Microsoft Gives Grant To Blockchain-Based Web3 Game StarHeroes As Historic Partnership Gets Underway

StarHeroes just received a Microsoft grant, which many consider to be a game-changing feat. As a result, the blockchain-based game can now be found on Azure PlayFab, among titles like Forza Horizon, Sea of Thieves, and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.

This grant also reflects a shift in big corporations’ attitudes, as a growing number of institutional enterprises, firms, and large-scale organizations have indicated a basic interest in adopting blockchain technology into their daily routines, services, products, and features. This is also the first time that a large firm like Microsoft has provided such a grant to a Web3 game.

What sets StarHeroes apart?

StarHeroes is a third-person space shooter with dynamic space battles in a fairly large planet available for exploration and conflict in two multiplayer modes: ranking and adventure. The production also exemplifies the Web3-based Play To Earn  concept, which lets users earn real money in exchange for playing the game. It is simply because everyone may try their hand at this game without having to invest any money in it and, believe it or not, make real money just for playing for free.

While it is true that many parts of this production are in the form of virtual, one-of-a-kind tokens, it does not mean that there aren’t any Free To Play alternatives. Again, StarHeroes is a game for everyone, and as a consequence, both blockchain players and traditional gamers may participate in the same game, with the emphasis on skills, determination, strategy, and player collaboration. StarHeroes focuses on player competition and interaction in terms of gameplay, and both offensive and defensive troops are available to construct the most competitive squad (fleet). As a result, the game provides a competitive and active PvP environment, which is one of the most popular types of gaming available.

A Historic Partnership

The developers recently acknowledged the aforementioned big achievement, particularly StarHeroes winning a grant from Microsoft, a tech titan. This award enables them to collaborate with prominent studios such as Ubisoft and Microsoft Studios. All of these pave the way for huge success by creating several outstanding chances for development – both for StarHeroes and its creators. Ubisoft, in example, is recognized for producing famous titles such as ‘Prince of Persia’ and ‘Assassin’s Creed,’ to mention a few.

While some players may be suspicious of the Play And Earn and NFT-verse game ideas, StarHeroes shows a lot of promise in a variety of ways. Naturally, major corporations must believe this as well, given that Microsoft has acknowledged the game and its potential. Perhaps more crucially, the collaboration with Microsoft will open the door for blockchain gaming in general, with the objective of allowing several more titles to cooperate with large firms in the future.

What kind of potential does StarHeroes have for the future?

The game has been in development for almost two years, and now StarHeroes is finally gathering traction and is quickly generating headlines in both crypto and traditional media. As a result, the development team comprises a number of former CD Projekt Red personnel who worked on titles such as ‘The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’ and ‘Cyberpunk 2077,’ suggesting that the two years spent creating StarHeroes were well spent.

In general, the StarHeroes creators see tremendous promise in blockchain-based eSports games. Even though these are not yet ubiquitous, StarHeroes might be a promising start for blockchain games in terms of attracting traditional gamers’ interest. With this in mind, the gameplay of StarHeroes has been modified to facilitate the organization of eSports tournaments, which is also the direction the developers intend to take given the sheer popularity and success of the eSports industry, which includes games such as ‘League of Legends,’ ‘Starcraft,’ and ‘DOTA 2’.

Simply put, StarHeroes has the potential to not only be successful in and of itself, but also to pave the way for new blockchain-based games.
