Blockchain-based gaming has gained momentum in recent years as the novel sensation in the crypto universe, to the point where blockchain games accounted for half of all blockchain activity in early 2023. As the trend expands, new players have joined the fray, looking beyond the initial token-collection craze and shifting the focus to gameplay elements.
The latest and greatest games are built with players’ evolving needs in mind, taking into account the popular genres that captivate the public, such as stealth and battle royale. On top of those, Last Remains is also looking to throw a zombie twist into the Web3 gaming scene.

Last Remains, a triple-A Web3 multiplayer battle royale zombie game that previously secured $4.75 million in funding from notable players in the crypto industry, including CoinFund, Fabric and Animoca Brands, has become the latest strategic partner of the Cointelegraph Accelerator — the startup booster leveraging Cointelegraph’s media capabilities.
Developed by a team with prior experience at Riot Games, Bethesda, Junglee Games and Blizzard Entertainment, Last Remains seeks to take the much-loved formula and bring it to a new level of quality by making use of Web3 technologies.
Staying true to the dynamics of the battle royale genre, players in Last Remains start the round at random locations throughout a zombie-infested city. While they begin with no real means to survive, the city map has no shortage of lootable items, consumables and weapons.
Combat-wise, the game offers a mix of Assassin’s Creed stealth action and PUBG’s iconic battle royale elements. Players can sneak up on the zombies, take them down with melee weapons, or rush in guns blazing.

It’s up to the player to pick from a large selection of weapons to fit their playstyle, from the iconic frying pan to the ever-popular katana. The ultimate goal is to survive until the rescue team swoops the winner up from an ever-shrinking active map. Among the first three players who reach the pick-up point, the one with the highest score — based on their loot and kills throughout the game — takes the round.
As part of its launch roadmap, the Last Remains team announced the minting of the first 5,000 Genesis Character nonfungible tokens. Following the sale, developers will spend the rest of Q2 conducting monthly alpha tests, followed by the beta phase in the next quarter.
The Cointelegraph Accelerator Program supports up-and-coming Web3 startups and projects by providing exposure through Cointelegraph, the pioneering crypto and blockchain media since 2013. The program picked Last Remains as a partner for its focus on gameplay, high production quality, the strong backing the game has received, and the developers’ track records. As part of the Accelerator program, Last Remains aims to establish its brand in the competitive arena by partnering with content creators and game developers.
