Time to sip some eggnog while enjoying your favorite blockchain game. The holiday season is the perfect time to partake in your favorite games and perhaps earn some extra income.
Currently, many development teams are quiet, but there’s still plenty of activity in the blockchain gaming space. Today, Binance announces the “Cryptmas Metaverse Mystery Box Collection” for eight games. Meanwhile, Bored Ape Yacht Club reveals the possible launch date of its mobile game. The top blockchain gaming news for today include:
1 – The Fabled Teases Knight Class Gameplay
Action rpg The Fabled has given a few details of the Knight class gameplay. In a tweet, the game revealed that a Knight could gain some benefits for engaging enemies in combat. There’s a chance that enemies will drop items and weapons that could be used against the boss found at the end of each world. Seems like it’s a good idea to smash enemies in the hopes of getting useful items to help in those final boss fights.

I apologize sincerely. I want to make it clear that I did not resign and will not plan to do so. The purpose of the statement is to address my past mistakes and self-reflection towards the issues you have brought to us. After going through countless messages sent to me, I’ve realised how strong, loyal and united our community is towards this project.”
