So I've been seeing a lot about this new game on the Ethereum Blockchain called Illuvium and I thought It would be a good idea to check it out and what I found was a incredible looking game that has a lot of promise, here's what I found out about the game.
What is Illuvium?
Illuvium is a open-world fantasy RPG adventure NFT game that is built on the Ethereum Blockchain network that uses Immutable X Platform. From looking at countless websites the game looks to be a like Axie Infinity, where you fight and capture monsters to fight on your team and these monsters are the NFT's of the game.
There are 100+ Monsters i the game which are called Illuvials and they have different abilities, classes and affinities.
You can also fuse them and upgrade them. You can take these Illuvials that you capture and can fight them in autobattle arena's and earn ILV ( more on that later) and collectibles or you can do adventure mode.
What is ILV and sILV?
The Illuvium game has two ERC-20 cryptocurrencies called ILV (Illuvium) and sILV that help to power the game. The ILV token allows holders to partake in yield farming, staking and governance of the Illuvium DAO. Those who wish to stake their tokens have the option to receive rewards in either ILV or sILV. but if holders choose to receive their ILV instead, the rewards have a lock-up period of one year. Another big factor with the game is the usage of zero gas fees, Illuvium uses a layer-2 scaling solution known as Immutable X. Immutable X was created specifically to speed up transactions for blockchain-based marketplaces, games and applications on Ethereum.
When is the Game Coming Out?
The game is supposed to come out with the private beta in late 2021 to early 2022 , and followed by open beta a little while after. There will also be a mobile game that will come out late 2022.
So it looks good, it sounds good and smells good but will it be good? I've been in the crypto scene for almost half a year now and in my experience with most blockchain games you never know until you try it out. I'm hoping of getting into the Private Beta to try the game out, i have high hopes for the game and i think we all need to keep an eye out for Illuvium because it could be the next big game.
