Pixelmon Brings Fully Decentralized Monster IP Vision to Immutable

Published

on

The partnership with Immutable propels Pixelmon’s roadmap to create the first
community-owned monster-battling universe

SYDNEY, Feb. 12, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Immutable, the leading web3 gaming platform and ecosystem, today announced a partnership with LiquidX, the studio behind revitalized battle arena game Pixelmon, which is set to launch on the recently released Immutable zkEVM. The LiquidX team aims to build the world’s first truly decentralized intellectual property (IP) for monster capture and combat, beginning with a four-part relaunch roadmap.

As the second-highest gaming NFT by transaction volume on OpenSea, anticipation for Pixelmon remains high amongst web3 gamers. Under new leadership from LiquidX co-founder Giulio Xiloyannis, Pixelmon is gearing up to deliver a fast-paced monster combat experience. Xiloyannis brings over a decade of experience leading digital brands, like Zalora, to assemble Pixelmon’s core developer team and energize its community of over 200,000 followers.

To power its ambitious roadmap, Pixelmon will be built on Immutable zkEVM, powered by Polygon, receiving custom smart contract support, advanced gameplay mechanics and tokenomics, and an efficient trading experience – a key pain point for the industry. Built specifically for gaming, Immutable zkEVM simplifies the web3 game development process by allowing developers to leverage existing developer kits and tools, easing the transition into web3 game building.

Xiloyannis commented on today’s news, “This partnership marks a major milestone for us as we bring Pixelmon Battle Arena to our dedicated community of players,” said Pixelmon CEO Giulio Xiloyannis. “By collaborating with Immutable and implementing their zkEVM, a new EVM-compatible zk-rollup powered by Polygon technology and with full Immutable platform support, we are addressing a key pain point in the gaming experience – the seamless execution of in-game transactions.”

Pixelmon’s relaunch roadmap is divided into four stages, beginning with releasing hypercasual web games, then enabling PvP and PvE combat modes. This will lead to an open-world RPG launch and ultimately, a fully decentralized multiplayer metaverse owned by the Pixelmon community. Specifically, the stage will rollout as follows:

Stage One: Hypercasual games – Kevin The Adventurer (release in Q4 2023) 
and
PixelPals, set for launch later this monthStage Two: Battle Arena Mode – enables players to pit Pixelmon against each other in
PvP combat and in PVE horde combat modeStage Three: Hunting Ground – open-world RPG gameplay and an airdrop for 
the game’s governance tokenStage Four: Fully decentralized multiplayer open-world adventure and monster combat
arena

Robbie Ferguson, President and Co-Founder of Immutable, added, “We’re incredibly excited to be welcoming one of the most anticipated web3 games to Immutable zkEVM. Pixelmon is an incredible turn-around story, and is focusing on delivering their flagship title with a seamless user experience. They are one of the main games I would be looking at to help drive mainstream activity in 2024.”

To reward their long-time supporters, Pixelmon plans to launch a Right-of-Game (ROG) system tied to its Generation One NFT collection. By using these NFTs in-game, holders will unlock special in-game rewards and benefits.
