Join the Rebelbots resistance
Rebel Bots, an upcoming NFT game to launch on the Polygon blockchain, announced today it has secured investments from top tier investors including Ubisoft, Overwolf, and Makers fund, via a $2M private token sale following a prior $2M seed round investment.
The successful private round closed ahead of the upcoming public launch of the RBLS governance token which will be held at the end of January 2022.
Unlike many blockchain games, Rebel Bots have captured the interest of the non-crypto sector and the majority of private round investors come from the gaming and entertainment sectors.
Joining the previously mentioned Ubisoft, Overwolf, and Makers Fund includes investors such as Remagine Ventures and LD Capital.
The Rebel Bots first title, Xoil Wars is a skilled-based, sci-fi-themed digital card battle game that allows players to battle and compete against other players.
Successful players are rewarded with game resources which then allows them to build new, more advanced robotic soldier characters in the form of NFTs, progress, and rank higher in leaderboards for season prizes.
This successful funding round comes a few months after the Rebel Bots initial game-related NFT collection was sold out in August, which allowed the team to build an engaged community and generated an additional $1 million for the game development.
Since selling out, the collection has seen increasing transaction volume through the Opensea marketplace. Buyers are driven by the utility of owning the NFT, as every Rebel Bot owner will be able to form his own kingdom within the game. Further details about the game can be found on the newly launched Rebel Bots Xoil Wars game website.
The upcoming game is developed on Unity and will be launched on both web and mobile platforms in Q2 this year. The makers, who have years of experience in developing social games for mobile, aspire to make their new game suitable for all gaming fans, with fast onboarding for new players and rich gameplay with integrated player-to-player social interaction features.
In addition to the Rebel Bots NFT collection available on Opensea, the company will release the player NFT collections including 150,000 NFT land plots, which will be sold together as a package with 3 fighting bot NFTs which act as the playable characters in the game.
The land sale will take place in February and allows each player who purchases the NFT bundle to be one of the first to enter the game. The team says these land NFTs will be sold at a very affordable price to ensure every player will be able to purchase the NFTs required to enter and play the game upon release.
With this investment announced today the team behind the Rebel Bots believe they can become one of the biggest names in the fast-growing play to earn space.
