The fog is now clear. The Iron Sail GameFi-Metaverse hub has opened up the map and revealed the Second Sea with the new title - The Clash-to-Earn Ark Rivals.
What is Ark Rivals?
Ark Rivals is an epic sci-fi action strategy NFT game of resource wars based on User-generated content (UGC) to play, create, and earn. At first glance, Ark Rivals can basically be described as the “Clash of Clan” + “Starcraft” Play-to-Earn real-time strategy game. The game tells the scene of a factions war between Mars, Neptune, Jupiter, Uranus, and Saturn to gain universal control of the economy and power.
Developed by Topebox - a veteran in creating hit titles on Appstore and GooglePlay with experience in blockchain games, Ark Rivals come with very familiar yet innovative gameplay and in-game tokenomic models.
Ark Rivals is leaning more on the entertainment aspect of gaming to capture more mainstream attention. Attaining the familiar and addictive gameplay mechanics of building base, raising troops, and waging war for resources, casual and hardcore gamers can now be on the same page for both playing and earning benefits. Build your base around the main Ark with resources mining machines, tactical defense system, summon commanders with special Arkadium (power set), train your army, and craft your own spaceships.
The battle mode in the faction wars of Ark Rivals is a hybrid core gameplay style. You can deploy your troops in the position you wish to attack the enemy base while simultaneously controlling your spaceship and commander to bring damage to the base. The successful (or fail) rate will be based on how much damage you cause to the opposing defensive army and base.

Tokenomic and NFT implementation
The game tunes everything up with the integration of blockchain and NFTs on almost every interactive element to help players truly own their bases, war machines, and squadrons for both waging wars in-game or trading on the marketplace. The NFT in the game consists of the lands for building bases, spaceships, defensive turrets, commander characters, and more. Ark Rivals features the ARK utility game token with use cases of NFT minting, Create-to-Earn, Governance, Staking, and Mining NFT from non-NFT items to receive passive income.
Both Mainstream and Crypto Players in Ark Rivals benefit from the battle pass in different aspects. Free-to-play players can collect resources and earn non-NFT items as traditional games. In contrast, Crypto Players with ARK tokens can mint non-NFT items into NFT for trading or buying Minner Device. Both NFT and non-NFT items can be used to buy yourself lands to participate in the Faction Wars to earn ARKA and even more lucrative rewards.
This hybrid model is established to create a healthy and sustainable business model for both gamers and developers.
