One of, if not the top metaverse platforms, The Sandbox, which is a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, is launching Alpha Season 3 at some point this month. The Alpha Season 3 expands on the successful Alpha Season 2, which attracted over 325,000 players.
Alpha Season 3: A Summary
To summarise the words of The Sandbox’s COO, Sébastien Borget: “Alpha Season 3 will bring more multiplayer experiences, more partners, more creators, more rewards for owners and players through play-and-earn mechanics, more collections, and more excitement”.
Quite simply, Alpha Season 3 will be a bigger and better version of previous seasons of The Sandbox. Solo and multiplayer content will feature, including experiences from brand partners such as Snoop Dogg, The Walking Dead, Deadmau5, Sueco, Warner Music Group, Ubisoft’s Rabbids, BAYC, World of Women, The Smurfs, Steve Aoki, Metapride, Care Bears, and Atari.
Over the course of the Season, players can level up, and participate in Raffles to earn Alpha Season 3 Passes that grant a chance to win up to 500 SAND, climb the Leaderboard, and earn SAND rewards.
For further details, The Sandbox has released a season 3 trailer which you can view on YouTube.
With season 3, The Sandbox looks to further cement itself as the top metaverse platform.
The Sandbox Alpha Season 3 is going to be Web3’s greatest use case of interoperability yet, enabling over 140K NFT owners from collections such as Bored Ape Yacht Club, Doggies, World of Women, CoolCats, Clone X, and Aoki to seamlessly take their digital assets from Web3 communities and use them directly as avatars in The Sandbox. This marks the beginning of a new era in true ownership and consistency in online identity across platforms.
Why The Sandbox?
With many metaverse platforms around, it is easy to question why people choose The Sandbox over the others, particularly their competitor, Decentraland. There are probably a few answers to this.
Firstly, their partnerships are unreal. The amount of huge companies and celebrities they are working with is unmatched. From Adidas and the Walking Dead to The Smurfs and Care Bears, or even Snoop Dogg and Steve Aoki.
Also, the gameplay is arguably the most developed out of the lot, with huge teams working tirelessly to improve it on a daily basis. Now, with Alpha Season 3, they are building further.
About The Sandbox
The Sandbox is one of the biggest metaverse gaming platforms. Alongside Decentraland, they probably take up the biggest market share.
The Sandbox’s partners include Snoop Dogg, The Walking Dead, Adidas and The Smurfs. Beyond this, many big collections have made voxel, Sandbox-ready avatars, like CyberKongz with their CyberKongz VX collection.
It has also shown a clear capability to host events, similarly to its major competitor, Decentraland.
Alpha Season 3 is just their next move in proving themselves as the top name in the space.
