Out in rural Wyoming, you balance precariously on top of a speeding train, trying not to lose your cowboy hat or your pistol as you search for the thief who robbed you blind at the Pioneer Saloon. You have tracked him from dusty town to dusty town, always just missing him, and now you spot him, standing on the gangway connection ahead of you, smoking a cigarette. He seems unaware of your presence, and your heart races as you anticipate getting your money back and settling the score. You crawl across the train until you reach the gangway, where you peer down, ready to catch him by surprise – but without warning, the thief whips around, raises his gun in one fluid motion, and shoots your hat off in a hail of bullets. As the biggest firefight of your life gets underway in the new game GRIT, you meet firepower with firepower and pray that you get him first…
The future of entertainment has arrived with GRIT, Gala Games inaugural blockchain game on its Epic store. The launch of Gala’s ride-or-die battle royale set in the Wild West marks an exciting turning point for gaming enthusiasts: the company is using decentralization, player ownership, and reward economies to create a revolutionary new way of gaming.
Rather than microtransactions, Team Grit and Gala Games are selling The Gunslinger Box. Within this box players will find a generative GRIT avatar, with an entirely unique assortment of features, a unique appearance, and specific perks. As this avatar is an NFT, a player can trade or collect to get their perfect lineup of gunslingers.
Now it’s time to saddle up and journey back to a time when danger was around every corner! Each game of GRIT is different, so you will enjoy nonstop adrenaline and unpredictability. Will you dive into a water trough to evade the ambush of a deadly gang? Jump out the second-story window of a burning saloon as your enemy fires mercilessly at you? Gallop alongside a steam engine and leap onto it, ready to hijack it? From Train Chase mode to Golden Horse, you will fight through epic showdowns and shootouts and face off against gangs of gunslingers with more than 400 old-school gun variations.
If, by some chance, you survive a battle with a sheriff and emerge victorious, don’t get too cocky – a deadly calamity is always around the corner in GRIT. Be sure to keep your arsenal stocked because you never know who is hiding in that gulley or waiting for you when you finish your Poker game and decide to grab a bite across the street. If you are lucky, you will survive. If not, well, hone your skills and fight another day!
With its state-of-the-art game that is full of realistic physics and twists and turns, Team GRIT is innovating the blockchain and Web3 to make video games that players actually want to play. “Here at Team GRIT, we are invested in this new ecosystem and see all the value that Web3 can bring to the gameplay experience,” says Jon Mavor, Chief Technical Officer at Team GRIT. “We are excited to be working with Gala Games and by our presence on the Epic Games Store. Web3 will make players’ experiences in the Wild West even better.”
John Osvald, President of Games at Gala.Games, states, “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.”
GRIT is just the first Battle Royale blockchain game that Gala Games plans to release. With dozens of games on the horizon and several already in various stages of presale or beta play, Gala Games has established itself as the world’s leader in own-your-experience gaming.
What that means for you, the gamer, is a new level of gaming, one that will test your courage, your reflexes, and your timing. So, strap on your gun belt, dust off your boots, bone up on the rules of Poker, and jump into a game of GRIT – if you dare.
GRIT is a core battle royale game built on the Unreal Engine with realistic action and nonstop surprises. Players need to ride and fight through towns, build the best Poker hands, and watch their back at every moment. To experience the action and fun of GRIT, please check out its website.
Gala Games is a pioneer in Web3 entertainment, and with Epic Games Store’s 194+ million users, will bring Web3 games to the masses, exposing millions of gamers to this new entertainment genre.
