An enormous congratulations to the team and @0xPolygonLabs for a gargantuan effort over the last year.
Get ready for full launch incredibly soon with the (now 260+) games building.
Things are going to go nuclear.
With over 200 games committed to building on Immutable, representing nearly 70% of the market share, 2024 is poised to witness the launch of numerous games and a surge in player adoption.
In contrast to general-purpose chains, Immutable zkEVM is tailored for gaming, prioritising scale, speed, and native user experiences.
With an extensive ecosystem of partners spanning game development, distribution, marketing, marketplaces, and analytics, Immutable zkEVM offers game studios the tools needed to thrive in one consolidated platform.
Immutable’s comprehensive blockchain gaming platform, now featuring a zkEVM rollup, ensures compatibility with existing products like Passport, Orderbook, and Checkout.
The chain also introduces gas-free functionality for gamers using Immutable Passport, streamlining the user experience and enabling seamless gameplay and trading without gas fees.
The Immutable zkEVM Mainnet is currently live in early access mode, with a Mainnet deployer allowlist ensuring smooth operations and user safety.
While select game studios and ecosystem partners have initial access, developers can deploy Immutable’s preset smart contract templates and access the Immutable zkEVM Testnet.
