After many months of development Hash Rush has finally launched its open beta. This new version of the game offers all kinds of improvements as well as features like for example a crafting system and an improved combat system. In addition the now offers a true play-to-earn game mechanic with its own Rush Coin.
During the Hash Rush beta players can earn Rush Coins by completing in-game quests and challenges. Rush Coin (RUSH) is an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain. Gamers can use the token to buy in-game currencies and items. Players can also buy RUSH from the store.
The developers want to have a lot of control over the Rush Coin in the beginning. But they are planning to ultimately give control to the community. The supply is limited, so therefore there will be a point in time that Rush can no longer be bought from the store.
The biggest addition to the game according to the developers is the crafting system. Players will need to explore the planet for crafting resources. The developers have also made considerable changes to the game. For example, instead of using crystals now Hash Rush is introducing Galaxy Points. This is the new way the leaderboard is being determined.
As players gain more Galaxy Points, they will improve their Colony Level. This can be compared to a skill level, starting at novice and ending at legendary. The drop rate of rarer items increases when players have a higher Colony Level. However, on each planet a player will start at the novice level.
