The Elrond cryptocurrency project has announced a multiplayer mobile game featuring blockchain features, which will launch through the Galaxy Store exclusively for Samsung’s blockchain smartphones including the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 series.

Although it’s not a decentralized app (DApp), Battle of Elrond will contain blockchain components and players will be able to earn ERD tokens by playing the game. Support for ERD tokens was added to Samsung’s Blockchain KeyStore Wallet in November. Battle of Elrond players will be able to earn ERD in-game by defeating enemies, although details are scarce and it’s unclear how exactly the system works.

Judging by the official teaser trailer below, the game has a top-down camera perspective and pits two teams of five players against each other. There seems to be an upgrade component to the game, whereby players can improve their character’s stats by purchasing new equipment. It looks more like a pure arena PVP game rather than a MOBA-style tower defense.

Battle of Elrond is scheduled for launch on the Galaxy Store by the end of the first quarter. The developer claims that blockchain technology reduces costs and delivers better security and privacy. These benefits exist ‘without the intricate blockchain-specific hassle’ and the developer believes that these characteristics ‘will likely catapult adoption.’
