The highlight of the July update is the unveiling of their newest map: ‘Neo-Yakuza’. Inspired and infused with the vibrant spirit of Tokyo’s iconic Kabukicho entertainment district, players will battle it out amongst stunning visuals and rich sounds.
Furthermore, Thirdverse has implemented an achievement system, offering players 20 separate achievements with dozens more to come in the following weeks. By continuously enjoying the game and accomplishing these milestones, players can earn badges that serve as recognition of their dedication and skill.
To foster a fair and supportive gaming environment, Thirdverse will also introduce next week a user behavior reporting system. This system aims to identify cheaters and maintain a good community, promoting fair competition and ensuring a positive experience for all players.
These exciting new features come on the heels of the game’s remarkable success to date. Since its initial launch into Early Access just under two months ago, X8 has achieved an impressive milestone of more than 50,000 players that have installed X8 to play 187,000 matches and 1.5 million rounds of intense 5v5 gameplay. The growing player base and active engagement within the game demonstrate X8’s increasing popularity and the strong appeal of its immersive VR multiplayer gameplay.
