Ascenders offers a very large world with many different areas, each with a different level of difficulty. Players are guided through the world by a thrilling story in which they search for resources in the form of NFTs. NFTs then give a unique opportunity to build buildings in certain areas, which can then be used by others. Outside of the regular world, there are also plenty of dungeons that players can venture into to claim their rewards.
There are tournaments being held in the dungeons where players can compete against each other. The special event “Battle for Land” is one of the most exclusive, as the winner receives a piece of land.
The minimum system requirements revealed by the already launched “Combat Challenge” are:
Operating system: Windows 10, 64-bit required
Processor: Quad-core processor, 3 GHz or faster
Memory: 16 GB RAM

Storage will vary for the full game. “Combat Challenge” only gives us access to a limited demo of the game.
The AGC token is the driving force behind the Ascenders ecosystem. It promises us some of the most significant and diverse rewards for staking. AGC supply is limited. AGC holders can participate in the governance of the DAO. Members manage the Ascenders game pool and vote on proposals for new features, game system changes, and other things that benefit the long-term growth of the Ascenders ecosystem.
Glow Gems (GG) are the fuel of the project. GGs are earned through various in-game activities and are used to create everything from swords to cities to permanent societies. They also represent the in-game currency, which is used for all basic activities, including building, crafting, upgrading, or buying player-made items from the GG marketplaces, and there is no limited supply.
