Ultra and The Sandbox partner for co-marketing activities and cross blockchain experiences.
The Sandbox and its suite of tools will be published on Ultra Games leveraging its ecosystem communities composed of gamers and game developers. Ultra will be present on The Sandbox virtual world to create game experiences, events but also to evangelize its technologies. In addition Ultra and The Sandbox will collaborate to enable cross-chain interoperability of NFTs.
Ultra is a next-generation game distribution platform creating a fair ecosystem for the future of games distribution with gaming giants such as Ubisoft, Atari and AMD already onboard. It’s creating a one stop shop entertainment platform enabling gamers to play, discover, buy, trade, earn, compete, and socialize with zero friction.
The Sandbox is building a unique virtual world where players can build, own, and monetize their gaming experiences using NFTs (non-fungible tokens) and $SAND, the main utility token of the platform. The Sandbox’s vision is to offer a deeply immersive metaverse in which virtual worlds and games will be created collaboratively and without central authority.
Creators can download The Sandbox Game Maker at http://gamemaker.sandbox.game or discover it on Ultra Games.
Ultra will be distributing The Sandbox and its suite of tools, VoxEdit and Game Maker, making it available to a wide range of gamers through its Ultra Games game distribution platform.
Ultra will incentivize various communities in and outside of The Sandbox to come to Ultra lands and create unique arts, games and events, rewarding creators with exclusive NFTs as well as $UOS and $SAND, creating a cross experience between The Sandbox and Ultra’s ecosystem.
In addition, The Sandbox and Ultra are starting research on the interoperability of NFTs between the Ethereum blockchain and Ultra, aiming to facilitate the trade and exchange of digital assets earned by players through the different environments.
“This partnership crystalizes the first step of Ultra into the metaverse by building bridges between our community and The Sandbox community.
Ultra’s experience is designed for such type of collaboration and starting with a product like The Sandbox offers us the opportunity to push blockchain technology further into exciting uncharted territories.”
