One of the most famous game manufacturers in the world, the French company Ubisoft, has signed a cooperation agreement with a specific platform for the distribution of Ultra content. This startup is designed and launched on the EOS blockchain basis. From a publicly available press release, we can understand that Ubisoft will become one of the largest node holders and will begin to produce blocks in the test network under the name UOS.
The gaming industry is starting to switch using blockchain. Ubisoft has confirmed its interest in the development of this industry, as well as in providing significant assistance to the blockchain platform for the use of its capabilities in the future. The second party to the agreements did not stand aside from the comments. Utra Project Director General Nicolas Gilo stated the following:
“We are very pleased to cooperate with one of the leaders in the gaming industry. The desire to develop the blockchain industry confirms the general interest of Ubisoft in the development of the technological field and its future products. The company’s portfolio already has a number of well-known franchises, including Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, Just Dance and others. I think our cooperation will allow Ubisoft to create even better and more secure content.”
The head of the Ubisoft blockchain initiative department, Nicolas Poir, noted that his company is interested in developing this partnership in order to improve the system for protecting the interests of players and Ubisoft itself.
“Now we will help the blockchain reach higher power indicators, and in the future it will already be our tool for achieving various goals in the development and support of game projects” – said Poir.
According to experts, Ubisoft is preparing to use the Ultra network to support transactions on in-game values in various gaming universes. Also, the blockchain will be used to create unique virtual assets that will have unique properties and will receive protection from fakes.
Ubisoft plans to join testing in the coming weeks. If this stage is successful, the company will be among those major players who from the very beginning will support the project during the launch of the main network.
It is worth noting that this is not the first step of Ubisoft in the field of blockchain and cryptocurrencies. At the beginning of the summer of 2019, the company openly showed interest in using the Ethereum network, but apparently the assessment of potential risks and prospects did not bear fruit.
