A Walking Dead and The Sandbox land sale has been announced. Players now have a chance to stake their own claim in the metaverse of the comic book series and TV show. Virtual real estate is up for grabs in the form of NFTs. These will all be related to the fans’ favourite characters, including Glenn, Rick, and Negan.
The sale will begin on Thursday 26th August at 1PM, and concludes on 16th September. Four ‘waves’ will be involved, each focused on a new iconic location from The Walking Dead world. For every drop there will be specific NFTs, a unique hero character, new equipment, and large prop bundled with Premium Lands.
What’s in Each Walking Dead Sandbox Land Sale?
Each land sale ‘wave’ contains slightly different content and context. Five NFTs will be included per wave. Wave 1 involves 530 Lands and 120 Premium Lands. All are located around the Prison. Wave 2 involves 502 Lands and 95 Premium Lands. These are in the Commonwealth area. Wave 3 focuses on the Alexandria Safe-Zone colony, where 416 Lands and 97 Premium Lands can be found. A final fourth wave will include 602 Lands and 200 Premium Lands.
At first, we reported on The Walking Dead collaboration with The Sandbox in July. Most important to understand is what the game involves. Basically, players must survive a zombie apocalypse taking place in the gaming environment. For one thing, this means battling undead attackers, alongside harvesting resources, and forging alliances with others.
However, it’s important to realise that the title is now going beyond that. Seeing that you can soon buy land within the game we’re expecting new elements to be introduced. In other words, aspects that allow people to use their virtual real estate in different ways.
