in one Interview with Wccftech CEO of GSC Game World said about the NFT project in Stalker 2. Among other things, the question was whether blockchain technology could work not only in online games, but also in individual games like Stalker 2. There is an important difference between Stalker 2 and other multiplayer games, according to the CEO, is that as a player, you can be a complete character within the game. NFTs are OK in single-player titles as long as the show is fun and valuable, is optional, doesn’t interfere with others’ experience, and doesn’t change gameplay.
