This is a brief update on some Wasteland developments and upcoming events. Next week, we will be releasing the Trophy Truck — the third vehicle in the mid-grade lineup. Some optimizations for the game engine and client will also be included in the release. In addition to that, we have significantly improved the Gas Alert bot and the account section of the website. However, some things, like crafting, are delayed due to the urgent performance fixes.
This month’s volatility has shaken the post-apocalyptic crypto markets. A lot of the riders are hungry for coins, and it’s time to get back what they lost. Benzene (BZN) is the only currency they can scavenge in the Wasteland, which is full of dangerous residents not showing any mercy for anyone.
Can you survive in a hostile environment full of supercharged war machines and overheating weapons, or is it a suicide mission? The all-new War Truck, improved Dune Buggy performance, increased base health of the Hovercrafts, the newly built road network and improved physics should help you along the way.
It’s been a busy few months for us as we have been cooking up a lot of great stuff. Ethereum gas prices are still insanely high, and we are working very hard to deliver affordable transactions and improved gaming experience to you in the shortest amount of time. In addition to the high gas prices, we have seen a number of players complain about the balance in the game. So, the two biggest improvements that are coming to War Riders in the next couple of months are crafting and Immutable X launch. However, there are also a lot…
War Riders has always been about pushing boundaries in blockchain-based gaming. Our NFTs are an incredible innovation with unlimited possibilities, but current gas + scaling limitations have prevented us from realizing our vision. At WR, we believe that scaling needs to happen without compromising on decentralization or moving off the Ethereum network.
When exploring the possible scaling opportunities we considered the following:
Unfortunately, existing solutions didn’t fulfill these needs.
What Is Immutable…

The Wasteland is evolving, and more things are appearing in our post-apocalyptic world. The residents desperately need more infrastructure, parking space and, most importantly, passive income. The OG garage has recently popped in the Wasteland with little to no restrictions on how it can…
Chainlink and War Riders™ today announced that human-readable usernames can now be used to handle deposits and withdrawals from a smart contract live on the Ethereum network. The new system ensures that a human-readable account name can withdraw blockchain assets to the right ETH address which can be changed at will off-chain and still be reliably identified during withdrawal through the use of Chainlink oracles and the War Riders API.
The system is a major breakthrough in helping dApps and other blockchain-enabled applications such as games achieve mainstream adoption because it retains the benefits of on-chain security while gaining off-chain…
When the apocalypse finally comes, you will be well prepared. You mastered driving supercharged vehicles in the Wasteland without being killed. You mounted machine guns to your chassis like a pro. Now it’s time to move to the final stage of the pre-alpha testing: Weapon Swaps.
But wait, aren’t we canceling the events due to COVID-19? The beauty of blockchain-based games is that they can be played from the comfort of your home, where there is no coronavirus. And, since you will be spending more time in your house this spring because of the pandemic, the…
