  • Epic Game announces support for NFT Gaming as the competitor, Steam, removes crypto-based products from their platform.
  • Blankos Block Party becomes the first NFT-based game to launch on the Epic Game store.

For a long time, gamers have been staunchly opposed to NFT Games. Their arguments have always revolved around the fact that NFTs added no value to the gaming experience.

Several gamers have refused to play games or patronize gaming platforms linked to NFTs because they “prioritized in-game purchases over user experiences” in rolling out essential parts of the gaming experience.

Steam, a popular gaming platform, has already taken a stand against NFTs by removing NFT, Crypto, and Blockchain-based games from its platform.

Epic Games, their main competitor, announced in a statement, much to the delight of NFT Game developers, that it is now supporting NFT and blockchain-based games on its platform as Blankos Block Party launches. 

The new game, which looks like a new version of the infamous Roblox game, is powered by blockchain infrastructure. BlankosBlockParty is a vibrant free-to-play open-world multiplayer game styled like a giant block party, with a focus on custom art and design.

As it is still early, it is impossible to predict how gamers will react to this new game, but the debate over NFT games is far from being over.
