Introducing The Machines Arena to Web3

We are happy to announce that The Machines Arena has entered the Web3 space in partnership with Sky Mavis, the creators of the Axie Infinity Universe and the Ronin chain. The Machines Arena is now a hero shooter where players engage in PvE and PVP combat delivered from a top-down perspective, where you can earn Digital Collectibles on the Ronin chain.

Our goal was to find and engage a partner for The Machines Arena - someone who not only knows how to make games but also shares their passion for community building. That’s how we connected with Sky Mavis. It was clear that the community was at the forefront of Sky Mavis' decision-making process. They asked us in-depth questions about The Machines Arena's vision, always circling back to how it would benefit the community and the ecosystem.

Sky Mavis' dedication to the community is evident in their vision for Ronin. They've built a gaming platform that puts gaming and community first, not as an afterthought or alternative revenue stream like some other chains. They've been paving the way for Web3 gaming since 2018, and their dedication to building a studio-centric ecosystem is taking things to the next level in 2023.

Ronin is built specifically for gaming and is designed to provide a smooth and seamless experience for players. Its lightning-fast transaction speeds and low fees make it an ideal platform for in-game purchases and play-to-earn mechanics. Ronin also provides robust security features, ensuring that players' assets and transactions are protected from potential threats.

We believe that through Sky Mavis and Ronin, we can provide our players with the best possible gaming experience while also fostering a strong and vibrant community.

About The Machines Arena

The Machines Arena is a thrilling hero-shooter game that offers intense, heart-pounding combat from a top-down viewpoint. Designed for cross-platform compatibility, The Machines Arena is accessible to gamers on both mobile and PC devices. Although simple to pick up, this game demands mastery as players control multiple heroes and employ powerful weapons within The Machines universe. The Machines Arena promises cutting-edge gameplay, elevating the gaming experience to unprecedented heights.

Each PvP match is an adrenaline-rushed 4v4 battle. Squad up with your friends and test your teamwork in intense, causal, but competitive 5 to 7-minute battles. Choose from multiple heroes, each with unique abilities and weapons, and engage in combat in a wide range of game modes in quick play or custom lobbies.

A PvP game mode Pushback will be the first mode available to play now – Where two teams fight to push the cart into the other team's base. The cart rails are split into three areas, one for each team and a neutral zone, and teams win by pushing the cart out of the neutral zone and into the enemy team zone. By the end of the match timer, or by pushing the cart the entire way to the other end of the rail (ending the match early), if the cart is still within the neutral zone before the time runs out - the neutral zone will start to shrink until the cart ends on either side.

About the new Death Run PvE Mode and Digital Collectibles

In the new updated version, you will be able to play a single-player game mode called Death Run, a PvE mode where your skills and knowledge on when to quit are important for a successful run. It is a high adrenaline rush mode, where you race the clock and defeat death. If you want your score to count and be registered, you have to know when to stop and exit the Death Run. You will be able to earn Digital Collectibles in the future for your PvE character to match your playstyle and personality.

Once in a while, we will be launching the Death Run Challenge, where the risks and rewards are high. The challenge is intended to bring fairness to a tournament. A fixed seed will be in place to ensure all players get the same experience. That means your skills are being put to the test. The same rules apply in the challenge as in a normal run; to lock in your score and have it registered, you must make the right choice on when to stop and exit the Death Run. The leader of the board takes it all at the end of the challenge run.

The rewards you will obtain through gameplay are Digital Collectibles. You will earn them through day-to-day plays, by joining tournaments or events, and seasonal rewards. This is not a limited list, as there will be many more ways to earn. Everything you’ve earned, unlocked, or gotten rewarded will be tied to your account. You will have the ability to bring those items on the chain if you wish to do so. There you can trade or sell to other players.

Sign-up for the closed-beta testing is live and currently limited to invite-only. Secure your spot and sign up now.

If you are chosen, we’ll get back to you with a code and welcome you into the arena.
