The trading card game Splinterlands is working with the Brave web browser to setup game tournaments, offer virtual land with a discount and launch special NFTs. The two will work together on a set of digital and physical collectibles, which Brave will sell through their web shop. The NFTs can be bought using BAT or ETH.
Details on these collectible NFTs is scarce. However, Brave compared it with their collaboration with Gala Games. In December they sold a physical collectible of the Minotaur King together with some NFTs. Perhaps the Splinterlands collaboration will also be along those lines.
Until those NFTs are available, Splinterlands and Brave have other things going on. They announced their partnership in October last year, and now there will be tournaments. Players will need BAT in their wallet to join the tournaments, and there will be $5000 worth of prizes for the winners.
In addition gamers will get a 20 percent discount when they buy land from the Splinterlands Shop using BAT as their crypto payment option. This promotion will run for 30 days, beginning on April 1st 2021.
Land discounts everywhere
Discounted lands is becoming a recurring theme in the Splinterlands community at the moment. Earlier this week Splinterlands announced a partnership with Wax. Using their own bridging technology, Splinterlands will sell their virtual land on the Wax blockchain, which also will happen at a 20 percent discount.
Keep in mind, the Wax blockchain can only be used for trading purposes. However, items acquired on the Wax blockchain can be smoothly transported back to the Hive blockchain thanks to the interoperability between the two blockchains. Ultimately the lands and other Splinterlands NFTs can only be used in the game on the Hive blockchain.
How players will use land
In the future Splinterlands will launch a land expansion. Landowners can then use the resources from their land to create and craft exclusive item and spell NFTs. These items will provide boosts to players in battle, adding a new tactical layer to the trading card game.
Once players have selected their summoner and monsters for battle, they get to see each others deck. During that time players get to play these items and spells to boost your own team or debuff the opponent.
What is Splinterlands?
Splinterlands is a trading card game that started on the Steem blockchain as Steemmonsters. However, over time the project changed names. Now gamers can play the game on desktop and mobile devices, mainly using the Hive blockchain. Thanks to an intelligent functionality, cards and tokens can also be traded on the Ethereum blockchain.
Splinterlands allows anybody to play and earn cards and other resources. Players need to create a set of cards to defeat their opponent. Cards come in different rarities with seven different stats. In addition these cards have abilities and come from seven factions. The way cards work together is dependent on all these different attributes.
Players earn cards by winning matches. They can combine cards to gain levels. After that you can sell cards on the open marketplace for cryptocurrencies, or lease them to other players. The most rare cards are wanted assets, especially when there are tournaments.
