Top NFT Collections and Games this Week – July 9

top play-to-earn games

Things are looking good for web3 games this week. And though the Azuki collections took a tumble, the overall NFT markets remain relatively stable. Let’s take a look at which games and NFT collections are on top of the charts this week!

More web3 adoption from web2 gaming as Ubisoft announces a blockchain game in development on the Oasys chain called Champions Tactics. We also have another new game announcement from Endless Clouds called Capsule Heroes. We don’t know much about either game, but having a company as large and well know as Ubisoft in the space can potentially bring some additional players to the space.

The Azuki collection took a hit with complaints about their Elementals mint (mainly about lack of time to mint and similarities to the original Azuki collection), but their numbers remain strong. There was to be some expected pullback from the FOMO in the previous week.

In other gaming news we have an upcoming alpha land sale from Ember Sword, a new Chaos Constructed game mode in Gods Unchained, and a major shakeup in Skyweaver as they add Hero Abilities to their game.

Read on for a look at the most active web3 games and NFT projects for the week. And be sure to keep an eye on our website and Twitter feed for the latest developments in the web3 gaming space!

The Azuki frenzy died down quite a bit this week. And despite the decreased trading volume, the team seems to be recovering from all the negative responses to their Elementals release. And even though the Bored Apes dropped to a two year low in floor price, they are more than happy to claim their top spot on these charts.

Gods Unchained continues to hold a spot with another week of nearly $5 million worth of trades.
