AAA-quality, game-ready Hero NFTs grant owners access to Unioverse games
BOULDER, Colo. — Random Games, a development studio reinventing the entertainment business with its game-first, community-owned franchise the Unioverse, announced today the reveal of Reyu Genesis, its first collection of Hero NFTs. Emerging from the story of the Unioverse, Reyu is a Ja’Din warrior and one of the main characters in the epic sci-fi franchise.
Each Hero NFT will be unique across dozens of visual parameters, and provides real utility by granting holders access to forthcoming Unioverse games. There will be 20,000 unique Reyu Genesis Hero NFTs available across different rarities, each one a fully-rendered, 3D, AAA-quality, game-ready character. Eleven of the most rare Reyus will comprise the Pinnacle Collection.
“Our community is the bedrock of the Unioverse, and we are eternally grateful to the early adopters who have been actively engaged in our community and following along with our development,” said Tony Harman, CEO and CoFounder of Random Games. “Giving away this Reyu Genesis Hero NFT collection is our way of saying thank you, and get ready for all the great things ahead!”
The Reyu Genesis Hero NFT mint will be free on Ethereum for those who have been collecting Unioverse Collectibles and earned Protens, the Unioverse equivalent of loyalty points. In the lore of the Unioverse, Protens are the energy source that powers all of the alien technology. In the real world, Protens are earned by collecting the free Unioverse Collectible NFTs. The more Unioverse Collectibles held, and the longer they are held, the more Protens a community member can earn. With enough Protens, community members can redeem them for other digital assets such as the Reyu Genesis Hero NFT.
Next-gen NFTS: 3D Unioverse Hero NFTs offer real utility
Owning a Unioverse Hero NFT will provide access to all forthcoming Unioverse games, with the ability to play as that character across different types of games. The Unioverse viewer allows users to browse thousands of unique next-generation, fully-rendered 3D Unioverse Heroes across all rarities— and includes manual controls to spin, tilt, pan and zoom in to inspect every little detail of the AAA-quality NFTs.
