The Sandbox third LAND Presale happened yesterday Tuesday March 31st and almost sold out in the first 30minutes!
This third LAND presale opened on 31 March 2020 and offered 12,384 LANDs, representing 10% of total parcels available for sale on The Sandbox map.
⅔ of all LANDS were sold in the first 30 minutes alone (≃2,000 ETH), 99% were sold out in 5 hours and is now fully complete.
This time, the 12,384 LAND parcels were available at a 20% discount, making a total of approximately 3,400 ETH, or more than $450,000 USD (at current exchange rate).
The first LAND Presale for The Sandbox was held in December 2019 and offered more than 3,000 LANDs that sold out in 4 hours. The second presale opened on 11 February 2020 and offered 6,192 LANDs (representing 5% of total parcels) and almost sold out after one day. This third presale offered more LANDs and sold out even quicker. This confirms the strong interest from gamers, creators, and artists for the decentralized gaming platform that will empower creators through the use of blockchain technology and non-fungible tokens. Fourth and last presale will come later this quarter.
This round included 19 new partners including ATARI: https://medium.com/sandbox-game/announcing-our-third-wave-of-partners-for-the-land-presale-3-23ab4e035283, who will all claim a stake in The Sandbox Metaverse.
Together with ATARI, we are going to recreate game experiences inspired by their most popular games. Players will be able to play versions of Roller Coaster Tycoon or Asteroids with a 3D voxel look. We are also planning on building an Atari theme park-like universe with a variety of their game titles.
The new LAND owners that bought a piece of the Sandbox metaverse will be able to find their LANDS on their marketplace profile, their wallet (Bitski, Metamask, Opera or TokenPocket), or Etherscan and OpenSea.
LAND owners will now be able to add an information, logo, and up to three preview images of the LANDS, which will become available with the launch of the Game Maker, but as it is now can showcase mockups, ideas and any image the owner wants to showcase.

Most importantly, LAND and ESTATE owners will be the first ones to access the Game Maker! Indeed, LAND ownership will grant owners with an exclusive access to the Alpha, coming up later this quarter.
