The web3-based metaverse game platform Creta, located in Dubai, UAE, has announced the upcoming service of the latest installment in the beloved ‘Kingdom Under Fire’ series, titled ‘Kingdom Under Fire: The Rise (KUF: The Rise)’. The development team recently revealed a new video for Kingdom Under Fire: The Rise, showcasing graphics that redefine AAA standards, unique gameplay exclusive to the KUF series, and an impressive feature where users are guaranteed ownership of digital assets like in-game items. The game ecosystem is expanded through an intuitive NFT minting system for users to create and trade their in-game items.
‘Kingdom Under Fire’ is a real-time strategy simulation (RTS) game introduced by Phantagram in 2000 for PC. Over the years, it gained recognition for combining hero action and tactical unit gameplay on consoles, continuing the series’ legacy. They re-released ‘Kingdom Under Fire: War of Heroes’ on Steam last year after revamping the game with blockchain technology known as the Locus Chain GameChain, introducing the world’s first serverless online game service and allowing battles without the need for servers. The Creta platform plans to pioneer the new genre of NFT MMORPG, incorporating cutting-edge technologies like Web 3 and blockchain. They have also conducted an NFT pre-sale, which sold out shortly after release.
‘Kingdom Under Fire: The Rise’ is an MMORPG set in a medieval European world. It emphasizes player interaction, particularly PvP elements, which is a core aspect of classic MMORPGs. Various PvP modes, including individual and regional battles, are expected to be included, requiring players to fight and win against others to become the top players of the season and earn more rewards.
NFTs, which are considered the core of the game, apply to both items and characters. Unlike traditional game NFTs, ‘Kingdom Under Fire: The Rise’ NFTs are not focused on sale or distribution, but rather on improving gameplay. The goal is to create a positive cycle that maximizes the enjoyment of the game, thereby increasing the value of NFTs, while also safeguarding user time and effort through a system within the game. Regardless of category, all NFT items are treated as the user’s personal property, and systemic safeguards are implemented in the game accordingly. In addition to NFTs developed, produced, and sold by the developer, users have the option to create and mint their own NFTs. NFTs can be minted by users after satisfying the individual conditions of in-game items. ‘Kingdom Under Fire: The Rise’ NFTs are unique items with excellent collectible value, as they embody a combination of user effort, invested time, and luck.
Through enjoyment of the game, users’ time and effort are transformed into value through NFTs, which are then reflected in the game. Unlike existing MMORPGs, users will own their NFTs and directly experience asset value formation and Web 3 through this. It is expected that the economic activities and ecosystem expansion of ‘Kingdom Under Fire: The Rise’ will grow immensely over time. This is a revolutionary evolution that is ahead of its time and will set a new standard for MMORPGs. ‘Kingdom Under Fire: The Rise’ is currently being developed for PC/mobile and will be developed as a multiplatform service available for consoles in the future.
‘Kingdom Under Fire: The Rise’ is expected to provide gamers with an exciting experience by combining the tradition of the beloved IP((Intellectual Property) with modern features. There is growing interest in whether ‘Kingdom Under Fire: The Rise’ will be recognized as an innovative work leading the new generation of gaming trends. The development is being planned and project managed by Joo-hyung Jang, who previously served as a producer for Lineage and Aion, and led by Diverse’s Sang-yoon Lee, who was the executive producer of the Kingdom Under Fire series.
Creta’s ultimate vision is a massive ecosystem where an alliance of world-class developers, creators, producers, and more join to contribute their (high-level) creations, which are then reworked and circulated by users under smart contracts with clear intellectual property rights, utilizing the best of Web3.
Industry veterans like ‘Yoshiki Okamoto’, who developed the Street Fighter Series, Resident Evil Series and Monster Strike, and ‘Thomas Vu’, the executive producer behind League of Legends and Netflix’s Arcane, have already joined Creta. As Creta approaches its ultimate goal, ‘Kingdom Under Fire: The Rise’ is poised to expand into an unprecedented massive MMORPG ecosystem as more top-tier developers, creators, and producers around the world participate in and contribute their content and creations to ‘Kingdom Under Fire: The Rise.’
Creta is currently listed on Coinmarketcap as Creta World.

$CRETA is a Web3-based multiverse gaming platform headquartered in Dubai, UAE, with a team of developers, publishers, and blockchain experts who have made a name for themselves in the global gaming industry. These include Ray Nakazato, a respected producer in the Japanese and global gaming industry, Alexander Harutyunyan, former CEO of European game publisher INNOVA, and CCR’s Seokho Yoon, who developed Korea’s national game Fortress. In addition, Yoshiki Okamoto, a game industry veteran who developed Street Fighter 2 and Monster Strike, is participating as a major partner and is expected to lead the most competitive Web3 metaverse platform ecosystem. The partnership with Okamoto, the legendary game designer behind Street Fighter 2 and Monster Strike, which have collectively generated trillions of dollars in revenue, and Thomas Vu of League of Legends, is expected to result in a world-class lineup of Web3 game titles.
Creta World is comprised of four parts: the endlessly scalable Creta Multiverse, the Creta Game Platform (CGP), which powers a wide range of Web2 and Web3 games, Creta Studio, where anyone can create high-quality games and content, and Creta SuperClub, the Web3 community that connects the entire Creta platform. Creta Multiverse is in the process of implementing an ultra-large-scale multiverse (three metaverses to be opened sequentially) that will allow many different metaverses to combine and expand upon each other and aims to be the only web3 platform in the world with photorealistic visuals. The Creta Multiverse is designed to be a one-stop shop for various content services and ecosystems, including games in the MMORPG, Battle Royale, and casual genres, rather than separate executions. Creta SuperClub is the first service that allows users to fully own the data of their community within the legal framework. The rights to clubs and posts are technically NFTized, allowing NFT owners, such as operators and members, to own, trade, sell, acquire, and merge. It is also a truly decentralized community service where information about each club member is not stored on a specific server but is all on-chain. This allows influencers to manage their fans without being locked into a platform.
