War Riders thinks that their first steps into the Immutable X ecosystem will happen ‘in the coming month’. Once War Riders is active on the Immutable X layer-2 solution, NFTs will be activated and the team will launch more utility for the in-game BZN token.
Like many games, War Riders is hampered by the gas fees on the Ethereum blockchain. That’s the reason why they are linking up with Immutable X. This keeps their activity still on the Ethereum blockchain, but allows NFTs and their in-game economy to exist on the layer-2 solution. That means that trading and crafting new items can happen without the need to pay for gas fees.
Yes, War Riders will introduce crafting. However, according to the most recent blog post, not all crafting is about NFTs. As a matter of fact, most crafting will just be for in-game items without any trace on the blockchain. The developers wrote that players will be able to craft War Vans with standard weapons and different stats, but crafting unique Lambo NFTs is out of the question. This way NFTs will remain valuable.
For crafting, players will need resources, components, recipes, and all those combined will become a product. Gamer can find resources in the game world. Component require a recipe to make, think about a battery, barrel or engine. Different components together can become a product, and furthermore these products can enhance the performance of an NFT vehicle. Crafting will require BZN, the in-game currency in the game.
What is War Riders?
War Riders is a vehicular massively multiplayer online action game. In this game players own their own vehicle, which they can expand by acquiring resources. They can even own an entire army of vehicles. However, the world of War Riders is harsh. The wastelands don’t pity the weak. Factions battle for control over resources, and competitive gameplay is at the core of this game.
Players use their vehicle to mine Benzene (BZN) or steal it from other players. Become the most powerful and wealthy army by expanding your garage locations, buying better weapons, and killing for influence. Offer protection to other players and earn money.
War Riders seeks to be fully transparent about the token economics. No BZN tokens will be offered for sale. Instead, the majority of the tokens will be released during the in-game mining process. The more vehicles a player owns, the more he earns. Benzene’s pool will eventually deflate. Every time a player buys something with BZN from the marketplace, 30% of tokens used in the transaction will burn. the rest will go back to the mining pool.
