Yuga Labs Gave The Community An Update On The Otherside And Showed New Gameplay Footage
Yuga Labs tweeted an update on the Otherside and showed the NFT community a sneak peek of the highly anticipated metaverse.
“Fragments of an Obelisk have washed ashore in the Biogenic Swamp, Yuga Labs tweeted from its Othersidemeta account. “Voyagers, your Otherdeed is your key to helping build the Otherside metaverse. As we reassemble the Obelisk together, the Otherside comes to life.”
Along with this cryptic tweet, Yuga also tweeted a new Otherside link that goes into more detail about the world and how users’ choices will impact their future.
While much of the Otherside website is intentionally cryptic, it is clear that Otherdeed holders will be able to “decouple” artifacts and Kodas from their land. “A cosmic earthquake shakes up our universe, bringing with it a vision into the Kodas’ past and an opportunity for Voyagers to decouple their Otherdeeds’ constituent parts,” the website states. “Where do the Kodas and their artifacts go from here? Voyagers decide.”
As you read on, Yuga Labs says that there will be a marketplace on the Otherside. “Voyagers, come together to buy, sell, barter, and trade for what you need. Or craft new items from raw materials. Let us build, create, and innovate with each other.”
Following this post, Yuga Labs followed it up with gameplay footage from the Otherside.
“And here’s a sneak peak of the First Trip, the tech demo from @Improbableio, Othersidemeta tweeted along with a 36 second video clip. “Can’t wait to share the experience with you.”
The video begins with Curtis the ape waving to the viewer and then shows the primate running around the Otherisde.
At the halfway point of the video, Curtis jumps into some sort of vortex and is transported into a swamp by the Bored Ape Yacht Club.
Their has been a lot of speculation around the BAYC regarding how far along the Otherside is. As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Impropbable, the gaming studio working with Yuga Labs to build the Otherside, said that the game was already in early development.
“Otherside is going to blow people’s minds while upending decades-long ideas of what gaming is and what’s possible with open platforms,” said Herman Narula, CEO at Improbable in a press release
. “In just our early development, we’ve successfully tested over 15,000 people interacting in the same virtual space at the same time using M2 technology. Partnering with Yuga we think we are helping lay the foundation for something that will open the door to new experiences across art, entertainment, gaming, and more in a big way.”
The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to cover this Otherside update. Stay tuned for more coverage.
