Microsoft-Backed StarHeroes Enlists Immutable X to Power Web3 Game

Immutable X, an NFT minting and trading platform and the “first” Layer 2 rapid-scaling solution on Ethereum, is partnering with StarHeroes to bring the skill-based space shooter game into the Immutable ecosystem and “to further accelerate the adoption of web3 games.”

Since starting development in 2020, StarHeroes has “worked to deliver a game that surpasses the current standard of blockchain gaming and brings together players of all backgrounds.”

StarHeroes strives “to give its community excitement and endless replayability through fast-action spaceship combat, engaging in-game scenarios and many other opportunities for players to progress their skills and compete against each other.”

In order to bring this experience to all gamers, StarHeroes will “be free-to-play with the option to monetize playtime through purchasable digital collectibles.”

More and more web3 games are “moving to Immutable X due to its greater stability, higher transactions per second, carbon neutrality and zero-gas fees.”

In the light of recent high-profile hacks on other blockchains, these titles also “gain the benefit of the higher security on Ethereum.” In addition, the Immutable X platform “offers their users seamless onboarding into web3 gaming, with true ownership of their digital goods.”

Maverick Milkowski, CEO of StarHeroes, said:

“Aligned with Immutable’s vision of accelerating the adoption of web3 games, we are excited and ready to take advantage of the innovative gaming and NFT solutions that it delivers. Thanks to this powerhouse partnership, we look forward to geting more players familiar with StarHeroes and unlock new possibilities they haven’t experienced elsewhere!”

StarHeroes also “announced it is the first blockchain game to receive a grant from Microsoft.”

This grant “gives the StarHeroes team the ability to work alongside developers from reputable studios such as Ubisoft and Microsoft Studios, furthering its mission of creating a game that excites players of all backgrounds and brings them together.”

To deliver on this innovative gaming experience, the StarHeroes team “brings together quality experience from both blockchain and gaming.”

Its team “features game developers who were previously involved in The Witcher Series and Cyberpunk 2077, as well as expert blockchain developers, who previously worked on protocols such as LayerZero, StarTerra and the Terra Station Wallet.”

Robbie Ferguson, Co-Founder of Immutable, said:

“We are excited to partner with StarHeroes to deliver our unsurpassed Layer2 technology and deliver its players an incredible web3 gaming experience. Being acknowledged by a company of Microsoft’s status is quite a recognition and we’re excited to help StarHeroes realize its potential as one of the next big sensations in web3 gaming.”

Immutable claims it is “the fastest Australian company to reach unicorn status — earlier this year, Immutable announced a $200 million series C fundraising round led by Temasek, and included Tencent and Animoca Brands.”

The company is “valued at $2.5 billion and plans to use the funds to help drive its global expansion.”
