The metaverse Ascenders, an open-world, science-fantasy role-playing game built on the Avalanche blockchain, made a big announcement during the Avalanche Summit.
Metaverse Ascenders announces $1 milion prize
Jackson Poon, CEO of Legendary Foundry Limited, announced the release of the first version of the game that will be free-to-play and will have a prize pool of up to $1 million paid in AGC tokens.
Ascenders is an open world story-based game with a decentralized economy. Additionally, the game features a dual token economy and player-created NFTs.
The Ascenders ecosystem consists of numerous competition and trade opportunities. Players can choose from several roles to win and specialize in them with their challenges and resources.
In Ascender, you can explore new dungeons, discover resources, build land, and engage in combat. The game is based on a player-driven economy. That is, players have full control over the supply and demand of resources within the game.
The game’s story takes the player through two worlds: Overworld and Dungeons.
Overworld contains different terrains with their characteristics, different challenges, resources and enemies. Players can explore the Overworld for resources that can be used to mint NFT items.
Meanwhile, in Dungeons, areas serve as periodic tournaments that allow players to compete on PvEvP leaderboards for rare and valuable resources. Players can further explore the deep dungeons to get rewards for minting NFT items.
The dungeons are full of enemies and need to be cleared before the community starts building.
Ascenders economy is divided into economic routes, each route has its characteristics such as gameplay, resources and rewards.
- Explorer lane: The resources players collect can only be found in the Overworld. This route is for players who like to constantly farm, collect and progress.
- Fighter Lane: Competitive players who like to be at the top of the leaderboard can choose this lane. They can combat, raid dungeons, seek out rare resources, and chase leaderboards.
- Builder lane: Players who like to own land, trade in the market and build their land can choose this lane. Players can mint NFT items like swords and armor to defend the land and increase resources.
The two main Ascenders tokens are the Ascenders Governance Council (AGC) governance token and the Glow Gems (GG) coin.
AGC is the main governance token in the game and is the engine that powers the Ascenders ecosystem. Thus, players use it to participate in important gameplay and direction decisions through the Ascenders Decentralized Autonomous Organization (ADAO), a decentralized organization that governs aspects of game operations and future development.
Lastly, GG is a utility token used for economic activities like building construction, crafting upgrades, minting items, and others. GG is also used to reward player involvement with game history, tournaments, quests and world events.
