Competing with Giants

The strides we’ve made with “The Metaverse Services” technology set us on a competitive footing with industry giants like Improbable, Metagravity, and Hadean. Each of these entities has made their mark by pushing the envelope of what’s possible within virtual worlds. Yet, the progress we’ve achieved signifies a pivotal moment in the race to build a metaverse that can support vast numbers of users without compromising on performance, quality, or user experience.

The Future of the Metaverse

Our achievements in tackling “The Metaverse Problem” are more than technical milestones; they are harbingers of a new era in digital interaction. By enabling a high-density user environment, we’re opening the doors to unprecedented levels of engagement, collaboration, and community within the metaverse. This isn’t just about playing games side by side; it’s about creating a rich, dynamic universe where users can live, work, and forge meaningful connections across digital landscapes.

The journey doesn’t end here. As we continue to refine and expand our Metaverse Services, we remain committed to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, ensuring that the future of the metaverse is as boundless as our collective imagination.

With a total of 10,000 NFTs/SFTs in our arsenal, players will have access to a diverse array of vehicles, each offering its unique blend of speed, style, and performance.

That’s why each vehicle in our collection comes with the option to apply various skins, allowing players to personalize their rides and make a statement on the track.

Work in progress

Gear Up for the Race of a Lifetime

As we prepare to unleash our vehicle collection upon the streets of Cyberpunk City, we invite you to gear up for the race of a lifetime. Whether you’re a seasoned racing veteran or a newcomer to the world of high-speed thrills, there’s never been a better time to join us on the track. Get ready to rev your engines, push the limits, and experience the adrenaline rush like never before in Cyberpunk City’s revolutionary racing game mode.

Team Deathmatch Map:

In the heart of Cyberpunk City’s gaming universe, the battlegrounds of our Team Deathmatch mode are undergoing a transformation like never before. After extensive internal deliberation and feedback, we decided to redesign of our Team Deathmatch map — a strategic masterpiece poised to redefine competitive gameplay.

The Importance of Balance

In the fast-paced world of Team Deathmatch, every corner, every chokepoint, and every vantage point matters. Achieving perfect balance is not just a goal; it’s a necessity for fostering a competitive environment where skill, strategy, and teamwork reign supreme. That’s why we’ve taken a meticulous approach to redesigning our map, ensuring that every element contributes to a balanced and exhilarating gameplay experience.

With our revamped map, players can expect a whole new level of strategic warfare. From carefully crafted sightlines to strategically placed cover, every inch of the battlefield has been optimized to encourage tactical thinking and teamwork. Whether you’re coordinating a flanking maneuver with your squad or holding down a key position against the enemy onslaught, every decision you make will have a profound impact on the outcome of the match.

At Cyberpunk City, we believe that competition is at the heart of gaming. That’s why we’re committed to delivering a Team Deathmatch experience that not only challenges players’ skills but also ignites their competitive spirit. By redesigning the map, we’re leveling the playing field and putting the focus squarely on skill, strategy, and teamwork. Get ready to dive into the fray, forge new alliances, and emerge victorious in the ultimate test of combat prowess.

Character Inventory System:

In the ever-evolving world of game development, progress in multiple areas is key to delivering an immersive and seamless gaming experience. At Cyberpunk City, we’re excited to unveil one such development: our inventory system. Designed specifically for our Battle Royale game mode, this feature promises to revolutionize the way players interact with their surroundings and manage their resources.

Inventory UI Prototype — WIP

Loot with Precision

In Battle Royale, every item counts. From weapons and ammunition to health packs and utility items, the ability to loot effectively can mean the difference between victory and defeat. Our inventory system empowers players to loot with precision, quickly identifying and distinguishing between different items to ensure they’re always equipped for the challenges that lie ahead.

Airdrop System

In the heart-pounding world of Cyberpunk City’s Battle Royale mode, survival hinges on more than just quick reflexes and sharpshooting skills — it’s also about making strategic decisions that can mean the difference between victory and defeat. One such decision revolves around a crucial aspect of the game: airdrops.

The Two Faces of Airdrops

Airdrops in our Battle Royale mode come in two distinct varieties, each with its own set of advantages and risks:

1. Airdrop Beam:

  • The airdrop beam is a rare and coveted item that players can use to summon an airdrop to their location.
  • Activating the airdrop beam sends a signal to an aircraft, prompting it to drop an airdrop at the specified coordinates.
  • While the airdrop beam offers the convenience of bringing supplies directly to you, it also comes with a significant risk: the bright laser light emitted by the beam acts as a beacon, drawing the attention of nearby enemies. Players must weigh the potential rewards of securing valuable loot against the heightened risk of attracting hostile forces.

2. Random Airdrops:

  • In addition to airdrops summoned by players, random airdrops occur sporadically at various points throughout the game.
  • These airdrops provide an element of unpredictability, offering players the chance to stumble upon valuable loot in unexpected locations.
  • However, the randomness of these airdrops means that players must remain vigilant and adaptable, as they never know when or where the next one will appear.

Zipline & Ascender

In the dynamic and fast-paced environment of Battle Royale mode, players are constantly seeking ways to gain a tactical edge over their opponents. Understanding this need for speed, agility, and strategic positioning, we’re excited to introduce two game-changing mobility enhancements: Zipline and Ascender. These features are designed to add an extra layer of strategy and fun, allowing players to swiftly move from one location to another, gain high ground, or escape tight situations with ease.

Zipline: Speed and Stealth

The Zipline offers players a rapid and stealthy means of traversing the map. Positioned strategically across various points of interest, Ziplines enable combatants to quickly move between locations without the noise or visibility that comes with vehicles. This tool is perfect for:

  • Fast-paced gameplay: Players can zip across to different areas of the map, making it easier to reposition, flank enemies, or make a swift escape.
  • Stealthy movements: Unlike vehicles, Ziplines provide a quieter alternative for moving around, allowing players to maintain the element of surprise.
  • Engaging in combat: Players can engage enemies from the Zipline, adding an exhilarating layer to shootouts and ambushes.

Ascender: Vertical Mobility

Ascenders, on the other hand, offer a unique solution to vertical mobility challenges within the game. These devices allow players to quickly ascend or descend buildings, cliffs, and other tall structures, opening up new avenues for strategic play. The Ascender is key for:

  • Gaining high ground: Quickly move to advantageous positions for better sightlines and cover.
  • Avoiding danger: Escape from or circumvent potentially dangerous situations by moving vertically, where opponents might not expect.
  • Exploring new areas: Access previously unreachable spots for sniping, scouting, or simply finding the best loot.

Strategy and Fun Combined

Both Zipline and Ascender are integrated into the game with the goal of enhancing player experience by providing more options for movement, strategy, and engagement. These features encourage players to think creatively about their approach to the game, whether it’s making a dramatic entrance into a firefight, executing a strategic retreat, or simply enjoying the thrill of moving through the game world in new and exciting ways.

  • Encouraging diverse strategies: Players can now plan and execute more complex strategies, utilizing the vertical and horizontal mobility provided by Ascenders and Ziplines.
  • Enhancing the game’s pace: These mobility tools can significantly speed up gameplay, encouraging more engagements and reducing downtime.
  • Increasing enjoyment: The sheer fun of zipping and ascending around the map adds a new dimension to the game, keeping the gameplay fresh and engaging.

Training Map

In Cyberpunk City, the importance of skill development and adaptation to new game features cannot be overstated. Recognizing this, we’re excited to introduce a dedicated Training Map, designed to not only enhance player skills but also serve as a testing ground for future game updates. This innovative approach aims to elevate player readiness before the beta release and ensure transparent progress tracking throughout the game’s development.

Key Features of the Training Map

  • Comprehensive Skill Enhancement: The Training Map incorporates essential gameplay mechanics such as targeting with dummy targets, parachuting, driving, shooting, grenade throwing, and health regeneration. These features are meticulously designed to provide a holistic training environment that caters to both new players seeking to learn the basics and veterans aiming to refine their tactics and strategies.
  • Testing Ground for Upcoming Features: Beyond skill development, the Training Map offers a unique opportunity for players to experience and provide feedback on upcoming game features. This direct engagement with the community is invaluable for refining these features before their official release, ensuring they meet our players’ expectations and enhance the overall gameplay experience.
  • Continuous Updates with xGameLauncher: To ensure that the Training Map remains a cutting-edge training and testing environment, it will be supported by the innovative xGameLauncher. This self-updating technology means that players won’t need to reinstall the game with every update. Instead, future updates, ranging from 100 to 500 MB, will be seamlessly integrated, allowing players to experience the latest enhancements as if they were testing them right from our office.

The Role of xGameLauncher

Launcher Wireframe — WIP

xGameLauncher is poised to redefine the gaming landscape by integrating groundbreaking features that leverage the full potential of blockchain technology. This platform is not merely a game launcher; it’s a comprehensive gateway that connects players to a universe of blockchain-based gaming and decentralized applications (dApps), setting a new benchmark for the gaming ecosystem.

Key Features of xGameLauncher

  • Blockchain Wallet Integration: At its core, xGameLauncher will support direct integration with MultiversX Defi wallet and, eventually, MetaMask. This feature enables seamless native blockchain transactions, allowing players to manage their digital assets and in-game transactions effortlessly within the launcher itself. The integration aims to provide a secure, efficient, and user-friendly experience for all blockchain transactions related to the gaming ecosystem.
  • Ecosystem Support for Other Projects: xGameLauncher extends its utility beyond a single game or platform by offering free access to other projects within the ecosystem. This initiative is designed to save these projects significant time and resources that would otherwise be spent developing or integrating with a top-tier launcher. By fostering a collaborative environment, xGameLauncher enhances the overall value and accessibility of blockchain gaming.
  • Social Features and Future Updates: With upcoming updates, xGameLauncher will introduce a friends system, allowing players to add people they meet in-game to their friends list. This feature will enable players to easily team up and enjoy games together, fostering a more connected and social gaming community. The emphasis on social connectivity within the launcher enriches the gaming experience by making it more interactive and enjoyable.
  • Direct Access to NFT Marketplace: A future update will integrate direct access to an NFT marketplace right within the launcher. This integration aims to streamline the user experience by eliminating the need for separate logins for each dApp and reducing dependency on web browsers for accessing NFT marketplaces. Players will have a one-stop solution for browsing, buying, selling, and trading NFTs, making digital asset management more accessible and efficient.
  • Ultimate Goal: Becoming a Game Store: The ultimate vision for xGameLauncher is to evolve into a comprehensive game store. This ambition goes beyond traditional game launching functionalities to create a unified platform where users can discover, purchase, and play games, manage digital assets, and engage with a global community of gamers and developers. By integrating gaming with blockchain technology and NFTs, xGameLauncher aims to offer a unique and enriched gaming ecosystem that caters to the needs and preferences of modern gamers.
