DOS Labs, a prominent gaming studio, has launched its Avalanche Subnet, enabling a seamless gaming experience with no gas fees and high-speed transactions.
The subnet is aimed to create a rich ecosystem for game developers and players alike. The DOS Labs Subnet will support an exchange, asset management tools, and much more. The subnet will provide game developers with various SDKs, including Unity, Unreal, and others, which will help integrate web3 features into games, lowering the barrier to web3 game creation.
A team of gaming studios, including Heroes & Empires, Suga, Imba Games, and many others, has already started building the next generation of web3 games on this subnet. DOS Labs has formed the Vietnam Game Developer Association with the help of 11 studios and publishers. The alliance will bring games to DOS Subnet, and all forthcoming games will be represented by unique characters and backstories in DOS Labs’ upcoming Battle Royale game, MetaDOS.
MetaDOS is a free, innovative Battle Royale game that aims to launch on the subnet this June. Players will battle with up to 200 players per match, and the game brings the “Time-as-currency concept” into the Battle Royale genre. Each player will have a certain amount of Time when joining the game, and as they run out, they are eliminated. Players will have to fight and loot Time inside the game to become the last one standing and earn rewards.
Anh Le, co-founder of DOS Labs, spoke about why they chose Avalanche, saying: “Providing the best experience for onboarding Web2 players to Web3 gaming is our first mission. Currently, it takes over 20 steps for a player to be able to play an NFT game, and we aim to reduce them into 3 steps. We strongly believe in the long-term potential of the Avalanche network and DOS Subnet, where all game developers and players can benefit by utilizing our ecosystem. MetaDOS and Heroes & Empires will be the first movers on DOS Subnet.”
Ed Chang, head of gaming at Ava Labs, also commented, saying: “This Subnet represents an opportunity for DOS Labs and the Vietnam Game Developer Association to build an entire gaming platform, with new revenue streams and partnership opportunities that don’t exist elsewhere.”
