Cantina Royale, the first title incubated by Verko, a Layer 2 Metaverse experience framework, and Elrond Apes, a collection that comprises 10,000 3D apes that are unique and randomly generated, have announced they are working together to enhance the appeal of the upcoming top-down tactical arcade shooter with play-to-earn mechanics.
According to the press release shared by the company, Elrond Apes NFTs will be included in the game and become usable across single and multiplayer battle modes.
We should take into account the fact that Elrond Apes is just one of the NFT collections that will be included in Cantina Royale, a highly-anticipated free-to-play play-to-earn game. For example, the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) will be integrated in Q3 this year.
The interoperability protocol developed by Verko is an essential part of the Cantina Royale ecosystem because it enables NFT collections to become fully functional and playable 3D in-game characters.
Daniel Sagi of Cantina Royale, has said:
“Seeing NFT interoperability come to life with renowned NFT collections like Elrond Apes always feels like getting one step closer to the core tenet of blockchain technology. By bringing the Elrond Ape and Cantina Royale community together, I’m certain that this partnership will be a shiny case study for interoperability while everyone enjoys playing with their favorite NFTs.”
The initial collection of 3,000 Elrond Apes NFTs will be minted in the second half of July 2022.
Karl Thomas of Elrond Apes has concluded:
“Cantina Royale’s innovative vision to bring the first of a kind free-to-play play-to-earn game was one that Elrond Apes wanted to be part of. From Lending, to breeding to playing the game with their favorite NFTs is where our communities will enjoy. Their innovative interoperability protocol will reach mass market and partnering with them and having unique Elrond apes part of the game, is an exciting endeavor.”
