Even though they aren’t ready to release their trading card game Gods Unchained on mobile devices, Immutable has communicated that they are making ‘good progress’. The team is working on an iOS and Android version of the game, and really needs to finetune the touchscreen interface.
Normally gamers play Gods Unchained on a computer screen using a mouse. Changing a desktop interface to a smooth mobile user experience can be a challenge. Using fingers to control a small screen works completely different from a mouse cursor on a big screen. Right now the team is working on the Sanctum, which is an in-game feature that allows players to acquire extra cards during a battle. We don’t know yet when Gods Unchained will arrive for mobile devices.
Game designer Chris Clay revealed the progress on the mobile version in their latest development update. He also stated that cards from the Genesis series will soon be minted onto Immutable X, the layer-2 solution for the Ethereum network. This will allow gamers to trade their cards without paying gas fees. In addition the Mythic Draw will soon take place, which will make one player the owner of the Citadel of the Gods.
Future Gods Unchained expansions
According to Clay the team is already working on multiple expansions for Gods Unchained. The next expansion doesn’t have a name yet, or at least Clay doesn’t want to reveal it yet. As a teaser he showed a card called the Arch of Amenmose, suggesting Egyptian themes, zombies, the undead and perhaps gameplay focused on structures. Who knows?
Gods Unchained already has ties with Egyptian mythology. Lady Malissus is the goddess of death in the game, and she has chosen Neferu as her champion. Furthermore the game features cards like Reborn Pharaoh, Tomb Torchbearer, Anhotep the Embalmer, Tutanhkhamun and Horus.
Gods Unchained explained
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, 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!
