Vulcan Forged has Acquired Web3 MMA Game the Galactic Fight League
Galactic Fight League has migrated from Solana to Elysium - Vulcan Forged's carbon-neutral Layer 1 blockchain.
Galactic Fight League now belongs to Vulcan Forged
Leading blockchain game studio Vulcan Forged has acquired the NFT MMA game Galactic Fight League (GFL). Per the official statement, the acquisition was necessary as GFL sees the need for a bigger team with better capabilities and expertise to take over the project.
With that, Galactic Fight League has migrated from Solana to Elysium - Vulcan Forged's Layer 1 blockchain that's home to a growing list of exciting Web3 games.
According to GFL, Vulcan Forged is an established NFT game studio, marketplace, and dApp incubator with 10+ games, a 20000+ community, and a top 5 NFT marketplace in terms of volume. In fact, Vulcan Forged has just completed an $8 million Series A funding round led by SkyBridge Capital.
The GFL project team has also been long-term friends with Vulcan Forged CEO Jamie Thomson and his team. For all these reasons, the Galactic Fight League trusts Vulcan Forged to take over the project and bring the game to "galactic heights" they have always envisioned.
Although Vulcan Forged now owns Galactic Fight League, the original GFL team will stay as project advisors.
What is Galactic Fight League?
Originally launched on Solana, Galactic Fight League is a play-to-earn NFT MMA game that features 4,000 NFT fighters of different classes: Humans, Cyborgs, Aliens, and Zombies.
At launch, the game will allow players to train their fighters and specialize in their own style of combats. Players can also upgrade their coach, gym, equipment, supplements, sparring partners, and clothing.
Though GFL hasn't revealed much about its P2E mechanics, the game plans to partner with real-world brands, creating a more realistic experience for players. As of writing, the project's NFT collection has already featured real-life MMA superstars, such as the 12-time UFC Champion Demetrious Johnson.
