Blockchain games are THE trend of the next few years. The market has reached 3 billion dollars in 2021 and should reach 40 billion by 2025. Some games stand out for their unique characters, others for their cooperative gameplay or the theme of space conquest. Cantina Royale combines all three. This arcade and shooting game promises to be innovative in many ways, combining Play-to-Earn and Free-to-Play. Hungry for fame and fortune? From July onwards, put on your most beautiful simian avatar and set out to conquer this crazy new game.
Space primates invite themselves to elrond’s cantina!
As a young cosmonaut eager for treasure, you’ve just arrived in the heart of the Cantina. This galactic bar is a meeting place for pirates and mercenaries as strange as they are disreputable. Here you can rest your legs and drink a few barrels of beer. But will it be enough to quench your thirst for adventure? Not sure. Your mission? Increase your booty by looting all the territories and dungeons of the planet Atruna.
What’s in it for you? Abundant rewards that will cover you in glory. The best part? Access will be free of charge, and will not require a wallet. Thanks to its Free-to-Play nature, you won’t have to spend a single cent to try the game. Several modes will be accessible and will allow you to climb the ladder one by one. The best players will be able to benefit from rewards, whitelist access or referrals through another NFT owner.
In Cantina Royale you play as a monkey in search of treasures and fights. Two game modes coexist in this shooting game, PvE and PvP, alone or in team.
- In PvE mode, armed with your best NFT rifle, you will go deep into the deepest dungeons to empty them of their precious treasures. And the game is worth it! You can win weapon upgrades, rare items, real world currencies… But beware, these loot are jealously guarded by a whole bunch of robotic enemies, each one tougher than the last.
- In PvP mode, the disorganized violence of the battle royale reigns. With 50 players ready to slaughter each other, will you be the last one standing? The game also offers 1v1 modes, battle royale with 8 players, team duel from 4v4 to 8v8… In short, enough to delight the most strategic bounty hunters.
Cantina Royale, when the web3 becomes invisible
Cantina Royale is a shooting and tactical game that will take you on a journey through a multitude of graphic universes mixing rough terrains, ruins and dungeons. For those who have experience with blockchain games, you will say to me “yet another set of transactions to make via my wallet”. No way! Cantina Royale is built on Verko, an API (Application Programming Interface) layer connected to the Elrond network. As a result, all transactions on the blockchain are performed in the background, without any action from the player.
Furthermore, this technology will allow any NFT avatar to be used in the game. For example, if you’re a member of the famous and select Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC), you’ll be able to use your precious sesame in-game as early as Q3 2022. But don’t worry, if you are not one of the lucky owners of these exceptional NFTs, you don’t need to own one. On the contrary, you’ll be able to give those pretentious monkeys a run for their money!
A gaming project worthy of the elrond protocol
The game will also feature its own evolving, game-specific NFTs, the “Space Apes”. Unlike the inherently “unchanging” NFTs, these, and their weapons, are upgradeable over time. Based on the native CRT token, an NFT marketplace and lending platform will also be quickly implemented. New players will be able to test their sniper skills for free.
Cantina Royale seems ready to break down barriers with a focus on gameplay and free access. A crazy play-to-earn, simian and galactic free-to-play game with no wallet and no transactions, it will delight beginners and experienced players alike. The objective is there: to gather in the same game the traditional bandit-gamers as the experienced ape-pirates of the blockchain games. All this on a fast and cheap network, I named Elrond.
