The National Football League, NFL Players Association, and Mythical Games are partnering for NFL Rivals.
Here’s how Mythical Games describes the game according to Game Freaks 365:
Delivering on the fantasy of being a team General Manager, this fun, easy to play game will allow NFL fans and gamers alike to compete against other GMs with their assembled player rosters and teams, building, leveling up, and improving their lineup. In addition, fans will be able to own, collect and trade non-fungible tokens (NFTs) of their favorite players through this play-and-own game experience.
Ahead of the launch of NFL Rivals in early 2023, the company is releasing 32 limited-quantity collections of unique generative 3D NFL franchise-themed NFTs as part of a series of drops called “Rarity League.” This officially-licensed collection provides owners access to special events, in-game rewards, and other unique features.
This is the latest play-to-earn game and it obviously has a pretty big entity backing it in the form of the NFL. Whether gamers have any interest in an NFL NFT-based game is another matter.
