The Sandbox Partners with Ubisoft to Bring Rabbids to Its Metaverse
Ubisoft Will Join The Sandbox Map with Its Own LAND and Players Will Be Able to Incorporate Characters and Game Items from Rabbids in Original Experiences
HONG KONG – February 8, 2022 – The Sandbox, a leading decentralized gaming virtual world and a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, announced today that it has strategically partnered with Ubisoft to introduce Ubisoft game IP elements to The Sandbox gaming metaverse. Ubisoft will have its own LAND entertainment destination with interactive experiences, and voxel characters and items will also be available for players and creators to incorporate into their own experiences using The Sandbox’s free VoxEdit and Game Maker #nocode creation tools.
Work is already underway to create voxelized versions of Rabbids’ characters and items. The following video showcases a glimpse of the eager Rabbids as they prepare to enter The Sandbox map to appear in the Ubisoft LAND and join original experiences created by players: https://youtu.be/jP73-jcMNwU
“We’re excited to bring the Rabbids to The Sandbox community and to empower players to create their own original experiences incorporating elements of our gaming IP. We can’t wait to see how they make the Rabbids’ world their own.” said Guillaume Mammi, Ubisoft’s Senior Manager of New Business and Partnerships. “The Sandbox is an obvious new fun playground addition to the long list of Rabbids world invasions, and a great opportunity for Ubisoft to experiment a metaverse experience for its brands.”
“Ubisoft is a global game company that proved its ability to stay at the forefront of innovation and established its reputation by launching successful franchises and IPs. We’re proud to help it bring the Rabbids, an IP that players already love, and empower its community of fans to create fun experiences and their own original adventures in The Sandbox,” said Sebastien Borget, COO and Co-Founder of The Sandbox. “We welcome Ubisoft into the open Metaverse as we work together to create new possibilities for players, fans, and creators with blockchain and web3.”
“I’m very proud that Ubisoft, one of the most innovative gaming brands that’s globally known for creating numerous iconic game franchises, has chosen The Sandbox metaverse for its very first move into this new kind of interactive experience,” said Bertrand Levy, VP Global Partnerships of The Sandbox.
The Sandbox offers entirely new ways for fans and creators to come together, by providing a start-to-finish game development and asset creation suite, which doesn’t require any prior game development knowledge. Anyone can build worlds and assets in The Sandbox, creating this truly user-generated metaverse. To get started, fans can begin creating their Avatars and downloading the free creation tools at https://www.sandbox.game/en/create/game-maker/.
Part amusement park, part virtual real estate, The Sandbox fully embraces the idea of the metaverse as a continuous shared digital space where worlds and heroes collide to make magic. Ubisoft joins over 200 existing partnerships including The Walking Dead, Snoop Dogg, Adidas, Warner Music Group, Deadmau5, Steve Aoki, Richie Hawtin, The Smurfs, Care Bears, Atari, ZEPETO, and CryptoKitties, all following The Sandbox team’s vision of empowering players to create their own experiences using both original and well-known characters and worlds.
