In today’s video gaming news, we introduce an upcoming, promising free-to-play sci-fi MMO Real Time Strategy blockchain game, Pulsar. This upcoming "play to own NFT game" will entertain hundreds and thousands of players around the world, where players will mine, build, and conquer. It is arguably the first Web3 RTS game with a lot to offer in terms of entertainment, graphics, gameplay, and earning opportunities. So, gamers, rally around and get ready to welcome the Starcraft of Web3 blockchain gaming, Pulsar.
The game offers spectacular gameplay with futuristic art concepts. The game's biomes each have their own distinct characteristics and breathtaking immersive environments. Moreover, the game gives off AAA vibes and is powered by the Unreal Engine and Avalanche Subnet. It offers some of the crispiest, most crystal clear, vibrant, and cleanest graphics that a blockchain game has yet to offer. The only other blockchain game next to Pulsar that promises supergraphics in the sci-fi genre is Ascenders.
With billions of stars and galaxies in deep space, we are surely not alone. There must be civilizations or empires out there that are more advanced in technology, intelligence, and resources. It all began when Earth satellites in deep space received signals — a sound wave with a frequency that had never been heard before. The frequency was named Beacon 0, and the source was Pulsar.
In search of the origin, the believers went from planet to planet, established colonies, and extracted resources to continue penetrating into deeper space. Now, the believers have reached the last planet just before the Pulsar System, and in between are millions of light years of distance. So, the explorers decided to populate W12R as it is the last planetary outpost before the start of the Pulsar System. This makes the W12R an important outpost, and the battle to gain control over it has just started.
Pulsar is Free-to-Play
The team behind Pulsar is considerate towards players as well as a player-driven economy. The developers have made this game free to play, requiring no initial investment to begin playing.

Pulsar welcomes Web2 and Web3 gamers alike.

Play-to-Own Mechanism in Pulsar
Pulsar offers players complete ownership of every in-game item they possess. Players will own everything from units to buildings, land and crafts, NFTs, and resources.
NFTs are upgradeable and will help players in combat battles and production capabilities. This will also increase the value of the NFTs in the marketplace.
Land in Pulsar
Land mining is also available, which will monetize the player’s assets. The land will also let players mine NFTs and even lend their land to other players. So, what about land?
There are four types of lands, or biomes, in the game, and each biome has unique attributes attached to it. Each land has a minimum or maximum of $PLSR in it, depending on the size of the land. Moreover, a land’s size also determines the number of motherships and units that it can host. The land also has resources in it ranging from common to uncommon to rare. These resources will be at the disposal of all players; however, the land owner will charge a tax from players that extract resources.
The Building Refinery
The NFTs from the land will need to head to the refinery building, where Genesis Pulsar Refinery will convert raw Pulsar to $PLSR tokens. Resource Refinery, on the other hand, will convert raw resources into on-chain resource tokens.
$PLSR is the primary in-game currency that the players can also mine. The process involves getting raw Pulsars from the land and getting them refined into $PLSR.
$GAS is another on-chain token that will help players craft NFTs and also be used in trade.
Our Take On Pulsar
The game holds a lot of potential and shows promise, especially on the fun and graphics sides, which are much more appealing. The in-game economy is the real challenge that every Web3 game faces, especially during the crypto winter. However, Pulsar might just be the game that eventually comes up with an innovation where the in-game economy thrives into a robust ecosystem.
