EF Defense, the Tower Defense Game, to Expand on Ethereum's Immutable zkEVM Network
The move aims to tap into the growing play-to-earn trend while leveraging the benefits of Polygon's zkEVM technology for enhanced gaming experiences.
EF Defense and Its Play-to-Earn Mechanics
Weracle, a blockchain game studio founded by Myungyong Shin, the mastermind behind the successful mobile RPG, Endless Fantasy, is all set to breathe new life into EF Defense. This mobile tower defense strategy game, available on iOS and Android, offers players an engaging play-to-earn experience where they must protect the Land of Abundance from the encroaching darkness threatening the continent of Akaros.
With a visually stunning aesthetic similar to Endless Fantasy, EF Defense captivates players with its unique gameplay and storytelling. The game boasts an impressive selection of 70 different heroes, each with distinct abilities, and allows players to explore various customization options to suit their playstyle.
Embracing Immutable zkEVM for Enhanced Gaming
In a strategic partnership with Web3 game publisher Immutable, Weracle is gearing up to relaunch EF Defense on the Ethereum scaling network Immutable zkEVM. This move aims to leverage the advantages of Polygon's zkEVM technology, offering players a seamless and cost-effective gaming experience compared to traditional Ethereum mainnet transactions.
As the game already features hero characters as NFTs on Polygon's network, integrating NFTs and tokens on Immutable zkEVM remains an exciting prospect. The specifics of how these elements will be utilized are yet to be revealed, but it promises to enhance the game's overall economy and player engagement.
Immutable's zkEVM network, designed to cater to gaming, aligns perfectly with Weracle's vision for the future. Andrew Sorokovsky, VP of Global Business Development at Immutable, expressed confidence in Weracle's transition to Web3, given their expertise in Web2 titles with millions of loyal players.
