Illuvium Closed Beta released and new info on Land prices revealed
Around 500 players get an early hands-on experience of PvE autobattler gameplay, while new info on starting prices for an upcoming land sale is revealed.
Illuvium, a stunning open-world NFT autobattler, has launched into closed beta.
Access to the closed beta version has been given to only 500 players or so, with some new information on the prices of land also being released. Those who have been picked to play this early version of the game get to experience Survival mode, the PvE autobattler part of the Ethereum-based title. A leaderboard is in place as well, allowing beta testers to fight for daily high-scores. PvP and open-world exploration are not available in this beta stage, nor is the mobile, land-based city builder, Illuvium: Zero.
Speaking of Illuvium: Zero, while the title will feature free land that allows anyone to play the game as any other mobile title, those who want to play to earn will need to own land in the form of an NFT. Thus, there will be a land sale eventually, and while there is no confirmed date on this sale, the approximate prices you can expect to be in place have been revealed, though these land prices may still be subject to change depending on what the DAO decides.
The current starting prices for the 4 tiers of land are the following, from Tier 1 to Tier 4: 2 ETH, 6 ETH, 20 ETH and 80 ETH. Because this sale will actually be a Dutch auction lasting 120 minutes, the starting price can actually go lower after every 10 minutes. This means that Tier 1 land could potentially drop to as low as 0.12 ETH, while Tier 4 land could reach 4.94 ETH. That is, if any land is still even available for purchase in the last 10 minutes of the auction. The total land supply of 20k is divided as follows: Tier 1 has 12029 plots, Tier 2 5012, Tier 3 2088, Tier 4 869 and Tier 5 2 land plots.
The special Tier 5 land is not available in this Dutch auction – it will be sold via an English auction, where the highest bidder claims the most valuable land that will ever exist in the Illuvium universe.
