The Tezos ecosystem continues to witness new games being launched and increased users in games like CoinBlast. With daily active users rising on these fronts, it makes sense to see newer games like BattleRise launch on Tezos.

For those who may not be aware, the team behind BattleRise recently secured a grant from the Tezos Foundation to support their game. In this article, we’ll examine BattleRise, including the storyline and some of my experience with the game.

What is BattleRise? #

BattleRise is a fantasy mobile role-playing game (RPG) developed by Sodigital Studios. Set in a mythical world, EOS, players can participate in turn-based combat with various game modes, such as Dungeon Run, Arena, and Adventure.

The game centers around a villain, Tiamat, the God of Death. The game aims to assemble a band of warriors and battle Tiamat’s soldiers as you embark on a quest to stop Tiamat from annihilating EOS.

One of the primary components of RPGs revolves around decision-making. Within BattleRise, this is no different, as within the Dungeon Run, the decisions you make along the way directly affect how your character’s battles turn out.

For instance, as you complete battles and progress to further levels in the Dungeon Run, you’ll encounter different shrines to inspect or have the option to select different blessings from gods. Based on your choices, they can help you complete the entire run or cause a setback.

While these choices are essential in the realm of the game, assembling the most optimal characters is also important. Each of your characters can have a champion to lead them all. There are about a dozen champions throughout the game, each possessing unique benefits, leaving it up to players to strategize on how to use their different abilities and skills to win in combat.

As you progress though the game, you can collect rare items such as artifacts and other loot. Artifacts can be found by defeating enemies in battle, while legendary and magical items can be found in the forge and continued gameplay.

How Can I Play? #

The game is only available for mobile devices via the App Store and Google Play. However, it is compatible with some MacOS devices running the latest version of MacOS, as I was able to play it on my Mac desktop.

Utilizing Tezos, BattleRise will eventually leverage the Tezos blockchain for various things, such as trading in-game items like artifacts, weapons, and more. While these features have yet to be incorporated, the team behind BattleRise spoke on X about what the collaboration with Tezos means for players.

This collaboration with Tezos opens up a whole new world of possibilities for BattleRise.

We are thrilled to introduce the power of blockchain technology to our beloved kingdom. With Tezos by our side, we will be able to enhance the gaming experience like never before.

So, what does this mean for you, our dedicated Risers? It means that you can expect a whole new level of immersion and interactivity within the BattleRise universe. Tezos will empower us to create a gaming ecosystem where you can truly own and trade in-game assets, participate in unique events, and even earn rewards through skillful gameplay. By joining forces with Tezos, BattleRise is taking a giant leap into the future of gaming. We are committed to delivering an unparalleled gaming experience that combines the elements of Web3 technology with the thrilling gameplay you already know and love.

While Tezos is not utilized in the game’s present state, the benefits from trading in-game items and bringing ownership to those items must be balanced. Forward-thinking game developers like Sodigital Studios are embracing this concept as the gaming landscape evolves.

I had much fun playing this game and still trying to grow my characters and champions. Make sure to give the game a go, and visit the Discord community if you have any questions! I can’t wait to see what new features they add and when they incorporate the Tezos blockchain into this fascinating game.
