[Upcoming] The Dark Lions Are Coming to Loaded Lions: Mane City


Loaded Lions: Mane City Season 2 is coming soon, and with that comes several game changing updates. The Faction system, Abilities systems, as well as the highly anticipated ‘Dark Lions’ and ‘ Tactical Gear’ NFT collection integrations are all part of this update.

Uniquely crafted as compared to the ‘Loaded Lions’ and ‘Cyber Cubs’ NFTs, the ‘Dark Lions’ collectibles offer distinct advantages for your Attack abilities.

These NFTs play a vital role by enabling you to attack your fellow tycoons more frequently, reducing the cost of an Attack, or extending the duration of an effect on the tycoon you’re targeting.
