The Gods of Asgard team has announced the imminent launch of its much-anticipated Play-to-Earn (P2E) blockchain game, Gods of Asgard, scheduled for July 2022.
With the global gaming market expected to reach a $315 billion valuation by 2026 and global cryptocurrency adoption surging to new highs every year, Gods of Asgard looks set in being a Web3 frontrunner by effectively combining decentralized finance (DeFi), non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and high quality graphical gameplay to offer top-notch entertainment and a rewarding experience for all gamers.
Gods of Asgard’s main objective is to integrate the utility of NFTs as playable game characters that connect to a robust gaming platform, all while allowing players to retain full control and ownership of their in-game assets and earning rewards on the feats they accomplish in-game.
Set in the realm of the Midgard universe and deeply rooted in Norse mythology, players will be introduced to an expansive open world built on the Unity game engine. Taking inspiration from games like Elden Ring and Fortnite while offering realistic 3D modeling graphics, the platform offers players a fully immersive gaming experience embracing an exhilarating battle royale style Player-versus-Environment (PvE) setting with a simple motto – Battle| Survive | Earn.
Additional features include the ability to breed(summon) new generation NFT characters, sacrifice existing NFTs to upgrade characters into higher tier levels and scholarship programs allowing owners to rent their NFTs to aspiring players new to the game.
Being a highly scalable platform, future expansions will introduce Player-versus-Player (PvP) mode, virtual reality, skill upgrades, crafting and the introduction of new playable characters.
Gods of Asgard will launch with a dual token architecture consisting of $THOR and the in-game native currency, $ASG. Players are rewarded with $ASG tokens from winning individual game sessions or earnings accumulated from scholarship programs. Monetization strategy will come into play for owners who can immediately sell/trade their NFTs/tokens via secondary marketplace and DEX exchanges or choose to summon/sacrifice their NFTs for bigger, future payouts.
A total supply of 19,000 genesis zero NFTs will be available to mint during the month of May. This initial batch of NFTs will be categorized as the only legendary tier status within the game and provide the most earning potential when compared to their summoned counterparts or future batch releases.
