Epic Games Store offers a first web game3

Unlike its competitors, Timothy D. Sweeney has made it known that NFT games are welcome on the Epic Games Store. A year after the founder of Epic Games released this statement, the first Web3 game is coming to the platform.

Block Party Blankos, the first Web3 game on the Epic Games Store

Last June, Mythical Games already announced that its flagship game Blankos Block Party will debut on the Epic Games Store. It is a title that uses non-fungible tokens (NFT) to authenticate digital products (avatar styles, accessories …). Mythical Games, an American company that develops blockchain-based games, launched the beta version of this game in 2020. Blankos Block Party is now available in early access on the platform until its full release on September 28th.

According to Mythical Games, Blankos Block Party now has more than one million players. This game does not have its own crypto token. Furthermore, no mining is required to produce or include NFTs in the market. Instead, players purchase in-game items using a credit card or cryptocurrency. The characters are also equipped with NFT. And these can be sold in the shop and outside the Epic Games Store.

Understanding Web3 Games (NFT Games)

Web3 games, also known as NFT games, are very different from those offered on conventional platforms. These blockchain-based games are already decentralized. But they also and above all offer self-sovereignty. Simply put, Web3 games offer full ownership of digital assets to players and administrators via NFT.

With its availability on the platform, Blankos Block Party hopes to boost the development of the Web3 games industry. Epic Games Store also plans to develop this market. Other titles are already in the pipeline. Additionally, Gala Games’ GRIT game was supposed to be the first NFT game launched on the platform. But its development is delayed. The launch on the Epic Games Store is postponed until later.

Mythical Games hopes to leverage the popularity of the Epic Games Store platform to democratize its flagship title and Web3 games. Meanwhile, Blankos Block Party is already taking advantage of this inclusion. The minimum price of its NFTs would have risen by more than 600% after its appearance on the legendary Epic Games store.
