Mobile RTS Wild Forest announced for Ronin
Sky Mavis has announced another thirdparty game for its Ronin blockchain. The first RTS game on the network, Wild Forest is from well-known mobile developer Zillion Whales and will progressively be integrated with existing Sky Mavis accounts and Ronin wallets. Mystic Axie holders and a selection of creators will be granted early access.
Wild Forest is a F2P mobile-based fast-paced PVP deck-builder with card-collecting elements. Players aim is to destroy their opponent’s castle before having their own destroyed. Unlike many RTS-games, the battlefield layout will be contained to a single screen.
With rewards initially based on seasonal leaderboards, web3 features including in-game assets like unit and skin NFTs and the WF token will be enabled in the future.
“We are thrilled to join the Ronin family and admire the warm welcome and support from Sky Mavis. We are excited to bring our strategy games expertise we forged for years to Web3”, said Zillion Whales CEO Andrey Korotkov.
Founded in 2013, Wild Forest developer Zillion Whales has previously released four strategy games, including mobile-based Mushroom Wars 2. In September 2022, mobile games venture Azur Games acquired a majority stake in the company.
Earlier in 2023, Sky Mavis announced Ronin’s expansion plans to launch games from thirdparty developers. Among other titles, those include The Machines Arena from Directive Games and Battle Bears Heroes from SkyVu. The former is currently in open beta launch and Battle Bears Heroes has soft launched on app stores.
