Blockchain gaming studio Illuvium has launched Illuvium: Overworld Beta 2. This highly anticipated update brings an array of new features, mechanics, and Illuvials to the game, promising players an even more immersive and engaging gaming experience.
Illuvium has made a name for itself by combining the thrill of collecting, battling, and exploring with the advantages of decentralized finance and NFTs. The studio offers a unique and captivating gaming experience that enables players to discover and collect Illuvials, participate in strategic battles, and become part of a thriving gaming community.
The Overworld Beta 2 update will introduce a host of innovative features, including Morphopods, the Overload mechanic, and new movement mechanics like Slide and Glide, the gaming studio mentioned in a press release shared with AlexaBlockchain.
Additionally, players can expect new environment mechanics such as Lilypad and Bubble. Explorers will have the opportunity to venture into fresh playable Overworld regions and battle maps, including Abyssal Basin and Brightland Steppes.
Aside from gameplay enhancements, Overworld Beta 2 will introduce over 30 new Illuvial characters, expanding players’ possibilities to collect and evolve their Illuvial roster.
The number of beta participants for Illuvium: Overworld Beta 2 will increase from 30,000 to 75,000 with this update, granting a greater number of players the chance to experience the game’s enhanced features and improvements. However, even with this expansion, the game is unable to accommodate all 2 million registered beta users.
In light of recent developments in the industry, where competing crypto game Axie Infinity was approved on the iOS store, Illuvium plans to list its own mobile game, Illuvium: Zero, later this year. This move represents a significant leap forward for crypto games, as it aims to increase accessibility and introduce the exciting world of blockchain gaming to mass audiences.
Looking ahead, Illuvium has set its sights on launching the open beta for all three games – Illuvium: Zero, Illuvium: Arena, and Illuvium: Overworld – by the end of this year, further expanding its offerings to players.
Once the open beta is live, players will have the opportunity to collect, buy, and sell NFTs, potentially earning from the game. The immense interest in the gaming universe is evident with nearly 2 million people already registered for the beta.
Illuvium continues to push the boundaries of blockchain gaming, delivering captivating experiences and embracing the potential of NFTs and decentralized finance. With each update and expansion, the studio brings us closer to a future where blockchain games are accessible to all, revolutionizing the gaming industry and captivating players around the world.
