This launcher build will replace the current MetaMask & WC sign in with Epic Games Sign tied with web3auth.io MPC wallet generation in order to provide a seamless sign in experience for players (credentials will be passed to the game, automating the sign in process for Arcas Champions too, all with freshly created wallets linked to player profiles).

Marketing and Community During Q1 we will have game nights in discord as well as gaming cafe LAN tournaments with token prizes in order to start building a gamer community. Early Access Release
Arcas Champions
This will be the first public release of the game and replace the p2p matchmaking system with a centralised server approach. F2p will allow players to equip and use all weapons. Players can purchase Champions (6.99 USD provisionally) to select their totem abilities and receive a set of randomly generated base stats. Champions are also NFTs on the blockchain and will give players access to our Compete and Earn framework with weekly MMR writes on chain.
Arcas Launcher
This launcher will replicate an industry standard gaming experience (like battle.net, Steam etc). It will automatically and securely generate MPC self-custodial wallets for users tied to their Epic Games ID and allow gamers to then top-up their wallets and ERC 4337 smart wallet via Fiat on-ramp, Binance Pay and direct crypto transfer.
Arcas Dapp
The Dapp at this stage will include: - Information on the project and the ability to download our launcher - Web3 connectivity and account abstraction - Champion purchasing, management and marketplace - Skillstaking dashboard for ARCAS token holders and revenue share
Marketing and Community
Leading up to Early Access release we will have a high quality cinematic trailer to help market and onboard gamers into our ecosystem which we can share and propagate across key partners and esports players. Full Product Release
Arcas Champions The full release of Arcas Champions will give players a complete multiplayer and sandbox experience. There will be a f2p progression system unlocking weapons, loadout mods and weapon tuning alongside a consumable based progression system for levelling up and customising Champions. Purchasable and equippable skins will also be added to the game. Skins will make use of limited supply or limited purchase periods (like Fortnite) in order to introduce scarcity to skins. All purchased skins will be blockchain based NFTs.
Arcas Launcher
At this stage we shall explore listing our game on other launchers as well as explore console porting in order to bring the game to a larger audience. The Launcher user experience shall be improved and optimized based on user feedback to support the gaming experience.
Arcas Dapp
Similarly to the Launcher, the Dapp is going to progressively add features in order to support and improve the user experience for Arcas Champions gamers as well as Arcas token holders (investors). The dapp will add: - Player Champion governance DAO. - Arcas Champions Skin store, management and marketplace.
2025 and onwards:
Following the release of Arcas Champions, we shall work to grow the Arcas ecosystem with more games designed under the same "Compete and Earn" philosophy whilst still improving Arcas Champions based on Player Governance.
