Ubisoft announced the details of this new project in a tweet, stating that these NFTs will be provided through Ubisoft Quartz. These NFTs will allow users to gain access to “the first playable and energy-efficient NFTs.”

The NFTs will be stored on the Tezos blockchain. Tezos runs through a proof-of-stake consensus; hence these NFTs will be minted in an environmental;-friendly manner.

The firm also notes that Ubisoft Quartz will offer,

A new experience for our players, built upon our vision of creating an ever-greater connection between you and the game worlds you love.

Ubisoft also states that gamers will have autonomy and agency when using the in-game assets. Ubisoft has stated that the first NFTs will be released in beta. The NFTs will feature in-game gear, and they can be bought using cryptocurrencies.

The in-game items will be non-fungible in that they all have a unique serial number. The NFTs can be traded by players on the Tezos blockchain, even if they do not play Ghost Recon or other games compatible with NFTs. However, the gamer tags of the previous owners will still be contained in the NFTs.

NFTs in the gaming sector

Ubisoft is one of the most popular gaming platforms. Some of the popular games on the platform include Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry, which have made multi-million sales. Ubisoft also recently released Valhalla, which recorded 1.8M sales in the first week.

Due to its growing popularity, if the firm can venture into NFTs, it would be a whole new revolutionary aspect to the gaming sector.

Other gaming platforms have also been looking towards NFTs, which has led to the increased popularity of play-to-earn platforms. However, the adoption of NFTs in gaming is yet to reach the desired levels because of the backlash over the impact of NFTs on the environment.
