UAE, Dubai: The Dubai-based metaverse project Everdome last week released their first beta in-world gaming experience, allowing their near 20,000 NFT holding community to jump into hyper-realistic Moon vehicles and compete against each other in a high octane Moon racing experience.

Over a 24 hour period, all Everdome Genesis Collection NFT holders as well as Land NFT holders were granted access to this exclusive Moon Exploration game as the metaverse project demonstrated their ability to create immersive digital adventures with a true gaming and play-to-earn element.

Using Everdome’s in-world chat, the entrants engaged in pre-race banter before blasting off of the Moon to get involved in two separate Moon exploration contests.

Members of the Everdome community were then able to enjoy their exclusive access to these in-world game experiences as the metaverse project stops off on the Moon on their way to a metaverse Mars landing later in the year.

Evernauts, as termed by Everdome, could jump into their ‘’Endurance’’ Moon Skimmers, and race to collect checkpoints against the fellow community members in a real play-to-earn metaverse experience.

This Moon Skimmer race was not the only experience on display, as community members were also able to try a Moonwalk adventure contest for some further true immersive play-to-earn action inside an hyper-realistic digital environment.

Capturing checkpoints in the shortest amount of time, entrants competed against each other for a prize pool in the thousands of dollars in USDT, across these two separate Lunar exploration themed game experiences.

Although this experience had an arcade game style theme, it remains inline with Everdome’s commitment to hyper-realistic principles, as it was themed and located at a real Moon location, in the vicinity of the Shackleton crater.

‘’This release of an Everdome in-world game experience represented the first time all of our access NFT & Landholding community entered Everdome at the same time. The test served primarily as a network scaling exercise, but also gave our community a first taste of our  immersive gameplay direction."

Everdome COO Jeremy Lopez

‘’The results of this first beta test were really encouraging, with almost 9000 games played over a 24 hour period and an average in-experience duration of 75 minutes per player. It really shows how Everdome is capable of creating ‘sticky’ experiences to engage the most modern of digital audiences.’’

The immersion of their current community demonstrates how Everdome uses the power of the metaverse and Web3 to create experiences significantly more immersive and memorable, showing the potential of their metaverse multiplayer events to allow brands of all kinds to truly engage a new generation of digital audience.

With a Mars landing experience scheduled for Q2 2023, along with ongoing partnerships with OKX and Alfa Romeo F1® Team, Everdome’s metaverse project is gathering both momentum and global visibility.
