Reality Gaming Group has partnered with eSports app Gizer to offer tournament play for its mobile AR combat game, Reality Clash.
The partnership means Reality Clash players will be able to create and host tournaments, win prizes, generate team sponsorship, chat, leverage a built-in marketplace for in-game items and maintain a profile identity on the blockchain.
Reality Clash is a free-to-play game set to be released for iPhone and Android devices in 3Q18 that uses the phone’s camera to render an AR view of the world on-screen, with geolocation gameplay encouraging players to enter face-to-face combat with each other in real time.
The Gizer app is available on both the App store and Google Play store.
Morten Rongaard, Reality Gaming Group Co-Founder, said: “We are excited to leverage Gizer to assist in building our fun, competitive community. With their cutting edge platform we can offer Reality Clash players competitive tournaments for prizes and sponsorship.
“Gizer offers a social element, a marketplace element, and a profile identity on the blockchain. We look forward to working with the Gizer team, rolling out group tournaments and bringing AR content to their community.”
Jonathan Kerstein, Gizer Co-Founder, added: “Reality Clash is the type of envelope-pushing game we’re excited to work with for a number of reasons. Their use of AR in the mobile combat space will immediately broaden the selection of games available to the Gizer community. Our partnership will also enable Reality Clash’s existing community to leverage Gizer’s event creation and discovery infrastructure, forming their own vibrant community within the Global Gaming Network from day one.”
Reality Gaming Group recently ramped its development team with the hire of Fiddlesticks Co-Founder & BAFTA Breakthrough Brit awardee Henry Hoffman to work on the game’s underlying technology framework.
The company also expanded its development hub in the Philippines, which is charged with building the Reality Clash in-game weapons line-up. The blockchain-based ‘Armory’ trading platform is being handled by the original brain behind Reality Clash, co-founder Morten Rongaard.
