A mighty alliance of Web3 and esports. In a move set to redefine the esports landscape, game developer nWay, in partnership with Animoca Brands and Yuga Labs, have unveiled their next flagship project: Wreck League. This innovative web3-powered game will thrust players into the future of gaming, where assembling, owning, and battling Mechs will be the new normal. The best part for Season 1? It’s all glued together with the Extended Yugaverse.
- nWay, a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, in collaboration with Yuga Labs, announces the imminent launch of Wreck League, a Web3-enabled multiplayer fighting game.
- Wreck League will feature Mechs, player-created and owned battle robots, and will enter The Extended Yugaverse, integrating various Yuga Labs collections through IP licensing, in its first season.
- The game represents a revolution in esports, with an emphasis on player-created assets and on-chain prize rewards, bridging the Web3 and Web2 worlds.
- The game encourages creators, owners, and skilled players to team up, creating a diverse ecosystem of competition.
- A free-to-play version of Wreck League, minus the need for NFTs, will also be released, thus expanding the game’s reach beyond the Web3 community.
- Owners of Mech NFTs will earn a portion of the revenue from in-game purchases of non-NFT copies of their Mechs in the Web2 game’s store.
- A special sale of Mech parts for those on the Allowlist is planned, further incentivizing engagement with the game.
Creating Your Mech, Your Way
Breaking the shackles of traditional fighter rosters, Wreck League will allow players to generate their own robotic gladiators, boasting an astonishing 1.5 quadrillion possible unique combinations. In its maiden season, the game will tap into the Yuga Labs universe, incorporating Bored Ape Yacht Club, Mutant Ape Yacht Club, Bored Ape Kennel Club, and Otherside Kodas collections, giving a new edge to player customization.
On the Winning Team: Creators, Owners, Skilled Players
Wreck League isn’t just about good gaming; it’s about community and collaboration. Creators, owners, and skilled players will all have a part to play in this league of extraordinary Mechs. And to sweeten the deal, creators will be able to disassemble their Mechs back into parts for endless customization, ensuring no two machines are the same.
Web2 Meets Web3 in an Epic Mashup
nWay is committed to making Wreck League accessible to everyone, and that includes those who aren’t yet initiated into the world of Web3. A free-to-play version, complete with daily missions and a battle pass, will replicate the Web3 version’s core gameplay and battle mechanics, inviting gamers from all walks of life to join in the fun.
Sharing the Loot
In a commendable effort to bridge the Web3 and Web2 communities, nWay will allow owners who create Mech NFTs to create copies of their Mechs as in-game, non-NFT Mechs. These non-NFT Mechs will be available for purchase by players in the Web2 game’s store. To top it off, a portion of the revenue generated from these purchases will go back to the original Mech NFT owners, creating a win-win scenario for everyone involved.

Yuga Labs: The Perfect Partner in Wreck League
The Yuga Labs collaboration goes beyond exclusive parts and mechs. We have worked together to craft an intricate lore that blends the universes of Bored Ape, Kennel Club, and the Otherside with the Wreck League universe. Expect to see familiar faces, like Curtis, Jimmy, Gary, and Blue, alongside a host of new characters making their debut on this action-packed stage.
Yuga Mechs: Assembling an Army from Scratch
Have you ever imagined what it would be like to mix and match over 80 unique mech parts to create a limitless array of battle-ready mechs? Well, brace yourself for a tantalizing prospect of endless creativity. Each of the four Yuga collections offers 20 unique mech parts and two full mech sets. The fusion of colors, objects, shapes, and personality into every design ensures a vivid representation of the original source material.
To keep the excitement levels on the up and up, the Yuga mech parts distribution is divided across three mints. Starting with Koda mechs in Mint 1, we proceed to Kennel Club and Mutant Ape mechs in Mint 2, and finally, the Bored Ape mechs close the series in Mint 3.
Mint 1 – Koda Mechs
Koda mechs offer an uncanny fusion of the familiar with the enigmatic, drawing heavily from a variety of Koda designs. Alien-like forms, advanced weaponry, and an enigmatic presence, these formidable machines stand as a testament to Koda’s mysterious spirit.
Mint 2 – MAYC & BAKC Mechs
MAYC mechs embody the exceptional diversity of the Extended Yugaverse, with a distinctive mutant-inspired design elements and interchangeable appendages. Kennel Club mechs, on the other hand, are an enthralling blend of dog and machine. Robotic marvels that capture the charm and loyalty of our furry friends, they invite collectors on an adventure filled with love, companionship, and fierce head-to-head combat.
Mint 3 – Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) Mechs
BAYC mechs embody the essence of artistic expression and creativity, with a laid-back chill vibe that belies their formidable capabilities in the arena. Don’t be fooled by their lounging appearance, they are fierce adversaries ready to shake up the playing field.
The Mech Box Collection: Embracing the Element of Surprise
The mech box collection offers two types of boxes: Majestic and Booster. The Majestic Box contains ten random parts that can assemble a full mech from scratch. The Booster Box consists of five random mech parts to augment an existing mech or help create a new one. Purchasing one Majestic Box guarantees you ten parts to create a mech, while purchasing two Booster boxes guarantees ten parts… but not necessarily the ones you need to assemble a mech.
The Rarity Tiers
The mech boxes for Season 1 are categorized into six distinct rarity tiers: common, uncommon, rare, epic, legendary, and Yuga. The rarer the box, the rarer the parts inside. The Yuga rarity tier, the pinnacle of the series, can only be found in Majestic boxes.
Box Sales, Claiming, and Trading
Majestic and Booster boxes will go on sale simultaneously, with more details to follow in the coming weeks. Once the sale is concluded, the rarity of each box will be revealed and open to trade on marketplaces such as OpenSea.
Box Opening and Burning
Box opening day is an anticipated event where owners unlock their boxes. When opened, boxes are burned and their contents revealed. The process is not automatic, and owners have the freedom to leave their boxes unopened, making each unopened box a rarity in itself.
Assembling Mechs and Game Launch
Once boxes are opened, mech parts are claimed by their respective owners and assembled via the Garage feature on the Wreck League website. The first Wreck League game event and box opening coincide, meaning players can take their newly assembled mechs for a spin without delay.
Wreck League: The Ultimate Gaming Experience
Wreck League is a gaming experience like no other, with user-generated fighters and personalized mechs taking center stage. The game comes in two versions: Web3, which is exclusive to mech NFT owners, and Web2, a free-to-play version for everyone.
The Web3 Version: Mech Owners Battle
The Web3 edition offers a unique opportunity to battle with your very own creations in a live head-to-head environment. The potential combinations of mech parts, over 1.5 quadrillion to be precise, give each player truly unique mechs. The assembled mechs determine many gameplay aspects, including basic and special moves, ultimates, combos, energy meter, and various stats.
The Free-to-Play Version: Gamers and Creators Unite
The F2P version of Wreck League follows a Free-to-Play model common in mobile and PC gaming. The in-game store is populated by mechs created by the mech NFT owners, fostering a community-driven economy within the game.
The Road Ahead
Wreck League is an ambitious project that boldly embraces the world of Web3. With user-generated fighters, collaborations with Yuga (and other top-tier brands to come), Wreck League is set to reshape the landscape of competitive video games.
