Where world-class gameplay meets play-to-earn

For players to share the value generated by playing games they love

At Battlebound, we build games for players. These passionate communities pour their time and resources into their favorite games but historically have not seen nearly enough value and ownership to reflect their efforts spent furthering the games ecosystem. Battlebound aims to revolutionize how developers and players share in the rewards of the games they play a pivotal role in building.

INVESTORS

Play-to-Earn Social Wonderland

COMPETITIVE NFT BASED MINIGAMES

REAL OWNERSHIP & UTILITY

The Evaverse is a Battlebound’s web3 multiplayer metaverse game. It’s built for players and NFT collectors to compete, play, and socialize in an immersive world. It’s live on PC/Mac, with a mobile release coming later this year.

Evaverse is an open platform for other NFT communities and IPs that otherwise couldn’t build a metaverse with solid and consistent game dynamics. We’ve partnered with several notable NFT collections to integrate playable avatars for their respective communities. We will continue to partner with projects and facilitate open integrations as the Evaverse expands.

PROJECT A

next-Generation Creature Collector

Project A is a brand new IP in development focused on deep immersion and onboarding new players into the world of play-to-earn. Project A innovates on traditional creature collecting gameplay by blending competitive multiplayer combat with social progression and adventure. Project A offers players a more curated gaming experience with unique interoperability opportunities between all of Battlebound’s titles. All Battlebound players will benefit from early participation in our ecosystem through airdrops, NFT rewards, and early access to games. We highly value our community and aim to create long-term value for all our NFT holders. Subscribe to our newsletter for the latest updates and developments of Project A.
