Best Games for August, Burberry into Blankos & Hashmasks Moves into Gaming - Play to Earn #85
This week: Axie Infinity, Splinterlands, Hashmasks, Gala Games, Sorare and Doctor Who!
August has started and we published our list of games to watch for the month. At the same time lots of gaming projects are making noise. Some launch partnerships with fashion brands, others launch new tools to improve the user experience for content creators. I’ve worked in the gaming industry for more than 10 years, and new developments happened in console cycles. However, with the openness of blockchain technology there’s a constant flow of novelty. Unseen in the history of interactive entertainment. This industry is exciting from a consumer point-of-view, because is rewarding and empowering. But even from a media point-of-view there’s so much happening. This week, again, we hope to bring you all the relevant news, so you are up-to-date about the NFT and play-to-earn gaming industry. Have a nice weekend! — Robert Hoogendoorn
But first a word from our sponsor…

Announced a while ago, but now Burberry is actually launching their NFTs for Blankos Block Party next week. The Blanko NFT is very limited in supply, only 750 editions. Unfortunately this comes with a serious price tag. — How much for that exclusive Blankos?
We are waiting for land gameplay, but first Axie Infinity will introduce a new battle system. Players will for example have the ability to upgrade the powers of their Axies. Nothing is set in stone yet, but Sky Mavis is working on a major overhaul. — Read more about the future of Axie
This week Splinterlands launched their SPS token. With it, they also introduced a SPS Management Dashboard. Quite frankly, it’s brilliant. I love the way it works and how it connects assets from multiple chains into one interface. Job well done! — Learn more about staking SPS tokens
You never expected us to write about Hashmasks, right? Me neither. But they are now planning to expand their efforts, and build a play-to-earn game. Now that’s interesting! — Discover about their plans
While Ethereum was doing a hard-fork, Gala Labs decided it was better to postpone the launch of their NFT avatars. Vox will now launch next week! — Continue reading about Vox
I’m very bullish on Sorare. They will start making their push towards mainstream soon. This will open up a whole new hype cycle for these fantasy football NFTs — Read the whole story
