Wildlife Studios Brings Castle Crush to Avalanche
Wildlife Studios, one of the largest mobile gaming companies in the world, is bringing their first mobile game to Web3 with Avalanche!
Let’s explore Wildlife Studios, Castle Crush, and how they plan to move into Web 3 with the Avalanche network.
About Wildlife Studios
Founded in Brazil in 2011, they have become a top 10 global mobile game publisher with games like Castle Crush, War Heroes, Racing Clash Club, and more. They’ve become a dominant force in gaming.
Their portfolio of over 70 games engages billions of players around the world.
About Castle Crush
Castle Crush is a unique war strategy game. Players duel using their cards strategically to break their opponents defenses with magic, dragons, and more.
Players collect cards through gameplay and token purchases to build their deck and enable them to strategically defeat opponents based on their line ups.
Wildlife studios has recently aimed to re-invigorate Castle Crush with a slew of updates around art, gameplay, and of course web 3 integrations.
Castle Crush Boasts Impressive Stats
With over 75 million lifetime downloads and 1.4 million active players currently, Castle Crush has more users and consumer exposure than the entire Avalanche c-chain.
Introducing Web 3 with NFTs and Tokens in Game
Some notable changes include that all cards within the game now have Ascended Tier versions available as NFTs that players can use, trade, loan, and sell. Players can also earn tokens called Ascension Crystals ($ACS) by simply playing the game, ranking highly, and winning tournaments. These tokens can be used to mint or upgrade NFTs. This provides unprecedented ownership of your in-game items, and freedom unfound in the past. Wildlife Studios can now completely customize its player experience while retaining all the speed, power, decentralization, and reliability of the broader Avalanche ecosystem.
“We are thrilled to be building new games with Avalanche, unlocking features and functionalities that make Web3 gaming a big win for users, rather than a clunky addition to their experience,” said Fernando Sette, Sr. Director of Product at Wildlife Studios. “The high performance and deeply customizable nature of Avalanche has removed the obstacles to making Web3 games that excite, intrigue, and engage our players.”
We highly recommend giving the game a try to see the future of Avalanche gaming
