Ubisoft’s Crypto Quest: Champions Tactics Revolutionizes Gaming with Web3 and NFTs


Ubisoft, a prominent player in the gaming industry, has been actively exploring the realm of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and blockchain technology. Having dipped its toes into NFTs with initiatives like Ghost Recon and ventures into the blockchain space with Assassin’s Creed and Rabbids, Ubisoft is now stepping into the Web3 gaming arena with its original game, Champions Tactics.

Champions Tactics, also known as Grimoria Chronicles, is a tactical role-playing game (RPG) representing a pivotal moment in Ubisoft’s foray into the crypto landscape. Unlike its previous NFT endeavours, Champions Tactics is built from the ground up with NFTs at its core.

Unveiled in late June 2023, Champions Tactics is positioned as a player-versus-player tactical RPG featuring a dark gothic fantasy aesthetic and stylized figurine-like characters.

In a departure from traditional game releases, Ubisoft is introducing Ethereum NFTs called Warlords for Champions Tactics. These NFTs will serve as Profile Picture (PFP) assets for collectors, allowing them to customize their in-game profiles with unique Warlords NFT art. The game will be utilizing the Oasys blockchain.

Ubisoft is adopting a novel approach by offering Warlords NFT collectors early access to acquire up to five playable in-game characters called Champions at no cost. This dual strategy involves releasing collectable NFTs for the game’s characters (Champions) and providing in-game avatars as NFTs (Warlords).

To participate in this NFT offering, aspiring collectors must create a Ubisoft account online, connect an Ethereum-compatible crypto wallet, and ensure sufficient Ethereum in the wallet to cover transaction fees. The minting of NFTs is expected to take place before the end of 2023, with specific details yet to be disclosed.

Collectors must also meet certain criteria, such as being 18 years old and residing in eligible countries. While players in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and most of Europe and South America can participate, some regions, including Bangladesh, China, France, Morocco, Russia, and Nepal, are restricted.

The game’s lore unfolds in the world of Grimoria, ruled by seven distinct factions, each boasting Warlords as their members. These factions engage in power struggles against each other, adding depth to the game’s narrative.

Champions Tactics introduces a unique gameplay dynamic where characters resemble tabletop figurines, each equipped with diverse battle skills. Players must strategically choose three Champions for each player-versus-player match, emphasizing skill-based gameplay.

Ubisoft envisions Champions Tactics as a PC application scheduled for release in early 2024, reflecting the studio’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of traditional gaming through blockchain technology and NFTs.
