Collectible card game Crystals of Fate will be part of the Enjin ecosystem. The card game has fast-paced gameplay and uses a live combat system. Crystals of Fate is in development for a release on PC, Android and iOS and supports cross-platform battles.
Battles in Crystals of Fate happens in phases. During the initial phase players put down their cards on the table within the time limit. Because this happens live, players can anticipate or react to the choices of their opponent.
There are different classes, ranging from assassins to necromancers and from warrior to support. Each of these heroes comes with their unique set of cards. Players need to obtain a deck of 25 cards before they are able to go into battle.
Crystals of Fate will feature a singleplayer campaign, 1v1 and 2v2 ranked and unranked matches, arena battles, challenges, and a practise mode. Players can also form guilds for more in-depth team-based gameplay. The developers emphasize that Crystals of Fate is strictly free-to-play and definitely not pay-to-win.
The team of Skymarch Entertainment haven’t revealed any details about the integration of interoperable non-fungible tokens. However, they did state that characters from Crystals of Fate are also playable in other titles from the same publisher, for example Zeal and The Galaxy of Lemuria. Very likely this is the way Crystals of Fate taps into the Enjin multiverse.
Enjin working on Efinity
Enjin is a platform that uses the Ethereum blockchain. Many games within the Enjin ecosystem, like for example The Six Dragons and Lost Relics, offer a sense of multiverse. Players can use certain items in multiple games, like for example the most recent Binance-sponsored Halloween token.
However, the gas problems within the Ethereum ecosystem also hurt Enjin. Therefore the company is now working on a scaling solution called Efinity. This should allow developers and gamers within the ecosystem to send items and trade assets without the need for gas fees. In addition Efinity will speed up transactions and allow more transactions at the same time.
Enjin wants to create a metaverse in which game items can be used in several games. They use their standardized ERC-1155 protocol for that, and that’s how Wavelings is part of the Enjin multiverse. Other games like for example Cede, War of Ants, The Six Dragons, Lost Relics, Bitcoin Hodler and Forest Knight are in different states of development.
This summer Enjin organized an event in which players could earn a cyborg robot. However, players would need to reach objectives in multiple games to ultimately earn themselves the robot. Eight different games joined the quest, which can be seen as a form of interoperability. The freebie can’t be obtained anymore, an therefore the cheapest robot on the marketplace now costs 200 ENJ or 25 dollars.
