Machines Arena Launches with Early Access Pass on Steam
Civitas recently launched a game on Steam, The Machines Arena. It’s a top-of-the-class MOBA game to showcase their developer’s abilities.
This is an action-packed game wherein two teams of 4-players each fight against each other. The players have access to a wide range of weapons, including guns, lasers, and flamethrowers.
The Launching of Machines Arena has a Different Purpose
Several blockchain games take time to build and launch. However, their marketing begins early on. If the launch extends for a long period of time, the developers risk losing the potential player’s interest. So, to keep everyone entertained and wanting for more, the developers launch small games sometimes on Discord or on the web.
But with Machines Arena, the developers at Civitas are taking a different approach. They developed Machine Arenas, a top-down multiplayer online battle game in the Unreal Engine, to showcase their developer’s abilities.
Although Under Development, Machines Arena is Playable with Early Access
Machine Arenas is still under development, but its status on Steam is that of Early Access. It is still officially in the Closed Beta system, but anyone can access it by clicking on the Request button on the game’s Steam page.
At present, Machine Arenas has a small player base. But it has got a positive response even though the game needs more fine-tuning. It takes up to 20 gigs of space to install the game, and it works with Windows or newer versions of the operating system.
It must be noted that this is not a blockchain game, and it does not even include any NFTs. However, there is a leaderboard, which tracks the player’s performance and provides gift cards as a reward to the top finishers.
Civitas is a city-building game where players come together to construct buildings, harvest goods, and experience augmented reality to find resources. It’s a cooperative game while still being competitive enough. The players collect resources to craft items for their building. Civitas is free to play but to participate in governance decisions; the users must own a piece of land.
