Ember Sword, the Ethereum play-to-earn game from Bright Star Studio, has recently raised new funding. Rob former world of warcraft lead designer Pardo and veteran Esports pro-Thresh are among those providing advice on the Ethereum play-to-earn game.


As part of this deal, Bitkraft Ventures will lead the investment deal. Twenty new investors have joined, including key executives in the gaming industry.


In July, Ember Sword sold more than $200 million worth of metaverse land. This is a big step forward for virtual land sales after Facebook initiated its metaverse push.


Before the recent surge in metaverse demand, Ember Sword’s large land sale occurred, with more than 35,000 players collectively spending over $203 million to purchase NFT land. 


According to Bright Star Studio CEO Mark Laursen, Pardo will help Ember Sword with play-to-earn game development and recruitment.

“He really liked where Ember Sword was going and the potential for this, and what we can do for moving the gaming industry forward,” said Laursen.


Players will be able to access the rich MMORPG world and economy as quickly as possible through the client and browser, guaranteeing a seamless experience.


The upcoming Ethereum-based fantasy game now has advisers, backers, and funding at its disposal, and its developers are working to deliver a playable experience.


The funds will enable Bright Star Studios to create a high-quality and immersive player-first gaming experience powered by a blockchain-based play-to-earn economy.


Aside from Bitkraft, investors include Rob Pardo, World of Warcraft's lead designer and former CCO of Blizzard, YouTuber Dr. DisRespect, Ryan Wyatt, head of YouTube Gaming, Kevin Lin, co-founder of Twitch, John Robinson, President and COO at 100 Thieves, Carlos Rodriguez, CEO of G2 Esports, Night Ventures, Sebastian Borget, co-founder of the Sandbox, Dennis "Thresh" Fong, former pro gamer and co-founder of Xfire.
