Gods Unchained by Immutable is now available on Epic Games Store.

The Web3 trading card game Gods Unchained, developed by Immutable Games, is now available on the Epic Games Store and can be played by its 230 million customers, according to an announcement made on June 21.

Gods Unchained is a card game that allows players to own and trade cards, similar to Hearthstone or Magic: The Gathering Arena. Each card is represented by a non-fungible token (NFT) on the Ethereum layer-2 network Immutable X. The game was launched in June 2019 and has grown its player base to reach 80,000 weekly active players in January 2022.

The Epic Games Store is a digital game distribution platform like Steam or GOG.com, and has over 230 million PC gamers who use it to find new games to play, according to the developer’s post from March titled “2022 Year in Review”.

Daniel Paez, the executive producer of Gods Unchained, considers the listing on the Epic Games Store as a pivotal moment in the game’s history. He stated, “It is hard to overestimate the significance of Gods Unchained’s launch on Epic Games Store, one of the largest PC gaming platforms in the world. We are extremely excited to present our game to a completely new and truly massive audience of traditional PC gamers and TCG enthusiasts.”

The listing comes at a time when Web3 publishers are still facing hostility from Steam, the world’s largest PC game distributor. In October 2021, Steam announced that Web3 games were not welcome on its platform and also delisted Age of Rust due to the perks the game offered to holders of its NFTs.

In March, former MetaMask team members released a rival distribution platform called Hyperplay to combat Steam’s actions. Hyperplay provides access to the Epic Games and GOG.com stores from within its interface and offers its own list of Web3 titles. On June 8, the Hyperplay team raised $12 million to further the platform’s development and expand its reach.
