Ubisoft Partners With The Sandbox
Ubisoft has partnered with Animoca Brands‘ The Sandbox to release 2,066 unique Rabbids avatars, each with its own abilities and customization options. These avatars can be purchased for 100 SAND (around $78 USD). As 2023 is the Year of the Rabbit, these characters are dressed in Chinese New Year style.
Rabbids Avatars As „Key To Future Utility“
The Sandbox has made these Rabbids avatars a „key to future utility“, allowing users to access upcoming drops in-game. Furthermore, The Sandbox expanded its NFT Institute over the summer to include Rabbids characters, NFTs, and accessories.
Ubisoft’s Web3 Efforts
This isn’t Ubisoft’s first foray into web3 technology; in 2018 it developed a prototype called HashCraft which was heavily influenced by Minecraft but was ultimately scrapped. It later invested in gaming studio Horizon and metaverse investment firm Animoca Brands, as well as investing in NFT video game development such as Axie Infinity and Nine Chronicles.
NFTs In Ghost Recon Breakpoint
Finally, Ubisoft also included Tezos-based NFTs in the PC edition of Ghost Recon Breakpoint – another way they have been pushing their Web3 efforts forward with NFTs.
Overall this partnership between Ubisoft and The Sandbox shows that major video game companies are taking note of Web3 technology and acting accordingly with regards to NFTs – offering an exciting new way for players to enjoy their games!
