The Sandbox teamed up with Skybound Entertainment to bring The Walking Dead to their virtual world, plus standalone characters and assets players can use to create original The Walking Dead adventures.
The Sandbox, a decentralized gaming virtual world and a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, announced today that it has partnered with Skybound Entertainment to bring an authentic new The Walking Dead experience to The Sandbox's open gaming metaverse.
Inside The Sandbox metaverse, the carefully integrated The Walking Dead game experience will encourage gamers to unite with friends and other players as they overcome the day-to-day requirements of surviving a walker-infested habitat: scavenging for food, gathering resources, building walls, nurturing relationships, making alliances and more.
The Sandbox is scheduled to launch its first public Alpha for players in Summer 2021, enabling anyone to experience a social hub and gain the power to build a fantastic collection of fantasy and role-playing adventures that can be traded with other players, creators, and artists on the platform.
“Our collaboration with The Walking Dead provides a whole new level of entertainment to our gaming metaverse, being one of the most exciting additions to our growing list of well-known IPs that exist alongside user-generated worlds created within The Sandbox,” said Sebastien Borget, COO and Co-Founder of The Sandbox. “Fans will be able to step into an immersive, action-packed The Walking Dead experience as well as add their favorite Skybound characters and assets to their very own game worlds.”
