Wilderness P2E

In the GameFi industry, we often observe that standalone game projects raise funds to develop the games first and build their own metaverses further down the road. 

But it should also be possible for a promising game project to be born directly in the metaverse itself to leverage the underlying infrastructure. The leading metaverse Decentraland enables precisely this through its “Play-to-Earn Incubator” program. The incubator will only support six games for the time being. A successful game that the program has already accepted is the Wilderness P2E game.

The P2E game Wilderness is located in Decentraland at the coordinates [45,-106]. It’s a fantasy combat game where players fight against non-player characters (NPCs) and other players.

Two IIT Kanpur graduates, mechanical engineer Ryan Pal and bioengineer Neha Singh, co-founded the project. The team developed partnerships with Twitter and Twitch influencers, including JTV and Lenacubed

The team launched the first version of Wilderness on December 21, 2021, 3 weeks after the Decentraland community voted and supported the idea of the Wilderness game. Upon approval from the metaverse’s DAO, the team had received a 3000$ grant for the game development. On March 8, 2021, the Decentraland Foundation approved the game for the incubator. 

Since the game’s launch, the Decentraland community members have been playing the game. There’re already more than 25K active players. 

Wilderness P2E Events in Decentraland

The Wilderness team holds regular events that allow gamers to enjoy play-to-earn rewards. These include in-game token Wilderness and wearable NFTs. There’re also daily quests you can complete to earn rewards. 

You, too, can benefit from these opportunities by visiting the game’s venue in Decentraland and partaking in the upcoming events. 

If you haven’t registered Decentraland before, you can explore Wilderness as a guest to have a glimpse of the game environment. However, you should visit the metaverse by connecting a Metamask wallet to integrate with it entirely. 

When you enter the game, the avatar customization screen welcomes you. After making modifications, you can go inside.

Walk around a bit, and you’ll encounter announcements of the upcoming events on the walls. For example, we learn that every fortnight Saturday, there’s an event taking place, which is called “Wilderness Alchemy Saturdays .” These events feature NPC monster battles in which you can earn 30% extra coins for every NPC monster you kill.

It’s actually possible to view all upcoming events by clicking on the events button found in the upper right corner. Similarly, if you click on Quests, you’ll be able to view the current daily tasks you should complete.

At the time of writing, for instance, apart from the Alchemy Sunday opportunity mentioned above, there’ll be “Blood Hour” and “Double XP Sunday” events. A “Blood Hour” event holds one-hour long and ranked player-versus-player battles, while the Double XP Sunday events are for the gamers who want to level up 2x faster.

Wilderness Wearable NFTs

You can also win wearable NFTs besides in-game tokens by participating in the Wilderness P2E game. Wilderness wearables are compatible across Decentraland, which means you can wear them on other occasions as well. Note also that you can trade these NFTs in secondary marketplaces like OpenSea. 

Decentraland runs on Polygon, an Ethereum Layer 2 solution, and so are the NFTs created there. That’s why all Wilderness Wearable NFTs are on the Polygon blockchain as well. 

The project has released Gen 2 wearables recently. They include robes and crowns. Each category has a max supply of 10,000 assets. 

Future Milestones

The team is on a mission to launch the game’s native token on blockchain on May 1, 2022. We know that the currency is called WLD (Wilderness), and it’ll be possible to swap it for MANA, DAI, and MATIC on a DEX in the near future. 

The team also announced that the project’s whitepaper would be ready on April 25, 2022. Then, we’ll be able to learn more about the tokenomics of WLD. 

Lastly, we’d like to note that the Wilderness P2E game will have its native NFT marketplace. The launch should take place on May 15, 2022.
