Immutable Games, the publisher of Ethereum NFT card game Gods Unchained, announced Monday that it will release an expansion pack called Dread Awakening, which will feature a crossover with the upcoming mobile role-playing game Guild of Guardians.

The Dread Awakening set, slated to drop on April 23, will include 148 cards minted on Immutable X, an Ethereum scaling network originally created by the publisher. Guild of Guardians, also from Immutable Games, is set to hold its global launch on May 15.

"This was a really fun expansion for us to work on because we've been able to lean into the creativity and lore of Guild of Guardians, while working really closely and collaboratively with a team that is quite literally sitting right next to me," said Gods Unchained Executive Producer Daniel Paez, in a release.

The expansion's "cosmic horror" theme “introduces new mechanics and cards that will reshape the meta and hint to a bigger world than ever imagined," the announcement added.


"What makes this even more exciting for me is the anticipation of things to come from this collaboration,” added Paez. “IP crossovers are just the tip of the potential we can unleash with web3 gaming—true game interoperability is right around the corner.”

Paez previously spoke with Decrypt’s GG about the potential for interoperability in blockchain games. Gods Unchained previously launched on Ethereum years back, but now uses Immutable X for cheaper and faster transactions. The game recently expanded to iOS and Android, with Immutable claiming a 60% jump in monthly active users.
