Star Atlas is a space gaming metaverse powered by the Solana blockchain. The full-scale release of this NFT game is scheduled for 2022.

The developers of Star Atlas paid special attention to this graphics. The game is powered by the Unreal Engine 5, making it arguably the most graphically advanced NFT game yet. The developers also promise support for VR technology in the game.

Beautiful graphics make Star Atlas the next step in the development and popularization of NFT games among a wide audience of players who want to not only make money on NFT, but also enjoy the gameplay.

The game takes place in 2620 in outer space. The player can take part in the struggle for economic and political dominance on the side of one of 3 sides - humans, androids, or aliens. The player will have the opportunity to buy and improve spaceships, build stations, explore planets for mining, and, of course, participate in hostilities against other players.

Players can build entire cities and build the micro-economy of the game, or even collaborate and create Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs) to govern specific regions. Players can even extract real monetary value from the virtual in-game items they collect as they play. Unlike most centralized gaming platforms that restrict resale and full ownership of in-game items, Star Atlas is fully decentralized. Players will have full ownership of the assets they accumulate in-game, with the ability to sell NFT-enabled in-game items on secondary NFT marketplaces. The whole idea is to encourage the monetization of the time spent playing Star Atlas, thereby providing a real economic benefit from participation.

The Star Atlas Metaverse provides a unique gaming experience and offers several modes:

  • Role Playing Game. Gamers can choose their own career path and go into trading raw materials, creating retail components, or becoming an ore miner.
  • Space Flight Simulation. Players can manually control their spacecraft in the vast expanse of space, as well as use various equipment: virtual reality head-mounted displays, sophisticated control panels, and more.
  • Grand strategy. The player can interact with a dynamic view of mapped and uncharted regions of space, and make decisions to conquer them.
  • Exploration. Gamers can embark on an exciting space journey to explore the Star Atlas metaverse and potentially discover celestial and terrestrial assets. SIDUS HEROES

  1. Own Marketplace

    Like most NFT games, Star Atlas has its own game marketplace where various in-game NFT items are traded, such as, for example, spaceships, weapons, buildings and structures. Players and investors will be able to earn by mining (farming) the ATLAS in-game currency, which was listed on the stock exchange in early September 2021.

2. In-game tokens

The ATLAS token will support the economy of this entire metaverse. Initially, players will need to use their ATLAS tokens to purchase NFT in-game items such as the crew, spaceship, land, and other necessary equipment to play. Simply put, this token is set as the platform's native token and unit of payment. ATLAS will also be the dominant currency on the Star Atlas NFT marketplace.

Distribution of ATLAS tokens
To begin with, 80% of future ATLAS tokens will be allocated as a reward to players with outstanding achievements in the game. Of the initial amount of ATLAS, 20% will be distributed among the stakeholders. 45% will go to mining stations, and another 15% will go to fundraising to develop the platform.

The POLIS Token is a governance token in the Star Atlas metaverse. POLIS token holders will be able to influence the decisions of the Star Atlas development team.

Distribution of POLIS tokens
The distribution of this token will take place in two stages. 20% of the token supply will be sold in the first phase of the Galactic Asset Offering. The rest of POLIS will be distributed as a reward to those who stake their tokens.

3. Speculating and renting NFT
Also, players will have the opportunity to earn money by speculating and renting in-game NFT items, and participating in staking. In addition, players will be able to unite in guilds, which will be DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations). These organizations will be jointly managed by the holders of the game governance-token POLIS.

5. Anti-inflationary mechanisms
Star Atlas also features an innovative anti-inflationary mechanisms that allows players to engage in riskier activities for greater rewards. For example, the player can explore the deepest regions of the metaverse, thereby risking safe zones in order to earn great rewards. As the player enters the darkest regions of the game, the NFT-based spaceship they use to travel may become lost or irreparably damaged. This will trigger the asset burning process and those players who survive in the danger zones will be able to claim their battle trophies from the salvaged NFTs.

In addition to the anti-inflationary nature of NFTs in Star Atlas, some in-game items are consumable and will therefore be destroyed as soon as they are used. These items will include building materials, fuel, and other items that will temporarily upgrade the player's avatar.

The combination of cutting-edge graphics and play-to-earn earning mechanics in a strategic multiplayer NFT space exploration game sounds promising and definitely deserves the attention of players and investors in 2022.
