Azra Games announced plans to run its first NFT (non-fungible token) collection, The Hopeful on September 28th, on Magic Eden. The NFTs are part of the company’s forthcoming Legends & Legions game.
Magic Eden is a community-centric NFT marketplace. The Hopeful NFTs become PFPs, face off the upcoming Azra Games universe, and grant holders special Azra Games community benefits and perks.
The Hopeful NFT holders will have access to private Discord channels with the Azra team, early beta access to Azra titles, and other undisclosed benefits.
Legions andamp; Legends is a collectible combat RPG from Azra Games.
In the statement, the first NFT artwork of Azras was created with the pioneering spirit of the web3 community and a shared aspiration of an offer to the web 3, it said the CEO and founder of Azra Games. Our collections Name Hopeful reflect both that promise and spirit. The graphic novel art style is the first to become the age of comics in which Azras Paul Martin, a former comic artist, acted out for himself. We’re excited to have a partner with Magic Eden and bring our mint to all the crypto hopefuls.
Legends and Legions are the first game in existence of Azra Games. The tournament recently closed a 15 million dollar seed round from Andreessen Horowitz, NFX and other leading gaming and web3 investors. Otero has previously been on the lead at Capital Games in the development of the animated animated TV series Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. (Lost year the Star Wars game hit 100 million downloads).
Azra Games is working to create interactive, immersive universes, with an expertise in gaming and virtual worlds, powered by the Web3 technology, such as NFTs. The technology uses the blockchain to authenticate digital items. The seed funding will be used to accelerate development of an epic, fantastical collectibles and mass combat RPG of Azras.
The collectibles and combat role-playing game is set in a sci-fi fantasy universe, where gamers can compete with Legions in a new battle experience, craft massive war machines, trade NFTs in-game, and earn rewards in a new way.
The hopefuls gauntlet pilot.
Ken Walton, vice-president of development at Azra Games, said in a statement that Ethereum needed a high-quality launchpad like Magic Eden. We are delighted to have it used to mint The Hopeful. This initial collection is especially unique for our studio. We hope that the talented people at Magic Eden will partner you.
The Hopeful characters are the work of the Genesis Merchant Company, intrepid explorers, miners, scrappers and traders who discovered the Corvus Galaxy that appeared in Legends and Legions. It’s the first time that a person can snag his own a prototype.
We are excited to take off Hopeful collection on Magic Edens Launchpad and give access to the magical universe created by Azra Games. Gaming is our principal focus. We were pleased to work with Azras team of experienced builders to make further inroads in web3 gaming, said Jack Lu, the director of Magic Eden.
The game of the Legions and Legends is a slash of blockchain.
Magic Eden recently expanded to the Ethereum blockchain in August 2022. As part of the company’s cross-chain expansion, Magic Eden introduced Magic Eden List (an allowlist/whitelist management tool that allows creators to build collection interest), cross-chain drop calendar (a holistic view of the planet’s best upcoming mints) and cross-chain launchpad (which allows users to seamlessly mint in SOL, ETH, and credit card) to create a magical gift.
