Illuvium announces yet another addition to their NFT stable. This one called Illuvium Beyond. Featuring Illuvitars and accessory NFTs, Illuvium Beyond is slated to launch on March 7th, 2023.

Illuvium adds another facet to their ecosystem with Illuvitars. Based on Illuvials from the games, Illuvitars function as standard Profile picture, but they will also have in-game utility across all of the Illuvium games.

Beginning with a base set of 155 Illuvials, owners will customize their individual Illuvials with various accessories. Accessories come in different types, such as eyewear and head gear. Accessories also have varying rarities.

When sale opens on March 7th, players will be able to buy D1SKs on the Illuvium marketplace, IlluviDex. D1SK purchases can be made with ETH or with sILV tokens. There will be two pack options available, both including a random Illuvitar and three accessories. Players will be able to use the accessories to customize their Illuvitar to their liking.

What is Illuvium Beyond?

Illuvium Beyond is a series of leaderboards and Collections based around Illuvitars. By equipping rarer accessories, players will be able to increase the rating of their Illuvial and compete for a place on the leaderboards.

Illuvial owners will also be able to fill in slots in various Collections with their Illuvials. The launch will include over 100 collections to complete. Collections fill automatically as players acquire more Illuvials, and Illuvials can fill spots in more than one Collection if they meet the Collections’ criteria.

Completing collections could also lead to rewards such as a special border for Illuvitars or an emote to use in the Arena.

What is Illuvium?

Illuvium is an open-world RPG adventure game built the Ethereum blockchain, and using the Immutable X layer. Players journey across a vast and varied landscape to hunt and capture creatures, or Illuvials. Together with their little tamed creatures, players are tasked with discovering what caused the cataclysm that shattered the world.

Though the core Illuvium game is an open-world adventure game that is part auto-battler and part creature collector, the Illuvium web3 space encompasses more. For example, the upcoming Illuvium Zero will be a land-based builder game. However, this game will still tie into the main game by producing resources for use in Illuvium Overworld.

Illuvium Overworld, the open-world, RPG, will feature over 100 Illuvials to capture, each with different attributes and powers. Capture them, upgrade them and combine two Iluvials to fuse a new one. Gamers earn ILV tokens through play and become part of the community through token ownership. Players can store their Illuvials on Shards, a bit like a collectible card. These cards hold the essence of an Illuvial. Players can trade shards in the marketplace or give them to a friend.

Illuvium has its own marketplace known as the IlluviDex.This will serve as a central point for trading all things Illuvium related in the future, but for now, only land trading is available. Illuvium also includes player governance in the form of a Council that goes through regular election periods.
