Ubisoft Entertainment SA (a French video game producer based in Montreuil) has revealed that the company launched Ubisoft Quartz, a blockchain-based platform. The platform is expected to enhance certain games by using playable, non-fungible token assets (NFT), according to Ubisoft Entertainment SA.
Ubisoft Quartz Revealed
Since long, NFT technology has been a hot topic among videogame companies. Electronic Arts and Square Enix all indicated earlier in this year that they were considering NFT. Ubisoft announced that it launched a platform to use NFT technology via the Tezos blockchain.
“Introducing Ubisoft Quartz,” the gaming company tweeted on Tuesday. “We’re bringing the first energy-efficient NFTs playable in a AAA game to Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. Try it in the beta from December 9 with three free cosmetic drops.”
Ubisoft is well known for its franchise gaming titles like “Assassin’s Creed,” “Prince of Persia,” the Tom Clancy game franchise, “Rabbids Invasion,” and “Just Dance.” The Ubisoft Quartz website notes that the platform is a “place where you can acquire Digits, the first Ubisoft NFTs (non-fungible tokens), playable in an HD game and rely[ing] on an energy-efficient technology.” The company adds:
Digits can help you complete your mission in style.

A few NFT items are displayed on the portal, including an M4A1 tactical rifle and an enhanced helmet. The limited-edition pants can also be seen. The crypto asset XTZ has seen a dramatic increase in its value since Ubisoft announced the NFT platform. The value of XTZ has risen 26% since Wednesday, December 8.
The three NFT drops for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon game are free, the web portal details, but only Ghost Recon Breakpoint Ubisoft Connect PC players can acquire and play with Digits. “Every single Digit features a serial number,” Ubisoft says. “This serial number is displayed on the collectible and on the in-game item. Each Digit will also be tied to the player names of all its previous and current owners.” Ubisoft’s NFT platform description also notes:
Every Digit is truly individual because of the combination of serial numbers and ownership histories.
