SIDUS HEROES is building a foundational infrastructure for the metaverse at the perfect time. The gaming industry is the fastest-growing sector in entertainment today and is predicted to have a market value surpassing $314 billion by 2026.
All this growth is enabled by advancements in virtual reality technology, cloud gaming, and graphical processing units that together make it possible for users to have an immersive gaming experience.
For this reason, the technology at the forefront of the metaverse is driving the rapid growth of the gaming industry. From virtual reality technology to cloud computing and even decentralized ledger technologies, the success of the metaverse is seen through the lens of gaming applications as the industry advances the infrastructure needed to build the metaverse.
While various non-gaming platforms such as virtual concerts, digital art, and collectibles also highlight the social and interactive features of the metaverse, gaming platforms offer the closest definition of what a fully-fledged metaverse would look like.
After all, most gaming platforms already espouse some of the metaverse’s primitive features.
The fierce pace with which the gaming industry is developing and advancing towards the metaverse means that the current computer equipment and most of the underlying technology are barely able to keep up.
Most supporting hardware technologies and infrastructure is becoming outdated.
Cloud computing technologies and virtual reality devices are a significant part of today’s gaming industry. These tools make it possible to create immersive worlds that allow multiple players to log on simultaneously and experience a game’s graphic interface.
For most gamers, the frustration caused by hardware overheating, especially when playing in multiplayer mode, is common, especially with gaming platforms that are built on centralized servers.
As more gaming applications advance their graphical user interfaces and embrace the metaverse concept, even the most advanced GPUs will eventually struggle to deliver optimum results.
For these games, decentralized cloud computing is a must-have as it situates the decentralized network of servers as close to the end-user as possible. Compared to decentralized cloud computing games, games running centralized network architecture encounter critical UX challenges, such as frame drops and glitches during gameplay.
In a fully scaled metaverse, such challenges will only be compounded as applications in the metaverse demand even greater computational and storage capabilities.
As things stand at the moment, many games are only launching on certain hardware, since old hardware continues to become outdated. For example, the price of the latest PlayStation can go as high as $1000, plus extra costs for the video cards needed for the full gaming experience.
Even though decentralized gaming alternatives exist, GameFi applications still possess poor quality graphics that repel players from centralized gaming platforms because they are accustomed to high-quality graphics and a premium user experience.
For this reason, SIDUS HEROES is developing the world’s first-ever platform to combine both traditional gaming concepts with decentralized networks, thus providing gamers a metaverse-ready infrastructure.
SIDUS HEROES is built with a sophisticated infrastructure that not only enables access from anywhere on the globe, it also guarantees high scalability and performance.
With the implementation of WebGL in concert with SIDUS HEROES’ blockchain for NFTs, SIDUS’ developers will have an easy time creating immersive 3D games that will be accessible to anyone, from anywhere in the world, using a simple browser.
Players and platform users will no longer need sophisticated machines or complicated plugins to access metaverse-ready platforms. Simply by using the user’s in-built graphics processing unit, WebGL makes it possible for any device to render complex visual elements.
In addition, the distributed blockchain network that SIDUS HEROES is built on will store players’ in-game assets in the form of non-fungible tokens throughout the SIDUS HEROES ecosystem.
As gaming platforms advance closer to the metaverse concept, other non-gaming platforms will follow suit. The metaverse is the next logical step in the evolution of the internet.
However, existing infrastructure currently lags in terms of its capacity to support a completely immersive digital experience.
SIDUS HEROES is building the infrastructure required to support the development of an easily accessible, immersive, decentralized and entertaining virtual world that is the precursor to the gaming metaverse.
With SIDUS HEROES’ blockchain network, developers will be able to create in-game assets in the form of NFTs and the WebGL implemented in the SIDUS HEROES ecosystem will help to enhance users’ experience with lifelike 3D graphics.
