Announcing a Brand-New Bloodstained Feature
We just received word from Roberto Piraino, Bloodstained brand manager at 505 Games, that he had an exciting new feature to announce—one that couldn't wait another day! Here he is to tell you everything you need to know:
Hello everyone, today we are proud to announce something truly unique and groundbreaking that no other videogame out there has done…
Players will have the option to mine cryptocurrency while playing Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night!
At launch, supported currencies will include Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Zcash, with additional currencies possibly being added at a later date. Players will also have the freedom of linking the currency wallet of their choice to the game’s mining function.
The team has been working on this feature for quite some time, and as you can imagine, the challenges have been numerous and daunting, but thanks to a lot of dedication and technical skill it’s become a reality.
At the moment, due to the resources required by modern GPUs for cyptocurrency mining, this feature will only be enabled for copies of Bloodstained on PC that meet certain system requirements, (system requirements TBD as we are still optimizing) but we are also working hard to make this feature a reality for our fans on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch* and Xbox One.
In the meantime, we’re happy to show a sneak peek at how currency mining in Bloodstained will work with a screencap of the menu screen where you’ll be able to select your options for mining currencies:
We look forward to revealing and talking more about this feature and the possibilities it brings in the near future. For example, the team is currently evaluating launching “Igacoin” which will seek to decentralize the experience of dark gothic fantasy monster slaying and empower future fans with direct investment opportunities in the future of Koji Igarashi’s games and his partnership with 505 Games.
As always, we want to thank every single one of our fans for their support and interest, this amazing journey is made possible by all of you!
