These filters, with synchronized 3D tracking, allowed players to interact with game characters. By May 22nd, the filters had engaged 383,000 users and prompted 382,000 interactions on Snapchat alone, yielding an extraordinary interaction rate of 99.6% on May 29th.

To round out the experience, IGG arranged a metaverse art exhibition on the Decentraland platform, showcasing 24 digital art pieces from Viking Rise, including character portraits, scene illustrations, and game videos.
