildings, cars, etc. In this game, players can own Citizens, Pets, Land Plots, and even whole Districts. The basic game features players walking (or driving) around the city, completing tasks, and earning MEGA tokens. The game will be free to play, though completing certain tasks may require owning a Citizen NFT.
For those who wish to be more invested, plot ownership allows players to create a variety of buildings from homes, to offices, to factories. Players can even choose to create a custom building on their plot! Buildings earn income in various ways, though they also require upkeep and have a chance to be hit by natural disasters. Players create most of the in-game items, including new Citizens.
Mega World has built out a complex economy with three cities across three interconnected blockchains — Ethereum, Tron, and Binance Chain.
