Digits are collectible in-game vehicles, weapons, and equipment that give players unprecedented ways to connect with and enjoy more value from the video games they love.
Every digit is a unique collectible that features its own serial number, has an active utility value, and comes with its own certificate of ownership stored on blockchain.
“Our long-term efforts led us to understand how blockchain’s decentralized approach could genuinely make players stakeholders of our games, in a way that is also sustainable for our industry, placing back into their hands the value they generate through the time they spend, the items they buy or the content they create online,” said Nicolas Pouard, VP of Ubisoft’s Strategic Innovation Lab.
“Ubisoft Quartz is the first building block in our ambitious vision for developing a true metaverse. And it can’t come to life without overcoming blockchain’s earlyform limitations for gaming, including scalability and energy consumption.”
Ubisoft Quartz will be available in beta beginning December 9 at 6 PM UTC in the United States, Canada, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Australia, and Brazil.
As part of the experiment, Digits will be rewarded to early adopters on December 9, 12, and 15.
