TL;DR

Guild of Guardians is now available for everyone to play worldwide! 

One of the world's first AAA mobile web3 gaming experiences is set to offer players an unparalleled blend of immersive storytelling, strategic gameplay, and true digital asset ownership.

Play Guild of Guardians Now

As our co-founder Robbie says:

“Everyone is still massively underestimating how big web3 gaming is going to be. With over 300+ games now building on Immutable, nearly 40% of these games will be launched in 2024." 

This means, expect many new web3 games coming your way this year! Guild of Guardians isn’t the first (or last!) AAA game in development on Immutable.

Our monthly active users also skyrocketed, with Immutable zkEVM pushing our metrics beyond all expectations.

We had a whole lot more going on this month, so without further ado, let’s dive in.

Immutable Games: Guild of Guardians goes live as top 10 in App Store

Our much-anticipated AAA mobile game Guild of Guardians went live this month. Guild of Guardians is a rogue-lite mobile RPG set in a world on the brink of destruction. 

The launch marked the first of three “acts” for Guild of Guardians as we roll out new web3 game features in the coming months - like Guilds, crafting, new pets and creatures. 

Guild of Guardians launch roadmap

Here are the launch highlights:

  • Guild of Guardians had over 1 million pre-registered players (1,070,452 as of May. ‘24) 
  • Early total installs steadily grew by almost 30K in the first 24-48 hours. 
  • Top 10 in the Android and Apple App Stores in the US, Philippines and Singapore. This was all organic growth without paid or marketing faucet turned on to ensure we didn’t crash servers. 
  • We've seen roughly a 2x increase in D1 retention from Regional Test Launch to Global Launch. We believe the rebuilt tutorial and optimized core game loop, along with web3 being enabled has impacted this.
  • We have also already seen a 10x increase in CCU (concurrent users) and more than a  20x increase of our DAU (daily active users) from our Regional Test Launches to D1 of our Global Launch last week
  • Android users make up almost 3/4 of downloads so far, with our top markets Brazil, PH, US - all changing hour by hour.
  • We’ve had massive conversion success with early 98% of our installs converted into active game players, reflecting a very smooth download process 
  • Rewards & Leaderboards also kicked off with launch - Age of the Dread campaign with 1M $GOG in rewards for the first campaign

Already scoring an impressive 4.8/5 on the app store, GoG is paving the way for web3 gaming to go mainstream!

Let’s rapid-fire through more recent launches in our ecosystem:

  • Space Nation Online, Space Nation is a AAA Space Opera Web3 MMORPG that will take you on a journey beyond the stars.
  • Medieval Empires, Medieval Empires is a mid-core multiplayer online strategy game based in a blockchain-powered historical world.
  • DESPERADO B218, solve the missing link together with agents that can battle, be developed, collected, and traded.
