All games are interconnected and share the same economy. Assets gathered from one can be used in another. Heroes trained through Team Tactics can be used in Battlegrounds. Let’s dive deeper now.
The first game of Axes Metaverse is Axes: Battleground. It’s going to be free-to-play, MMO with 64 players, all fighting for a chance to win. Battleground players will complete levels in the campaign mode.
The battle-royale mode features multiple dangerous zones and traps in the arena called Hazards. You must stay away from them while being the last man standing by taking out your opponents.
Battleground game will support crossplay. Players can use the same account on PC and Mobile.
Every Attack made within the game is non-target which means players can dodge them, accuracy is the key here. Each hero has four abilities which depends on the class.
- Attack (Simple Attack)
- Charged Attack (Powerful-stun)
- Special Ability (A unique attack)
- The Ultimate (An attack which can change the course of the game)
Battle Level, Perks & Bonuses.
During the battle, players can gain experience and Battle level. Everyone starts with equal stats.
The ways heroes earn experience:
- Picking up orbs found around the arena.
- Killing enemy heroes.
Perks are passive abilities that make your hero stronger. In order to gain the maximum potential, you must choose wisely the perks, always depending on your hero.
Additionally, you will find various bonuses in the battlefield such as:
- Experience Orbs: Offer experience.
- Health Vials: Restore a portion of heroes health.
- Artifacts: Offer unique bonuses to the hero.
Axes: Battleground Game Modes.
- Campaign PvE mode: Fight monsters and complete multiple tasks with increased difficulty as your progress versus the system. Campaign mode will be divided in stages and chapters.
- Arena PvP: Eliminate and survive in this Battle-Royale mode. A point system will determine your leaderboard position based on winning and loosing games. Rewards come in in the form of Gold for every battle and weekly based on the leaderboard position with Golds and Axes Shards.
- Gamble Arena PvP: It’s exactly the same with Arena PvP, but uses a wagering system. Players deposit some Axes Shards prior the battle and the prize pool goes to the first winners. We don’t know yet how many are going to get rewarded.
- Tournament PvP: These special tournaments will follow the same rules with Arena PvP but it will have a different temporary leaderboard. Heroes with the most points will get rewarded once the event ends.
Axes: Team Tactics
An exciting tactical crossplay gameplay with PvE (Campaign) and PvP modes fighting other squads with dozens of unique abilities and features.
Players in Team Tactics will pick a squad of four heroes from the Axes Metaverse with traits and combinations.
- Race: The race feature will give your squad bonuses like passive effects while working with synergies.
- Class: Determining the hero role in your squad and giving your whole squad bonuses, with each class providing specific benefits.
- Abilities: Each hero has different skills. Finding and placing heroes that work well together can create new and unexpected effects.
Forming your squad is as essential as combining traits. For example, choosing a magician standing in the front row will not damage and fall quickly. Picking certain heroes and putting them in the right place is an important factor in order to win.
Axes: Kingdom Wars
A strategical game mode with land ownerships and some thrilling features like forging alliances, declaring wars within other players’ land and more exciting things.
Own Land With Passive Income
Players can become landlords by owning NFT land plots that can be used to build based and provide passive earnings.
Each parcel has its specific attributes, with some providing more resources than others.
Building The Next Rome
Players can forge alliances by uniting their lands and creating whole new kingdoms. There can only exist one king who rules the coalition.
In Kingdom Wars, players and alliances can declare war against other territories for the rights to own the area. If the Kingdoms agree, they can sign a peace agreement and remain in their land.
Once a kingdom wins a war, it gains the upper hand in receiving the rights to own the land it claimed.
Heroes & Races
Every hero in Axes Metaverse can be either on-chain or off-chain. It is important to note that all off-chain heroes are provided for free.
There are 7 Races in Axes Metaverse which will be introduced wave by wave based on the story.
|Chapter 1 (Introduced)
There will be three resources helping you proceed in the game while also profiting.
- Gold: The classic of-chain resource required for most upgrading and evolving your NFTs.
- Axes Metaverse Shard: A BEP-20 token used as a valuable medium.
- Axes Metaverse Ingot (AMI): Another BEP-20 token used for Governance.
Weapons and Equipment
Weapons and armor will be distributed to heroes in order to achieve a higher potential of winning while upgrading the attributes.
There are two types of equipment: Common and Elite. Common is regular non-nft in-game assets while Elite are tokenized and can be traded between players.
Both common and Elite equipment is divided into rarities. There is:
The common equipment can be bought in-game with gold or rewarded for in-game tasks completed.
The Elite equipment is a different case. You can get it by:
- Purchasing NFT equipment during the drop.
- Purchasing NFT equipment from another player.
- Creating a new item of equipment through the crafting system.
Axes Metaverse: Lands
The Shard Hunters once discovered lands that were uninhabited and some forged into one strong land. These regions were called Neutral Lands and this is what they are capable of.
- Generating Passive Income
- Extracting Resources
By being divided into NFTs, these lands can be sold, bought or even captured by wars waged.
In detail, these lands can be used to construct these exact type of buildings:
- Mining (Extract Resources)
- Production (Process resources becoming more rare or create equipment)
- Protective (Fortify a specific land plot, becoming more difficult to capture during war)
- Landscaping (Edit your land, and increasing its attractiveness to attract more people)
