Knights of Cathena is a revolutionary game, which combines turn based tactics and blockchain technology in a way never attempted before. With it’s seamless blockchain integration, players won’t need any prior knowledge or initial investments to play, which ultimately ensures onboarding of the masses and a joyful introduction to a world full of action packed PvP gameplay fused with NFTs, Tokens and Play & Earn all powered by blockchain technology.
While commanding their army of soldiers players will be drawn into the magical world of Knights of Cathena. Battling other players on a grid-based battlefield in action-packed 3D fights. Strategically positioning fighters, each with its unique strengths and weaknesses, to ensure victory. And earning rewards to open new strategic possibilities with a huge collection of equipable items.
In Knights of Cathena, you can progress in a rank based system consisting of several ranks. Ranks that exist right now are:
Each rank has a certain amount of stars that can be reached. Once collected all stars within your current rank you will promoted to the next one.
Yes, you can. If you lose a match, you will lose one star. If you lose the last star in your current rank you will be demoted to the previous one. But you can always earn your rank back by improving your strategy and displaying your skills on the battlefield.
Keep in mind that this is a feature which will be published with the Beta Client of the game!
Noble Houses function as social hubs. Players can become members of a house to gain advantages in the form of in-game perks. While the owner, hence the lord, of the house earns additional rewards for every match played by its members.
For every item traded on the marketplace or every match played by the members of a house, the owner will receive rewards.
Noble houses come with a leveling system. By leveling a house the member limit increases as well as the level cap for the perk slots within the house.
Yes, of course. You can buy a Noble House Lvl. 0 which you can level up to the max. level of 5.
The approximate release will be in Q1 2023.

Combining a game with blockchain is, at least right now, the only logical way to enable the Play&Earn model for games. We see this as a huge advantage for players and a great innovation for the gaming industry.
We researched several blockchains that would fit our needs. MultiversX was the only one that matched our demand of scalability, security, performance, costs, automation and product quality.
No, you don't need a wallet before hand. As one of our main goal lowering the entry barrier into blockchain gaming space, we hide complex blockchain mechanics as good as possible.
To make the login handling as easy as possible players can simply login using major social providers like Google, Facebook and Apple ID, or traditional email. In the background we will automatically and securely create a wallet for our players and link it with their account. This way players can start playing without the necessity of blockchain knowledge whatsoever.
This basically means playing a game that is fun and were players get rewarded for the time invested into the game. As time is the most valuable resource of our kind, it makes a lot of sense to get rewarded for spending time on our project.
In common Play2Earn (P2E) games, you also get rewarded by playing. But many of them require a certain level of blockchain know-how or initial investment. Additionally, the focus of those games is mainly geared towards the earning part instead on the game design and fun for players. This combination results in less entertaining games that people only play because of the reward-farming aspect.
Knights of Cathena combines both worlds, great game design meets rewarding mechanisms without the need for the player to know anything about underlaying blockchain technology or cryptocurrencies. Within no time at all, they can download the game, login with their social accounts and start playing to get all the benefits without restrictions.
Our goal is to blur the lines between Web2 and Web3 as seamless as possible. Combining great user experience with concepts of profit and ownership will be the key to reach mass adoption for the space which we strive for.
The rewards will be in form of our future ESDT-Token with the name "Cathena Gold" ($CGO). Check out our Litepaper to get all the information about our token.
NFTs (Non-fungible tokens) are unique entities saved on a Blockchain.
In common games the item-economy belongs to the game studio or publisher, which developed the game, but not to the players. In Knights of Cathena every item generated is its own unique NFT, which belongs directly to the player. That is what NFTs enable us to do. Because of this players can do whatever they want with their hard earned in-game values including trading, transferring, renting, etc. In short: True digital ownership.
Every in-game item in Knights of Cathena will be a NFT (Non-fungible token). You can choose if you want to use it on the battlefield to further progress through the ranks or trade them on the in-game marketplace for profit.
Items are level-based, to progress an item to the next level you need to merge three items of the same level to create a new leveled up item. For example, merging three items of level 1 will create one item with level 2.
Additionally, items have a specific rarity. The different rarities are:
The rarer the items are, the more valuable and stronger they are in battle.
Players can buy Item-Chests in our shop which contains a certain amount of NFT-Items. There are a total of four different chests:
Wooden Chest: Containing 5 Items
Silver Chest: Containing 25 Items
Golden Chest: Containing 50 Items
Mystic Chest: Containing 100 items
As chests will be their own NFTs, they can be traded on the marketplace as well.
Knights of Cathena will have it's own in-game marketplace. It will be the trading hub where players can sell and buy items from/to other players. The currency used on the marketplace will be the our ESDT Token "Cathena Gold" ($CGO), which we will create in the future.
Renting your NFT-Items to other players is a feature that will be added in the Beta version of the project.
Since the game is currently in Devnet Alpha, the best way to support is to join the community by playing
the game and, if you like, report bugs to us so we can improve the quality of the project as much as
possible until we launch on the mainnet.
Join our community on our Discord server and participate in the upcoming community events to help grow the project even more.
The token has not been minted yet. There will be a public sale in the future where all players will get equal opportunity of buying a piece of the stake.
Originally we planned on doing an NFT-Presale long before the actual game would be complete. To make it as fair as possible for our playerbase we decided to scratch this idea. While doing so everybody will have equal starting chances.
