The multi-year deal will bring a blend of blockchain gaming and digital entertainment, delivering the Web3 gaming experience to the largest eSports communities worldwide.
Guild Of Guardians
Guild of Guardians is a multi-player, can’t, fantasy, action Role Play Game (RPG) published by Immutable Games Studio and developed by Stepico Games. Since starting development in mid-2020, Guild of Guardians has attracted a passionate community of over 220,000 followers across Email, Twitter, and Discord.
According to its Whitepaper, the platform intends to spearhead the future of Non-Fungible Token (NFT) gaming by demonstrating excellence in the following areas:
- Fun mobile RPG gameplay: Guild of Guardians will be fun and compelling. We plan to have a combination of action RPG, deep strategy, a dynamic trading economy metagame, and social-focused gameplay that will keep players engaged for years.
- Play-and-earn mechanics: Guild of Guardians will have a deep and sustainable economy where players can play for free and earn NFTs and tokens. Just like the real world economy, you can choose how you want to specialize or play within the Guild of Guardians Economy.
- Community-driven incentives: We understand the value that a community brings to the game. Guild of Guardians will involve and reward the community for contributing to the growth. It will empower creators to build long-term businesses in the Guild of Guardians metaverse.
- Highly accessible: Guild of Guardians will be available on iOS and Android, making it hyper-accessible to everyone. The underlying technology will be based on Immutable X, allowing players to eventually enjoy instant and gas-free trading without even knowing they are using the blockchain.
Are You Ready, Sports Fans?
The eight eSports team will become fully-playable characters in the Guild of Guardians’ fantasy world and will also leverage NFTs to offer eSports characters to fans as digital collectibles on the proof-of-stake blockchain platform Immutable X.
Commenting on the partnership, Derek Lau, VP & Game Director for Guild of Guardians, said:

The partnership gives eSports fans more exciting options to support and engage with their favorite teams and players. The announcement shows fans can represent their teams in-game using digital assets. This partnership also gives fans true ownership, allowing them
“to create, own, and trade their digital assets, in addition to competing against others to earn rewards.”- PR Newswire
eSports Move To Guild Of Guardians
The developers interpret this move as a landmark partnership for the entire gaming industry. The plan is to incentivize a win-win, symbiotic cycle of success between sports teams, their fans, and, in turn, Guild of Guardians, creating long-term collaboration rather than extraction.
Their Web3 approach involves partnering on co-marketing and activations by aligning team incentives with outcomes. Rather than spending billions on traditional marketing, rewards are proportional to a team’s contribution to Guild of Guardian’s success.
How Will It Work?
Guild of Guardians plans to implement the integration in three phases:
Phase 1: IP Integration
Integrate the eSport brands into the universe of Guild of Guardians. Playable characters are either exclusively sold or will be made exclusively available to players in the game.
Phase 2: Leaderboard Competitions
Guild of Guardians will not stream live gameplay or Esport hosted in stadiums (at least not for a while!). Instead, there will be a democratized eSport system. Anyone can participate and compete as part of global leaderboard systems. Players and guilds can compete for leaderboard rewards. There is also talk of “factions” where players align themselves to an eSport IP a faction). These eight factions will compete and either win or lose.
Phase 3: New Content / Modes
They plan to add new content and modes that incorporate social cooperation and competition between players and guilds through Guilds. These will tie into the Esport factions and tournament-like systems.
