Pixel Vault Shares Major New Update

Pixel Vault intends to innovate in public instead of build in silence, according to a new video shared by the company on Twitter.

❗ Why It Matters

Gaming is picking up steam in web3 headlines, led by the success of Yuga Lab's Dookey Dash, and Pixel Vault has no cemented its vision within this category as well. What was once lauded as a top ecosystem that eventually was hampered by complexity and too many moving parts, it will be interesting to watch Pixel Vault move forward with a clear focus.

📝 The Deets

In the video, Pixel Vault breaks down its gameplan: 

  • March + April: 
    • Focus On Lore: Focusing on the lore for titles like Battle of the Moon, Mutant Origins, Heroes & Villian, Evolution of Earth, and more. 
    • Inhabitant Universe: Package Blue, Act 1
    • Comic "Punk 4" which will be free to read, and not a new mint. 
  • May:
  • And more: PV shared more hints and sneak peeks at the ecosystem's unfolding lore.

Pixel Vault released a trailer including details of its upcoming game Tuesday.

The Pixel Vault game will allow users to play as their MetaHero in a "3v3 auto brawler," or auto battler game, like Teamfight Tactics or the blockchain game Illuvium, which is currently in beta.

Holders will be able to use gear and planets in the battles and the video urges users to "bring your $POW" — one of the tokens in the Pixel Vault ecosystem. $POW is up 33 percent to $0.0344 since the tweet.

MetaHero Identities, the main avatar collection in Pixel Vault, is up to a 1.27 ETH floor price after hitting an all-time low floor price of 0.59 ETH on Sept. 17.

MetaHero Updates

There is a major focus on making amazing and fun gaming experiences for Punks Comic and Metahero.

The first phase of the MetaHero blockchain game has an expected release in fall 2022. In total there will be six different games released in multiple phases over the next 2 years. 

In between the end of the Phase 1 staking period for Metaheros in June and the Phase 2 gamified tokenomics with the blockchain release in the fall, the United Planets DAO will vote on whether to extend the staking period to fill the gap for 2-3 months. 

Project founder, GFunk, talked about the look and feel of Metahero Identities, indicating in the future they will be new and distinct.

Additionally, Pixel Vault is working with creative partners and advisors within Hollywood on the MetaHero and Punks Comic visions.

The creative directors envision Metaheros, DOTs, and Species with different looks than previously seen. Metahero holders will be able to change their Metahero character to the style that suits them, but the new style will not create a dilutive NFT collection.

In relation to Sidekicks, it was revealed that Sidekicks are a codename for a project that has become much grander and more complex than initially planned. New complexities are expected that have not yet been utilized in the NFT space thus far. 

The Sidekicks will involve both Species and DOTs. Species will be what people are envisioning Sidekicks to be, while DOTs, Planets, and Metaheros play a bigger role in the Metahero story, NFT ecosystem, and game yet to be unveiled. It was announced that Mintpass#2 Sidekicks (or Species and DOTs?) will be revealed before the release of Phase 1 of the blockchain game in the fall. 



Pixel Vault is working with partners for real life utility for existing and future collectors. This utility will be announced in the next few weeks.

It was mentioned that Pixel Vault will be doing something different than other projects, perhaps by providing holders with fun ways to interact. These innovations will kick this off at NFT NYC.

When it comes to merch, new merchandise will be available in the near future and purchasable in the ecosystem's native $POW token.

Punks Comic Updates

The Punks Comic story will also be much bigger than the team initially envisioned. Pixel Vault is going to use the Punks Comic story with the main character Courtney to bring web3 culture to the mainstream. 

PUNKS Comic #3 is expected to be released in June, completing the Genesis Comic set. The third comic will be a PUNKS x MetaHero crossover edition.

Planet DAO Updates

GFunk announced that they are close to releasing a groundbreaking DAO website that will set the standard for DAO participation.

These plans involve gamifying participation to improve the strength and community that makes up the DAO.  This will be a major piece to the Metahero game and is likely to make Sidekicks a lot more important. 

Pixel Vault Sports

Pixel Vault hired Tzvi “T” Twersky, former Sports Marketing Lead at TikTok and CMO of the Mamba Sports Academy, to lead "Pixel Vault Sports."

PV Sports will tell stories of athletes in a fun comic-type way. More information on this endeavor is to be announced at VeeCon on May 20. Pixel Vault sports intends to use sports and the power of storytelling to onboard more people into web3 rather than just with NFTs and tokens.

It was also revealed that PV Sports and Vayner Sports are working together again with more expected to be unveiled at VeeCon (AJ and Gary Vaynerchuk are investors in Pixel Vault).


There is going to be revamped marketing for Phase 2 of Pixel Vault. The teams marketing will not talk about things 6+ months in the future and rather only things that are imminent. Furthermore, news will be coming out in a more structured and frequent cadence with a lot to be released over the next two months at VeeCon and NFT NYC.
