Open NFT gaming metaverse The Sandbox announces that it has partnered with the band Slipknot to create the KNOTVERSE. KNOTVERSE brings the band initiated festival Knotfest to the Metaverse and will be a Web3 home for Slipknot/Knotfest Metaverse experiences, concerts and lifestyle.
The Sandbox, a leading decentralized virtual game world and subsidiary of Animoca Brands, today announced that it has teamed up with Slipknot, the most enigmatic, provocative and aggressive band in modern times, to create the KNOTVERSE. KNOTVERSE brings the Knotfest to The Sandbox's metaverse and will be a Web3 home for Slipknot/Knotfest metaverse experiences, concerts and lifestyle.
Meeting point in the metaverse
The collaboration brings together innovators in their respective fields to create a unique gathering place for heavy music culture in the metaverse. KNOTVERSE delivers Web3 experiences specially curated by Knotfest and Slipknot. The KNOTVERSE roadmap envisions unique NFTs and generative collections as well as Metaverse concerts, gaming experiences, fan experiences, unique collaborations, wearables and much more. Ultimately, it offers heavy culture fans unique access to new music, events, festival experiences, merchandise, gear, masks and more.
KNOTVERSE is themed with Slipknot's self-curated festival brand and media site Knotfest. KNOTVERSE LANDS in The Sandbox is an immersive, gritty carnival event spanning the globe and media site www.knotfest.com. It takes the festival's sombre carnival theme and incorporates more than 20 years of Slipknot themes and imagery, authentically recreated in voxel form.
"When I started playing Quake online in 1999 and Minecraft in 2011, it was on a different level," says M. Shawn "Clown" Crahan. "But back then I couldn't have Sid scratch next to me, I couldn't offer visual art to the fans. All we could do together was play the game. But small ideas like this are not only possible now, they just scratch the surface. We listen, we observe, and we go where our fans take us. And if you don't get it or are worried, know that we're going to take our fans with us. We're doing this for all of us, with all of us, and we can't wait for you to see what we're up to.”
Part virtual real estate, part amusement park, The Sandbox embraces the idea of the metaverse as a continuous, shared digital space where worlds and heroes collide and create magic. With that in mind, the team at The Sandbox is working closely with Slipknot to bring their LANDS to life in The Sandbox, which forms the foundation of the KNOTVERSE Metaverse experiences.
"We are proud to welcome Slipknot and Knotfest as the first heavy music band to open a home for their community in The Sandbox's open metaverse," said Sébastien Borget, COO and co-founder of The Sandbox. “We are building the future of digital expression and social interaction, and this partnership invites a diverse new audience to experience the benefits of real ownership using every Slipknot NFT not only in The Sandbox, but also on any other compatible platform can."
Slipknot/Knotfest joins the 200+ global brands - including Adidas, Snoop Dogg, Warner Music Group, Ubisoft and Rabbids, Shibuya 109, Gucci, HSBC, The Walking Dead, The Smurfs and CryptoKitties - who have already formed IP partnerships, to create voxelized versions of their worlds and characters in the Metaverse.
The Sandbox had previously announced a cooperation with Ledger, a provider of hardware wallets, and published a trailer:
