At this moment more than 25,000 people have signed up for the community land sale, during which only 6,000 land parcels go up for sale. These gamers have pledged a total of $130 million, meaning an average of $5,200 per player. Because of these demand, Bright Star Studios changed the timing of the selection process a bit.
- Selection process — from 1st to 31st of August
- Contacting those selected — from 1st to 14th of September
- Land distribution — 15th to 31st of September
Demand for the community land sale made the studio decide to do these types of land sales more often. Outstanding community members can apply. Aside from these future land sales, community members can also look forward to joining the Ember Sword token sale. They will introduce special NFTs, giving players access, special perks and a right to claim Ember tokens during the private sale.
What’s land in Ember Sword
A land plot, which is roughly the size of your game screen, is the smallest piece of land you can buy. For $40 you become a Sir or a Lady, and your land can host campsites, NPC houses, monsters, and resources. For roughly $400, or actually 0,107 ETH, you get a settlement plot. Small-sized buildings can be placed here, for example a guild outpost or some stores.
Pay 2.139 ETH or $8,000 and you get 4 land plots that combine as a town. These allow for bigger buildings, an exchange that connects with the global gaming network. If you really have many to throw around, you could pay ten times as much and acquire a city. During the next sale all prizes will be doubled.
