S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Getting Blockchain Items

GSC Game World announces it is also doing the blockchain thing, announcing the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Metaverse, a marketplace for unique items for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl, the slightly overdue shooter sequel. GSC has never been stellar at handling real money, so maybe virtual transactions will work out better. Word is the first drop will involve the opportunity to play as an NPC (as contradictory as that sounds). This will be followed by more a secretive second release. In any event they promise these blockchain items will not effect gameplay:
Beginning in December 2021, users may register for item drops that will evolve into a new gaming feature built on top of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2. The first drop will take place via auction and is scheduled for January, 2022. As part of the drop series, the first-ever metahuman will be released and exposed to hundreds of millions of gamers worldwide. In-game, the metahuman will appear as an 'NPC', or a non-playable character. The face of the real owner will be recreated in the game by using photogrammetry technology, resulting in the highest possible level of realism.

The second drop will follow in February with the highly secretive genesis packs. The next drops will be announced on Twitter and Discord.

To add, any S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2-related drops won't influence the gameplay itself or give in-game advantages over other players.

That Twitter thread is comedy gold.

Helf, a very simple explanation:

Account type items are things that are "owned" by the account holder (permanence/impermanence debate about digital "goods" aside) so you can apply them to...whatever.

An NFT is...you buying the receipt to something. You own the receipt that says you own the actual receipt but not the actual thing itself. That's where the "non-fungible" part comes in on an NFT. You can sell the receipt to someone else and the chain of custody is stored an in allegedly immutable ledger aka "blockchain". However, the actual thing never comes in to your possession, just the receipt.

Yes, it is as ridiculously stupid as it sounds. It's the modern version of Dutch tulip mania.
