New crypto game project Calvary is compared to GameFi juggernauts such as The Sandbox and Decentraland for the impact it could potentially have on the space.
The fighting card strategy game looks set to disrupt the gaming market for winning when it launches, with pundits excited about its potential to attract both casual and traditional gamers to blockchain.
The presale has raised nearly $2 million since its launch and is now entering its final stage after the developers decided to end the presale early.
Calvaria will end the presale after stage 5
Originally, the presale was to take place over 10 stages with 300 million RIA tokens on offer.
However, the developers have now decided to modify the pre-sale offer, which means that stage 5 will be the last chance for investors to buy RIA before they reach the open market, where the price is expected to rise. .
In a article to investors published on MediumCalvaria has revealed details of the presale changes.
The presale is in Stage 4, with tokens on sale for $0.025 each, with tokens rising to $0.0325 in Stage 5 – a 30% increase from the current price and an increase of 225 % against Step 1 price of $0.01.
The significant change, however, is that the pre-sale supply will be significantly reduced from 300 million tokens to 150 million – with 115 million of those already sold.
When the presale moves to stage 5 – after a target of $2.1 million and 120 million tokens sold – there will be only 30 million tokens left, 20% of the presale allocation and only 3% of the total supply of up to 1 billion tokens.
This means that investors have a limited time to secure their tokens before the project moves to its initial exchange offering (IEO).
Listing details have yet to be finalized, but with Calvaria already having partnerships with centralized exchanges KuCoin and Gate.io, it shouldn’t take that long to resolve.
Additionally, both KuCoin and Gate are in the top 5 exchanges by trading volume, leading analysts to predict that the coin will pump past its listing.
The project has yet to decide where to reallocate the remaining 150 million tokens that have been bookmarked for presale, but will notify subscribers about its support in due course.
Calvaria to attract casual and traditional gamers
Calvaria has been exciting investors as its flagship game, Duels of Eternity, was developed to attract both casual and traditional gamers to the blockchain.
While Decentraland and The Sandbox became institutional and retail investor favorites during the 2021 crypto gaming bull run, the player experience and player base did not match the investor enthusiasm.
In fact, according to DappRadar, the two games have combined for less than 20,000 players in the past month – which pales in comparison to Fortnite, Minecraft or Roblox, which attract tens of millions every day.
Calvaria believes that Duels of Eternity will be able to attract mainstream gamers to the blockchain by solving two major problems faced by other GameFi projects.
The first is the prohibitive cost – with most P2E games even requiring expensive NFTs to play – and the second is a lack of blockchain knowledge that discourages many gamers.
Calvaria will solve these problems by offering a completely free Web2 version of Duels of Eternity that is fully playable and does not require any crypto wallet or purchase to access.
The free-to-play (F2P) version will be on sale like the P2E version but with all rewards removed.
In its place, Calvaria will try to lure players to the blockchain on the strength of the game itself, as well as adding a visible tracker to see how much they could have earned playing the P2E version.
The F2P game will also feature playful quests that teach players about blockchain technology in exchange for rewards and assets.
What is Duels of Eternity?
Duels of Eternity is a battle card strategy game set in the afterlife that sees players stack their decks with cards and trumps and take on opponents in one-on-one matches.
Although there are similar games on the blockchain, such as Gods Unchained and Splinterlands, Calvaria has added a number of quirks – in addition to the F2P version – to set itself apart.
Duels of Eternity will be a fully 3D game and will also be available on mobile devices on iOS and Android to make it even more accessible, which is why we dubbed it one of our best crypto games to play.
In addition to the traditional player versus player mode, Duels of Eternity also features a single-player story mode that not only expands on the Calvaria universe, but allows players to earn cards and assets that can be used in other modes.
Calvaria is also poised to take a seasonal approach to gaming to ensure its long-term success, following Fortnite and Apex Legends by offering new characters, upgrades and seasonal tournaments over time. .
The project is also set to develop its own in-house eSports team and will host eSports tournaments with some of the biggest names in the community.
Later in the roadmap, the developers will introduce virtual reality (VR) functionality to the ecosystem.
Players will fully own their cards and assets as NFTs, which will be fully tradable on the open market – players can also combine two cards into one to upgrade them.
Calvaria developers are doxxed and have been KYC verified by CoinSniper, while the token smart contract has been audited by SolidProof.
Calvaria also runs a giveaway where three winners will share a prize of $100,000 RIA tokens.
