Gala Games’s Grit – a Wild West battle royal – is now available for gamers on the Epic Games Store, according to a statement Monday.

  • “Easy access to Web 3 games is a turning point for those players who have not yet seen how digital ownership can enrich the gaming experience,” John Osvald, Gala’s president of games, said.
  • The Epic Games Store has over 194 million users, according to the press release.
  • Last year, Gala Games and crypto investment firm C2 Ventures formed a $100 million fund to invest in play-to-earn games, metaverse environments and other projects built using blockchain technology.
