Guild Of Guardians
4 min readAug 10, 2021

We are THRILLED to announce that Guild of Guardians will be collaborating with NRG Esports to release NFT collectibles which will be playable in the Guild of Guardians mobile game!

We will also be releasing the first ever NRG art collectible, and also giving one lucky person the chance to experience a free VIP experience in the NRG headquarters in Los Angeles.


Esports meet digital collectibles

Gaming is a core part of today’s culture, and Esports is at the heart of it. Professional Esports organisations are quickly becoming iconic, household brands, and these groups are constantly looking for new ways to engage with their fans.

With the emergence of digital ownership, we expect that the next phase of fan engagement will be for Esports organisations to introduce exclusive, collectible NFTs to their fans. These not only provide fans with additional ways to engage with their favourite teams, but will provide them with both unique digital and physical experiences.

And this is exactly what NRG is about to do.

Introducing Guild of Guardians x NRG

NRG is a professional gaming and entertainment company known for its championship teams and gaming lifestyle content. NRG boasts the most popular and competitive teams across Fortnite, Rocket League, Apex, Call of Duty and Overwatch, with multiple championship wins across these titles. NRG have a massive fan base, with content channels reaching over 34M uniques a month, fostering over 118M fan engagements.

We are super excited to announce that we will be working with NRG to collaborate on a Guild of Guardians x NRG hero which will be playable in the game. We will also be introducing NRG’s first ever NFT collectible which commemorates their success across various games in recent years, as well as providing one lucky fan the chance for an exclusive VIP experience in Los Angeles.

Meet the Guardian

Our next Legendary hero is a collaboration between NRG Esports and Guild of Guardians.

You will be able to play with this NRG Hero in the upcoming mobile game, Guild of Guardians.

NRG x Guild of Guardians Hero

We wanted to create something that would connect with fans and align with the NRG brand without being just slapping the NRG logo onto a character. We wanted this to look and feel like NRG — which is why we went with a ‘championship fighter’ character with subtle glyphic references to NRG in both the sword and the armor.

Initial Concept Sketches

This hero will also be available in different colour variations, and there will be a 1 of 1 Mythic available for one lucky buyer.

How it works

  • Guild of Guardians x NRG hero will be a NFT drop that will be available for purchase around Oct on our website (exact date to be announced)
  • It’s a Legendary Rarity hero in our “Early Adopters” series
  • Each summon has a chance to be a “special edition” colour variant, with the following probabilities: 10% Warrior, 2% Elite and 1 of 1 Mythic

Bonus: NFT Art Collectible

As a bonus, anyone who purchases the Guild of Guardians x NRG hero summon will also receive an exclusive NRG art collectible. This is fully tradable and represents an iconic moment in history — bridging fandom with digital ownership.

Mythic Bonus: Meet the team!

To make things even MORE interesting, we have decided to give one lucky winner and their friend the opportunity to meet and visit their favourite NRG team!

Whoever owns the Mythic hero at a pre-selected date (the ‘redemption date’) will receive:

  • 2 Tickets to visit the NRG Esports team in Los Angeles*
  • Airfare and accommodations to and from Los Angeles
  • Meet and greet with NRG Esports and influencers
  • VIP behind-the-scenes tour of the NRG Castle (no fan has EVER been inside!)
  • Exclusive private viewing of Esports competition (subject to availability)
  • Signed physical memorabilia and jerseys by their favourite players

*Timing is subject to travel restrictions

We’re super excited about working with NRG and bringing their brand to life in Guild of Guardians!

The future of gaming is upon us, and we welcome the entire NRG fanbase to join us in disrupting the gaming industry and empowering players to play AND earn!
