This new investment round will allow the studio build GunZ, their new platform. It empowers players by giving them complete control over their in-game belongings. GunZ will be the foundation of Off The Grid (OTG). In-game item trading is one of the most important features of “Off the Grid” (OTG).

Those not interested in trading can simply skip this feature and enjoy the entire game without any restrictions.
Vlad KorolevGunzilla’s CEO and Co-Founder, John explains that “we are trying to give players complete freedom in every aspect of OTG and with each step of its gameplay. OTG will allow players to trade and own their in-game items with others. Players can rest assured that their hard-earned goods will not be lost. Today’s free-to play games mean that if you pay for something it’s not yours. You don’t have any rights to anything. To verify, anyone can read any game’s EULA. Any item can be taken from you if you are banned. You lose all your money if you stop playing free-to play games. We are reinventing the game, giving gamers the power back, and using blockchain technology to do it. We are setting a new standard in the industry with OTG and GunZ.
Players will also be allowed to take their items from the game. Gamers will find new items every time they play OTG. The unique characters players create, as well as custom clothing items, weapons, and accessories, will all be available for trading in-game.
This investment round follows a teaser-trailer Gunzilla’s upcoming game OTG. A AAA Battle Royale 2.0, third person shooter, OTG is being led by Chief Visionary Officer, the studio’s Oscar nominee Neill Blomkamp. OTG is a free-to-play F2P title that features a strong narrative focus and unique gameplay mechanics. It will be released on next-generation platforms in 2023.
Brian JohnsonRepublic Capital Senior Director, Michael Gratz, stated that “The Gunzilla Team is nothing short than stellar with industry veterans who have contributed to games many of us grew-up playing.” Gunzilla believes that free-to play is the best. By combining it with an optional Crypto component Gunzilla will be an example in bringing together the gaming and Crypto worlds. Gunzilla will be able to allow next-generation consoles to be used in Crypto gaming.
