On June 6, Epic Games and Gala Games announced their partnership for a new blockchain-based game called Grit. At the Galaverse convention, the two announced their collaboration for a new blockchain game: Grit. Grit is a battle royale NFT-powered NFT game with wild-west vibes.
The game is the first of many blockchain-powered games to be published on Epic Games, Gala Games announced.
How did Epic Games and Gala Games become partners?
The main reason why Gala Games joined forces with Epic might be due to the company’s support of web3 gaming. Back in October 2021, the giant gaming hub Steam took a firm stance against blockchain games. Steam has since removed all NFT-powered games from their platform.
Surprisingly, Grit is currently listed as an early access game on Steam too. However, the last update appears to have been made on January 25th.
In January, the Grit team announced that it would delay its official launch via social networking. Gala Games’ Grit may have just launched a new deal with Epic Games.
In fact, Epic Games said they would welcome web3 games in response to Steam’s 2021 ban. Epic’s first foray into the blockchain gaming industry was not revealed by the partners until now.
What is Grit all about?
Basically, Grit is a blockchain game inspired by the Wild West culture. According to the game developers, it is “the ultimate wild west battlefield royale”. The game brings the Wild West aesthetics of the Wild West into the web3 age, from horses to guns and Western towns.
Users will have the ability to trade and mint in-game items as NFTs. Grit, an online multiplayer game that is free to play, will be available for download on the PC.
To begin with, Grit will drop 10,000 avatar NFTs via Gala Games. As part of Galaverse, minting will begin this week. The game will launch via Epic Game’s Unreal Engine later in the year.
What is Gala Games?
At this moment, Gala Games is one of the biggest blockchain gaming platforms. The network boasts over 1.3 million users as of April 2022. The platform supports the ecosystem by using its native currency, GALA coin. Unfortunately, the token experienced a decrease over the past month, CoinMarketCap reports.
To sum up, Gala Games’ partnership is an important step forward for the platform. Grit is their first blockchain game and a Wild West-themed experience for PC gamers. Galaverse will host the debut NFT collection for Grit.
