The medieval period is one of the most fascinating times in history. It’s also the backbone of the ever-popular fantasy gaming genre, delighting people with lore of lords, ladies, castles, and chivalry, where heroes set forth on adventures in search of honor and glory.
Now, Medieval Empires is looking to bring this same fantastical magic to the blockchain.
Medieval Empires is a mid-core multiplayer online strategy game where players are thrust into the role of a medieval war hero as he fights his way into legend. Along the journey, players can make their mark on the game’s medieval world by building out their starting village into a prosperous empire. Featuring internationally acclaimed actor, Engin Altan Düzyatan as Kayi Tribe leader Ertuğrul Gazi, the game aims to provide a state-of-the-art Web 3.0 experience to the fans of the character/actor, gamers as well as blockchain and crypto enthusiasts.
At the heart of Medieval Empires’ mechanics is its seamless integration of blockchain technology, delivering players a true “play and own,” experience. Players can purchase and own all in-game assets, from their character’s gear to the land they traverse to be used across daily missions, general tasks, and story missions.
Given the game’s planned PvE setting, it will be up to players to build their own fortifications against in-game foes—and each other. Like most contemporary online games, the game will also ship with a PvP mode, offering players the chance to earn glory through competition.
To bring Medieval Empires’ ambitious visions to life it needs the proper infrastructure to scale.
By leveraging Immutable zkEVM, an EVM-compatible zk-rollup technology, the Medieval Empires development team can craft their own set of custom smart contracts for in-game assets. In turn, this will drive advanced gameplay mechanics and tokenomics, and a cheaper, secure, and frictionless trading experience.
This partnership signifies an important moment for Immutable as they expand their presence in the MENA region, unlocking new market opportunities. With Medieval Empires' expertise in the Turkish market and their shared vision for creating engaging experiences, both companies are poised to benefit from the growing demand for web3 gaming in MENA.
“We’re excited to announce our partnership with Medieval Empires, one of our early MENA-focused games. Partnering with them is a great opportunity for us, not only because they are our first partner in the region, but also because we are eager to do more in the MENA market,” said Dave Shin, Head of Business Development, EMEA and Asia, “Medieval Empires has been offering us valuable guidance in understanding the MENA region and its gaming community. We believe that this partnership will help us tap into those markets while creating enjoyable experiences for players.”
“Medieval Empires is thrilled to partner with Immutable, a leader in web3 game adoption. Our goal is to create an enjoyable blockchain game for all gamers,” said Assad Dar, co-founder and Chief Visionary Officer of Medieval Empires. “Through our collaboration with Immutable, we'll enhance game production, delivering an unparalleled experience to our community.”
Although the game is still early in development, the team has had no issue drumming up interest. Medieval Empires has raised over $7 million while assembling a loyal army of supporters with nearly 175,000 followers across Twitter, Instagram, Telegram and Discord. Prior to the game’s launch, the Medieval Empires development team made in-game land available for purchase on OpenSea, which boasts a total volume of 95 ETH.
