Chronoshot to introduce a up-to-date game mechanic where time only moves when the player moves. This allows players to actively strategize, take shots, and plan moves against the opponent, increasing the tactical depth of the game. The game is currently in Early Access and is available on the Epic Games Store wishlist, which is one of the leading digital distribution platforms in the gaming industry.

Developer RFLXT shared details about the game’s early access in a series of posts on X. They announced, “Big news! Chronoshot is now wishlisted on Epic Games, joining Chains of War and Flux Point Studio. We’re launching FREE Early Access to give more people the opportunity to check out the game and our platform over the next few months of development.”

The move to an open beta, as opposed to a customary closed beta, is part of a broader strategy to engage the community directly in the game’s development process in order to boost transparency and user feedback. “We want as many people as possible to see what we’re doing, so we’re moving straight to an open beta/early access instead of a closed beta,” the company wrote.

RFLXT is also planning a deeper integration of its platform with Epic Games. This integration will allow players to operate a single RFLXT account on both platforms, facilitating features like crossplay and seamless gameplay continuity. Additionally, the company is launching a beta version of its platform http://RFLXT.com with Chronoshot, “some Cardano partner games and Digital Double teaser sites before the end of summer and will show everything via demos on RareEvo.”

Chronoshot’s operate of the Cardano blockchain includes energetic NFTs that provide up-to-date character leveling mechanisms that are accessible to all players, including those who don’t want to engage with blockchain technology. Interestingly, these NFTs don’t offer a competitive advantage to ensure the game maintains balance.

The Early Access version of Chronoshot features two single-player modes: Time Attack and Survival, both with leaderboards. RFLXT plans to introduce a multiplayer mode shortly after the Early Access release to test and refine these features based on user feedback. The developers have not set a specific release date yet, but they plan to release the full version of Chronoshot by the end of 2024.
