LOS ANGELES and STOCKHOLM, March 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- From recently announced publisher Readyverse Studios in partnership with developer Walker Labs, comes OPEN, the first AAA quality metaverse experience interoperable with AAA IP that leverages web3 technology.

The third-person battle royale experience OPEN will be the hero experience in The Readyverse. The Readyverse is a next-gen immersive and interoperable platform for discovering metaverse games and experiences. A first glimpse of OPEN was debuted in a trailer today by Readyverse Studios Co-Founders at SXSW; watch here.

Enter OPEN's immersive multiverse filled with nostalgia-infused biomes featuring characters and cultural legends across iconic franchises. Challengers embark on game-show styled, multi-round collaborative and competitive game modes, but only one hero can emerge victorious. Hone and showcase a vast array of gaming disciplines, where tactical positioning, sly movement, strategic shooting, and driving skills take center stage, as you join forces with worthy allies, plan together for strategic advantages, and engage in intense gameplay sessions.

OPEN derives its name from the principles that The Readyverse will champion including asset interoperability, digital ownership, decentralization and security. Among additional globally recognized IP, such as Reebok and DeLorean featured in the teaser, OPEN will feature a Ready Player One biome where fans can engage in competitive experiences born from the novel and film itself; including branded environments and skins.

"We are incredibly proud to announce OPEN as our flagship experience in The Readyverse. Joining forces with Walker Labs to create a super-team of seasoned game developers from Epic Games, DICE, Microsoft, PlayStation, Mojang, Remedy, Ubisoft, Lucasfilm, Electronic Arts and more has allowed us to tackle the ambitious genre-defining challenge of building a AAA, MMO open metaverse experience worthy of iconic IP in a way that has never been done before," said Readyverse Studios Co-Founders Aaron McDonald, Shara Senderoff, Ernest Cline and Dan Farah.

"With OPEN, our team of experienced game developers is passionately committed to bringing fan-favorite and original IP to life at highest fidelity," said Wajhi Jafri, Executive Producer at Walker Labs. "As avid fans ourselves of the IP entering OPEN, especially Ready Player One which came to define the open metaverse for mainstream consumers, we understand the responsibility we have to satisfy gamers and enthusiasts, who have been dreaming of engaging in this type of world for a long time. In close collaboration with Ernest Cline, we're busy crafting a memorable lore where players can immerse themselves for years to come."
