Gala Games Announces Playtests
In gaming news, Gala Games is keeping up the pace with regular updates for released games and open playtests for games in development. This month, players can participate in playtests for Walking Dead Empires, Eternal Paradox, Legends Reborn, Grit, and Last Expedition. The Eternal Paradox playtest started on March 14th and runs for two weeks, with rewards for players who participate in four different challenges. Unfortunately, the playtest is only available on mobile, but both Android and iPhone users can access it with their Gala Games account. Players who link their Gala Wallet in-game have a chance to win up to $500 worth of Gems, the game currency.
Another new playtest for Legends Reborn starts today, March 16th, although it may be delayed. The previous playtests have run for two weeks, and the end date for this test has not been announced yet. Legends Reborn is a TCG-style game that allows players to add effect and spell cards to their deck by playing limited creatures to the board. The game is building two versions: a standard non-web3 release on Steam and a web3 version that may include NFTs and the option for players to monetize their playtime. Stay tuned for updates on the playtest through their Discord announcements channel.
In another playtest, Last Expedition is launching into early access on Monday, March 20th, with Node Licenses distributed to everyone who owns a Node Bundle. Bundle owners will also receive an early access code for the latest dev build on Steam. Last Expedition is a team-based extraction game where players race to be the first to extract three fragments while battling hostile monsters and other players. The game relies on Node Operators running and hosting games, so it\’s logical for them to have a first look and try out the hosting features. For a glimpse of the gameplay, check out their recent YouTube video.
Finally, we have Grit, a western-themed FPS battle-royale game that requires a key to participate in their playtest. Signing up on their website https://grit.game/ is all it takes to get one. Grit holds playtests every Thursday, with different time slots to cater to players from all over the world. To stay updated on the latest info, check out their Discord server, which is also a great place to connect with other players.
