Today, during the Galaverse event which takes place in Malta, Gala Games announced that the wild west battle-royale game GRIT will be the first Crypto and NFT title to join the Epic Games Store.
Gala Games also revealed that GRIT won’t be the only game to release on Epic Games Store.
GRIT is going to be a free-to-play MMO for Windows computers with NFT-based in-game assets where players can have complete ownership and use or sell the items in the secondary marketplaces to other players.
In contrast to Steam banning NFT games last year, Epic’s platform takes the first big step to integrate NFT games which are considered to be the future of gaming.
GRIT will feature land ownership in the form of NFTs where players can actually own virtual land and monetize it, in addition, collectibles such as artwork, skins, weapons, apparel avatars and vehicles can be owned and traded between the players.
Gala Games is going to offer 10,000 player avatars for its upcoming title with unique look and characteristics this week in the form of mystery boxes.
“Epic is a pioneer and visionary in the video game industry. Gala Games’ titles being available on the Epic Game Store brings legitimacy to this new genre of gaming,” said John Osvald, Gala’s president of games. “Easy access to Web3 games is a turning point for those players who have not yet seen how digital ownership can enrich the gaming experience.”

What is GRIT?
GRIT is a wild west Battle Royale genre game developed by the Team GRIT. There, players can experience old-style battle mechanics like long rifles and small weapons while roaming the wild west world of GRIT.
As you play GRIT, you’ll also find loot weapon cards from your fallen foes. You’ll have to make hard choices about whether to shuffle around for special perks from a winning hand or accumulate the best firepower.
Wildcard modifiers change the nature of each battle royale match, allowing you to experience the Wild West everywhere, from the town’s streets at high noon to onboard the last train out of town.
