Gala Games has sold the second out of five citadels for their upcoming massively multiplayer online role playing game Mirandus, and this would be a new record sale. Details about the sale haven’t been made public yet, but company CEO Eric Schiermeyer mentioned earlier that the second citadel would be twice the price of the first one, so that would be 1.6 million dollars.
At the time of writing Gala Games hasn’t made an announcement yet, and nobody has claimed the purchase. The wallet connected to the purchase only contains the Citadel of the Stars and a reward from Gala Games’ farming game Town Star.
The transfer didn’t happen through a sales platform, suggesting that this was an over-the-counter business deal. Which still leaves the question… who will be sitting on the throne of the Citadel of the Stars? And did they actually pay 1.6 million dollars? This purchase would automatically set the price for the third citadel to 3.2 million dollars.
Mirandus hype growing
Interest in Mirandus has been increasing since Gala Games partnered with Polyient Games and sold their first citadel for 800 thousand dollars. The deeds for the cheapest land parcels, Homesteads and Outposts, have already sold out. Also the Farming Hamlet (0.867 ETH) and the Ranching Hamlet (1.734 ETH) have all been acquired by players and investors. Currently the cheapest settlements players can acquire through the official marketplace are Village of the Farmer and the Village of the Baron. The deeds to these settlement cost 17.342 ETH or 22.3 thousand dollars.
Why do you want these deeds?
Owning the deeds to a town or shop, allow you to deploy these in the world of Mirandus. Players get to decide where to place a Homestead or a Village. After that other players can compete to have their business, maybe a blacksmith or a bakery, placed in the town. Having a keep or some other base, for example close to a dungeon entrance, will provide all kinds of opportunities for trade.
When Mirandus launches there will be five citadels. These give the owner the right to create and lead their own faction, charge taxes on trade and so on. Owning a piece of land provides a safe haven for other players, and potentially a way to make money. Together with the developers the owners of these citadels can design their own layout for their city.
However, it’s also good to temper hype a little bit. Gala Games hasn’t provided any gameplay footage yet. The first playable version of Mirandus will arrive by the end of this year, and that will probably be a very limited test version. We expect Mirandus to reach its fruition not earlier than 2022, as Gala Games still has a lot of work to do on creating gameplay and implementing economical layers for landowners and adventurers alike.
