Epic Games is expanding its web3 footprint.
By releasing Verse, a brand-new metaverse programming language, the top gaming company Epic Games is expanding its web3 footprint. The demand for open-source, user-friendly programming languages to create blockchain-based applications, games, and platforms is increasing as web3 technologies take off. Thus, the web3 programming languages Clarity, Solidity, Curry, Mercury, and Rust, among others, are joined by Epic Games' Verse.
The new offering from Epic Games is promoted as an intuitive, logical language for creating web3-based applications. Tim Sweeney quotes Simon Peyton Jones of Epic Games in the preface to the verse. Verse, created by Lennart Augustsson, Koen Claessen, Ranjit Jhala, and Olin Shivers, will be equipped with a number of exceptional features, including the following:
- Scalable enough to enable executing code created by millions of programmers who do not know one another.
- The only conceivable approach to manage concurrency across 1M+ programmers is transactional from the start.
- Over time, strong interop guarantees A module's API supersedes the previous version's API is guaranteed at compile time.
- extensible mechanisms that allow the language to evolve without damaging the code.
Additionally, Epic Games has made Verse open-source, similar to their web2 platform, allowing developers, artists, and designers to freely employ functional logic like Curry and Mercury.
A shared 3D world fueled by an open economy and real-time social interaction between users are further features of the Verse language.

Additionally, the Verse language allows real-time social interaction between users in a shared 3D environment powered by an open economy. According to the presentation, Verse also aims to support "interoperable content with live updates of running code, while also leveraging operational standards from multiple game engines including Unity."
Verse also seeks to offer "interoperable content with live updates of running code, while also leveraging operational standards from many game engines, including Unity," according to the presentation.
Although the market for web3 developers is still in its infancy, there are currently only a few metaverse programming languages, with open-sourced Rust and the object-oriented, Turing-complete Solidity at the top of the list. All modern web3 programming languages are built on a computationally universal system known as a "Turing-complete" framework.
Verse from Epic Games is about to advance metaverse programming by enabling scalability, interoperability, and quick transactions, all while being propelled by other concepts.
