The latest news on Peridot comes from a recent interview with senior producer Ziah Fogel in The Verge. So far, we know that the premise of the game is that: “After thousands of years of slumber, Peridots are waking to a world vastly different from the one in which they used to roam, and they’ll need your help to protect them from extinction.” These Peridots will all be unique and come with their own DNA, allowing for different variations upon the game’s creature archetypes via breeding.
Also, these creatures aren’t NFTs (yet) and can’t die, freeing you from two possible headaches. Finally, much of the gameplay involves going out in the real world to search for nests and find food for your Peridot, among other activities.
Peridot - Platforms
Currently, Peridot is set to arrive on both Android and iOS. No other platforms have yet been confirmed by Niantic, but make sure you stay tuned so you don’t miss that information if it drops.
