The Gala Games community has voted and out of many names they’ve picked Spider Tanks as the official name for the game that was previously known as The Spider Tank Project. Despite name suggestions like Arachnobots and Battle Crawlers, the game will now be known as Spider Tanks. It looks like the community dubbed nickname sticks very well.
The Dutch game studio Gamedia is working on Spider Tanks. According to Gala Games they are getting ready for a release pretty soon. Gala Games already teased a beta play test. They will also reveal more tank NFTs. This Thursday evening there’s a beta test for those who are part of the WHALE community.
What is Spider Tanks?
Spider Tanks is a 3v3 Brawler/MOBA, which allows players to pick and choose between a number of armored units and armaments. They can then battle it out on a series of maps. Gamers can enjoy the game as a free-to-play game with play-to-earn mechanics. The game centers around skill-based competition, resource collection, and a player-driven upgrade cycle.
The NFT strategy for this game will center around tanks, weapons, buildings, and ownable land. Players can use this land to place workshops and resource mines. Upgrading tanks happens in the workshop, using resources collected through play.
Players can also improve these buildings and the land parcels by upgrading them. However, land will be limited available. This all depends on player numbers. You’ll be able to buy some NFTs from the Gala Games Store, while players can upgrade other items only through active gameplay and play-to-earn mechanics. Special unit upgrades will only be available as NFT purchases.
