Black Tower Studios X Immutable Join Forces for Web3 RPG Arkbound
The creator of Archangel is introducing 'Arkbound,' its free-to-play Japanese RPG, to the Immutable ecosystem.
Black Tower Studios, a renowned Japanese game developer, is making waves in crypto gaming. Known for popular hits like Archangel and Ace Combat 7, the studio is now teaming up with Immutable. Their goal? To launch Arkbound, a groundbreaking Web3 RPG. This marks the studio's deeper venture into Web3, expanding its offering since its inception in 2012.
Backed by Animoca Brands, Arkbound is an exciting free-to-play fantasy RPG for PC gamers. It's set in the enchanting world of Elysia and integrates in-game NFTs, such as Anima Prism and Ark Stones, into its core gameplay. Players can engage in battles, treasure hunts, and take on various character classes for a unique adventure. Jingdi Yang, the Producer at Black Tower, emphasizes their aim to fuse the RPG's beloved aspects with blockchain tech.
"Our mission is to combine the beloved elements of RPG with the innovative power of Web3 technology to take blockchain gaming to the next level."
The game's artistic design is a highlight. It features traditional Japanese elements and leverages the Unreal Engine for a visually stunning experience. This move into Web3 is a significant step for Black Tower as it aligns with the evolving nature of the industry.
Meanwhile, Immutable is redefining crypto gaming with its focus on blockchain tech and innovation. They've recently announced three new games – GensoKishi Online, Cursed Stone, and Sailwars – all built on Immutable zkEVM.
Arkbound stands as a symbol of evolution in the JRPG scene. This partnership between Black Tower and Immutable is merging traditional gameplay with blockchain tech. The game promises a breathtaking experience with its NFT integration, as Arkbound invites players to a brand-new chapter in the world of RPGs.
