Auckland, New Zealand — The Solana blockchain-based play-to-earn game Battle Drones is launching its nonfungible token (NFT) collection sale today at 8 pm UTC. The limited collection will only have 1,000 NFTs, which will be minted in two different sales, and the NFT obtained will hold substantial value as a store of value and for its utility both in and beyond the game.

Battle Drones is a player-versus-environment, player-versus-player (PvP), play-to-earn (P2E) gaming project. The PC drone-shooter game is built by gamers and intended for gamers, with a focus on fun gameplay and an immersive experience. 

To further enhance this experience, Battle Drones features in-game NFT assets powered by the BATTLE token that can be earned as a collection or traded. The game will also be offering an NFT marketplace soon, and the BATTLE token powering the Battle Drones ecosystem will have an initial decentralized exchange offering in late May.

The NFTs minted during the sales will act as a customizable in-game Battle Drone character, consisting of drone parts that alter in-game mechanics. Many of these drone parts will be exclusive to the sale.

NFTs minted during the sale will be 3D, and holders will receive exclusive early access to the game released toward the end of June.

The NFTs also unlock all P2E mechanics and provide access to PvP game mode, which will be exclusive to drone holders.

Furthermore, expanding on the utility of these tokens, developers have enabled these NFTs for staking and loaning on the platform.

Starting today, the wave-two whitelist presale begins, during which whitelist tokenholders can mint NFTs. Whitelist tokens will be airdropped exclusively on Battle Drones’ Discord channels starting Monday, following a tokenholders’ snapshot, and one whitelist token will allow each tokenholder to mint one NFT. The only way to mint more than one in the presale is to hold a wave-one drone at the time of the snapshot. 

The price of minting one of the limited 1,000 NFTs is set at 1.2 Solana (SOL), and NFTs left unminted during the presale will be minted during the public sale. 

The public sale of Battle Drones NFTs begins tomorrow, April 22, at 8:00 AM UTC. Each NFT will be minted at 1.5 SOL.

All 10,00 NFTs will be minted through the Battle Drones website.

Ahmad Duais, CEO of Battle Drones, said, “We are super excited for our limited 1,000-NFT drop. These NFTs will be a great early investment into the Battle Drones ecosystem, being very scarce and a part of the initial pool of tradable assets.”

Going forward, all developments regarding the sales will be discussed on Battle Drones’ social channels. In order to obtain a whitelist token and be a part of the exclusive whitelist presale, one can follow the steps mentioned in the game’s Discord channels.
