Forgotten Runiverse MMORPG Migrates to Ronin Blockchain

Forgotten Runiverse, a magical fantasy MMORPG developed by Bisonic, Inc. and Magic Machine, is migrating from Arbitrum to the Ronin blockchain. This move is aimed at leveraging Ronin's capabilities to enhance the gaming experience and reach a broader audience. Ronin, an EVM-based blockchain developed by Sky Mavis, has established itself as a leading gaming chain, serving 1.44 million daily active addresses.

What is Forgotten Runiverse?

Forgotten Runiverse is based on the lore of the popular NFT collection Forgotten Runes Wizard's Cult. This free-to-play, pixel art MMORPG allows players to engage in collaborative gameplay, contributing to the game’s evolving narrative. The franchise extends beyond gaming, featuring a globally distributed comic series, an upcoming animated TV series, and a substantial digital collectibles ecosystem valued at $110 million.

The game encourages community involvement, enabling players to shape the gameplay journey by contributing lore and using in-game plots. In Forgotten Runiverse, players can form guilds, embark on PvE expeditions, and engage in PvP battles, all while crafting items and gathering resources. The game is being developed by Bisonic, Inc. and Magic Machine.

More About Magic Machine

Magic Machine, founded in 2021, is the creative studio behind Forgotten Runes. It aims to disrupt traditional media through decentralized ownership and community engagement, fostering co-creation within its entertainment franchises.

Strategic Move to Ronin

Ronin is a gaming-centric EVM blockchain developed by Sky Mavis, the creator of Axie Infinity. It has proven its scalability by supporting millions of daily active users and processing over $4 billion in NFT volumes. Ronin’s infrastructure supports near-instant transactions with negligible fees, making it the top choice for web3 games.

This makes Ronin an ideal platform for Forgotten Runiverse, which aims to bring web3 gaming to the mass market. Sky Mavis CEO and Co-Founder Trung Nguyen expressed enthusiasm for the migration, highlighting the alignment between Forgotten Runiverse’s vision and the Ronin community’s values.

"The Forgotten Runiverse team has dedicated over three years to crafting a full MMORPG built for mass-market adoption that’s free-to-play on mobile and computers.  The Forgotten Runiverse’s vision of building a game that enables the community to interact in meaningful ways through shared experiences, storytelling, and adventure resonates with the Ronin community. We are thrilled to see this genre and gameplay experience come to our community and welcome The Cult into the Ronin ecosystem."

Upcoming Events and Launch

The transition to Ronin will kick off with a closed beta event on July 31st, followed by a public gameplay event in August. This pre-alpha New Foundations event will offer players the chance to mint and build on plots, earning exclusive gameplay rewards. Players will explore new dungeons with unique quests and story content, enhancing their experience in the expansive fantasy world of Forgotten Runiverse.

Bisonic co-founder Kata commented: "While many companies are building the future of web3 gaming, Ronin stands out by delivering the only successful blend of web3 technology and community at scale - the perfect recipe for a successful MMORPG. Ronin is the true pioneer in web3 gaming and the home of real gamers, driving impact through its token utility, daily active users, and the 'Ronin Effect. We're very excited to have such a strong partner to bring Forgotten Runiverse to the market."
