Going beyond the P2E, Summoners Arena dares to endow a Play-Own-Earn game that allows users not only to create profit but also to enjoy the intrinsic value that the game has to offer. In this way, the game would be able to fulfill the mission of creating a mythical world to sustain a loyal base of supporters that will stay for the gripping lores and immaculate graphics quality as well as fostering an ecosystem where all users could enjoy the game and earn a passive income at the same time.
"Summoners Arena is on the frontier of blockchain-based gaming. They've produced fantastic artwork, rich lore, and highly enjoyable game mechanics. By prioritizing building an amazing game first and layering in crypto economics second, their play-own-earn model is setting a strong example for other projects in the space, learning lessons from early attempts at the play-to-earn model." - Paul Veradittakit, Partner at Pantera Capital.
We had just released our first Genesis Hero NFTs which was a drop of 20,000 genesis heroes. The Triple IGO in collaboration with Binance NFT and GuildFi opened to the early triumph with a big participation number and the collection was sold out in just a short period of time. Summoners Arena Genesis Hero NFTs are yet available for trading on the secondary market. If you do not own one yet, just check the most powerful souls and spirits of Summonia kingdom out today!
With a strong seed round as a head start, we are confident about what the future is holding for Summoners Arena - a promising plan to innovatively develop the game that truly delivers an exceptional experience and compelling game quality to the community. We will soon launch the free-to-play version of the game as our next step.
The free-to-play version offers the opportunity for everyone to experience most of the features that will later on be released in the official launch. Other than that, the team will continue to work hard to bring an original play-own-earn experience towards a diverse user base as well as build a stable and sustainable community for years to come.
