Containment Corps, an online multiplayer cooperative first-person tower defense shooter, announced this week that it has joined Enjin (ENJ), a blockchain project building a decentralized ecosystem for gaming.

According to Containment Corps’ Steam page, the game lets players choose their class and coordinate their defense against contaminated swamp creatures. Defense relies on a combination of unique abilities and powerful turrets with a dependency on crystal energy supply to maintain full-base functionality.
By integrating with the Enjin platform, Containment Corps plans to leverage ERC-1155 tokens to represent in-game assets, including craftable items, to fuel the game’s loot system.
“Unlike a lot of other blockchain ‘game’ projects right now, Containment Corps is focused on providing the player quality gameplay first and foremost,” said the Containment Corps team in the announcement. “We see utilization of Enjin as a way to provide both a revenue model and engagement booster for a game that already exists, as opposed to using it to hype vaporware. We hope that we can leverage the passionate community dedicated to supporting the blockchain space to try new things and show players some new and intriguing use cases for game development as a whole.”
Enjin Coin is currently up 3.4% over the last 24 hours to $0.026272, giving the project a $20 million market cap.
Containment Corps Early Access was released on Steam on September 21, 2017, and currently costs $9.99 to download.
