The Bulldogs are pleased to announce that world-leading blockchain gaming studio, Illuvium, will be proudly displayed on the front of the Bulldogs NRL playing shorts for the rest of the 2022 season.
Illuvium is an open-world exploration, NFT creature collector and autobattler game built on the Ethereum Blockchain. It will be released on PC and Mac in late 2022, and onto mobile soon after. Players will play and earn in a graphically-rich, sci-fi adventure to conquer the wilderness to help your crash-landed crew flourish.
