Farcana, solving industry pains
Farcana is a skill-based next-gen shooter game with groundbreaking mechanics, immersive gameplay, and a rich lore, that is being developed by Dubai’s Farcana gaming studio. The game features a 4×4 format and fully integrated esports system with seamless payouts.
Embracing the advanced economy of Web3, Farcana offers tokenized assets that offer true ownership. Tournament winners get rewards from a Bitcoin prize pool, funded by the company’s profits, including revenue from season passes and skin purchases.
The title focuses on solving the industry’s pains, such as the lack of scalability, by ensuring a diverse gameplay experience rather than a tank-centric system, or extensive criticism of Play-to-Earn by the Web2 community, by offering a sustainable product and seamless onboarding of Web2 players.
As one of the leading Web3 games in the DEF 2023’s Future’s Zone, dedicated to the titles disrupting gaming, Farcana will get exposed to the expected audience of over 25,000 participants.
First playtest: the power of community
During the playtest, from June 22 to 25, the top 7% of players will have a shot at a share of Bitcoin prize pool, with a value of nearly $30,000. All participants will receive a free NFT skin that they can use in the game or sell on Farcana’s marketplace once the game is launched.
The event has multiple goals: testing the game mechanics, gathering feedback for future enhancements, and building a community of committed long-term contributors. In a significant show of support, Alienware and Dell have confirmed their sponsorship of Farcana’s playtest, lending their expertise as recognized leaders in gaming technology. To date, nearly 10,000 gamers have signed up for the event.
Farcana has announced a Game Expo live stream, where industry influencers will be streaming Farcana’s playtest live.
