The HV-MTL Forge Begins Next Week. Here's What You Need To Know About The Game:

The HV-MTL Forge is set to begin next week on June 29th, and HV-MTL holders are excited to forge their path through Yuga Labs' latest game!

With so much excitement surrounding the Forge, let's recap what we know so far:

First, how can people play?

As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Bored Ape and Mutant ape holders were able to mint Sewer Passes earlier this year that let them particpate in the Dookey Dash, an infinite runner game. Dookey Dash introduced players to the concept of a play-to-mint mechanic where higher scores netted rarer mints. The rewards came in the form of a mech cube known as Power Source. Players then met with Gary the Dog Prophet and summoned their HV-MTL Mechs.

Next, what do we know about the game mechanics?

While there is still a lot we do not know, Yuga Labs has revelaed that players will have to build a dwelling space for their HVs called a Home.

These HV-Homes are extremely customizable and appear to be built block by block. Once blocks are laid, players will be able to decorate the homes with accessories from TVs, cars, toilets, and exotic trippy flowers.

But building and maintaining a home isnt easy. Like IRL workshops, HV-Homes need maintenance, or players will find themselves knee-deep in oil spillage.

What do players need to know about the HV-MTL collection?

In Forge each HV possesses their own skills, personality, and roles, but aesthetics depends on the player. There are eight distinct mech types and seven physical traits among HVs.

Mech types: Glitch, Dynamic, Bio, Knight, Celestial, Reaver, Holo, and 1 Legendary. (order from common to rarest)

HV Physical Traits: Back attachment, body, companion, crest, faceplate, head, and weapon system

How do players make their HV-Homes and play?

So far, there are three currencies that can be used in Forge: Energy, Lug Nuts, and of course Ape Coin. Energy is confirmed to be used to build Homes and voting. Lug nuts are used to speed up construction.( see the photo below). Further, we know that Yuga Labs games are powered by ApeCoin. While nothing is confirmed, it is speculated that similarly to DooKey Dash, ApeCoin can be used to buy power ups, upgrades, and to replenish Energy at a faster rate.

Yuga Labs and Its Chief Gaming Officer has said the Forge is a social game. What does that mean?

In an effort to make the game more engaging, Yuga have included the social mechanics of voting. Participants will be able to upvote HVs they like and downvote HVs they dislike. Each vote will cost 10 Energy. There has been no confirmation how many times one can vote per day and, if Homes or HVs are needed to cast a vote.

As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Yuga Labs’ Chief Gaming Officer said that a lot of work went into making the voting fair.

In closing, from what we know so far, HV-MTL Forge aims to be a casual building game for the casual gamer. The goal is simple, build a Home for your HV and use in-game items to build the best and coolest HV. Get votes from the community and get rewards.

The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow the HV-MTL Forge and will keep you posted on the game. Stay tuned for updates!
