Gunzilla Games, the game studio behind upcoming first-person battle royale shooter Off the Grid, has announced the integration of its GUNZ blockchain platform with the prominent NFT marketplace OpenSea. This move will allow players to trade in-game items from any game created on the GUNZ blockchain, which is built on an Avalanche subnet.

OpenSea will support the GUNZ network, including in-game items for Off the Grid and any other future games deployed on the Avalanche-based chain. The marketplace will let traders buy and sell such assets with the chain’s own GUN token.

"Our vision has always been to empower players with true ownership of their in-game assets, transforming how value is created and exchanged in digital worlds," said Vlad Korolov, CEO and co-founder of Gunzilla Games, in a release. "With OpenSea's support, we're one step closer to realizing a unified, player-driven economy across all games developed on the GUNZ blockchain."

The integration comes on the heels of Gunzilla Games' recent $30 million funding round, which included investments from CoinFund, the Avalanche Foundation's Blizzard Fund, Republic Capital, and Morningstar Ventures. Off the Grid is expected to launch later this year across PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox platforms.


"We are excited to partner with Web3 gaming pioneers like Gunzilla who prioritize great gameplay and advanced in-game economies that put the player first," said OpenSea CEO Devin Finzer, in a release. "GUNZ integration into OpenSea acts as a significant moment in that effort, bringing the highly anticipated Off the Grid into our marketplace and adding an element of ownership [that] console and PC players have yet to experience."
