Gunzilla Games Partners with OpenSea for In-Game Asset Trading 


Gunzilla Games has revealed a groundbreaking integration with OpenSea, enabling players to trade in-game assets on the NFT marketplace. This integration will debut with Gunzilla’s upcoming video game, “Off the Grid.”

In a statement, Gunzilla Games announced that OpenSea will incorporate the gaming developer’s GUNZ blockchain, which operates on a custom Avalanche subnet. This integration aims to establish a compliant and transparent NFT marketplace for trading in-game items. Players and OpenSea users will have the opportunity to trade in-game NFT items for any game built on the GUNZ blockchain, utilizing the GUN token as the exclusive method of payment.

OpenSea CEO Devin Finzer expressed enthusiasm for partnering with Gunzilla Games, praising their commitment to exceptional gameplay and advanced in-game economies that prioritize player experience.

“Off the Grid,” Gunzilla Games’ battle royale title, will be the first game to leverage this integration. Set for release on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles later this year, “Off the Grid” could become the first video game on both Sony’s PlayStation and Microsoft’s Xbox to enable players to own and trade digital assets as NFTs.

This announcement aligns with recent patent filings by Sony Interactive Entertainment, indicating interest in NFTs for transferring assets across games and console generations.

Gunzilla Games co-founder and CEO Vlad Korolov emphasized the significance of this partnership, stating that the launch of “Off the Grid” will offer a preview of the future of gaming economies.

In response to inquiries regarding regional restrictions on trading “Off the Grid” NFTs, Gunzilla Games stated that in-game assets held by players in regions where the game debuts will be tradable on OpenSea. The company plans to issue separate announcements about the specific rollout of GUNZ across different regions.

Last month, Gunzilla Games announced a $30 million funding round co-led by CoinFund and Avalanche’s Blizzard Fund, with ambitions to develop the first blockchain-based AAA video game targeted at mainstream gamers.
