With over $20 million invested in the gameplay alone, Yeeha Games aims to position Oath of Peak as one of Web3’s leading games
January 12, 2022 — Yeeha Games, Bybit’s Games platform, announced today the launch of its first MMORPG on the Polygon blockchain, Oath of Peak, with a trailer showing off the diverse gameplay. The game’s closed beta received an impressive number of favorable reviews, and over 300,000 pre-registered players are anticipating today’s launch.
Development for the game began in 2018 after the dev team’s previous MMORPG, A Chinese Ghost Story, netted more than 18 million downloads worldwide. Since then, Oath of Peak has become one of the most ambitious gaming projects in web3 today, with more than $20 million invested into developing the core gameplay alone.
“We wanted to create a fun experience that we would be proud to play ourselves, as passionate MMORPG players,” said Grant Zhang, the game lead for Oath of Peak. “We chose to implement some blockchain technology as it enabled the game to be more interactive, and feel more immersive.”
Players join the game as Spirit Benders journeying across the Omnispirit Realm, a world full of wonders and fantastical creatures like Spirit Beasts that roam the land. Gamers who want a little more skin in the game can get their hands on the powerful Genesis Primordial Spirit Beast (PSB) NFTs.
In total, 10,000 NFTs will be made available at launch, of which 5,000 are Genesis Kiufeng PSBs, and the other 5,000 are Genesis Huodou. Based on the type and gender, players can use these PSBs to breed even more PSBs, which can then be sold off or traded on the secondary market.
Urvit Goel, VP of Global Games & Platform Business Development at Polygon, said, “We’re immensely excited to see Oath of Peak go live on Polygon. The team’s passion and attention to detail is clearly reflected in the gameplay, making Oath of Peak a solid contender to become one of web3’s flagship games.”
Future events and updates for the game will be announced via the Oath of Peak Twitter account, where the team frequently hosts giveaways for early participants as well. Once the game is released, it will be available for download on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
