May 29 2024

Sequence x Xai partnership: Xai Builder

Today marks the official launch of Xai Builder, an all-in-one developer console powered by Sequence technology.

The partnership between Xai and Sequence provides Xai developers with the most comprehensive web3 tooling and infrastructure suite, all within a familiar developer environment and UI.

With Xai Builder, game developers and content creators have everything they need to build amazing games that players will love, all in one seamless and intuitive interface.

Xai unlocks new web3 experiences for billions of gamers

Xai is the world’s first Layer 3 solution for AAA gaming. Powered by Offchain Labs’ Arbitrum technology, Xai was developed to enable real economies and open trade in the next generation of video games. 

Additionaly, Ex Populus, founded by experts from industry giants Activision, Pixar, Ubisoft, and others, is the pioneering game developer on the Xai chain and believes that blockchains should primarily serve as a backend technology, and complex web3 interactions should be abstracted away. This approach enables traditional gamers to enjoy the advantages of blockchain without encountering the often high barriers typically associated with web3 experiences.

This core philosophy underpins Xai’s mission of collaborating with top-tier, experienced game developers and partners to level up web3 gaming with smooth, secure, and immersive experiences. Xai empowers developers to explore new ways of incorporating blockchain benefits into their games, ultimately enriching the player experience. Xai’s gaming ecosystem is a testament to this with a portfolio spanning  Crypto Unicorns, Lost Glitches, Final Form, and many more.

Today, Xai is making it easier than ever to bring web2 gamers into the web3 ecosystem. Players don’t need to grapple with unfamiliar technology, hidden costs, unexpected charges, and unsafe transactions – Xai handles everything behind the scenes and offers a reliable and secure network, allowing players to focus on just one thing – having fun.

The collaboration between Xai and Sequence aims to empower developers with the tools and infrastructure required to build exceptional web3 applications and games. Xai Builder is the best solution for game developers to onboard, monetize, grow, and retain players.

“Several of our gaming partners have already begun leveraging Xai Builder to deploy their games to Xai. With our recently announced strategic partnership with MIX Games, We expect Xai Builder to help onboard hundreds of MIX’s titles to Xai over the next year, establishing Xai as the leading web3 gaming network."

Tobias Batton, CEO of Ex Populus and core contributor to Xai.

"The Arbitrum Foundation is excited about the potential Xai Builder unlocks for game development. By offering a user-friendly developer console with integrated features like gas fee elimination and familiar sign-up processes, Xai Builder removes significant barriers to entry for studios exploring web3 integration. We believe Xai Builder will be instrumental in bringing the power of blockchain to the next generation of Developers."
