Release 1.0.179: Battle Pass, New Season Quests, Gun Perks, and Good Ol' Fashioned Melee
⚡ Battle Pass for Season 1: Vikings in the Miniverse officially begins! LFG! ⚡
Battle Pass is now live!
We just launched the first ever NFT Battle Pass on Solana to reward players with weapons, gear, and brand new character skins that can be minted and truly owned by our players. Our in-game off-chain currency, Orbs, can also be earned through grinding the Battle Pass and Season Quests.
All Battle Pass rewards can be used as soon as they’ve been unlocked. Once our Land Strategy gameplay launches in 2022, Orbs will be able to be converted into Enriched Orbs, which can be used to enter tiered leaderboard events like Clan Wars and Bracket Tournaments.
In order to prevent players using game cheats or hacks from profiting off of our Battle Pass rewards, we will not be launching the functionality for minting Battle Pass items until the end of the season while we continue to update our anti-cheat systems. At the end of Season 1, all non-cheaters will be granted the ability to mint the items they have earned in the Battle Pass as NFTs.
Coming soon: Players with Premium Collection Heroes will start receiving Battle Pass Boosts
Tier 1: 10% boost for holders of one Season 1 Premium Drop NFT
Tier 2: 20% boost for holders of 2-4 Season 1 Premium Drop NFTs
Tier 3: 30% boost for holders of 5+ Season 1 Premium Drop NFTs
Note: Heroes listed on marketplaces will not be eligible to receive these rewards.
We will retroactively give out the Boosts to players that own the NFTs, with plans to implement Battle Pass Boosts for Premium Collection holder into the game interface by early February. Don’t worry though, because all NFTs exist on-chain, we can see all your holdings in real-time and can retroactively grant the BP Boosts to your player account based on your NFT holdings over time. And this is why the blockchain is so awesome!
We believe that game assets should be truly owned by players and that the next evolution of gaming will be centered around open economies. We are so excited to have launched the first system that lets players mint and thus own their hard-earned game rewards into NFTs. We view this launch as a huge milestone in what is now the dawn of Open Economy Gaming.
Introducing new Season Quests for your grinding pleasure
Prepare for battle, Heroes - Season 1 Quests are live!
Season Quests are timed events that reward players for completing specific in-game tasks like:
Getting at least 1 kill with the AK47 in 3 TDM matches
Win 7 matches on the Frostbite map
Place in the Top 3 ten times in Battle Royale mode
Rewards include Orbs, Battle Pass points, character accessories, and melee weapons. Oh, and speaking of melee weapons…
You can now slay enemies with Melee Weapons!
Melee weapons like axes, clubs, bloodstained machetes, swords, and really sharp candy canes (Happy Holidays!) can be earned through completing Season Quests and hitting Battle Pass tiers.
Melee weapons can be equipped as secondary weapons.
Each gun earned from the Battle Pass has a special advantage built in. Perks are randomly assigned to guns and can be viewed in the Gun Details page through the Loadout menu.
Gun perks will not give players significant advantages in PvP mode and are meant to have more utility in PvE mode when weapon leveling is introduced.
As of this release, close to 75% of all gun skins earned from Battle Pass with have at least one perk. About 7% of this group will have 2 perks.
