Web3 game Gods Unchained joins Fortnite, League of Legends on Epic Games Store

Quick Take

  • Gods Unchained, one of the most popular web3 games not based on Ethereum, has joined the Epic Games store. 
  • Gods Unchained executive producer tells The Block that the Epic Games entry helps break the game outside the web3 bubble. 

Gods Unchained, a blockchain-based trading card game, has launched on the Epic Games Store.

Operated by Fortnite creator Epic Games, the storefront sells popular video game titles such as FIFA 23, Among Us, Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto V and League of Legends. Gods Unchained's entry onto the platform marks a step toward web3 games reaching mass audiences. 

"This move represents our unwavering commitment to expanding our reach and breaking new ground in order to capture the attention of a wider audience who may not be aware of our game's existence outside the confines of the web3 gaming bubble," Daniel Paez, vice president of revenue and executive producer for God's Unchained, told The Block. 

Gods Unchained parent firm Immutable develops the NFT-focused Layer 2 scaler Immutable X. The company raised $200 million in Series C funding last year, netting the firm a $2.5 billion valuation.

Governance, economic changes

"Gods Unchained is one of the few blockchain games that is a part of a larger, well-funded company," Paez said. 

As for what the future holds, Gods Unchained is currently designing governance as well as economic changes. "We’re currently at an inflection point for Gods Unchained and the next six Gods months look to be some of the most exciting in our multi-year history," Paez said. 

Gods Unchained, based on the Immutable X blockchain, held 92% of the non-Ethereum NFT trading volume for web3 games between June 11 and June 18, according to The Block's Data Dashboard.
