Warena, the first personalized and play-to-earn NFT metaverse game, secured over $1.5 million in their latest fundraising efforts from renowned blockchain investors Genesis Builders, DAOMaker, Master Ventures, Momentum 6, Animoca, Polygon, Clovers Ventures, Infinity Capital & more.
Warena gives you everything you want from an NFT game. It’s a play-to-earn metaverse that allows you to personalize your in-game characters and interact with characters from other universes like Cat Gunner and Axie Infinity in Warena combat games. Warena features thrilling action-survival gameplay where human and zombie teams face off against each other in a zombie apocalypse scenario. Players can choose to inhabit different lands, trade warriors & NFTs, battle against each other, and play in tournaments.
The Warena NFT game will be released in two phases. Phase 1 will take place in Q3 of 2021 and will see the launch of the 2D tower defense game. It’s a survival, player-vs-environment game that will require players to defend against the oncoming army of zombies. Phase 2 is set to launch in Q2 2022 and will unlock the full force of the Warena metaverse with player-versus-player features.
Today, Warena closed its latest round of fundraising after securing $1,250,000 from some of the biggest blockchain investors in the industry. The aim of the fundraising was to generate enough capital to continue the development of the Warena eco-system. Warena wants to ensure they can continue to work with top-notch game developers and blockchain experts so they can create a metaverse that engages their community of gamers while earning them real value.
Furthermore, Warena understands the huge strategic benefits that come from partnering with blockchain incubators like Genesis Builders. The collective wisdom and experience from their new partners can be used to help them make the first personalized, #playtoearn #NFT #metaverse game a true success.

Warena is not your usual NFT game, as it instead combines two current trends: Play-to-Earn and Metaverse. High personalization with the ability to engage and interact with characters from other universes (such as Cat Gunner and Axie Infinity) makes Warena one of the countervailing strategy games to be on the lookout for. Warena will be released over two phases. Phase 1 will take place in Q3 of 2021 and will see the launch of a 2D tower defense game, pitting the player against hordes of oncoming zombies in a Player vs Environment situation. Phase 2 is set to launch in Q2 2022 and will unlock the full potential of the Warena metaverse with Player-vs-Player features.
