What Is Age of Tanks (AOT)?
Age of Tanks is a blockchain-based 3D strategy card game that aims to provide an immersive metaverse experience. The gaming platform aims to allow players to assemble tanks and teams and engage in digital battles within the game. The platform states that games are an integral part of human life as they help nurture and discover the hidden abilities of individuals and society. Age of Tanks seeks to deliver a gaming experience that would have a positive and lasting impact on the players. To achieve this, the platform allows players to build strategies and teams to establish their legacies.
Age of Tanks is built on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) protocol to enable advanced blockchain and DeFi features on the platform. As per the whitepaper, the game is inspired by blockchain game platforms like Hearthstone and Axie Infinity and is designed to offer the best features of both games. Moreover, the platform claims that the game has depth and complexity designed to attract elements of a truly decentralized ecosystem as well as those looking for a pure and competitive gaming experience.
The game is set in Planet Earth Zero, in the year 23100. According to the platform, the game is set in an era when the ozone layer does not exist, and oceans have turned into sand dunes—all due to a singular event called the ‘2nd Impact.’ The game includes comets, missiles, tanks, and a fight for supremacy over the planet.
AOT is the native cryptocurrency of the Age of Tanks ecosystem. Players need the AOT token to access, play the game, and perform various tasks within the game, including staking their tokens for entering player-versus-player (PvP) battles and achieving top ranking. Players can also claim staking rewards by holding AOT tokens. In addition, ecosystem participants can use AOT to participate in network governance.
