Quartz app from Ubisoft

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot recently told investors that the company wants to be “one of the key players” in blockchain gaming, and today Ubisoft announced Quartz. This is an application that can simplify the communication between NFT in games and your crypto wallet. From December 9, 12, and 15, Ghost Recon Breakpoint for PC would make the first round.

A trailer for Quartz was also announced, which details the Digits (also called NFTs). Digits are limited edition in-game cosmetic items with unique serial numbers. They can be sold from player to player on a third-party marketplace like Rarible or Object, and these items also have an “ownership history” of everyone who bought them before.

Depending on who you ask, the program as a whole isn’t that far removed from something like the Steam Market (minus all the important NFT-related considerations). The numbers are stored on the Tezos Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain, which is a comparatively less energy-intensive solution than the Proof-of-Work Protocol used for other blockchains such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.

At the moment, Ubisoft Quartz is technically beta and therefore relatively limited in scope. The numbers exist in third-party crypto wallets of the owners, and they are playable in the PC version of Ghost Recon Breakpoint Ubisoft Connect – the only game supported so far after they have been synced to the player’s inventory. The plan is for “purely cosmetic items” and not for equipment that can affect gameplay, be it PvE or PvP.
