Ark Rivals is a user-generated-content NFT game with a Sci-fi action strategy that allows players to play, create and earn. The Gameplay follows an attack and defense mode, players war with their airships and attack enemies and develops a strong base against other players’ attacks using the in-game resources. Ark Rivals is a free creative game that rewards the creativity of players when they participate in the game, buy land, buy $ARKN miner, or join Faction Wars.
What the project aims to achieve is communicated in its mission and vision statement.
The Ark Rivals Game Play
Ark Rivals revolves around battles, building a UGC base, collecting resources, and evolving. To establish a base, players create buildings in their design and taste. The buildings are constructed using Gold, players mint Gold to erect their buildings, upgrade them and achieve a higher production rate.
Acquired resources through the player’s constructed mines are stored in the ark; the ark is the core of the base and must be improved to house the mined resources. Players defend their base using the in-game defense buildings, to shield the base from enemy attacks. The Land mines are the invincible havoc, shield generator protects in house structures from attacks, Bolt caster; “the electrocution”, Flame thrower doesn’t work for air units but is good at flaming up incoming enemies. For air unit targets rather use a Missile turret, Photon cannons are used against starships, the Mini turret is a barricade for enemies.
Weapons and walls are not enough to ward off enemies, the player creates their commanders, ships, and customized squadrons to defend their base or attack enemies. The customized squadron is the player’s soldiers, where the player is the commander controlling their ships and flagging their soldiers to attack enemy bases. Ships are in different types and parts, each has a unique skill and stat. Commanders have two levels of rarity: legendary and immortal commander.
Commanders not only go for war or attack, but they also go on missions to gather resources (Gold, Hyper fuel) with which to construct their ARK base. Player boosts their ships, commander, and soldiers with the in-game Hyper Fuel Pump. Gold and Hyper fuel are the in-game currencies, they are produced by Gold mine and Fuel mine respectively. Gem, also an in-game currency, is used to summon ships, commanders, and Arkadium, a powerful stone that possesses the ability to level up a player’s game power.
The player battle formation is tested in faction wars; a player versus environment global war where players purchase an NFT land in either of these 5 factions Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune to amass the faction resources and win wars. The war will last for 30 days. Players go on battles against other players attacking their bases and looting their resources.
