Animoca Brands has announced a collaboration with chess champion Magnus Carlsen.
According to the statement, Anichess has also entered into a partnership with online platform Chess.com. These agreements are part of the first phase to launch the Web3 chess game.
The company stated that the initial stage of the new project involves PvE gameplay. We are talking about playing against the environment or a computer opponent, as well as completing tasks every day.
In addition, the project will offer participants the chance to receive in-game Orbs of Power assets. With their help, users will gain access to various bonuses, including new puzzles and rewards.
During the second phase, Anichess will provide the opportunity to play against other players. Its company plans to launch before the end of the first quarter of 2024.
“Anichess revolutionizes the classic game royale by combining traditional strategy and gameplay with innovative spell-based elements, a fantasy storyline and Web3 functionality,” said Animoca Brands co-founder and executive chairman Yat Siu.
Previously, Anichess raised $1.5 million to launch the project from venture funds GameFi Ventures, The Operating Group, Koda Capital, Bing Ventures and a number of other companies.
In December 2023, Animoca Brands raised a second round of funding for its Mocaverse platform. The company raised $11.88 million.
Let's remember that we wrote that Yat Siu predicted the rapid growth of GameFi in 2024.
