Ubisoft's Web3 Game "Champions Tactics" Raises Over $2M from NFT Minting After Release



Ubisoft’s latest game triumphs with NFT sales, but Ethereum fees spark user concerns; Future plans aim for an inclusive gaming experience.

Ubisoft’s latest release, Champions Tactics: Grimoria Chronicles, has swiftly become a standout success in the world of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). The game’s immediate triumph in NFT sales has caught the attention of the gaming and crypto communities alike.

In a strategic move, Ubisoft in a recent X post initiated a limited pre-sale of exclusive Warlords NFTs to a select group of fans. The move generated considerable anticipation among the gaming community. However, when the floodgates opened to the public at 4 p.m. ET on Monday, all 9,999 Warlords were snatched up in under 20 minutes, marking a rapid and impressive sell-out.

The aftermath of the public release witnessed a bustling resale market on platforms such as OpenSea. Warlords NFTs, originally obtained for free, are now being resold for approximately $600 each or 0.27 ETH. Notably, only a mere 7% of the total Warlords are currently available for resale, emphasizing their scarcity in the market.

Ethereum Transaction Fees Impact Ubisoft’s NFT Success

While the Warlords NFTs were initially free to mint, buyers were not exempt from Ethereum transaction fees. These fees, subject to variation based on network demand, added an additional layer to the acquisition process, impacting the overall success of Ubisoft’s NFT venture.

The introduction of Ethereum transaction fees sparked reactions and concerns among users. The varying costs, dependent on network conditions, led to a spectrum of user sentiments. Some embraced the cost as a necessary part of the process, while others expressed frustration, emphasizing the need for a smoother and more predictable fee structure.

Ubisoft’s Future Plans for Champions Tactics and Crypto Integration

Ubisoft is gearing up for future crypto integrations in Champions Tactics by introducing the Oasys blockchain. This strategic move aims to eliminate Ethereum transaction fees for players, offering a more cost-effective and user-friendly experience in subsequent crypto features within the game.

To address concerns of gamers who missed out on the initial NFT releases, Ubisoft has reassured its community. In the future, the company plans to release a free Champions figure drop, providing an inclusive opportunity for gamers who may have been unable to participate in the earlier NFT offerings. This commitment aligns with Ubisoft’s goal of making Champions Tactics an accessible and engaging experience for all players.
