Whereas Fortnite could also be free from the woes of the cryptocurrency market, the identical cannot be mentioned for the remainder of the Epic Video games Retailer. In reality, a brand new NFT-riddled nightmare is on its option to Epic’s shopfront imminently.
The sport in query is known as Grit and, nicely, it appears to be like lots like one thing that rhymes with grit however that I’m too well mannered to jot down right here.
At its Galaverse conference yesterday, developer Gala Video games revealed it had “signed a partnership with Epic”, presumably to launch the title through its storefront. Gala then went on to talk extra about Grit, its wild-west themed battle royale which you’ll be able to see within the trailer above.
“Grit goes to be one of many very first [NFT] video games on the Epic Video games retailer,” a Gala Video games spokesperson mentioned.
“That is the second that it is all going to begin to change, and all people’s going to determine that, why would you play any sport the place you do not personal what you purchase within the sport?”
I for one do not assume that query actually wanted to be requested, however there we go.

You’ll be able to take a look at a few of Grit’s gameplay (though that is being beneficiant) beneath. From what we are able to see, it appears to be like like a poor man’s model of Pink Useless On-line.

Epic first revealed its intension to welcome the divisive know-how to its retailer again in 2021. This was in distinction to Valve, which mentioned Steam “shall be kicking *all blockchain video games* off the platform”. So, on this case, I’m definitely full Steam forward, because it have been.
