Phase II release with "Fortnite-like" world to go live in April 2022
MixMob's gameplay displays the dystopian world where a malevolent master AI has destroyed human culture. MixMob's players are tasked with joining a creative resistance movement to restore the lost civilization.
In December 2021, MixMob sold out thousands of Gen Zero Masks, mutable NFTs that verify players' unique identity within MixMob's gameplay.
The ongoing MixMob stage of progress—Phase I—works like a card game strategy. The upcoming Phase II will invite its players to a full-fledged gaming ecosystem inspired by Fortnite's virtual world.
