Blockchain-Enabled 'Neon District' RPG Will Launch on Matic Network

Published on by Cointele | Published on

Blockade Games' much-delayed blockchain RPG Neon District has announced a move to Matic Network, following the presumed collapse of the initial choice, Loom.

Listen to article The much-delayed blockchain role-playing game Neon District will be launching on Ethereum layer-two scaling solution Matic, according to a recent announcement.

Neon District developer, Blockade Games will also move several of its community games onto the network.

Neon District has been coming "Soon" since October 2019, when its imminent launch was delayed by six months.

Set in a dystopian future, the game centres around rebels fighting an authoritarian government.

These NFTs will be freely tradable in an online marketplace powered by the Matic network.

Some eager gamers even bought in-app units and inventory items at a loadout last October, just before the game was delayed.

Neon District was previously slated for release on the Loom network, before the Loom project announced it had "Pivoted from blockchain games to enterprise" and went AWOL. Matic Network is a similarly layer-two scaling solution for the Ethereum blockchain.

The move to the Matic network will not speed up the arrival of the game itself.

While Neon District is planning to "Release multiple experiences in Q3 and Q4 2020," the official Season One will not be available until 2021.
