nWay Announces Upcoming Release of Web3-Powered Game Wreck League

nWay, a subsidiary of Animoca Brands focused on developing fighting games, is excited to announce the upcoming release of its highly anticipated game, Wreck League. Set to be available on Android, PC, and Mac, Wreck League offers players the opportunity to build, battle, and own their own mechs in real time. This unique strategy not only provides an innovative gameplay experience but also aims to onboard players onto web3, the latest technology trend in gaming.

What sets Wreck League apart from other games in the genre is its vast roster of fighters. With over 1.5 quadrillion possible combinations, players have the freedom to create their own unique mechs and unleash their creativity on the battlefield. This level of customization is unparalleled in the fighting game genre.

In a strategic move, nWay has partnered with Yuga Labs’ Yugaverse web3 characters to license them in Wreck League. This collaboration builds on nWay’s successful partnerships with iconic brands like Power Rangers and WWE, and further enhances the game’s diverse range of playable characters.

nWay’s CEO, Taehoon Kim, shared his enthusiasm for the project in an interview with Gamesbeat: “We’ve always dreamed about a fighting game that’s like a platform. So instead of a traditional fighting game with a set play, Wreck League is all about creating your own fighter.”

Wreck League: Two Versions for Different Audiences

Wreck League will be available in two different versions, each targeting a specific market. The web3 version requires NFT ownership to participate in tournaments and competitive events. This version specifically caters to existing web3 fans who are familiar and comfortable with cryptocurrency transactions. By focusing on this niche audience, nWay hopes to create a strong foundation for the game’s success.

For players who are not yet familiar with web3 or NFTs, nWay offers a web2 version of Wreck League. This version replicates the gameplay and mechanics of the web3 version, allowing players to purchase mechs created with NFTs. This enables web3 players to monetize their assets even outside of the web3 ecosystem, bridging the gap between the two worlds.

Yat Siu, Executive Chairman of Animoca Brands, expressed his excitement for Wreck League: “This is the start of an incredible evolution in the world of esports and competitive gaming. Our mission at Animoca Brands is to deliver digital property rights to the world’s gamers and Internet users. That’s why we are so excited about Wreck League and how this groundbreaking Web3 project will remodel how players engage and compete while truly owning their digital assets.”
