Looking for the next big NFT game because you were a bit late to Axie Infinity? Then ChainGuardians might be the game for you. This NFT game is up-and-coming as it has a good roadmap ahead of it. Most importantly, however, the game has a good economy which can help you earn as you play the game.
ChainGuardians is a free-to-play RPG game putting you in control of NFTs, which are the core of the gameplay. You can play ChainGuardians in two ways. For starters, it is an NFT mining platform where you can get unique assets you can eventually sell in the future. Alternatively, you can also play Chain Guardians as an RPG.
There are two tokens in ChainGuardians. First is CGG or ChainGuardians Governance, which gives you access to governance in the game and staking and in-game markets. The more accessible token is ChainGuardians Coin which you can earn by playing the game naturally. Now, how does this promising title play?
How To Play ChainGuardians?
Let’s first help with creating an account for the game. All you need to play ChainGuardians is a MetaMask wallet you will use to connect with the game. You also need an email to log in too. The best part is the game is free-to-play, so you do not need any tokens to play it.
Once you have created your account, select Play RPG, this will take you to the RPG aspect of ChainGuardians which is currently the primary gameplay mode. From the menu, you will see the game plays similarly to a traditional RPG, only this time, you will be taking on quests in worlds based on another crypto.
With that out of the way, it is time to start playing. ChainGuardians plays similarly to a turn-based RPG. The goal is to clear the enemy units and have your units survive. Each enemy unit is weak to certain attack types, and you should exploit these weaknesses in the game. If you can win the mission, you can earn CGC, which you can use to get more units and even upgrade them with new equipment. Most importantly, they allow you to purchase new Guardians.
What Are Guardians?
To put it simply, you will have control over various types of units in the game. The rarer the unit, the more powerful it is. The game gives you access to free units at first, called Captains and Lieutenants. Each of these units is also classified by various rarities, including common, uncommon, and rare. Each unit also features unique stats and mechanics.
Your goal, of course, is to put in as many Guardians as you can in the game. These are the most powerful NFTs in ChainGuardians currently. What is good is you can task your units to go into the mining pool or stake them for better rewards. Guardians are more valuable than both CGG and CGC, so make sure to save up for them.
The game features a gacha like system like one you find in mobile games. Again, the goal is to draw Guardians from the pool.
ChainGuardians is an exciting newcomer in the NFT world. There is a lot to be excited about in the game, and it will be good to see how the game improves within the coming months. With this guide, you can dip your toes into the game. Try to play now since the game is still in its early stages.
