Since then, Gala Games has disclosed plans to release Grit, an upcoming online shooter powered by NFT, through the marketplace. Along  with additional games, Mythical Games will make Blankos Block party, an online create -and -play game, available on the site as well.

Cryptocurrency or other blockchain technologies has not been included by Epic Games in their games. Developers have been able to publish their NFT-based games on the platform’s marketplace, nevertheless.
