Announcing Season 1: Vikings in the Miniverse
Goodbye open beta, hello Miniverse
As of December 16, 2021, Mini Royale: Nations (MRN) is the first live multiplayer game on Solana.
MRN was available via open beta for the last few months. The basic first person shooter (FPS) game, with modes like Capture the Flag, Team Deathmatch, Battle Royale, and daily weapon-specific modes, is a small taste of the full game, which combines the core FPS gameplay with an underlying, land-control-oriented strategy game (whitepaper here).
At full launch, the game will have evolved to include many new PVP (player vs. player) and PVE (player vs. environment) modes as well a robust clan/social system that ties the core shooter gameplay together with the land control strategy meta.
What’s happened so far?
On December 6, 2021, we launched our Season 1 Premium Collection NFTs on Magic Eden’s Solana NFT marketplace. The initial drop of 2.5k Viking and Soldier NFT Heroes sold out in under 10 seconds —without bots scooping up any significant portion and creating a significant price barrier for our players who want to use the Heroes in game.
On December 9, 2021, the world minted the remaining 7.5k Heroes on the Mini Royale: Nations web portal in under 20 seconds, again, with strict bot prevention measures implemented.
On December 16, 2021, we relaunched MRN with new functionality allowing players to use their Heroes in game.
⚠️ As part of the relaunch all accounts were deleted, meaning that players will need to create a new account in order to accumulate XP and BP points, use their Hero in game, complete Daily Quests to earn Orbs, and claim daily attendance rewards.
In addition to the integration of Solana into MRN, the release included the following updates:
Orbs, our new in-game currency (non-crypto, off-chain, and accessible to players with or without a web3 wallet) are live! Get ready to grind for Orbs by completing Quests objectives. These orbs can be converted into on-chain currency ($CHEDDAR) through clan and social activities (game loop here)
Daily Quests are now live - complete tasks every day and get rewards! Tasks will be updated every 24 hours. Complete all daily tasks for an extra prize!
We've updated Attendance Rewards - come and play everyday and get new items and Orbs!
Our new sniper-friendly Frostbite map is now live - this new map was inspired by Viking lore and is playable in Team Death Match and Capture the Flag modes. Get your sniper rifles ready!
We've launched a new Game Mode menu - The Miniverse asked for more game modes and more game modes we shall deliver!
What happens next
Next week, we’ll be launching the Season 1 Battle Pass and Season Quests, which will reward players with game skins that can be minted into NFTs.
In the first half of 2022, players will be able to earn our on-chain inflationary game token, $CHEDDAR, through social gameplay and eventually through converting Orbs.
Players will also be able to earn or buy our governance token, $ROYALE.
And one more thing: a HUGE THANK YOU to our amazing community for helping us get this far. The feedback and support we have gotten has been truly incredible and humbling. We are entering a new future of open economies and community-driven game development and we couldn’t be more excited.
