Reality Clash

REALITY CLASH AVAILABLE NOW FOR IOS & ANDROID

‘Pokémon Go meets Call of Duty’ mobile AR combat game launches in Australia, New Zealand and Denmark, with more territories to follow

Challenge your mates and go into combat with them!


“… the approach is comparable to how Pokémon GO! placed collectable monsters in real locations, but here we’re talking about something a few degrees more ambitious” –
TheGamingEconomy.com

Innovative mobile AR combat game Reality Clash is now available to download for iOS and Android in Australia, New Zealand and Denmark, with more territories to follow as part of a phased global rollout by UK-based publisher Reality Gaming Group.

Set in an underground world of cryptocurrencies and hackers, the game integrates geo-location technology and uses the latest AR Kit and AR Core technology from Apple and Google, enabling players to compete in real-time battles in unique virtual environments.

Reality Clash offers augmented reality mobile gaming as never seen before, with players navigating a 3D map to defend key parts of their own real-world town, city or village, mine for resources, build or customise unique guns and, most importantly - defeat their friends in this ‘first of a kind’ AR mobile shooter.

Reality Clash has been on the radar of the games business media for some time, with Blockchaingamer.biz highlighting it as one of the ‘Top 10 Most Anticipated Blockchain Games for 2019’.

This initial release in three local markets represents Reality Clash as a minimum viable product (MVP), with more game features and territories to be added on a monthly basis.

“After months of development, our pioneering new game is literally a Reality,” said Reality Gaming Group’s Co-Founder Tony Pearce. “We’ve had thousands of Beta testers providing us with feedback and we’re delighted that we have a game in Reality Clash that is as fun and engaging as it is technically advanced.

“Australia, New Zealand and Denmark are the first territories to see the game go live, and we’ll be rolling out Reality Clash internationally shortly. Let the battles commence!”

Reality Gaming Group ramps dev facilities, hires BAFTA Breakthrough Brit awardee

BAFTA’s Breakthrough Brit awardee Henry Hoffman on board as publisher readies mobile AR combat game Reality Clash

Philippines development hub extended ready for rollout of in-game trading platform

Reality Gaming Group is aggressively expanding its development team ahead of its release of mobile combat game Reality Clash next year.

Fiddlesticks Co-Founder & BAFTA Breakthrough Brit awardee Henry Hoffman joins to work on the underlying technology framework, bringing his wealth of experience and creative talent to what is a complex title that bridges the worlds of games and cryptocurrency and to ensure that gameplay in Reality Clash is as important as the cutting edge technology.

Hoffman was most recently project lead for Fiddlesticks’ Hue, which was published by Curve Digital for Xbox One, PS4, Vita and Steam, winning more than 25 industry awards in the process. On October 26th 2017 he was awarded a BAFTA Breakthrough Brit for his work in the UK game industry.

Hoffman joins Lead Developer Paul Mottram and Executive Producer Ben Hebb of Near Light (both previously of Zoë Mode) on the Reality Clash project, which blends elements of multiplayer, AR and cryptocurrency on iPhone and Android devices.

Reality Gaming Group has also ramped its development hub in the Philippines, which is charged with building out the Reality Clash in-game weapons line-up and its blockchain-based ‘Armory’ weapon trading platform, which is due to come online this winter ahead of the game’s release.

The company recently raised $3.5 million via an innovative ICO (Initial Coin Offering) using Ethereum blockchain technologies to fund the development of the highly-anticipated title, which is due for release in Q3 2017.

Reality Clash is a free-to-play game for iPhone and Android devices that uses the phone’s camera to render an AR view of the world on-screen, with geolocation gameplay encouraging players to enter face-to-face combat with each other in real time.

Combat will take place in real locations – players can invite friends, undertake missions and set up battles in urban areas, parks and woodlands.

“I’m delighted to be joining a great team to work on one of the most ambitious mobile games projects to date – I can’t wait to get started,” said Hoffman. “As soon as I heard that Reality Clash combined AR, crypto and multiplayer I knew it was a game I wanted to be part of. It’s going to bring the world of crypto and gaming together in a way that’s never been attempted before.”

Tony Pearce, Reality Gaming Group co-founder, said: “We were absolutely thrilled with the level of participation in the Reality Clash ICO, and now we’re even more excited to embark on the next stage of that journey – the expansion of our development team as we work towards delivering what is a hugely exciting project. We’re privileged to have a talent like Henry as part of the Reality Gaming Group team.”

Reality Gaming Group Raises $3.5m via ICO token sale to fund development of AR mobile FPS

Reality Clash publisher launches competition to offer investors one-of-a-kind personalised weapon for use in the game

ICO closes September 29th, 2017

Reality Gaming Group has so far raised $3.5 million via an innovative ICO (Initial Coin Offering) to fund the development of its highly-anticipated Augmented Reality (AR) mobile combat game.

The free-to-play game for iPhone and Android devices, due for release in 3Q 2018, will use the phone’s camera to render an AR view of the world on-screen, with geolocation gameplay inviting players to enter face-to-face combat with each other in real time.

Combat will take place in real locations – players can invite friends, join tournaments and set up battles in urban areas, parks and woodlands.

To fund the development of the game, publisher Reality Gaming Group undertook an ICO on August 29th using Ethereum blockchain technologies.
 
The ICO, which runs until September 29th, gives gamers and investors the chance to buy special RCC Gold tokens (the in-game currency) at the rate of only 1/3 of the regular RCC price, obtain exclusive in-game weapons that will never be available again, plus earn access to special tournaments and extras.

The amount raised to date represents a huge success for Reality Gaming Group, which was targeting a minimum of $1.5m.

To celebrate, the publisher has announced a world’s first competition for investors in which they have a chance to win a personalised machine gun for use within the Reality Clash game. Anyone who participates in the ICO will receive an email containing a referral code and link. All deposits that take place via a referral link will earn that referrer a 5% bonus in RCC Gold.

The winner of the competition will be the person who accrues the largest referral balance by the end of the crowdsale, at 5pm UTC on September 29th. To take part, investors simply sign up and deposit any amount of Ether (ETH) to the Reality Clash token sale, and receive a referral link for promotional use.

Those who have already participated in the token sale will automatically receive an email with referral details.

The competition winner will be announced one week after the token sale closes, and referral bonuses will be credited in RCC Gold after the end of the sale.

Tony Pearce, Reality Gaming Group co-founder, said: “We’re absolutely delighted with the response to the Reality Clash ICO, which we believe represents a great new way for game developers and publishers to fund their projects. It also gives gamers a unique opportunity to get into the fast-moving world of ICOs and crypto-currency trading. This competition is a bit of added fun and our way of saying ‘thank you’ to our community of investors.”
