Blockchain-based gaming has gained momentum in recent years as the novel sensation of the crypto universe, to the point where blockchain gaming accounted for half of all blockchain activity in the early part of 2023. As the trend spreads, new players join the fray, looking past the initial token-collection craze and shifting the focus to gameplay elements.
The latest and greatest games are created with the changing needs of players, taking into account popular genres that attract the public, such as stealth and battle royale. On top of those, Last Remains is also looking to throw a zombie twist into the Web3 gaming scene.

Last Remains, a triple-A Web3 multiplayer battle royale zombie game that previously raised $4.75 million in funding from prominent players in the crypto industry, including CoinFund, Fabric and Animoca Brands, has become Cointelegraph’s newest strategic partner Accelerator — the startup booster leveraging Cointelegraph’s media capabilities.
Developed by a team with previous experience at Riot Games, Bethesda, Junglee Games and Blizzard Entertainment, Last Remains seeks to take the beloved formula and bring it to a new level of quality by using Web technologies3.
Staying true to the dynamics of the battle royale genre, players in Last Remains will start the round in random locations throughout the city filled with zombies. While they start out with no real way to survive, the city map has no shortage of loot, tools and weapons.
Combat-wise, the game offers a mix of Assassin’s Creed stealth action and PUBG’s iconic battle royale elements. Players can sneak up on zombies, take them down with melee weapons, or rush in with guns blazing.

It is up to the player to choose from a wide selection of weapons to suit their play style, from the iconic frying pan to the ever popular katana. The ultimate goal is to survive until the rescue team swoops down victorious from an ever-shrinking active map. Among the first three players to reach the pick-up point, the one with the highest score – based on their steals and kills throughout the game – takes the round.
As part of its launch roadmap, the Last Remains team announced the mining of the first 5,000 Genesis Character immutable tokens. After the sale, the developers will spend the rest of Q2 conducting monthly alpha tests, followed by the beta phase in the next quarter.
The Cointelegraph Accelerator Program supports upcoming Web3 startups and projects by providing exposure through Cointelegraph, the pioneering crypto and blockchain media since 2013. The program chose Last Remains as a partner for its focus on gameplay, high production quality, strong support. the game received, and the track records of the developers. As part of the Accelerator program, Last Remains aims to establish its brand in the competitive arena by partnering with content creators and game developers.
