The game is expected to go live by the middle of 2022 after it undergoes ongoing accelerated development. The team is also aiming to launch its Alpha & Beta version with a PVP tournament.
Delysium is a game set in 2045, depicting when humans discover a marvelous land in the decentralized virtual world and name it “Delysium”. This discovery starts a battle between the real and the virtual world where there are digitized versions of real human beings living with MetaBeings who are native residents born in the Metaverse.
Players can decide the fate and future of Delysium by fighting and winning a series of battles to protect and foster their interests through the power and resources they possess. The game has several features such as cyberpunk style, open-world, MMORPG, and UGC which make the gaming experience amazing.
There are various game modes that players can join to earn loot boxes (tokens, NFTs, game resources, etc.). They can then sell the loot boxes in the marketplace or consume them to upgrade the character/weapon/clothing with higher numerical values in PVE modes. They can also use the proceeds to craft buildings and create weapons/cyber bodies with skins by themselves, etc.
In addition, players will be able to equip, combine or upgrade their physical assets such as MetaBeings, virtual creatures, cyber bodies, weapons, vehicles, environmental objects through self-crafting or trading. The game also enables them to easily create their own narrative assets, including dialogue models, behavioral models, decision-making models, storylines, missions, and other personalized entertainment scenarios made up of AI-powered MetaBeings.
Delysium is different in that while the traditional web3 games are represented by Turn-Based Strategy games or Trading Card Games, it emphasizes diversified and supreme 3A open-world MMORPG experiences. This includes battle, exploration, construction, cultivation, social, and AI-driven MetaBeing gameplays, which makes “Play to Earn” truly “Fun to Play, Play and Earn”.
