Aradena is one of the leading companies pioneering the Web3 gaming revolution, raising $1.5 million in funding led by Animoca Brands, and forming a co-development partnership with Blowfish Studios, an award-winning game studio for over 15 years.
And as you can expect, their first title, Aradena: Battlegrounds, is already making waves within the industry.
Deeply committed to pioneering the next generation of gaming with a gameplay-first and player-first mentality, Aradena: Battlegrounds aims to revolutionize competitive strategy gaming with a fresh take on gameplay that creates a more immersive and strategic player experience.
Featuring a blend of tactical trading card gameplay and 3D Hex battler visuals, Aradena empowers gamers with full digital ownership and the ability to trade in-game assets, along with a sustainable game economy that gives back to players.
But to bring this vision to life, Aradena needs the infrastructure, tooling, and support to scale.
Leveraging our powerful ZK-rollup technology, ImmutableX will support Aradena across all facets of their business, from providing easy Web3 onboarding to traditional gamers to improving development efficiency, and expanding awareness of the game throughout the Web3 gaming ecosystem.
Most importantly, players will be empowered with full digital ownership of all in-game assets and fully carbon-neutral NFTs, which can be traded gas-free at speeds of 9,000 transactions per second.
“Their vision is completely aligned with ours that web3 technologies can radically improve player experiences whilst gaming becomes the perfect use case for onboarding the next billion users to web3,” said Aradena CEO Liam Bacon.
“They also share our gamer-centric mindset and focus on making the onboarding process as seamless, easy, and fun as possible to get mass adoption from traditional gamers.”
After a successful Genesis collection mint, Aradena’s first card packs will go on sale in February 2023. Each pack contains Aradena Units which make up the main bulk of a player's army in Aradena: Battlegrounds, and gives owners exclusive benefits including early access to gameplay and the chance to own extremely rare 1/1 Units.
For those looking to jump into the Aradena universe, the game’s online alpha build was completed in December 2022, marking the beginning of scaled user testing and the first Aradena NFT holder play testing. Aradena plans to launch Closed Beta at the end of Q1 2023, and Open Beta at the end of Q2 2023.
