Ubisoft Quartz Digits: Details
As an NFT, each Digit can be uniquely identified thanks to its own serial number. It will track it’s current as well as previous owners. This ‘certificate of ownership’ will be stored on a blockchain. Each Digit can be put on sale for eligible players who can acquire those on third-party platforms outside of the Ubisoft ecosystem.
Ubisoft Quartz Digits: Availability
Ubisoft notes that Ubisoft Quartz will only be available to those players that meet select criteria. In order to do so, players need to be at least 18 years old. Further, they need to play Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint on Ubisoft Connect for Windows PC and reach at least XP Level 5 in the game.
Ubisoft Quartz will be available in beta starting December 9 at 6:00PM UTC in the USA, Canada, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Australia and Brazil. The publisher further notes that it will offer three drops of Digits for free on December 9, 12, and 15. It will do so as a reward to early adopters among players. These Digits can be claimed on the Ubisoft Quartz platform and played with in Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Further drops are being planned for early 2022.
