Blankos Block Party Goes Live On The Epic Store – Season 1 Is On The Way

After months of waiting and anticipation, Mythical Games’ Blankos Block Party is now live on the Epic Games Store. Players can now download the game for free via the Epic Store. 

Earlier, Gala Games’ GRIT announced a partnership with Epic, and was expected to be made the first NFT game on the store. However, GRIT is still listed as “coming soon” on the marketplace. 

In any case, Blankos Block Party has launched on Epic Games Store, and is gearing up for the opening of the game’s first season.

On the Flipside

  • To date, traditional gamers haven’t responded well to blockchain or NFT games. It will be interesting to see how players react to Blankos Block Party, and whether or not it will be a hit. 
  • Critics often call the game “expensive Roblox” as the cost of entry is rather high.

Why You Should Care

More and more video game companies are looking into blockchain and experimenting with NFTs. While it’s debatable whether blockchain games will become mainstream attractions, Epic Games is certainly paving the way for the transformation.
