Gala Games has shared a press release confirming that its new Wild West-themed blockchain and NFT title, Grit, will be headed to the Epic Games Store later this year, making it the first game of its kind to be available on the 194-million-strong platform that continues to rapidly grow its user base with free games and other aggressive promotions. Valve has opted to ban NFT games from its Steam store, but Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney stated in October last year that he would welcome blockchain titles so long as they “follow the relevant laws, disclose their terms, and are age-rated by an appropriate group.” A listing on the Epic Games Store can confirm that Grit is headed to the platform “soon.”

“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, President of Games at Gala 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.”

Gala’s GRIT, a ride-or-die battle royale set in the Wild West, will be the inaugural blockchain game to be available on the Epic Games Store. GRIT is a core battle royale game built on the Unreal Engine with realistic physics and unique twists. Players need to saddle up, ride and fight through town, building the best poker hand from found weapons to make a killing. Every game of GRIT is different, from Train Chase mode to Golden Horse, and will test your skills and strategy against other players in epic showdowns and shootouts. Players face off against a gang of gunslingers with more than 400 old-school gun variations. Play modes include solo, duo and squad. Showdowns take place on horseback to steam engine train tops, so players need to make sure their arsenal is ready for the deadly Calamity. Fans can wishlist the free game, launching later in 2022.
