Epic Games Store is set to launch "Shrapnel," a first-person shooter crypto game. The game is set in a dystopian world and is described as an "AAA first-person extraction shooter." "Shrapnel" will compete with other high-profile blockchain games like "Star Atlas" and "Illuvium," which are also available on the Epic Games Store in early-access form. Early-access releases allow developers to build a community around their games while continuing to develop and refine the gaming experience.

Neon Machine, the studio behind "Shrapnel," boasts a team of experienced developers from companies like Xbox and Electronic Arts. The studio is taking a unique approach to early-access gaming, involving the community at every stage of development until the launch of the free-to-play game in 2025.

Neon Machine believes that players will embrace the opportunity to customize every aspect of the game, from characters and weapons to in-game maps. The studio hopes that this approach will help "Shrapnel" stand out from the crowd and become a blockbuster-quality AAA first-person shooter.

"Shrapnel" has raised a total of $37.5 million in funding, with Polychain Capital leading the Series A round. Other investors include Griffin Gaming Partners, Franklin Templeton, and Brevan Howard Digital. The launch of "Shrapnel" on the Epic Games Store, which has a PC user base of over 230 million gamers, is a significant step for the blockchain gaming industry.

According to CoinMarketCap data, Shrapnel (SHRAP) is currently valued at a market capitalization of $47.8 million.
