No one will be surprised by my saying that the gaming industry has been hitting different lately, producing incredible results with their ramp-up rates and total capitalization. This boom can be easily explained by the influx of new players as a result of the pandemic and the increased demand for practical and intuitive online games, especially on mobile platforms. 

While most traditional games require an investment from the player, where they either have to pay the full price, the partial price, or for additional content. The Play-to-Earn (P2E) model offers a more appealing and user-friendly deal. Even though some P2E games do require an initial investment for the purchase of NFT characters, what players get in return is the opportunity to earn good money. To achieve this objective, blockchain and NFT technologies are used in the development of such games.

I genuinely did my best to conduct thorough research, focusing on the best games with a space theme. I believe that I have managed to identify some of the hottest and most promising Play-to-Earn projects out there. But enough ranting, let’s go over the 4 best blockchain-based games that can truly be сonsidered a solid way to generate profits while enjoying thrilling gameplay.

Star Atlas

Star Atlas is a virtual gaming metaverse, set in 2620. The world is divided into several parts: the MUD Territory governed by humankind, the ONI Region that is a consortium of alien races and the Ustur Sector controlled by sentient androids. 

These newly-formed factions are fighting for survival, being in constant search of resources, territorial conquests and political domination. Players are tasked with changing the destiny of the intergalactic conflict, while having the chance to earn assets, thanks to its P2E model. 

The Star Atlas metaverse aims to provide a unique gaming experience and offers a few gaming modes:

  • Role-Playing Game. Gamers can choose their own career path and trade raw materials, create retail components or become a miner of ore. 
  • Grand Strategy. Players are able to interact with a dynamic overview of charted and uncharted regions of space and make decisions about their conquests.
  • Exploration. Go on an exciting space trip in exploration of the Star Atlas metaverse and potentially discover celestial and terrestrial assets. 
  • Space Flight Simulation. Manually pilot or captain your own spaceship and fly to dark corners of the vast cosmos. Interact with various equipment like flightsticks, virtual reality head-mounted display sets and sophisticated control panels.

We put an emphasis on "aims to provide" because the game hasn't been released yet and the team has only leaked a few gameplay teaser videos.

SIDUS HEROES

Now it’s time we look at some new players of the P2E gaming space that look set to blow up someday in the future. 

SIDUS HEROES is the first-ever WebGL, AAA-level, Play-to-Earn, NFT and MMORPG game created by a founding team of experts who have extensive knowledge and experience in the crypto sector. 

The game is set in a space metaverse at a time when technological advancements have reached the level of merging with all living beings. The game can boast multiple gaming scenarios that include battles, settlements, interstellar exploration and has plenty of scope for political, social and economic development.

SIDUS HEROES also has a ton-notch WebGL-based graphics engine that ensures unmatched HD rendering quality in compatible web browsers. Users don't need to download any applications onto their PCs or phones as they can get access to the project via its URL.

I’d like to emphasize certain pros about SIDUS HEROES, which offers players:

  • A comprehensive metaverse with a broad range of game modes that allow players to become whoever they want to be.
  • A well-developed and deep economic model with unique opportunities to invest in modules, entitling users to a lifetime of profits in the metaverse.
  • A first-class gaming experience thanks to WebGL and PlayCanvas technologies, which sets a new quality standard for browser games.
  • The ability to farm resources and craft, build and develop your own infrastructure.
  • An in-game political system that enables users to vote, get elected, represent their own race and more.

Alien Worlds

Alien Worlds is a free blockchain game where players compete against each other to earn Trilium (TLM). Users control the use of the TLM token on DAO planets. Alien Worlds is a DeFi Metaverse. The game runs on the WAX network, using Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and Ethereum. Each of these three blockchains provide Alien Worlds with different functionality.

The game’s setting includes 7 planets, each being a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). Tasks and options are many - you can mine TLMs, you can trade tokens or NFTs, pump up characters or manage a planet. There are more than 3 million players in the game and its provider is creating new planets - an approach that seems set to continue.

I personally like this project for its cross-chain feature and the founders’ strong drive to continue evolving the product. 

STARL Metaverse

STARL Metaverse is an interactive 3D universe that’s set in space, enabling players to explore various virtual worlds and communities. The project features a great variety of games that include racing on moons and extraterrestrial land as well as shooting battles inside abandoned space bases and ships. 

Aside from that, users can complete interesting missions within solar systems (e.g. capturing or defending a space station from enemies) and claim great rewards for it.

The wide spectrum of games in STARL Metaverse will be connected and accessible via the project’s Market in the foreseeable future, so do not miss it! 

Final Thoughts

Summing up, the Play-to-Earn industry is oversaturated with projects, making it hard to say which is the most worthwhile one. Hopefully, this article will help you decide which game to play or invest in next.
