The Raiders Rumble open beta is now available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store through Bloxmith, a newly-developed Web3 gaming studio.
In Raiders Rumble, players must apply strategic decision-making to counter opponents’ moves. It is an esports game for a wide range of users, featuring a daily rotation of tournament modes in which the top 50% of players can win items or RUMB tokens, Raiders Rumble’s native currency.
To begin playing the game, players do not need to keep a digital currency wallet or non-fungible tokens (NFTs), as stated in the announcement. NFTs in Raiders Rumble do not provide a significant in-battle advantage in order to maintain competitive integrity. They do, however, have distinguishing characteristics that can make them valuable to collectors.
Bloxmith Co-founder and CEO Wayne Lee said that for their debut game, they aimed to create a special kind of competitive mobile strategy game that could successfully bridge the gap between gamers who are more traditional and Web3 gamers.
Lee also stated that they are excited to work on the Flow blockchain. He clarified how it successfully addresses the scalability issue for games and NFTs. Lee added that with fast onboarding, social logins, and widely accepted payment methods, Flow is explicitly designed to make the transition from Web2 to Web3 easier for mainstream users and major brands.
Raiders Rumble will host bonus tournaments sponsored by Flow
Due to the anticipated roll-out and the game’s esports focus, Raiders Rumble will hold three Flow-sponsored bonus events.
As stated in the announcement, strategy gamers will be able to obtain FLOW tokens, with a total prize pool of $120,000 in FLOW for the most innovative strategy gamers.
These Flow-sponsored tournaments, as confirmed in the update, will take place between March 23 and March 31. The Raiders Rumble website has more information on the events.
Raiders Rumble is an example of a mobile game that can appeal to a mass user base while simultaneously introducing them to the actual capability of Web3 gaming, which is being powered by Flow, according to Chirag Narang, head of product at Flow.
Narang continued, “Flow’s aims for their ecosystem around gaming and onboarding mainstream people to the Web3 environment coincide nicely with the approach to game design and player onboarding taken by the Bloxmith team.
