 the first-ever mobile shooting game in the metaverse.

The Web3 industry’s first mobile shooting game, Matr1x, has secured $10 million and is set to finish a second round of funding. Past investors have included Hana Financial Investments, a division of Hana Financial Group and a significant financial holding company in South Korea; HashKey Capital, a reputable firm known for its early investments in Ether (ETH); Amber Group, one of the most significant market makers in the Web3 sector; and SevenX, a prestigious Web3 fund that makes significant investments in the GameFi sector.

The South Korean juggernaut’s entry into the Web3 market is marked by its investment in Matr1x. A market analyst who declined to be identified said, “It is unusual to see this kind of traditional financial giant in this sector, but Hana’s smart move may be more linked to its metaverse strategy, and I expect more to follow suit. Metaverse must be open-sourced and decentralized, while GameFi may pave the way to the ultimate metaverse.

According to its official website, Matr1x will create three mobile games with a shared worldview: Matr1x Fire, Matr1x War, and Matr1x Evolution. Matr1x Fire is a competitive first-person shooter (FPS) game that will cover a series of stories about Cyber Earth, Mars Immigration, and Interstellar Expedition. According to the same website, Matr1x Fire started accepting pre-registrations on September 15, 2022, and in less than 96 hours had close to 28,000 users.

Looking at Microsoft’s $68.7 billion proposal for Activision Blizzard and the speculated possible bid for Ubisoft, it appears they are attempting to make their own storylines stand out as a fresh IP rather than merely exporting titles. Instead than merely playing games, people are betting on IPs, according to the industry expert.

According to J. Clement, a research lead with a focus on internet and gaming at Statistica, shooter games were the most popular game genres worldwide in 2021. With the exception of internet users aged 55 to 64, shooter games were the most popular gaming genre across nearly all age groups.

Although there are currently many shooter-themed games available on the Web3 market, competitive FPS is unquestionably the genre’s pinnacle. According to reports, the market leader CS:GO generated more than $400 million in revenue in 2018 and had between 31 and 37 million active players per month in 2021.

Polygon, a layer-2 scaling solution or sidechain developed to offer quicker, more affordable transactions, powers Matr1x games. Alongside the primary Ethereum blockchain, Polygon operates as a secondary blockchain. “As far as I’m aware, Matr1x offers the finest gaming goods ever in the Web3 market and may provide insight into how Web3 can surpass Web2.

Personally, I’m hoping they can ultimately guide us through the uncharted waters while having the support of the whole Web3 industry. Let’s see what happens,” said the market analyst.
