Phantom Galaxies isn’t the typical blockchain game, where it’s on a mobile or PC platform and uses simple gameplay. The graphics are on par with some of the top console video games, and players will generally own everything that they use in the game in the form of an NFT. The game will be released on all console platforms, as well as on PC, which will make it one of the first blockchain games to do so.

What is Phantom Galaxies?

Phantom Galaxies is an RPG (role-playing game) where players are transforming robots, known as "Mechs," that battle and defend certain territories across the universe. Players have the opportunity to own everything in the game as an NFT, including the Mechs, weapons, avatars, equipment, snips, and more. The game is set to be released in the summer of 2022.
