Join us as we take a look at our Discovery of the Day! Whether it’s their impressive artwork, bustling communities or the incredible features planned for their projects, there’s definitely something here just for you! Today we bring you Cryowar!
Start a War
The realm of Solariance’s history is one tainted by bloodshed and brutal conflict. With their existence teetering on the precipice, the Solarians sacrificed all they had to preserve their world and earn the favor of their Gods. Mercifully, the Armistice of Akava seemingly brought the aeons-long war to an end. The four Gods, Sullr, Senemeer, Lavaden and Vigolar, embittered and weary from fighting, ascended to their skyrealms, finally granting the people of Solariance a measure of peace.
10,000 years have passed, and with the Armistice long forgotten and the great oracles of Nastra and Akava mysteriously ‘missing,’ Sullr and Vigolar have emerged from their dreadful sleep to avenge the apparent deaths of their most worthy servants. As the enraged duo reigned terror upon Faragoan’s Kingdom, Senemeer and Lavaden returned from the Astral Plane to quell their aggression. The old Armistice is indeed null and void, and growing rumblings within the Astral Plane herald the rise of new Gods eager to join in glorious battle. Welcome…to the Cryowar!
If the lore isn’t enough to get you pumped up for this Discovery of the Day, then I’d wager nothing can move you. Cryowar is a next-gen Blockchain-based multiplayer game built on top of the Solana Ecosystem. Harnessing the power of the Unreal Engine 4 and available across several different platforms, Cryowar boasts exhilarating gameplay, crisp visuals and a rewards system that favors skill over bank balance. Yes, you read right—absolutely nothing in the Cryowar in-game store will give players any kind of competitive advantage over their opponents. In other words, everyone fights on an even playing field, and only skill will determine who moves up the ranks.
Another integral part of Cryowar’s mechanics is its short match times. Battles typically last no longer than 3 minutes at a time, allowing players to participate in quick games whenever they want from virtually anywhere. Players will also find that they will need to rapidly adapt their strategies and playing styles—since Cryowar randomly cycles through a pool of level objectives at the start of every match and changes them on the fly, players can never get too comfortable or resort to gimmicks in order to succeed in battle. In short, whatever the game throws at you, be ready for it.
According to the Cryowar site, four different game modes will form the basis of Cryowar:
- Last Man Standing - Survive all the way to the end and vanquish your foes
- Deathmatch - An all-out slugfest where everyone is your enemy
- Top Score in 5 Minutes - Gain as many points as possible in 5 minutes
- Battle Arena - Player versus Player where the best warrior takes the crown
Meet the Heroes of Solariance
Cryowar has three different classes of heroes, each with their own combat style, skills and backstory. Let’s take a brief look at each now:
The ACS Heavy is a veritable walking fortress with unprecedented might and resolve, who combines ancient tactics with the unmatched fury of the Gods
The Valkyrie is named after the mythical Norse maidens who carried the souls of worthy fallen warriors to Valhalla. Their precise and lightning-quick movements allow them to make short work of their adversaries, slashing them to ribbons in mere seconds
The Centurion is a Holy Warrior skilled with both sword and pistol. He righteously wields the Gods’ technology, cleansing all heretics in a hailstorm of sanctimonious gunfire
The Heart and Soul of Cryowar
Cryowar is an ambitious project that aims high. Herewith a summary of some of its key features and most noteworthy aspects:
- Multiplayer NFT - Cryowar is a real-time multiplayer PvP arena NFT game utilizing the Unreal Engine on the Solana Network
- Amalgam - Cryowar combines the best parts of traditional gaming with the innovative features of Blockchain technology including DAO voting, NFTs and Decentralized Finance (DeFi)
- Deflationary - The game’s ecosystem will make use of a deflationary mechanism that integrates staking with gameplay, giving RPG stakers the ability to earn better rewards by increasing their in-game skill and experience levels
- Multi-Blockchain Medieval Metaverse - The ultimate goal of Cryowar is to create a Multi-Blockchain Medieval Metaverse without boundaries
- Game Mechanics - Cryowar is a cross-platform multiplayer game that will eventually feature up to 8 unique character and focus on skill-based gameplay in order to reward players accordingly
What Battles Await Cryowar?
Since the beginning of 2021, the team behind Cryowar has already achieved several milestones, though the Private sale from Q3 is still seemingly ongoing and the Public Sale is yet to be announced. Despite these apparent delays, Cryowar’s team is still hard at work to bring the game to players sooner rather than later. The Official Release is slated for release in Q4 of 2021, so hopefully we’ll all get the chance to check out some gameplay in the very near future.
Take a look at the full Roadmap available in the Cryowar Whitepaper below

The Judgment of the Gods
Cryowar have certainly spent a huge amount of time developing their offering and have built up a substantial following on their Discord , Telegram and Twitter pages. Good things take time, and while the team has made huge progress, there are obviously several integral components that need to be fine-tuned before anything is officially released.
