Azra Games Introduces Play Forever Pass NFTs on Magic Eden's Ethereum Launchpad for Upcoming “Legions & Legends” Game

By: WebWire

Today, Web3 game studio Azra Games ('the Company”) revealed plans to launch its first NFT collection, “The Hopeful,” on Magic Eden, the leading community-centric NFT marketplace, on September 28. The Hopeful will serve as PFPs (profile pictures) and will be part of the upcoming Azra Games universe, and will grant holders special Azra Games community benefits and perks.

Holders of The Hopeful NFTs will be entitled to private Discord channels with unparalleled access to the Azra team, early beta access to Azra titles, and other yet-to-be disclosed benefits designed to surprise and delight.

“Azra's first NFT art collection is inspired by the pioneering spirit of the Web3 community and the shared aspiration of hope for the promise of Web3,” stated Azra Games CEO and Founder Mark Otero. “Our collection's name The Hopeful reflects both that promise and the spirit. The graphic novel art style is a tribute to the golden age of comics where Azra's Paul Martin, a former Marvel comic artist, led the finaling style. We are excited to partner with Magic Eden to bring our mint to all the crypto hopefuls.”

Legions & Legends will be the first game coming from Azra Games, which recently closed a $15 million seed round from Andreessen Horowitz, NFX, and other leading gaming and Web3 investors. The Collectibles and Combat RPG game is set in a sci-fi fantasy universe, in which players command Legions in a new battle experience, craft massive War Machines, trade in-game NFT collectibles and earn rewards in a first-of-its-kind in-game economy.

Ken Walton, VP of Growth at Azra Games commented on today's news: “Ethereum has needed a high quality launchpad like Magic Eden, and we are thrilled to be able to use it to mint The Hopeful. This initial collection is special for our studio, and we are excited to partner with the talented people at Magic Eden.”

“The Hopeful” are employees and misfits of the Genesis Merchant Company - the intrepid explorers, miners, scrappers and traders who discovered the Corvus Galaxy featured in Legions & Legends. Holders of this genesis collection will get the earliest opportunity to beta test the game.

"We're excited to mint The Hopeful collection on Magic Eden's Launchpad and give our community first-look access to the magical universe that the Azra Games team is creating. Gaming is a huge focus of ours and we're thrilled to be working with Azra's team of experienced builders to make further inroads in Web3 gaming,” stated Jack Lu, CEO and Co-Founder of Magic Eden.

Magic Eden recently expanded to the Ethereum blockchain in August 2022. As part of the company's cross-chain expansion, Magic Eden introduced the Magic Eden List (an allowlist/whitelist management tool that allows creators to build collection interest), cross-chain drop calendar (a holistic view of the ecosystem's most exciting upcoming mints), and cross-chain Launchpad (which allows users to seamlessly mint in SOL, ETH, and Credit Card).
