NFT for free
The play-to-earn games market that pays its players for the activities they develop in the game is advancing thanks to the popularization of the model with Axie Infinity (AXS) which saw its in-game item marketplace exceed $1 billion in transactions.
Axie’s success has motivated developers to launch other games that pay their players in cryptocurrencies, one of them is Illuvium qwhich, unlike Axie, doesn’t need an initial investment in the purchase of characters to enter the game, and, in addition, pays reward, for gameplay, in Ethereum (ETH).
The game has different interaction modes like Adventure Mode in which you can fight the machine and collect Illuvials. Important to note that the Illuvial capture rate will decrease with each Illuvial collected.
In Arena mode (not yet available) players will be able to compete against each other in two types of arena, the Leaderboard in which experience levels will be standardized and each Illuvial will receive the same number of points making the battle based on skills and the Leviathan arena in which players will have no restrictions on experience levels and point cost associated with Illuvials.
Viewers will also be able to place bets on the results of those games.
In addition, throughout the game each Illuvial accumulates energy throughout battles and with that can increase the damage dealt to the opponent. When his energy level reaches a certain limit, he will release a powerful supreme ability that can alter the game outcome.
