Introducing DOS Labs’ Avalanche Subnet
DOS Labs has launched its Avalanche Subnet, a rich ecosystem for game developers and players, offering an exchange, asset management tools, and other features.
The subnet aims to reduce the barriers to creating Web3 games and has already partnered with the Vietnam Game Developer Association to build the next generation of games on the subnet.
The move promises a seamless gaming experience for prospective users.
Among the first games to launch will be MetaDOS, a Battle Royale game featuring up to 200 players per match. The game introduces the “Time-as-currency” concept, where players have a certain amount of Time and must fight and loot more to stay alive and earn rewards.
Anh Le, co-founder of DOS Labs, was quoted on Avalanche’s blog as believing the subnet provides the best experience for onboarding Web2 players to Web3 gaming:
“Providing the best experience for onboarding Web2 players to Web3 gaming is our first mission. Currently, it takes over 20 steps for a player to be able to play an NFT game, and we aim to reduce them into 3 steps. We strongly believe in the long-term potential of the Avalanche network and DOS Subnet, where all game developers and players can benefit by utilizing our ecosystem. MetaDOS and Heroes & Empires will be the first movers on DOS Subnet.”
The subnet represents an opportunity for the Vietnam Game Developer Association to build an entire gaming platform with new revenue streams and partnership opportunities, according to Ed Chang, head of gaming at Ava Labs. This announcement is for informational purposes only and does not represent an endorsement or investment advice.
