The real-time strategy game Hash Rush will launch the sign-up for their play test on Tuesday May 4th, at 8:00 AM UTC. A maximum of 30,000 gamers will have the ability to play the completely revamped version of the strategy game this summer. A free-to-play version of the game is already available on the official website.
We already know that Hash Rush has gone through some changes. For example, the game world is no longer spherical. Instead every battle or level takes place on a flat piece of land, but all lands combine form a planet. The update will also introduce new units, environments, and buildings. Furthermore the combat has become more action-oriented, even though there’s a tactical layer as well.
The list of updates continues with an improved crafting system, and the ability to customize heroes by completing challenges. During the test period, players can temporarily trade their items across a test version of the Vorto Network. This blockchain network is set to launch its mainnet later this year.
Play-to-earn in Hash Rush
Vorto Gaming wants to use RUSH Coin not only as an in-game reward, but also as a currency for the dedicated shop. Players will be able to earn the token through in-game challenges. Vorto Gaming recently took over the reigns from VZ Games, and they want to focus on becoming more like a play-to-earn title. The developers described this future version of the game as ‘a more fine-tuned release’ of the strategy game.
Currently Hash Rush is basically a free-to-play real-time strategy game. The game takes place in the fictional Hermeian galaxy where players build and battle to be successful. Hash Rush will tap into the Vorto Network, connecting the game to a wallet service and integrated marketplace.
