Epic’s Chief Executive Officer has worse news for you if you’d hoped to Fortnite NFTs

Epic's Chief Executive Officer has worse news for you if you'd hoped to Fortnite NFTs techydeed.com

In the morning, Tim Sweeney tweeted that Epic doesn’t interest NFTs in response to an NFT sales pitch. Sweeney cites the area’s problems with scams as the reason behind his hesitation, which led to some debate within the comment section (as the abrasive statements about crypto are known to create). Sweeney has recently clarified his position regarding NFTs slightly, stating that to the author, holding an NFT is as essential as liking images to a post on Twitter and asking the validity of NFT ownership is not fungible.

Although Sweeney’s stated the position, that doesn’t prevent him from being the subject of the attention of a flurry of NFT pitches. You can observe yourself by looking up “@TimSweeneyEpic nft” on Twitter. It’s not hard to understand why people are trying, but it’s not a good idea. Fortnite was a huge success and has earned billions by selling virtual objects. There’s been a significant amount of debate about using NFTs to play video games (not the fact that Epic or Sweeney was big fry before when Fortnite began to take off).

However, the NFT market isn’t completely free of fake artwork and unsavory activities that have been going on at some of the giant corporations (along with many other frauds which have risen to prominence since NFTs gained a reputation this year). However, it’s unlikely to be the reason why we do not see VNFTs become the V-Bucks of the future. An alternative is that Epic doesn’t need to make use of blockchain technology to make profits as of yet, and NFTs aren’t yet ready to tackle issues like the one it has with Apple regarding what’s permitted on the app store. This isn’t like scams are hindering other companies from entering the market. For example, the Top Shots, licensed by the NBA Top Shots, has operated without any incidents that have raised eyebrows.

Interestingly, Sweeney also retweeted a portion of a thread with a semi-viral status on “Web 3,” or a well-known concept within the cryptocurrency community of rethinking how the web works by focusing on tokens and blockchains. The idea of Web 3 is a return to the decentralization and decentralization of Web 1, as opposed to “Web 2.0,” where the majority of users are on the platforms of huge companies such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google. Of course, cryptocurrency (especially Ethereum) plays a significant role in this vision. The portion of the tweet Sweeney shared on Twitter reminisces of an earlier version of the internet with the possibility of open protocol and community-based government, but how that is related to Fortnite’s future Fortnite is not clear Perhaps it was simply a nostalgic look at an internet that seems to have gone.

The launch will not allow you to edit multiplayer maps or play Halo Infinite in co-op

The launch will not allow you to edit multiplayer maps or play Halo Infinite in co-op techydeed.com

These will be added to the game over time.

Halo Infinite will be released this holiday season. However, at launch, you won’t have the ability to play campaign mode with your friends or edit multiplayer levels using Forge mode. Developer 343 Industries announced Friday.

“When we looked at these experiences — campaign coop and Forge – we made the determination [that] that they’re just simply not ready,” Joseph Staten (head of creative on Halo Infinite) said in a video. “So campaign co-op will be kept in the oven for a bit longer. We’ll release them next year as part of our season roadmap when they’re complete.

CAMPAIGN CO-OP IS TARGETED FOR SEASON TWO, WHILE FORGE IS SET FOR SEASON THREE

Staten stated that 343 Industries plans to ship campaign co-op and Forge in the second season. Staten stated that 343 Industries aims to ship a new season approximately every three months. This means that campaign co-op will likely arrive around three months after launch, while Forge will arrive six months later.

Halo’s campaign cooperative and Forge mode are two hallmarks of the series, so fans may be disappointed to learn that they won’t be available at launch. However, 343 remains committed to launching the campaign this holiday season and season one multiplayer.

Staten said, “We’ll soon be discussing our actual release date.” Xbox is hosting an event in just a few days on August 24th, so perhaps Microsoft and 343 Industries will reveal the date there.

HALO INFINITE HAS HAD A BIT OF ROCKY HISTORY

The latest delays in campaign co-op, Forge and Forge are all part of Halo Infinite’s recent history. The original release date for the game was 2020. However, it was delayed to 2021 after a campaign that revealed the origins of the Craig meme. Staten, who was involved in the initial three Halo games, was brought on board soon after.

Despite its slow development, however, the recent multiplayer technical preview was very positive. This could suggest that the game will live to fans’ expectations when it finally releases this holiday season. You’ll need to wait for the game to be released to play it with your friends or modify it in Forge mode.
