From Stratego to Settlers of Catan, strategy-based war games have long served as a global pastime, bringing together family and friends of all ages.
Now Titans of War is looking to bring this magic to the blockchain.
Titans of War is a strategic play-to-own blockchain-based trading card game based on historical events. Players can build their decks with cards of various leaders like Sun Tzu and Kublai Khan, as well as geographical regions. Decks also include military units, tactics, and inventions like Chinese silk and Ming pottery to give the troops exactly what they need in battle.
Designed to empower players with full digital ownership over their in-game assets, each individual card is a customizable NFT, carrying information such as the card art, ownership, name, ID, and specific traits.
But unlike other trading card games, Titans of War places a strong emphasis on esports competition.
As an incentive for successful performance, players can earn the Titans of War utility token, $TITANS, within innovative staking leagues, betting tournaments, and ‘Paid Top Ladder’ leaderboards. These tokens can then be used to purchase more packs or exchanged for other cryptocurrencies.
Using our powerful ZK-rollup technology, ImmutableX will enable the gas-free minting of all Titans of War digital assets as fully-carbon neutral NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain. All assets will also be featured across all ImmutableX integrated marketplaces like GameStop Marketplace and Rarible, adding further liquidity and awareness to the Titans of War ecosystem.
According to CEO Maximilliam Johnson, the team is most excited about ImmutableX’s custodial wallet and fiat on-ramp products, which will allow for more seamless gamer onboarding.
“We are excited to announce our partnership with ImmutableX, which will enable us to harness the power of blockchain technology to create new and innovative gaming experiences. With ImmutableX, we can build a more secure, transparent, and fair gaming ecosystem that benefits players and developers alike,” he said. “We can take gaming to the next level and unlock new opportunities for the industry.”
Perhaps the most impressive thing about Titans of War is its ability to bootstrap its way through development. Unlike many games that take on significant amounts of external funding, Titans of War has remained primarily self-funded, only raising a small $150,000 round from angel investors like CryptoBirb and Conor Kenny. Much of this can be attributed to the team’s extensive knowledge of blockchain technology and trading card strategy games, specifically Magic: The Gathering.
While still early in development, the $TITANS token and NFT mints are slated to launch in early 2023. The beta and full game are expected to follow by year’s end.
