One of the best games on the WAX blockchain, Dark Country, has rolled out yet another update, this time adding daily NFT rewards for the most active players.
There are a lot of great TCGs in Web3, with Gods Unchained and Skyweaver perhaps the best known, but Dark Country certainly has a seat at the table. The reason for TCG’s prevalence in blockchain gaming is a mixture of their ease to develop to a high standard when compared to an FPS or an MMORPG, for instance, and how beautifully cards as NFTs work.
So, what is Dark Country? Dark Country is a Web3 TCG on the WAX blockchain with true card ownership, land, and the most cohesive and alluring aesthetic in the space. The art style and the music are just spectacularly executed, but I digress. What is pertinent to this article is that Dark Country has earning capabilities. Although there is a token, what’s more interesting is that there is now daily NFT rewards for the most active players.
Dark Country has had weekly and monthly tournaments running for some time, which has allowed this game to be all-the-more Play-and-Earn, but this new mechanic weaves in some more ways to benefit from playing. In a blog post at the death of 2022, the DC team announced that the top 5 players each day will receive epic and rare NFT cards, as well as common heroes. The top 5 players will be calculated based on “PvP victories rating”. Rare cards will drop on weekdays, but the juicy epic NFTs will be tied to Saturdays and Sundays — a nicely inclusive touch.
It is great to see Dark Country continuing to roll out updates and content to a game that is already so much more than your average TCG. Q1 of 2023 is set to be significant for Dark Country as the team rolls out the full release of the mobile and desktop game client. This will be followed be an expansion to a new chain in Q2 which could see an influx of new players (personally, I’d like to see the game utilize a chain with a big playerbase, such as Immutable X.)
So, beat the crowds and give Dark Country a whirl, potentially snagging yourself $WAX and epic NFTs for your efforts!
