Bloxmith, the newly-developed Web3 gaming studio, has announced that the open beta for Raiders Rumble, its 1v1 squad battler game for mobile on the Flow blockchain, is now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.
Raiders Rumble expects players to apply strategic decision-making in countering opponents’ moves. Implemented as an esports game for a wide range of users, it features a daily rotation of tournament modes where the top 50% of in-game participants can win various items or RUMB tokens, Raiders Rumble’s native token.
As noted in the announcement, players need not keep a digital currency wallet or non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to start playing the game. To maintain competitive integrity, NFTs in Raiders Rumble don’t offer any significant in-battle advantage. However, they have unique features that can make them valued by collectors.
Bloxmith Co-founder and CEO Wayne Lee stated that for their very first game, they wanted to work on a unique type of competitive mobile strategy game that would effectively bridge the gap between more traditional and Web3 gamers,
Lee also mentioned they’re pleased to work on the Flow blockchain. He explained that it effectively solves the scalability problem for games and NFTs. Lee added that with fast onboarding, social logins, and widely-adopted payment methods, Flow is explicitly developed to ease mainstream users and major brands to move from Web2 to Web3.
Raiders Rumble will host three Flow-sponsored bonus tournaments as part of the planned roll-out and esports-focused nature of the game.
As mentioned in the announcement, strategy gamers will have the chance to acquire FLOW tokens, with a prize pool totaling $120,000 in FLOW for the most innovative strategy gamers.
As confirmed in the update, these Flow-sponsored tournaments will be held between Mar. 23 and 31. Details about the events can be found on the Raiders Rumble website here.
Chirag Narang, head of product at Flow, said that Raiders Rumble is an example of a mobile game that can appeal to a mainstream user base while also introducing them to the true power of Web3 gaming that’s being powered by Flow,
Narang added that the Bloxmith team’s approach to game design and player onboarding aligns perfectly with Flow’s goals for their ecosystem around gaming and onboarding mainstream users to the Web3 ecosystem.
