Today, Neverdie Studios announced that 12 players in Entropia Universe looted a little over 200,000 PED (in-game currency), that values around $20,000 for Killing Zombie Kong. For some of you who are not familiar with Entropia Universe, the game has a unique economic system where players can exchange hard-earned in-game cash to real-life US dollars at a fixed exchange rate of 10:1. “ZOMBIE KONG” is the first Mega Shared Loot Boss in an unfolding KING KONG virtual reality trilogy produced by NEVERDIE Studios in collaboration with Universal Partnerships & Licensing and based on Universal Pictures’ King Kong film. To hunt Zombie Kong, the group of 12 had to fight their way through more than 1,600 zombies before even getting a chance to take down the ultimate prize, Zombie Kong.
“ZOMBIE KONG has proven to be a big hit and has become a new focal point for social gaming on Planet ROCKtropia,” said Jon “NEVERDIE” Jacobs, founder of NEVERDIE Studios. “I predict when virtual reality goggles become ubiquitous, we will quickly see regular $100,000 loots, and a new breed of professional virtual reality hunters will be born!”
In addition to looting valuable treasures with real cash value, players are collecting Map Fragments that will lead them to discover the secret of KING KONG and unlock further adventures.
