Splinterlands, a popular digital collectible card game that operates on the Hive blockchain, has announced the release of its “Land 1.0” expansion. Named “Secrets of Pretoria,” this latest release introduces the concept of land ownership to players, allowing them to make use of new features such as building structures, harvesting resources, crafting new cards and ruling over the virtual world of Pretoria.
The land on offer is broken down into 150 regions, each comprised of 10 parcels of land. Seven territories have also been established, each with 20-22 regions, in order to create distinct zones within the game. The development team behind Splinterlands has invested a lot of effort and resources into creating and releasing the Lands expansion, in order to bring additional depth and excitement to the game.
The addition of land to Splinterlands is the first part of a two-stage release, with the second stage expected to introduce further features that will allow players to stake cards to unlock additional features.
In terms of gameplay, players start by choosing a “Splinter,” which represents a specific faction or tribe, each with its own unique set of cards, abilities and strengths. As players progress, they can acquire new cards and level up existing cards to increase their power. Battles take place on a virtual battlefield, where players must strategically place their cards in order to achieve victory. Each card has its own set of strengths, weaknesses and abilities, which players must take into account when creating their strategy. Meanwhile, Tactics such as buffs and debuffs can also be employed to gain an edge.
It is worth noting that Splinterlands is known for its use of blockchain technology to store in-game assets such as cards. This makes these assets secure, transparent, and resistant to tampering. The game is popular among competitive players, and the community is known for regularly organizing events and tournaments that offer valuable prizes.
