In the ever-evolving world of blockchain gaming and digital ecosystems, adaptation is key. At Vulcan Forged, you know we’ve been hard at work over the past 12-18 months, making strategic changes to our ecosystem. And it’s now time for our suite of websites, our PC game launcher, and our Discord server to get a long overdue facelift. These Vulcan Forged updates are geared towards making it easier for our existing users to navigate but also to attract the next wave of users. We need to ensure our channels and products remain clean, intuitive, and engaging. In this article, we’ll take you through the exciting transformations we’ve undergone and what you can expect next.
Streamlined Website: Vulcan Forged’s Key Updates
Once we are live (sometime on Sept 6th), you’ll notice right away that our website has undergone a major facelift, with a renewed focus on the Vulcan Forged brand and its sub-brands: Elysium, MetaScapes, and Studios. The overall look is more sober and definitely more aligned to a corporate website. We’ve simplified our messaging and homepage to offer a more intuitive experience and clarify our brand hierarchy. Here are some key highlights as part of our Vulcan Forged Updates:
- Simplified Menu: We know a lot of OGs have loved the Vulcan Forged website menu but it is time to change and evolve. As such, our menu has been revamped for a cleaner and more user-friendly layout. You’ll still be able to find the links you love to access in the bottom menu (bottom of the page) and throughout all our websites.
- Discord is more Prominent Discord: We’ve given more prominence to our Discord server in the menu, recognizing it as the heartbeat of our ecosystem. It is now easier to join, connect, engage, and stay updated.
- Top-fold Announcement Carousel and thin banner: Stay in the loop with the latest developments through our new announcement carousel and banner.
- Accessible Marketplaces: You can still access the marketplaces via the menu.
- Our core brands: With Vulcan Studios, Elysium and MetaScapes at the heart of the brand hierarchy (with all their respective key products and games underneath), we’ve gone with a clean look and overview of these. That allows new users and players to quickly narrow it down to what they are interested in and dig deeper.
- Quick Access Tiles: At the bottom of the page, we’ve added a tile section to help you quickly access the essential links you need. From quickly accessing My Forge to getting the right documentation to start your project on Elysium, we’ve provided what we feel are the four key links to getting engaged with our entire ecosystem.
What’s Coming Next?
Our commitment to enhancing your experience continues. Here’s a sneak peek into what you can expect in the near future:
- Elysium Sub-Page: We’ll be creating a dedicated sub-page for Elysium, offering a more comprehensive look at this exciting aspect of our ecosystem.
- Vulcan Studios Website: Get ready for a dedicated website for Vulcan Studios, which will likely become the home of a deeper and cleaner VulcanVerse and Berserk experience. More to come soon!
- Homepage Modules: We’ll be adding more modules to the homepage to provide you with richer content and a more immersive experience.
- Design Enhancements: Brace yourself for design improvements, including parallax effects and more, to make your journey through our platform even more visually appealing.
Changes to the PC Game Launcher
Our PC game launcher will also see significant improvements (by September 8th):
- Realigned to Vulcan Studios: The launcher now seamlessly integrates with Vulcan Studios, featuring updated logos and branding to reinforce our identity. We are aiming to position Vulcan Forged and Vulcan Studios has the leader in the web3 gaming space and we need to ensure all our products are aligned.
- Consistent Branding: Look out for a stand-alone button that you’ll find across our website and other platforms, creating a cohesive brand identity.
- Enhanced User Experience: We’ve added the ability to close game pop-ups with the familiar cross in the top right corner for a smoother experience. Simple but for reasons, it wasn’t there!
- Refined Game Hierarchy: We’ve made subtle changes to the hierarchy of our games, ensuring a more logical and user-friendly structure.
We definitely encourage you to download and update your launcher with the newest version today.

- Channel Realignment: We’ve reorganized our channels to make it easier for you to engage, share, and connect with fellow users.

FAQs and Help
We are creating this section and will update it regularly with the most asked questions regarding the changes
Will I still be able to play the latest versions of the games if I continue to use the old version of the launcher
Yes, it shouldn’t be a problem. However, we strongly encourage you to download and update your launcher to the latest version. Additionally, we are actively working on a new launcher version that will enable automatic updates directly within the launcher. Stay tuned for more information on this development.
