The leading Solana Metaverse and leading gaming hardware provider partner on custom PC products, unique giveaways and events
MIAMI & LOS ANGELES – June 7, 2022 – Star Atlas, a next-gen metaverse with triple-A game design and Unreal Engine 5 graphics built on the Solana blockchain, today announced its partnership with iBUYPOWER, a leading manufacturer of custom gaming PCs, and now the official computer hardware provider of Star Atlas. This is the first step in a long-term relationship to onboard new gamers to the metaverse.
“We’re really excited to join forces with iBUYPOWER to accelerate the adoption of web3 gaming,” said Michael Wager, Co-Founder and CEO of ATMTA, Inc., the principal development studio of Star Atlas. “There is a lot of skepticism around web3 gaming, and we’re happy to partner with the leading gaming hardware maker because we understand the needs of traditional gamers. iBUYPOWER builds great products, and we’re glad they share our vision and want to help get their gaming community in the Star Atlas metaverse so they can see just how great of a gaming experience it’s going to be.”
To celebrate this partnership, iBUYPOWER will be sponsoring the inaugural COPA, the first Star Atlas community event, by giving away a customized Star Atlas PC for the main competition. More details regarding the competition can be found in Star Atlas’ official social media channels.
Darren Su, Executive Vice President of iBUYPOWER, commented, “We love Michael and his team’s vision for Star Atlas, and we love that they’re focused on supporting their dedicated community. We’re thrilled to be able to power an AAA-quality metaverse on the blockchain, and this is going to be a great opportunity to help onboard our gamers into web3 with a game we know they’ll enjoy. The computers we’re customizing for Star Atlas are out of this world, and they’re going to be high-powered, quality builds we know our gamers and Star Atlas fans alike will love.”
Beyond COPA, Star Atlas and iBUYPOWER plans include the commercialization of a range of equipment that will help blur the lines between the physical world and the Metaverse, and the inclusion of iBUYPOWER as one of the pioneering members of the Star Atlas ecosystem.
