Despite the backlash gaming companies have received for its web3 push, companies are still going strong with their policy of incorporating blockchain aspects with their future projects.
The game is still in its development stage, but it has already gained a lot of attention from gamers and investors alike. With the recent seed round funding, Azra Games will have the necessary resources to continue to develop and improve Legions and Legends.
The company is excited about the future of Legions and Legends and the potential of blockchain technology in the gaming industry.
