The Sandbox Alpha Season 3 (AS3) builds on the successful Alpha Season 2, which attracted over 325.000 players. During AS3, players can reinvent themselves by creating an avatar - or choose one from 140.000 playable avatar NFTs - and immerse themselves in a Web3 ecosystem where music, art, architecture, gaming, fashion and entertainment come together. The Sandbox enables a new form of Web3 gameplay where players can also own and interact directly with multiple brands and IPs at the same time - be it in a Rabbids environment with a Steve Aoki avatar or in a The Walking Dead World featuring a Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT avatar unlocked through The Sandbox's pursuit of open Metaverse in-game interoperability.
"Alpha Season 3 will bring more multiplayer experiences, more partners, more creators, more owner and player rewards through play-and-earn mechanics, more collections, and more excitement," said Sebastien Borget, COO and co-founder of The Sandbox. "Each day will offer new and fun things to do as we continue to develop The Sandbox's metaverse."
Solo and multiplayer content includes 27 offerings from brand partners including Snoop Dogg, The Walking Dead, Deadmau5, Sueco, Warner Music Group, Ubisoft's Rabbids, BAYC, World of Women, The Smurfs, Steve Aoki, Metapride, Care Bears and Atari, 17 offerings from The Sandbox, 20 offerings supported by The Sandbox Game Maker Fund, 12 offerings of User Generated Content (UGC) from independent developers, and 16 offerings from Game Jams.
As the season progresses, players can not only level up, but also enter raffles to earn Alpha Season 3 Passes. With these you have the chance to win up to 500 SAND, climb the rankings and get SAND rewards. Any player with a verified identity is eligible to win SAND and an AS3 Pass. In addition, there are also guaranteed rewards for those who wager SAND (the platform's utility token), as well as owners of LAND, avatars, and NFT collections.
Players in AS3 earn Ethos Points, which correspond to the experience points they earn from completing quests. Ethos Points can be used to earn Raffle Tickets for a chance to win an Alpha Season 3 Pass.
New Avatars and NFT
In addition to nearly 100 unique pieces of content, AS3 also features new Avatar and NFT collections. The 13 new avatar collections include 140K avatars from Bored Ape Yacht Club, Doggies, World of Women, CoolCats, Clone X and Aoki. There are 16 NFT collections containing 450 NFTs, including 65 equippable items and clothing items, each with unique in-game properties.
The Sandbox Alpha Season 3 will be web3's largest deployment of interoperability to date. Over 100k NFT owners from different collections can transfer their online avatar seamlessly from their own platform directly to The Sandbox. This marks the beginning of a new era of true ownership and consistent online identity across all platforms.
“Not only do we believe in the Open Metaverse, we are building it in real-time with our partners,” said Sébastien Borget. “Owners of these collections can now use their NFTs in The Sandbox, in the first massively multiplayer interoperability initiative in Metaverse history. And we're just getting started: owners will enjoy unique in-game attributes and other features defined by each IP within their own environment."
Part virtual lot, part amusement park, The Sandbox embraces the idea of the metaverse as a continuous, shared digital space where worlds and heroes collide and magic is created. Hell's Kitchen joins over 300 existing partnerships, including Warner Music Group, Ubisoft, The Rabbids, Gucci Vault, The Walking Dead, Snoop Dogg, Adidas, Deadmau5, Steve Aoki, Richie Hawtin, The Smurfs, Care Bears, Atari, ZEPETO , CryptoKitties and Paris Hilton, all following The Sandbox team's vision of giving players the ability to create their own worlds with their own original and well-known characters.
