That’s what Apex Game Studios wants to achieve with Warrior, combining fun gameplay and the high-quality production of AAA titles with a blockchain-based economic system.
However, there are still not many details about the studio’s debut game. Warrior is an MMORPG, which is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2023. Players will be able to summon unique servants, trade in-game assets in the form of NFTs. More information about Warrior’s tokenomics can be found on its official website.
Tomonobu Itagaki has over 30 years of experience in game development. He is best known as the creator of Dead or Alive, a long-running series of fighting games. Itagaki also directed the Ninja Gaiden reboot.
