Web3 and the MMORPG genre seem a perfect match. MMOs typically already feature robust economies, a game facet that thrives on the blockchain — in the right conditions. But balancing a game economy is difficult, especially when that economy has real world value.

And on top of that, developing a AAA MMO-style game is not a feat accomplished during a weekend game jam. Server architecture, game clients, developing PvE and PvP content, artwork for everything, and scaling it up for thousands of players — and that’s just the basics!

But despite the long road ahead, many developers are diving into the web3 world with their MMO games. This includes games across a wide variety of landscapes. From starships and space stations, to apocalyptic wastelands, to standard fantasy worlds.

The web3 MMORPG universe continues to grow rapidly, and a number of games are entering into alpha and beta playtests, giving players a chance to try out this new era of gaming!
