    Blockchain Card Game to Be Launched by Eidos and Microsoft, Based On 1980s “The Way of the Tiger” Gamebook

    Blockchain technology has managed to thrive cryptocurrency and other industries for its immutability and transparency, making it easy to track ownership and activity of assets. With this benefit, game developers have found a way to ensure players can actually own the assets that they accrue in games. One of the latest games to use blockchain technology is Arena of Death, which is based on the 1980s best-selling gamebook called The Way of the Tiger.

    • Blockchain technology has been integrated to other online games as well, including F1 Delta Time and Gods Unchained.
    • The new game will be called Arena of Death.

    Blockchain technology is being used in a substantial number of industries, and the gaming sector is revving up to combine this fintech with a retro gamebook. The Way of the Tiger, which was a best-selling gamebook in the 1980s, has earned recent attention from the Fabled Lands gamebook firm. Now, according to reports from Cointelegraph, Microsoft and Eidos are working with the firm to launch a blockchain card game, based on the gamebook.

    The press release, which was published on Sunday, December 1st, states that the card game will be based on this best-selling book by Jamie Thomson and Mark Smith. Players will be able to engage in fantasy-based card battles in “Arena of Death,” the new title of this game. Features of the game will include details that were found in the original series.

    Thomson, the CEO of Fabled Lands, chose blockchain tech as the basis for the new game because he believes that it provides better means for his goals within his program than what a traditional video game provides.

    He commented, “We were going to relaunch the series in to a computer game format but this new technology (blockchain) just made more sense. Imagine playing Magic the Gathering but knowing, if you owned a card, it really does belong to you. Or if we say there are only 100 editions of an item or skill, you know there really are only 100 editions.”

    The Vechain blockchain, which has been used in both supply chain management and the management of enterprises, will make it possible for gamers to use non-fungible tokens (NFT). In doing so, ownership of in-game items is easy to track. Thomson noted that the use of this blockchain will allow for in-game items and cards to be created, but “without having to deal with all the crypto stuff.”

    There are many companies and games starting to integrate tokenized assets for games. Towards the end of November, F1 Delta Time recently auctioned F1 car-branded NFTs for their series. F1 Delta Time is known for their world-renowned Formula 1 racing series that ethey licensed.

    A trading card game, Gods Unchained, is based on Ethereum, and they’ve managed to surpass the volume of CryptoKitties. Their surge past CryptoKitties correlated with a censorship problem with Blizzard, a game developer, leading them to nearly half a million NFT transfers daily.
