What do you think of Yuga Labs’ latest teaser for “Otherside”, an NFT-based MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game)? It’s thrilling. The project is set to launch in April 2022, according to Yuga Labs. Bored Ape Yacht Club creators have something big up their sleeves thanks to ApeCoin’s powering the project. In the NFT space, speculation has flooded the space since the teaser was posted.

At the time of writing, according to CoinMarketCap, ApeCoin ($APE) is already the 37th largest cryptocurrency, out of over 12,200 cryptocurrencies in existence.

Now valued in the billions, Bored Ape’s Yuga Labs also confirmed plans to launch Otherside, a Web3 MMORPG play-to-earn metaverse with NFTs.

Yuga Labs announced today that it has raised $450 million in a funding round led by Andreessen Horowitz, bringing the Web3 company to a total valuation of $4 billion. The Miami-based Yuga Labs confirmed the funding and valuation numbers to Decrypt via email today.

Animoca Brands, Coinbase, MoonPay, and FTX are among the other Web3 companies that contributed to the massive funding round, which is Yuga Labs’ first to date.

As a leading NFT brand, Yuga Labs—which created the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFTs and recently acquired the CryptoPunks and Meebits IP from Larva Labs—is looking to further expand its presence. With its new funding, Yuga plans to hire more employees and develop brand partnerships.

On Friday, it teased a video promoting Otherside, an NFT-based MMORPG game where players can use their NFTs as playable characters. From Yuga Labs’ tweet, it’s likely ApeCoin will be Otherside’s official in-game currency and that more will be revealed come April.

Gordon Goner, co-founder of the BAYC who was previously publicly outed by BuzzFeed, told The Verge that Yuga aims to create a “gamified” and decentralized experience with Otherside.

Yuga’s CEO Nicole Muniz said that Otherside will be inclusive to NFTs beyond just those managed by Yuga Labs, and that “a few different game studios” are helping develop the game.

“We’re opening the door to effectively a walled garden and saying ‘Everybody’s welcome,’” Muniz told The Verge.
