Time Raiders, the time-travel play-and-earn game project created by Utopian Game Labs, partners with Polygon Studios, the NFT, gaming, and Metaverse arm of Polygon. Built on the Polygon blockchain, Time Raiders offers players captivating shoot-and-loot gameplay enhanced by rewards in NFTs and the game’s native coin, $XPND.
The Polygon Studios cooperation paves the way for the game’s planned open beta launch, which will allow a large gaming community to participate in the journey
Blockchain-based play-to-earn games offer a compelling use case for NFTs and digital assets, allowing regular people to make money from their hobbies. Early newcomers to the NFT gaming environment, on the other hand, frequently experience disappointing gameplay and high entry barriers for new users. This void allows developers of gameplay-focused blockchain projects to step in and offer play-and-earn experiences rather than play-to-earn games.
Time Raiders is a play-and-earn game project that emphasizes the “play” part above all else
Historical Raiders sends players on a high-octane scavenger search across several time periods and historic locations, with a diverse collection of player-versus-environment and player-versus-player game modes. To ensure maximum accessibility, the game does not require an initial NFT purchase or a crypto wallet to play.
Polygon Studios’ relationship with Time Raiders offers a community platform for the game ahead of its open beta launch. It will also assist Utopian Game Labs, which previously secured an early-stage financing for the project from Polygon Studios, in adding additional features and levels to the project in future updates.
“We believe blockchain gaming will be one of the primary growth pillars in Web3 over the coming years, and we expect it to rival mainstream gaming internationally,” says Steven Bryson-Haynes, Polygon’s VP and Head of Business Development. “The Play-to-Earn space has experienced substantial growth, and we’re excited to see how it develops as higher-quality games with an emphasis on gameplay, fun, and incentives continue to hit the market.” This is why we’re so happy to collaborate with Utopian Game Labs as they pioneer the Play & Earn market with ‘Time Raiders,’ their time travel NFT treasure hunt game.”
