The latest game to seize the attention of the Web3 market is Swords of Blood – the first AAA-quality fast-paced F2P hack-and-slash RPG in the blockchain, launching on Polygon. With flashy combat, stellar graphics, and various game modes, the game is widely speculated to become the biggest blockchain game of this year.
Will it live up to the hype? Here is an analysis.
The crypto play-to-earn craze is slowly dying, as projects fail to retain their user base and, in turn, the value of the in-game assets. Even top crypto games, that once went on double-digit bull runs overnight, are now struggling to get back on their feet. The play-to-earn business model is proving to be unsustainable.
The reasons are not obscure. To begin with, play-to-earn games have a high entry barrier. Technically and financially. The in-game assets, once the project amasses investor support, are beyond the reach of average gamers. More importantly, the games are hollow. Poor gameplay and reward systems fail to incentivize gamers in the long run. As a result, the game loses users and the value of the in-game assets takes a plunge, killing the project within months of going live.
It’s about time Web 3.0 games redirected the focus to gameplay, instead of fundraising and token rallies. A play-to-earn business model wouldn’t aid the sustainable growth of the blockchain gaming industry. It needs a radical solution to spring back and flourish.
And that’s exactly what Swords of Blood aims to accomplish with its new play-to-own RPG. Built on the framework of a successful, award-winning title, Swords of Blood is geared up to change the way we have known blockchain gaming.
The earlier version of Swords of Blood was first published in 2019 with limited access and features. Despite that, it went on to seize the attention of a large community of gamers. Interestingly, the MVP has been downloaded by over 4M players from App Store and Play Store. In other words, Swords of Blood is built on fertile ground. The MVP is playable and features a wide range of asynchronous game modes like:
Hit Box Games LLC holds the rights to reimagine the game, taking it to Web3 with fresh, engaging features. The Swords of Blood team comes with years of experience in the gaming industry. For example, CEO James Seaman is a game veteran with more than 35 years of experience.
Well aware that a game can’t survive without gripping gameplay and a strong gaming community, they’re on a mission to resurrect blockchain gaming.
Swords of Blood is set in the World of Ezura, which is now in ruins. As a Swords of Blood warrior, it is upon you to breathe life back into the desolate lands through cunning gameplay. The reimagined game will step up the MVP with the following features.
Swords of Blood will be financially and technically accessible to a large gaming community, including those who are new to crypto.
It is a free-to-play game with blockchain features expanding the game’s economy. To bridge the technical gap, the game gives you a custodial wallet through Stardust upon signing up. It does away with the need to download and set up a wallet outside the game. With that, you can store, buy, and sell $SWDTKN (native token) and in-game GUTS directly. GUTs (Game Utility Tokens) are the NFTs in Swords of Blood. The game also supports the purchase of $SWDTKN using your Mastercard or Visa card via Simplex, thus featuring an easy onboarding experience for traditional gamers.

As the native token of Swords of Blood, $SWDTKN is one of the best cryptocurrencies to buy this year. Not just because of the gripping gameplay and the fast-growing gaming community. Or the partnerships with leading industry players like Fundamental Labs, Solana Ventures, Master Ventures, Gate.io Labs, Magnus Capital, Flame, and Acknoledger. The token presale is held in March 2023 at discounted prices, leaving large room for returns for early investors.
It is important to note that the presale price will go through a gradual hike over three stages. Early token holders have exclusive access to the game’s closed beta, automatic whitelisting to future NFT sales, and phygital giveaways, to name a few.
