Read on to find out about this user friendly NFT game you need to be checking out.
What NFT game has Epic Games released?
For quite a while now Blankos Block Party has been available for gamers to play via Mythical Games.
Blankos has been able to amass a large following of active users engaging with the gameplay and also NFT marketplace. 2022 has seen 1 million play this game, a great accomplishment for a title only in its self described “early access” stage.
It is an open world NFT based game where players use their own unique characters to win NFTs and in-games. So far this title has gained a lot of attention from gamers and brands alike.
Brands such as Burberry, Amazon and an array of quirky artists have teamed up with Blankos Block Party to release their own limited collections as NFTs.

The first of its kind
This is the first Web3 game to be released on the Epic Game Store, showing the newfound progressive attitude towards NFT games.
Back in June the news was announced that this game would be available through Epic Games. With no disruptions this groundbreaking move by Blankos will allow their already active user base to grow even more.
Epic Games’ CEO Tim Sweeney on Twitter in October of 2021 to address his feeling towards the adoption of Web3 gaming and technologies:
“Epic Games Store will welcome games that make use of blockchain tech provided they follow the relevant laws, disclose their terms, and are age-rated by an appropriate group. Though Epic’s not using crypto in our games, we welcome innovation in the areas of technology and finance.”

These comments seemed promising at the time of writing with many still unbeknown to the potential of Web3.
What makes Blankos Block Party different?
Blankos Block Party is much different from that of Axie Infinity and The Sandbox to name a few.
The reason for this being because users are not required to have a unique wallet to access the game.
Overall including this feature allows gamers to have a less daunting experience if this is their first time playing these sorts of games.
Many titles as popular as Blankos Block Party require users to spend large amounts of capital on NFT characters and in-game items just to be able to play the game.
Limiting player amounts can have its drawbacks. Similar to Fortnite and other free to play games available, Blankos has its own “Season Pass”.
Purchasing this pass incentivises users to play more as new challenges are refreshed on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.
As you unlock more, you have more opportunity to earn lucrative rewards and NFT collectibles.
