As the ever-expanding Ronin Network looks to make a name for itself outside the gravitational sphere of Axie Infinity, several new games have begun to emerge on their own merit. Top of this list, comes the frantic all-guns-a-blazing NFT fest that is ‘The Machines Arena.’
Ticking all the boxes, The Machines Arena is the flagship blockchain title from industry veterans, Directive Games. Through its gamer first philosophy, players can compete in a high-octane, adrenaline-fueled top-down shooter and earn delicious NFTs for their troubles.
In its current deployment, participants can select one of 9 heroes to send into the fray, each of which will provide their own unique advantages on the battlefield. For example, Pyro features a formidable flamethrower weapon and has the ability to heal, while Bravo Zulu comes equipped with a machine gun and the passive ability to lower reload times of friendly players.
Gameplay currently consists of two high-risk, high-reward gaming modes that Directive Games has specifically designed to get the blood pumping. PvP combat will see two teams of 4 players look to pulverize each other in a frantic, no-holds-barred deathmatch. While, the single player death run will see individual players go against the clock in a bid to stay alive.
The Machines Arena Takes a Mature Approach to Blockchain Tech
Unlike many games in the sphere, The Machines Arena utilizes a take-it-or-leave it approach to blockchain technology. Essentially, allowing anyone to play the base game for free, but adding additional modes and experiences that players can unlock with NFTs.
That said however, all of the NFTs within The Machines Arena must be earned inside the game, with no primary sales events taking place. Once earned, players can mint their assets to the Ronin Network, and if they so desire, sell them on the secondary market.
The Machines Arena is currently in its closed beta phase, and those interested in taking part can sign up now via the official website. In addition, it has partnered with the Epic Game Store as its official games launcher, and will roll out a mobile version later in the year.
