The massively multiplayer online soccer management game, Soccer Manager Elite (SME), which runs on Xaya blockchain, has relaunched itself as Soccerverse. And in addition, Soccerverse Ltd, a separate legal business, has taken over the development of the game. A new brand and legal identity will allow the Soccerverse team to continue creating, guiding, and promoting the game with the current user base. Also, with the release of Beta 4, the game will switch over to the Polygon blockchain from the Xaya blockchain. Part of the goal is to guarantee that it has access to as many potential users as possible.
The power behind the Soccerverse identity
Soccerverse is now concentrating its efforts on developing a new user interface. The UI is based on a browser and is compatible with desktop, mobile, and tablet devices. Soccerverse is also a DeFi-oriented game. Football teams and players form DAOs and fractionalized NFTs in which players can hold shares. With such shares, players have the ability to put forth candidates for club managers and player agents, and vote on those candidates.
Xaya Creative Lead and Soccerverse Co-Founder Andrew Colosimo notes, “What we’ve created with SME is lightyears ahead of what most people think of when it comes to blockchain games.” He added that the name Soccer Manager Elite does not adequately convey either what the game actually is or where they intend to take it to in the future and that Soccerverse is a lot more befitting name.
Soccerverse has hired Andrew Gore, a game industry veteran, to its team as part of a new project. Andrew has worked in the video game industry for more than two decades. He has created several successful games including FIFA, Need for Speed, Soccer Manager Worlds, and the Soccer Manager series. In addition, the company expects to hire more top talents in the coming months.
