We’re so early — we are — but some of us have been waiting for traditional games in the blockchain space for some years now and we’re getting impatient. So, the first half of this year has been particularly exciting as we see blockchain games that approach the passing of the ultimate litmus test: Would I play this game if it didn’t have blockchain?

What Is Undead Blocks?
Undead Blocks is a Play-to-Earn (P2E) first-person shooter (FPS) on Ethereum.

There are, however, rewards for playing in the beta:
The full game launch will be in July on PC and Mac, with PS5 and Xbox planned for later in the year. You can learn more about the game by clicking here.
