Spider Tanks is one of the first games powered by Web3 (blockchain) tech from Gala Games, with official release scheduled for Halloween 2022. The game is an arena style PvP brawler. Players customize their tanks in a garage that consists of player-owned upgradeable parts. These parts are also owned as transferable blockchain items, commonly known as NFTs.
The launch of Spider Tanks is significant not only for Gala Games as their first AAA-quality release from a long list of in-development projects, but also for the broader gaming community, due to the game’s esports appeal and reward opportunities. There are many ways for players to participate in the Spider Tanks ecosystem for rewards, especially the most skilled players.
Additionally, as of the official launch, Spider Tanks will be powered by Gala’s own layer 1 blockchain, currently known as Project GYRI. Custom built to power a large decentralized gaming platform, this blockchain is intended to reduce network fees, increase sustainability, and maximize efficiency, by eliminating aspects of the more widespread Ethereum network that are not needed for gaming purposes. Still, in-game assets living on Gala’s blockchain will have the ability to be bridged to and from the Ethereum network.
Spider Tanks is also a poignant Web3 launch because of the variety of ways in which players and collectors can support the game for rewards. For battles, players and owners will be rewarded in the game’s reward token, called SILK. This token will be awarded directly to players’ Gala Games wallets and can be used in the game.
