Through this new partnership, users will now be able to connect their MetaMask wallet onto the HyperPlay platform so that they can carry in-game tokens, achievements and NFTs.
“With HyperPlay, players can carry their wallet, tokens, NFTs, and achievements into every game with web3 capabilities,” the team explains on their Twitter thread.
MetaMask also further explains that the beta for the HyperPlay x MetaMask wallet feature will be launched sometime early February next year.
“HyperPlay is powered by the new MetaMask SDK, and plans to launch a developer alpha this month along with an end-user beta in early February.”
Gaming x NFTs
Not just MetaMask, these past months many Web3 platforms seem to have focused on building and connecting the gaming space more and more towards Web3 and blockchain, with many in the community claiming that blockchain technology opens up many opportunities in gaming.
Earlier in September, CEO of one of the biggest NFT marketplaces Magic Eden even said himself that NFTs “unlock something new” for game developers. According to CEO Jack Lu, he and his team are waiting for a ‘tidal shift’ to take place where developers and game studios begin to recognize more and more about the potential of Web3 technology in gaming.
