Open - Ready Player One Game

A Ready Player One Battle Royale is on the Way, Titled Open

Readyverse Studios has unveiled their first game at SXSW Austin titled Open, a AAA metaverse experience that leverages web3 technology.

This new title is bringing the Ready Play One franchise to the metaverse and even involves Ernest Cline, the creator of Ready Player One, and Dan Farah, the Ready Player One film producer.

What is Open?

Open is a third-person battle royale game that will be the first experience in what is called The Readyverse. The game will allow players to explore a world with a Ready Player One biome and partake in competitive experiences born from both the book and film. Open is based around NFTs, so it will feature recognizable IPs, with Reebok and DeLorean appearing in the teaser trailer.

Similar to Ready Player One, players will compete in game-show-styled, multi-round collaborative, and competitive game modes to emerge as the last person standing. You’ll have to make allies, plan strategies, and venture through nostalgic worlds as you compete in a variety of different genres, such as shooting and racing games.

“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,” stated 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.”

Open is currently being developed for PCs and current-generation consoles. There is no information on when the game will be released. We’ll keep you up to date on the game via our Guide Hub here.
