Boss Fighters announced an NFT migration, moving their Rowdies collection to the Polygon network. As extra incentive to migrate, they are raffling off a VR headset for everyone who transfers their Rowdies NFTs before July 28th!

Boss Fighters has decided to migrate to the Polygon blockchain. Specifically, Open Loot who will handle the marketplace for Boss Fighters NFTs and also NFT mints (at least that seems to be what they are saying).

Boss Fighters currently only has one collection (though an alpha mint is coming soon!), the Rowdies collection. If you don’t already own a Rowdies NFT, you can pick one up on Magic Eden, though the lower priced ones have already been snatched up. The floor price for Rowdies is now at 1 SOL.

The transfer process itself is pretty simple and handled through the Boss Fighters Hub. You just need to visit your Digital Assets page, link your Open Loot account, and click the Transfer button. The migration itself involves two steps — ‘burning’ the Solana NFTs, and clicking ‘Transfer’ to have them recreated on Polygon.

Solana NFTs will no longer be playable in game. Only those on Polygon will show up in the player inventory.

Everyone who transfers a Boss Fighters NFTs receives raffle tickets based on the rarity of the NFT — anywhere from 1 to 25 tickets. At some point after the deadline there will be a raffle to giveaway a Meta Quest 2! Not only is this a $300 VR headset, but the winner will also have a chance to try out playing the game as the Boss character!

The deadline for completing the migration is is July 27th, 11:59pm EST.

What is Boss Fighters?

Boss Fighters is an asynchronous, arena combat game that pits a team of players against one other player as The Boss – a giant enemy that can smash apart buildings, shoot lasers, and even rip the giant hot dog off from the top of the restaurant and hurl it at the puny humans! The Fighter players have guns, rockets, grappling hooks, sticky bombs, and other weapon and gear options to assist in their fight battle the Boss.

Boss Fighters will be free to play. And those who have no interest in blockchain or NFTs can still play and earn in-game rewards. Boss Fighters will include digital assets and NFTs, but they will be cosmetic only and not affect gameplay. The game will run in seasons. During each season, players gain experience as they play, opening up new gear, cosmetics, and upgrades. All of these rewards are wiped between seasons, but players will have the option of spending game currency to mint certain items into an NFT. As the Boss players are the heart of the game, they will see increased rewards for participation in the game. This includes bonuses for playing on a regular basis.

The first character skin NFTs, known as the Rowdies collection, are available on the Solana network. However, the team recently announced a new partnership with Open Loot, and the NFTs can now be transferred over to Polygon.

Boss Fighters wants to bring a game show feel to their game and they encourage streaming. They want to build an eSportthat is a fun event for players and viewers. The Boss Fighters team is already envisioning ways to encourage and reward viewers and audience participation.

Boss Fighters will also include player created content in the future such as customized maps. Hopefully that will expand to include Boss creation as well!
