Tortola, British Virgin Islands, July 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Galactic Entertainment’s highly anticipated game, PlanetQuest, has launched the claiming process for its first wave of Planets. The detailed and distinctive planets powered by their very own Genesis Engine, are being sold selectively to community members who took part in the community-friendly Planet Sale.
With demand significantly surpassing availability, PlanetQuest implemented an innovative strategy for selling their planet NFTs. Traditional first come, first serve NFT sales have resulted in large gas battles, stalled transactions, frustration, website crashes, and front-running bots acquiring NFTs that are meant for community members.
To overcome these concerns, PlanetQuest partnered with Immutable X to conduct a community-friendly sale. This strategy gives applicants ample time to determine which planets they want to purchase, make their case as to how they will contribute to the ever-growing community, and submit their applications accordingly. Even during a market downturn, PQ received well over 10,000 applications and over $60 Million in commitments.
After the application process ended, all submissions were thoroughly rated, and now planets are being assigned to the most meritorious submissions through waves, with Immutable X offering gas-free purchasing. With just a limited supply of planets available and most of them in the hands of true fans, early figures are already showing secondary market prices 3-20X higher than the original price of a planet.
Although players can own entire planets, the game remains free-to-play for gamers to team up with friends and explore thousands of planets once early access opens in 2023. PlanetQuest’s token and in-game currency, $PQX, will go public before early access. Players should anticipate stunning artwork and surface-level visuals of the first planets later this year.
The Cinematic Multiverse and AAA Game is a pioneering video game backed by top-tier investors, Hollywood, and gaming talent. It became well-known for its superb aesthetics, renowned partners, and engaging plot, with over 215,000 members joining the PlanetQuest Discord to support the company’s mission to transform the ownership of digital assets in triple-A gaming.
The PlanetQuest team consists of talented individuals who have made a name for themselves in the gaming, entertainment and blockchain industries.
