Time Raiders, the time travel game project created by Utopian Game Labs, has partnered with Polygon Studios, the NFT, gaming and Metaverse arm of Polygon.

Built on the Polygon blockchain, Time Raiders offers players engaging shooter and loot gameplay enhanced by NFT rewards and the game’s native coin, $XPND. The partnership with Polygon Studios prepares the ground for the game’s upcoming open beta launch, which will allow a large community of players to join the adventure.

Blockchain-based play-to-earn games create an attractive use case for NFTs and digital assets, giving everyday gamers the opportunity to generate income from their hobby. However, early entrants to the NFT gaming scene often suffer from disappointing gameplay and costly entry barriers for new users. This gap creates space for developers of gameplay-centric blockchain projects to pick up the slack, creating play-and-win experiences on game-to-win titles.

Time Raiders is a play-and-earn game project that emphasizes play above all else, built by a team with over 20 years of game development expertise. Creating console games based on beloved franchises such as Star Wars, Doctor Who and Die Hard, Utopian Game Labs creates a gameplay-focused experience with visuals and craftsmanship comparable to mainstream AAA titles.

Time Raiders features an extensive set of player versus environment and player versus player game modes as it sends users on a high-octane treasure hunt through different historical time periods and locations. The game does not require an initial purchase of NFT or crypto wallet to participate, aiming for maximum accessibility.

The Polygon Studios partnership is creating a community platform for Time Raiders ahead of the game’s open beta testing. It will also help Utopian Game Labs, which previously received initial investment from Polygon Studios for the project, to add new features and levels to the game. project with future updates.

“We are very proud of our early partnership with Polygon Studios. Securing so much interest before launching our open beta will only push us further to add more community-centric concepts and features to Time Raiders, including user-created levels and new game modes” , said Anthony Charlton, CEO of Utopian Game Labs.

“At Polygon, we believe blockchain gaming will be a key pillar of Web3 growth over the next few years and expect it to rival mainstream gaming globally. Play-to-Earn space has seen significant growth, and we’re especially interested to see how that evolves as higher-quality games that focus on gameplay, fun, and incentives start hitting the market. which is why we’re especially excited to be working with Utopian Game Labs as they pioneer the Play & Earn space with ‘Time Raiders’, their time-traveling, NFT treasure-hunting game,” Steven Bryson-Haynes , vice president and head of business development at Polygon, mentioned.
