The renowned comic book and television franchise, “walking dead” will be included in the shared online universe of the NFT-driven game by Sandbox.
This week, The Sandbox, an upcoming Ethereum-based online metaverse game, announced that it has signed a diverse array of pop culture brands and properties for the shared gaming environment, including The Smurfs, electronic musician Deadmau5, seminal NFT experience CryptoKitties, and classic video game brand Atari.
Although it has only recently been added, it already illustrates how diverse and eclectic the next virtual world will be….
“The Walking Dead” is coming to The Sandbox, according to an announcement made today by Animoca Brands and Skybound Entertainment.
Characters and plot elements from the popular zombie-themed comic book and television franchise will be brought into The Sandbox, as will familiar themes and characters from the popular zombie-themed comic book and television franchise.
It will include an interactive Walking Dead game experience that will allow players to attempt to survive in the midst of a zombie uprising when it is first released, according to the developers.
In the game’s blocky 3D voxel format, popular characters like Rick Grimes and Michonne will be recreated, and players will be required to harvest resources, ward against undead attackers, forge alliances, and do a slew of additional things.
Users of The Sandbox’s Game Maker toolkit will be able to make use of assets from “The Walking Dead”
According to The Sandbox co-founder and COO Sébastien Borget, “Users will be able to create their own fan-made experiences and add their own personal flavour to the mix, stretching the limits of this Walking Dead mega-compound as far as the eye can see,” he added.
A dedicated plot of land on The Sandbox’s shared global map will be dedicated to “The Walking Dead.” just as there will be for other brand agreements.
During the metaverse’s early stages, players will have the opportunity to acquire their own adjacent pieces of terrain (referred to as LAND), which will allow them to develop, share, and even monetize their own interactive experiences.
Since its inception, land sales have generated significant revenue for The Sandbox, with one recent sale in April generating $5.9 million worth of revenue in a single day.
Tokens of LAND are non-fungible and can be resold in the same way that stocks are traded in the stock market.
An NFT is a digital asset that serves as a deed of ownership. While the NFT market boom this spring was primarily focused on things like artwork and NBA Top Shot collectible highlights, it also includes in-game items for blockchain-based games, such as character skins, items, trading cards, and other interactive assets, among other things.
