Gamers who are currently mining for tools, weapons, and the game currency TLM in the economical exploration game Alien Worlds, will soon also be able to find other NFT drops. Game studio Dacoco partnered with Ultra Rare Horrors to include approximately 200 special cards to the game, while landowners will be able to add their own NFTs to the existing drops.
Miners in Alien Worlds will be able to find two special Ultra Rare Horrors cards through NFT drops. The Celestial Terror is an avatar, while the Alien Bat is a minion. Mint numbers will be limited to approximately 100 each. This horror collection will go on sale on January 10th 2021 at 5PM UTC on Atomic Hub. Mining of these assets starts at any given moment before that time.
As mentioned, landowners in Alien Worlds will soon receive NFT drops as a new marketing tool. Landowners will have the ability to drop NFTs to miners on their land, and of course landowners can set the probability of finding these NFTs. These NFT drops are in addition to the existing Alien Worlds NFTs, so they don’t replace anything. In the future a similar system will be implemented for planets, which are governed by the planet’s DAO or federation.
We wrote quite an extensive guide on how to make money playing Alien Worlds. However, as activity is growing the rewards are becoming smaller. However, at the same time the value of TLM and NFTs will slowly be going up as found assets are becoming more rare.
Alien Worlds growing fast
Alien Worlds is currently one of the most popular games on the blockchain according to data from DappRadar. Splinterlands on the Hive blockchain has 6 thousand users, while Upland on EOS is just behind with 4500. Galaxy Blocks on the Thundercore blockchain is in third place, while Alien Worlds is fourth with 2450 active users per day. Even though Alien Worlds isn’t even one month live, the game already attracted more than four thousand players.
One thing that stands out in the list of most active blockchain games, is that none of them takes place on the Ethereum blockchain. Obviously activity is measured in terms of transactions, therefore not every player is considered an active player. Games that don’t require many transactions are difficult to measure, and quite frankly Axie Infinity is one of those games. Yes, Axie Infinity is still one of the most popular games on the market, competing with Upland for the second spot behind Galaxy Blocks.
What is Alien Worlds?
Don’t confuse this game with the newly launched Netflix series, because they have nothing in common. Alien Worlds is an exploration and mining game in which players can own land, use tools and weapons, customize their avatars, own rare artifacts and have minions to use in battles.
Players in this game world earn Trilium (TLM). This is a cryptocurrency token that bridges the Wax and Ethereum blockchain, allowing the economies of both chains to merge into one. Players earn TLM through mining, and can spend the tokens on betters tools and weapons.
Ultimately Alien Worlds needs to become a 3D game where avatars roam planets using tools to mine Trilium. Through terraforming, players should even be able to create events and parties on their own lands. There’s also a PVP element to the game, titled the Thunderdome.
