WAR FIELD Cryptomonetises Online First-Person Shooter
New game lets players compete to win real cryptocurrency
July 2, 2018. Getting paid to play video games is a dream of many-a-gamer. A multi-billion-dollar industry means lots of value being created – but mostly for corporations. For gamers themselves, cashing in hasn’t been easy…until now.
A new online game called WAR FIELD takes the “first-person shooter” genre that includes hits like Counter-Strike, Battlefield & Call of Duty, and ups the ante with cryptocurrency you can win from other players.
Players use GOLDER (GLDR) – ERC20-compliant, Ethereum-based cryptographic tokens – to stake on their character’s “life.” GOLDER are available exclusively at warfield.com during the company’s Token Sale (currently in progress).
Players then compete in deathmatch games. Simply put: the winners get GOLDER from the losers. Once the Token Sale has ended, GOLDER will be fully tradeable on cryptocurrency exchanges, according to WAR FIELD CEO and Creator Andrius Mironovskis. That means players can withdraw and sell what they earn playing WAR FIELD. And there will only be a finite amount of GOLDER that will be fixed forever. The token’s scarcity and utility should ensure an increase in its value.
Unlike big tournaments, you don’t need to be an expert player to enjoy WAR FIELD and win cryptocurrency. You just need to be slightly better than your opponents. And because the game is skills-based, it does not come under most countries’ gambling regulations.
“WAR FIELD is not about having the best graphics or giving players something entirely new. It’s an exciting, fast-paced online game from the world’s most popular genre that gives everyone a chance to win something real they can later withdraw and sell,” says Mironovskis.
During the WAR FIELD Token Sale, the company is offering substantial discounts on GOLDER tokens (up to 60% OFF). The discounts will decrease as the sale progresses, with the goal of making 100 GOLDER worth no less than 1 US Dollar by the end of the sale. Once the sale ends, GOLDER will be unlocked and fully tradeable. They can then be withdrawn from the game into any ERC20 ether wallet with no maximum limits and traded freely on cryptocurrency exchanges.
According to Mironovskis, the WAR FIELD first-person shooter is just the beginning for the new company.
“Our aim is no less than to create a global blockchain-driven gaming economy that lets video game players fully monetise their skills,” says Mironovskis. “And what could be better than getting paid to play video games? It’s been a gamer’s dream for so long. Here at WAR FIELD, we are making it a reality for everyone, whether expert or casual player, thanks to blockchain technology and a great online game. And we plan to add more games to the Golder Platform in the future.”
In addition to a team of experienced developers, WAR FIELD boasts a roster of distinguished advisors that includes such industry veterans as Adalberto Bruno (Electronic Arts), Tom Frisina (Bally Technologies, Electronic Arts, Imagination Park Entertainment, thatgamecompany), Dylan Sharkey (LinkedIn), Scott Shirley (professional gamer: HALO and Call of Duty), and Benjamin Turshana (Electronic Arts, IGN, GameSpy).
“I believe that the adoption of this kind of platform for in-game purchases, winnings, etc. on top of the possibility to earn, exchange, withdraw, save, or sell GOLDER tokens via the Ethereum network can be potentially a game-changer,” says Adalberto Bruno, a mobile platforms and digital ecosystems expert, gaming industry veteran, and VR/AR pioneer whose portfolio includes 8 years as technical director with Electronic Arts.
WAR FIELD is currently available to try for free. During the trial period, each new player gets free GOLDER to get started. To get more tokens for bigger stakes, players can participate in the WAR FIELD Token Sale (currently in progress).
