GameFi: First-Person Shooters New Gaming Direction 

MetaStrike has officially released a gameplay teaser video for users to see what lies in wait. With the game readying for its upcoming launch on Binance Smart Chain (BSC), we look at why this direction in gaming may be necessary for GameFi.

The gameplay and first-person shooter aspect represents a movement away from what has become the GameFi norm: card-battling PvP format, where users do battle and await the final result. 

First-person shooters will offer users the chance to effectively compete for crypto rewards with live play-by-play movement and action, offering a sense of control and excitement usually harder to come by in the PvP card-battle format. 


GameFi Options Growing

Alongside MetaStrike, Solana-based Mini Royale will also be offering users the chance to shoot their way into crypto profit. Mini Royale has impressive backers and already has a beta version of the game running on its webpage.

Users can jump on and experience the game itself prior to the official release. In lieu of its official release, users are able to mint their heroes on Magic Eden on December 6th and on Mini Royale’s page on December 9th.

Faraway, the team responsible for the construction of Mini Royale, will be joining BSC News Editor-in-Chief Greg @GoonTrades for a live stream on December 3rd, tune in on DeFi Direct

Whether first-person shooters will indeed take off is another matter, but users will at the very least appreciate the variety of gaming that these two options will offer. While strategy games and PvP will always have their role in GameFi, this latest dimension could bring in more traditional gamers and see a general GameFi market rise, something we would all appreciate!
