Many games have adopted Immutable’s tech to provide faster and cheaper on-chain interactions than Ethereum’s own mainnet, and several of those titles have started flooding into the Epic Games Store, a major mainstream PC gaming marketplace.
Here’s a look at all the games using one of Immutable’s networks that has been listed on the Epic Games Store.
Not to be confused with the sci-fi blockchain metaverse game of the same name, the Avalon game using the Immutable zkEVM blockchain is a medieval, open-world MMORPG where you can create characters, craft items, complete quests, and explore a world with dragons, ships, and expansive leafy landscapes. In Avalon, everything from characters to mounts, buildings, and forges will exist as NFTs.
Avalon is currently listed as coming out sometime in 2024 on the Epic Games Store for PC players.
Blocklords is a bird’s-eye view medieval strategy and simulation MMO currently in early access on the Epic Games Store. Players must select their own plot of land, build and staff a village, fight off invaders, and direct workers to mine, harvest, and complete other tasks. In Blocklords, story-based “choose your own adventure” moments will appear, where players must pick a response to various events—and face a range of consequences.
Blocklords currently uses the Immutable X and Polygon blockchains for its optional NFTs, according to its Epic Games Store page.
Delysium is a sci-fi MMORPG in development that will use both blockchain and AI elements. The game is currently slated to launch sometime in 2025, according to its Epic Games Store page. Players will be able to vote on game changes with the ERC-20 governance token AGI and buy NFTs on Immutable’s marketplace that can customize their characters and weapons.
Illuvium is an open-world exploration and pet autobattler NFT game that’s currently available in early access on the Epic Game Store. Illuvium’s Epic listing effectively combines two Illuvium games: Overworld and Arena. The former is a third-person sci-fi open-world exploration game, and the latter is the pet autobattler title, where players use cards of Illuvials to fight the enemy’s Iluvials on a small battle arena.
While the game is currently free-to-play and has optional NFTs, Illuvium is using the Immutable X blockchain for all its in-game NFTs, like Illuvials and cosmetic items.
Metalcore is a first-person sci-fi shooter and third-person mech operating game currently in early access on the Epic Games Store. The game will use the Immutable zkEVM blockchain to host its NFTs, which are vehicles, weapons, crafting elements, and other items.
Space Nation Online
Space Nation Online is an MMORPG in development with the apocalyptic sci-fi director Roland Emmerich attached, who is known for his work on films like “Independence Day” and “The Day After Tomorrow.”
The world of Space Nation will have one to two different star systems to explore at launch, offering characters from 3-5 different races including “Terrans,” according to the game’s Epic store page. Currently, its Epic listing does not indicate that it is a blockchain game, but there will be a blockchain version of Space Nation that will offer NFTs on the Immutable zkEVM network.
Like Space Nation, The Bornless is an NFT-optional game that is not currently listed as a blockchain game on the Epic store. The Bornless is an upcoming first-person horror shooter game with current plans to launch on the Epic Games Store sometime in 2024.
In the game, players will be able to choose from different superpower-like abilities and then hop into a range of shooter game modes like multiplayer deathmatches or duo co-op matches.
Even more games
But that’s not all—there are a bunch of other games listed on the Epic store that use Immutable for their crypto elements. The fantasy MMORPG Age of Zalmoxis, card game The Lost Glitches, plane crash game Aviatrix, the monster battler Chain Monsters, and the shooter game Citizen Conflict have also all been added to Epic’s store.
Honorable mention: Gods Unchained
Gods Unchained, the NFT trading card game from Immutable, was first released back in 2018. In June 2023, it was added to the Epic Games Store, but has since been removed. U.S. searches on the Epic Store for the title delivers no results, and the game’s prior tweet about its Epic store listing now leads to an 404 error message.
Some Reddit users have speculated that Gods Unchained may have been removed from the Epic Store because it was viewed as a form of “gambling.” Decrypt has reached out to Epic Games and Immutable for comment on the reason for the removal—and whether the game could return to the store at some point in the future.
