Pulsar, an upcoming AAA sci-fi game on the Avalanche blockchain, launched its Genesis Land Mint on September 21, 2022. According to the team, the public supply is highly limited. However, Mint Pass holders do not have supply caps.
The Mint Pass NFTs went live on September 14, and closed on September 21 (marking the start of the Land mint). The passes function like vouchers that provide benefits including exclusive drops, discounts, and in-game items.
Let’s take a look at the details of the Land mint.
Land is a vital element in accumulating wealth in Pulsar. The four types of Land are Barren Sands, Glacier Wastelands, Obsidian Badlands, and Crimson Hollow. Every category possesses varying raw materials and attributes.
Players can set their desired attributes for each type of Land.
- Security Level: A Land’s security level determines the Raw Material’s Resource Rarity, as well as the amount of $PLSR found in the virtual property. Land parcels with lower Security Levels will possess more rare Resources and larger amounts of $PLSR. However, it is more vulnerable to enemy invasions.
- Resource Types: 16 types of Raw Materials are present in various land types. Players can use these resources to build, craft, and upgrade other NFTs.
- Map Sizes: Landowners can choose from four Land sizes: 2×2, 4×4, 8×8, and 16×16. Along with Security Level, the map size determines the amount of resources and $PLSR found on the plot of Land.
- Mint Price: A combination of all the Land traits will decide the mint price of a selected Land. The pricing goes higher as owners set higher attributes. A bigger, more secure land with rare resources, will definitely cost a lot more.
What’s Next for Pulsar?
Land minting will run until September 28, 2022.
Pulsar is also scheduled to release the Genesis $PLSR Mining Units on September 24. This batch includes $PLSR Miners, $PLSR Refineries, Mobile Depots, and Motherships.
On the 1st of October, the team will drop Genesis Unit Packs. The package includes Spider Tanks, Resource Miners, and Resource Refineries. Pulsar’s on-chain build is also slated to go live on October 15 to introduce the PvE gameplay. This will be followed by the addition of expansion packs before the end of 2022.
The game is inspired by iconic strategy games such as Command & Conquer and StarCraft. Leveraging Avalanche Network’s blockchain technology, the game also utilizes elements of Free-to-Play and Play-to-Own (click here to read about the difference between P2E and P2O).
In Pulsar, players can also own NFTs of Land, Buildings, and Units. Owners can use the assets to extract, refine resources, and earn the in-game currency $PLSR.
