The recent announcement states that Fracture Labs are the sixth company to be chosen out of 90+ applicants.
The company are based in Malta, with team members previously working for renowned game developers such as Bioware, EA, Crytek, and Bungie. The company’s animators have also worked on successful films like Bladerunner 2049, Maze Runner, War of the Planet of the Apes, and Pacific Rim.
Decimated is a post-apocalyptic survival multiplayer game with “true digital scarcity and item ownership.” It is set on a future version of Earth which has been abandoned after hundreds of years of destructive climate change and catastrophic neglect of the environment.
The privileged have been escorted to a habitable Mars, whilst the unworthy are left behind. Players will be able to choose between playing as a citizen living on Earth or a cyborg cop who enforces the law.
Anybody wanting to play Decimated will first need to set up an Ethereum-based wallet. Two wallets recommended by Decimated are MyEtherWallet and MetaMask. From there, users will need to verify their identity by completing Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know-Your-Customer (KYC) checks.
Once these steps have been completed, users will need to purchase DIO tokens, the native token for the Decimated game.
Blockchain technology will be used to manage in-game trading and digital scarcity, and to prove ownership of virtual items which will be stored in a digital wallet on players’ smartphones. Players will be able to use virtual currencies to purchase and customise vehicles, weapons, character customisation, and upgrades.
Those seeking digitally scarce virtual items within the game will be able to trade in-game or through their smartphone wallet using DIO tokens.
The community size currently stands at 9,730. In total, there will be one billion DIO tokens, with just over 5% of them already acquired by users.
