PVP Blockchain Game Spider Tanks’ biggest Beta test is live and kicking! The game, developed by GAMEDIA, announced its Closed Beta testing yesterday. Touted as the world’s first battle-to-earn esport, Spider Tanks is the latest blockchain game on Gala Games. Some are even calling it the blockchain’s answer to League of Legends!
The game’s developers decided on the name “Spider Tanks” only recently. For this, GAMEDIA received over 600 title suggestions, from which they picked the top 10 titles based on votes. Finally, they voted again and selected the not-so-original, Spider Tanks.
How to join the SpiderTanks Beta
To join Spider Tanks’ Closed Beta, players have to own a Tank. If you don’t own Tanks yet, you can get them in two ways. One, you can buy a complete Tank from the Gala Games Store, after spending at least 2022 GALA or $201. Otherwise, a Tank Body and a Tank Weapon is enough, as together they make a complete Tank. These will cost around 600 GALA each.
Furthermore, the team recently added three new Weapons and Bodies to the Spider Tanks Store. “Right now (while supplies last) [this] is your cheapest opportunity to pick them up and take your place among the ranks of official Beta testers!” the game noted in a blog post.
Those who own a complete Tank can automatically join the Spider Tanks Beta. All they have to do is download the GALA LAUNCHER here.
What is the Spider Tanks Game?
Spider Tanks is a PVP brawler where players can battle it out in different maps using various Tank Bodies and Weapons. While it is a free to play game, it has also added several play-to-earn mechanics. These revolve around skill-based competitions, resource collection, and upgrade cycles.
Many game experts and reviewers are calling this the blockchain’s answer to League of Legends. With similar game mechanics, perhaps the Spider Tanks Beta could take off in a similar way.
Blockchain Games like League of Legends
Certainly, NFTs and the play-to-earn elements of blockchain games could be revolutionary for multiplayer pvp games. Allegedly, Riot Games (the owners of League of Legends) are already considering Blockchain tech for themselves. However, will it already be too late? Maybe Spider Tanks, or the yet-to-launch Thetan Arena really can give these traditional games a run for their money.
