Bloxmith Launches Raiders Rumble on the Flow Blockchain To Bring Mainstream Users To Web3
Bloxmith, a player-first Web3 gaming studio, is delighted to announce that the open beta for its game Raiders Rumble is now available for download on Apple App Store and Google Play.
Raiders Rumble is an esports mobile game that offers players a unique 1v1 squad battler experience powered by the Flow blockchain. The game features a daily rotation of tournament modes in which the top 50 per cent of the participants can win in-game items or RUMB tokens, the Raiders Rumble native tokens. The game is designed to challenge players to apply fast-paced strategic decision-making, especially when countering moves made by their opponents.
Unlike similar projects in the market, players of Raiders Rumble do not need a crypto wallet or digital collectibles (NFTs) to start playing the game. This is because the NFTs do not provide any in-battle advantages within the game. However, these NFTs have many unique features that make them highly valuable for collectors.
Commenting on the launch, Bloxmith Co-founder and CEO Wayne Lee stated:
“For our first game, we wanted to pioneer a new type of competitive mobile strategy game that would help bridge the gap between traditional and Web3 gamers. We are delighted to be working on the Flow blockchain – it solves the scalability problem for games and digital collectibles. With frictionless onboarding, social logins, and familiar payment methods, Flow is built from the ground up to make it easier for mainstream users and brands to transition from Web2 to Web3.”
A group of passionate gaming veterans created Bloxmith from Riot Games, Punpkin VR Facebook Gaming, and Blizzard Entertainment. Since its launch in 2021, the project has attracted several investors, including Infinity Ventures Crypto, Moon Holdings, Bitoro, SEA Pixel, Dapper Labs, Vayala, Moon, and Results.io.
According to Chirag Narang, the Head of Product at Flow, Raiders Rumble is an excellent example of how a mobile game can introduce users to Web3 while simultaneously appealing to a mainstream audience. Chirang adds that the game’s design and player onboarding aligns strongly with the Flow vision and goals, especially onboarding mainstream users to Web3.
Flow is a decentralized layer one blockchain that is frictionless, secure, and eco-friendly. The blockchain was created to empower developers to innovate while allowing them to push their limits to bring in the next billion to Web3.
To celebrate the launch and the esport nature of the game, the team behind the project will host three Flow-sponsored bonus tournaments. During these events, gamers will have the opportunity to win FLOW tokens. The tournaments will run from March 23, 2023, to March 31, 2023, offering gamers a total prize pool of $120,000 in FLOW.
