The first wave gave five devoted community members the chance to be one of the first users to access the platform. They provided important feedback that we have implemented over the last few months.
Here’s where we’re at. Kicking off Wave 2 on the 25th of November, we’ll give dozens more lucky community members the chance to try out Ultra Games. As we’ve moved across from Testnet in Wave 1 to Mainnet, we’ll be testing the purchasing flow and users will provide us with additional feedback that we will consider moving forward.
Developers have been able to self-publish their content using our Game Dev Centre and users in this wave will see a select few games that have been added to the platform, be able to buy them with fiat or UOS, and play them on their local machines.
The limited selection of games at the beginning of this wave ensures closed beta users can thoroughly test our features and we’ll be onboarding more publishers and games during Wave 2.
This is the third and final wave of our closed beta. We’ll be giving access to many more users after the launch of the NFT Marketplace and just before the public release of Ultra Games to ensure we’re scaling effectively and test out more features and integrations. These users will be randomly selected, as well as through giveaways on our social channels. Make sure to download the platform and follow us on Twitter for a chance to gain exclusive access to the closed beta during this wave!
Each application we add to the Ultra platform is equally as important as the others. We’re providing an all encompassing ecosystem that bridges the gap between gaming and blockchain in a way that benefits players and developers equally. However, at the centre of our platform is Ultra Games, our games storefront.
This is an important stage for us at Ultra as we’ll be announcing our key publishing partners and the games that will be available on the platform. To stay up to date on all things gaming, follow us on our gaming Twitter!
Game developers have been using our Game Dev Centre to publish their content onto the platform and we’ve onboarded various publishers to provide choice to closed beta users who are exploring Ultra Games.
In the meantime, the NFT marketplace is next in line to be publicly released. We’ve been testing it internally and we’ll soon be welcoming our closed beta testers to try it out for themselves. These select lucky users will gain exclusive access to the NFT Marketplace in all its digital asset glory!
There won’t be a closed beta wave structure for the NFT Marketplace like there is for Ultra Games. Instead, we’ll recruit our Wave 1 closed beta users to test out the platform for a short period of time, implement their feedback where applicable, and release it shortly after as part of our fully public offering.
