Time Raiders is a shooter looter game with Play-to-Earn (P2E) elements that is being developed on the Polygon blockchain. Players may win rewards in the form of NFTs as well as the game's native currency, XPND.


The game is currently in the Beta testing phase and revolves around a time-traveling shoot and loot style gameplay where in-game assets are dropped as loot. Let's take a closer look at its gameplay elements and the NFTs within its ecosystem.

Overview & Gameplay

Time Raiders is set in the future and players will be able to travel across different settings in time to access various levels, including Medieval Europe (Knights and Lords), Edo Period Japan (Samurai), and even the Prehistoric Era (Dinosaurs). However, the original main setting of the game will take place in World War II Era Europe, with the player facing off against the Nazis.


Initially, players will start off with a basic character that is fully customizable and upgradeable. Players can also recruit companions of different classes, each one with class-specific weapons, items, and abilities. These classes are Commando, Sniper, Heavy, Spy, Engineer, Chemist and Assassin.

The player character and their companions can be upgraded and customized with new gear, weapons, and items. Certain companions also give the player access to certain regions, which could encourage players to explore every character and companion class in order to experience the game in its entirety.


Similar to strategy games like Divinity Original Sin and Dragon Age: Inquisition, some levels will require a specific combination of character classes to discover rare and unique items.

The combat mechanics of the game revolve around a run-and-gun style where players shoot up waves of different enemies who drop loot that can be sold, traded, and used in-game. Bosses drop the most valuable loot as well as give the player a chance to earn a production facility that generates in-game assets for the player to use in their missions.


Facilities include mines, munitions factories, labs, and production facilities which need to be built and maintained using in-game staff. Players can stake Xpendium and their NFTs in the facilities and unique resources will be produced based on the facility's specialty.

In-Game NFT Assets

In-game assets exist as Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) that can be earned, traded, sold, or staked for Xpendium, the game's utility token. Despite this, players don't need to purchase an NFT to get started, instead, they start off with a basic character that they can use to earn in-game items, all of which are NFTs.


These NFT assets come in different rarities and include consumables, vehicles, and weapons. Initial in-game items include WW2 Era planes, tanks, boats, and weapons as well as prehistoric animals, dinosaur eggs, and special characters.
