'Phantom Galaxies' Is Basically An Open-World Transformers RPG, And It Looks Great


'Phantom Galaxies' Is Basically An Open-World Transformers RPG, And It Looks Great

Phantom Galaxies is an upcoming sci-fi RPG that looks like it's just what the doctor ordered for Transformers fans craving an open-world mech shooter outing.


In this game, the goodies are the Mecha Starfighters for Neoterra. After humans desecrated their ancestral planets, the hostile Sha'Kari faction are intent on stamping out humankind. They'll only win the war if the soldiers of Neoterra assist and there are four classes to get to grips with - Lancer, Buster, Assault, and Breacher.

Promising a "gripping narrative campaign of survival and dominance in a hostile galaxy," the game is planned to enter early access in the second quarter of 2022. As no platforms have been specifically stated, it's possible that Phantom Galaxies is targeting the PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X to really make the most of the hardware and deliver what it shows in its new trailer.

Take a look at the explosive excitement Phantom Galaxies offers in its cinematic trailer below!



Once complete, it's aiming to become a "fully fleshed PC/console game featuring blockchain systems and NFTs to enable real player-driven governance and game asset ownership." Personally, my experience with non-fungible tokens or NFTs is minimal but developer Blowfish Studios assures its players that they will possess "digital property rights" in Phantom Galaxies.

As NFTs are certificates of ownership for something that doesn't exist in the material world, I'm not 100% sure what the developer is offering here. Sure, the collectibles, starfighters, avatars and more will be "one-of-a-kind" and belong only to that player, but surely their value would be dependent on Phantom Galaxies' success in the market.


When interviewed by GamesBeat about the integration of NFTs into Phantom Galaxies, Blowfish Studios co-founder Ben Lee appreciated that there might be uncertainty. "I know exactly what you're saying about how current blockchain and crypto games have been," he said. "I believe some started off as crypto indie developers, and these games came from blockchain projects and not game developers.

"What I truly want is true triple-A in a blockchain game experience where I own the assets and get the best of both worlds," concluded Lee. Well, if this is sounding like it's right up your street, those who subscribe for news on the game are able to claim a free NFT airdrop.
