Neopets Metaverse combines classic elements of the original version with a robust variety of new features and activities to create a nostalgia-invoking experience designed to appeal to both seasoned and new players worldwide.

According to the company’s press release, players can expect to experience:

  • A diverse customization and care system.
  • Personalized Neohomes to design, create, and visit.
  • A brand new battle combat system
  • Various PvE (Player versus Environment) activities are used to train and grow your Neopets.
  • A unique experience to buy, sell, and trade items and accessories in the reimagined shops and P2P Marketplace.

After completing all the alpha version elements, players can expect to receive exclusive in-game prizes.

Since it was first launched, the game has drawn together a community of over 150 million players over two decades. Over one million users still play through the classic, browser-based experience. This new metaverse experience also makes sure familiar faces and games are part of the fun.

Neopets has long been a welcoming and inclusive community. With the integration of the blockchain ecosystem, the metaverse version will tap into the vast potential that GameFi has to offer while simultaneously achieving the vision to prolong generational memories and experiences for future Neopians.
