The Sandbox has signed an agreement with Skybound Entertainment to bring the world of The Walking Dead into the voxel universe of The Sandbox. The zombie-filled universe of the famous comic book series will come to life inside the blockchain-powered gaming world.
Skybound and The Sandbox work together to create a game experience that fits The Walking Dead franchise. Players can group up to survive the zombie apocalypse. They need to find food, gather resources, build walls, nurture relationships and making alliances.
Landowners in The Sandbox can also use voxel version of Rick Grimes, Michonne and other characters to create their own game experiences. Fans will also be able to find Lucille, the infamous barb-wired baseball bat from Neegan. Players will soon also be able to buy land next to The Walking Dead estate.
Buying The Walking Dead land
The Sandbox will launch its first public Alpha for players this summer. This event will enable anyone to experience a social hub and gain the power to build a fantastic collection of fantasy and role-playing adventures. Each of them can be traded with other players, creators, and artists on the platform.
Those who are interested in buying land, need to sign up now. The Sandbox will close the subscription option during the sale. A piece of land will cost 1,011 SAND, while a premium land will go for 4,683 SAND. Be sure to check out the official The Walking Dead x The Sandbox page.
Below on the map you can see where the land of The Walking Dead will be.
What is The Sandbox?
The Sandbox is one of the blockchain-powered virtual worlds currently in development. The virtual world of The Sandbox consists out of lands, and voxels fill up each of those lands. Visually it will remind many gamers of Minecraft, as both games have this Lego-inspired look to them. However, players are able to buy virtual land and implement any form of monetization. These virtual lands can become mini-games, adventures, virtual shops, extensions of actual webshops, a space for social gatherings, and so on.
The Sandbox is providing free tools for developers, gamers and content creators. Creators can use VoxEdit to make objects. In addition the Game Maker allows users to create interactivity on their virtual land. The Sandbox will also create a meta gaming experience. Players can for example do daily quests or weekly quests for their guild. This will earn players SAND, which they can sell or use to buy in-game items or virtual land.
