According to the announcement, CryptoGladiator combines blockchain technology with traditional game elements by allowing users to purchase, collect, and upgrade gladiators for arena competition. Given that the game is built on the NEO blockchain, each gladiator is a unique digital asset and 8,640 generation 0 gladiators will be available for purchase for 1-2 GAS each at the time of the launch.
CryptoGladiator looks to combine both social and competitive gaming elements, building off the successes of other popular blockchain collectibles games, including CryptoKitties. Each competition will reward GAS prizes, further incentivizing players to work on upgrading their gladiators.
To compete in official contests for GAS prizes, players will need to collect at least five gladiators for 5v5 battles. However, 1v1 and 3v3 training modes are also available.
To further kickstart community adoption, CryptoGladiator is currently offering up to two free gladiators to people who join their online communities, including their Telegram and Discord channels. More information regarding these channels and the giveaway can be found in the official announcement.
