nWay, a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, a leading company focused on non-homogeneous tokens (NFT), has launched Olympic Games Jam: Beijing 2022, the officially licensed multiplayer i.e. money-making party game for the Winter Olympics, which opens today.

"The Olympics is the biggest sporting event in the world. We couldn't think of a better type of game than a party game that allows everyone to master different gaming skills and participate in this global celebration," nWay CEO Taehoon Kim said in a statement."

The game turns a series of arcade-style winter sports into mini-games in which players can compete against each other. They will also be able to fully customize the appearance of their avatars.

The game is available for download on Android and iOS enabled devices and allows up to 15 players to compete in real time.

"[M]oving to the Olympics Jam: Beijing 2022 will allow gamers and NFT collectors to not only participate in the Games, but also own a piece of Olympic history," Kim said. He added that the company is planning to support the games with "ongoing updates in the coming months" to keep players engaged.

Gamers will collect Olympic NFT digital badges that can be earned through the game and can also be purchased on the nWayPlay.com marketplace, as well as from other collectors. According to the game's developers, those with these badges will receive higher levels of gameplay and exclusive character skins.

nWay states on its website that in addition to NFT, players can earn VTG, the game's primary in-game currency, which can be used to pay for entry fees, acceleration, and the purchase of NFT.
