PRESS RELEASE. Heroes of Arcan aims to create a play-to-earn game that provides players with engaging, challenging peer-to-peer strategic gameplay, supported by ethical, carbon-neutral blockchain technology.
The play-to-earn revolution has catalyzed the global change in blockchain and cryptocurrency markets, with more than 750,000 individual blockchain wallets now participating in play-to-earn and NFT-based games on a daily†
With more than $4 billion USD invested in play-to-earn games by Venture Capital over the course of 2021, blockchain-based games that allow players to earn real currency by playing to earn NFT-based in-game items are becoming the new becoming standard for gaming. Play-to-earn games allow gamers to take advantage of the time and effort they spend in virtual worlds.
However, the vast majority of play-to-earn games are limited in scope and largely PvE, or player versus environment, rather than putting players in direct competition with each other. Heroes of Arcan, a new WAX-based epic fantasy strategy game, promises to create a new earning game that will allow players to compete for resources and territory in a vibrant heroic fantasy universe.
Challenging the “Play-To-Earn” Grind
The fundamental promise of play-to-earn games is to give gamers the opportunity to make a profit by playing – however, many play-to-earn games are far from accessible to new players. The current NFT-based gaming zeitgeist relies heavily on randomization when hitting or generating in-game items.
Many of the most popular play-to-earn games available today operate with significant financial hurdles that can prevent new players from joining or lead players into gameplay loops primarily focused on making a profit – not fun.
Heroes of Arcan is actively working to create a robust player-driven economy, underpinned by deep fantasy knowledge, providing players with strategic gameplay with resources and territory control with extensive community features. Rather than sending players into a sterile, stats-based world of gameplay aimed at making profitable NFTs, Heroes of Arcan leads players into a living, dynamic heroic fantasy world where they can team up and compete with each other.
Heroes of Arcan Launches Players into Play-For-Fun Heroic Fantasy
Heroes of Arcan gameplay focuses on territorial expansion and conflict between three primary factions: the militaristic Conquerers, religious and political Preachers, and the magic-minded Wiser. Each faction hails from a different continent within the lore of heroes or Arcan, offering players different benefits. Social features allow players in the same faction to interact and work together to achieve faction goals.
At launch, Heroes of Arcan will allow players to collect resources, craft tools and compete for 10,000 individual land NFTs that provide additional resource bonuses. In traditional RPG fashion, the tools used by players to collect resources can be upgraded, yielding higher production output.
In addition to resources and tools, Heroes of Arcan offers players the opportunity to collect Heroes, which offer passive bonuses. Each player has three active Hero slots that can be used simultaneously. Heroes unlock additional gameplay elements within Heroes of Arcan, such as exploration, random loot dropped into the chest, and mission functions that can be used to gain additional resources.
Rather than forcing new players entering the world of Arcan to compete with players who have established themselves, Heroes of Arcan integrates a horizontal gameplay system that allows new players to play parallel to existing players without being penalized by unfair game mechanics.
The heroes of the Arcan player-driven economy
Heroes of Arcan allows players to gain power and influence, but also provides a player-driven marketplace that enables peer-to-peer trading. Each element in the Heroes of Arcan universe is represented by an NFT on the WAX blockchain, creating a dynamic market powdered by ARCAN – the original token of Heroes of Arcan.
Rather than leaving the fate of the world of Heroes of Arcan to a small, centralized team of developers, Heroes of Arcan operates as a DAO that allows players to share their voice in the decision-making process that will guide future development. from the platform.
Transactions and transactions within the Heroes of Arcan player-to-player market are subject to a variable demand-based tax. This tax, paid in a community wallet, is used to reward Heroes of Arcan from players who wager tokens within the in-game economy and contribute to the Heroes of Arcan DAO.
Overcoming the Ethical Problems of Playing to Earn
One of the most unique elements of Heroes of Arcan is the integration of WAX blockchain technology. Play-to-earn games rely heavily on blockchain transactions to facilitate gameplay, the creation of new in-game items or elements, and player-to-player transactions.
However, today’s blockchain networks used to facilitate the operation of many play-to-earn games are very efficient. For example, the Ethereum network is highly energy inefficient and incurs significant carbon costs for every transaction.
By leveraging WAX blockchain technology, Heroes of Arcan can offer players the first completely carbon neutral, imaginative strategy game. The WAX blockchain offsets the carbon cost of transactions on the WAX network through carbon neutral NFTs, giving players an ethical way to participate in the play-to-earn revolution.
The Heroes of Arcan Token Sale
Heroes of Arcan will launch in Q3 2022, with a public token sale for early adopters scheduled for Q2 2022. The Heroes of Arcan public token sale will allow players to purchase ARCAN tokens ahead of the launch of the first iteration of the game.
9 percent of the total issuance of ARCAN token is reserved for the token sale event. Heroes of Arcan operates with a tokenomic structure that allocates 24 percent of the tokens issued to a wagering reward pool, allowing early adopters and players who wager value within the Heroes of Arcan ecosystem to generate passive staking profits.
