That’s right, Beetroot Labs have teamed up with the mixed martial artist in the hopes that it will draw a larger audience to the game. A focus of Dystopia: Contest of Heroes will be on global multiplayer tournaments where players will be able to compete for various real-life prizes.
These will reportedly be hosted by Conor McGregor himself. There will be a mixture of daily single and duo tournaments to compete in that will net players various in-game rewards. Meanwhile, weekly and monthly tournaments will serve as qualifiers for a yearly tournament that will include prizes such as signed merchandise, a meeting with McGregor and other prizes worth tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The game itself is described by Beetroot Labs as build and battle meets RPG, set in a futuristic cyberpunk world. It looks to slot into the mid-core tier of strategy game but with a simple onboarding process that eases players into the complexities step by step.
Players start the game as a rebel who finds a suitable location to build a base. They’ll be tasked with building an empire by taking over various districts in New York. Meanwhile, they’ll be collecting sci-fi themed gear, raid other players and upgrade their bases. Players can also create alliances with over 100 other players to wage wars against other alliances.
Dystopia: Contest of Heroes is available now over on the App Store and Google Play. It’s a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
