A new phase of the Iluvium beta is set to arrive on November 28th, bringing with it the first PvP content for this auto-battler game, and potentially, prizes and rewards as well!
A new era arrives in the Illuvium Arena as phase 3 of their beta launches on November 28th. This phase of the Illuvium beta introduces Arena PvP, letting players create their teams from all the available Illuvials and items, and pit them against other players in the Arena, fighting until only one team remains standing!
For anyone who wants to get a headstart on developing their battle strategy, Illuvium offers a special Team Builder page. This page includes game guides and the ability to play around with team creation. With more than 250 Illuvials, 80 Augments, 400 Weapons, and 50 Suits to choose from, there are plenty of opportunities to try different setups! The Team Builder also provides a couple of starter setups to help you get started.
This release also coincides with Illuvium’s addition to the Epic Games store. The Epic Games platform is quickly becoming the Steam replacement for web3 gaming and allows players to easily download and update their games from one central location. This will also open the game up to many more players as anyone can now download and try out the new beta!
The Illuvium team has hinted that there may be prizes and rewards for players during this PvP beta, but they have not yet provided any details on that.
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 tamed Illuvials, 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 much more. This includes Illuvium Zero, a land-based builder game and Iluvium Beyond, a PFP collecting and editing game. All of the various Illuvium projects will interconnect at some point in the future.
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. 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 serves as a central point for trading all things Illuvium related. Illuvium also includes player governance in the form of a Council that goes through regular election periods.
