Crayta, from Unit 2 Games, has announced its release date, appearing in the very near future on the 1st of July 2020. A ‘first on Stadia’ title, Crayta offers a suite of accessible game creation tools and let’s players share their builds instantly with others via Stadia’s State Share Beta.
Stadia Pro subscribers will be able to play the game for free, gaining access to the the Premium Edition at no additional cost as part of their membership. There are going to be two editions of the game, with the Deluxe version offering a range of additional items to use in your creations.
The Crayta: Premium Edition includes the base version of the game, 500 Crayta Credits (in-game currency for purchase of cosmetics) and promises seasonal post-launch content through 2020.
The Crayta: Deluxe Edition meanwhile bags you the base version of the game, exclusive cosmetic items, the Mesmer Outfit Collection, Hexx Outfit Collection, an exclusive Digit Craytawear Colourway, a Jellyfish Drone, a Hocus Pocus Emote, the Thunderbolt Emoticon, 2 Exclusive Icons, 5 Exclusive Sprays, an XP boost, 1000 Crayta Credits, and access to the seasonal post-launch content through 2020 as well.
Stadia Pro owners will also be able to upgrade to the Deluxe Edition for an additional fee. As it stands pricing is yet to be confirmed for any of versions.
State Share Beta is the first taste of one of Stadia’s integral tricks; State Share. You’ll be able to join each other’s games and creations from pretty much any device, making it a hugely powerful and impressive tool, though it will presumably rely on you having talked all of your friends into getting Stadia, and Crayta. It’s as simple as hitting a button in Crayta to generate a unique link specific to your in-game creation, and sending it off to your friends. I guess you’ll just have to make something so incredible they simply can’t say no.
Games within Crayta can support up to 20 players, giving you more than enough space to pull people in, and we’ll hopefully see some unique and innovative multiplayer shenanigans going on soon after it’s launch on the 1st of July.
