Illuvium, a unique open-world RPG, has joined forces with renowned video game retailer GameStop. This alliance has given birth to an enticing 20,000-strong NFT collection set to debut on June 12th. With multiple developments and the partnership with GameStop, Illuvium is set to bring a new dimension to Web3 gaming. Dive into the details below.
According to the game’s developers, the “Illuvitars” NFTS are “dynamic collectable works of art, representing a specific avatar of an Illuvial with a distinct expression. Each Illuvitar carries a power rating, determined by its rarity, which helps you climb the leaderboard.”
Each “GameStop x Illuvitar D1SK NFT” will contain a unique GameStop-branded “Illuvitar,” which developers say possess “108 potential combinations based on six different Illuvials, three expressions, three background stages, and two finishes” according to their website. D1SKs contain random Illuvitars and accessories and can be traded on the Illuvi decentralized exchange. In addition, NFT holders will be entitled to early access to Illuvium’s creature collector games, Illuvium Overworld and Illuvium Arena, and other perks.
Recently, GameStop made headlines by teaming up with The Telos Foundation, the organization behind the Telos blockchain. The aim of this collaboration is to expand GameStop’s footprint in the Web3 gaming arena.
Boosting Development: Illuvium’s Recent Funding Success
Illuvium is a first-of-its-kind open-world RPG and auto-battler built on the Ethereum blockchain. The game introduces players to the world of Illuvium, a vast and varied landscape filled with mythical creatures known as Illuvials. Illuvium is more than just a game; it’s an ecosystem that integrates DeFi, NFTs, and a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).
Illuvium also recently announced they’ve secured an additional $10M funding injection from Framework Ventures. With this generous backing, they are set to turbocharge development. The journey towards Open Beta is already on course following the launch of Illuvium Overworld Private Beta 2 Launch in May.
The integration of dynamic Illuvitars and the benefits accorded to NFT holders underscore Illuvium’s dedication to delivering a unique gaming experience. Powered by the recent influx of funding from Framework Ventures and the partnership with GameStop, the team is on an accelerated path to actualising its vision fully. Gamers and blockchain enthusiasts highly anticipate the Illuvium universe, so stay tuned for more developments.
