Game studio Immutable has revealed that their Trial of the Gods expansion for Gods Unchained will launch next week on September 10th. This will introduce new gameplay mechanics and a new set of cards to the blockchain-powered trading card game. Trial of the Gods is the first expansion for the card game that launched into open beta in July 2019.
Together with the Trial of the Gods expansion, Immutable will sell new cards for Gods Unchained. The game studio will sell packs of cards for a set price. Pricing of these packs depends on the potential rarity of the cards inside. Immutable will give the one-of-a-kind card Citadel of the Gods away in a raffle as part of their promotion. Players can earn raffle tickets by buying card packs.
In December 2019 a mythic card called Atlas sold for 210 ETH on a peer-to-peer marketplace, which equaled 31 thousand dollars at that time. The first mythic ever sold, was Hyperion. This card sold for 143 ETH in 2018, which was over 60 thousand dollars at the time of the auction. Alongside Tethys and Prometheus, Hyperion never switched hands.
They also gave Tethys away in a raffle. However, the winner never came forward. The developers sent the card to the winner’s address, but nobody every publicly claimed it. In addition the Ethereum address hasn’t been active ever since. However, Immutable claims this is a side effect of true ownership. Some items may never be used or are lost forever.
What is Gods Unchained?
Gods Unchained is a collectible card game built on the Ethereum blockchain. The blockchain stores all ownership of the cards, giving players full ownership over their own set of cards. Players earn digital cards by playing the game. When they have two identical cards they’ll be able to mint these into one blockchain-based card. We call these cards non-fungible tokens, and the owners can trade, sell, lend, borrow, or use them in the game itself.
Future game mechanics will allow users to create limited edition cards from older cards, making existing cards more rare. In addition Gods Unchained can be enjoyed free-to-play, while players are able to earn cards by being active players. True play-to-earn mechanics there!
