[PRESS RELEASE – Jackson, USA, 7th June 2022]
Gala Games, a pioneer in web3 entertainment, today announced that it continues to lead the way in blockchain gaming by publishing its titles on the Epic Games Store. With the Epic Games Store over 194 million users, Gala will bring Web3 games to the masses, expose millions of gamers to this new genre of entertainment, and solidify Gala’s place as a leader in the growing Web3 games industry .
This announcement follows several first and foremost announcements for the Web3 company. Gala recently announced the first Web3 first-person-shooter (FPS) by AAA Studios, the launch of the Gala music platform, and the upcoming launch of the company’s Spider Tank, the world’s first NFT esports.
“Epic is a leader and visionary in the video game industry. The availability of Gala Games titles on the Epic Games Store gives legitimacy to this new genre of gaming,” said John Oswald, President of Games at Gala Games.
“Easy access to Web3 games marks a turning point for players who have yet to see 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 ride, ride and fight through the city, making the best poker hand out of found weapons to make a kill. Every game of GRIT is different, from Train Chase mode to Golden Horse, and will test players’ skills and strategy against other players in epic showdowns and shootouts. Players face off against a gang of gunmen with over 400 old school gun variations. Play modes include Solo, Duo and Squad. The showdown takes place on horseback atop a steam engine train, so players need to make sure their arsenal is ready for deadly disaster. Fans can wishlist the free game, which will be launched later in 2022.
To celebrate the Galaverse (June 6-9, 2022) starting today in Malta, Gala Games will be offering a special sale of “The Gunslinger Box”, which will unlock one of 10,000 GRIT avatars. Each character has its own unique benefits and characteristics that the owner can play as the game goes on. Attributes are generative and will give each character a unique look. Bosses will be able to take with them their favorite loadout of specific weapon skins, giving them an advantage over their counterparts. The sale for Galaverse attendees begins today and opens gradually throughout the week: Node owners get access on June 7th and Gala Gold on June 8th. The public will have access to “The Gunslinger Box” sale on June 9. Each group will have access to the sale for a period of 12 hours.
“Here at Team GRIT we are invested in this new ecosystem and see all the value that Web3 can bring to the gameplay experience,” said Jon Mawr, Team GRIT’s Chief Technical Officer. “We are excited to be working with Gala Games and our presence on the Epic Games Store. Web3 will further enhance the player experience in the Wild West.
More details about GRIT will be revealed during the Galaverse on June 6-8 in Malta.
