All you need to know about The Sandbox Alpha Season 3
Mark your calendars. The Sandbox Alpha Season 3 finally has a date! This time, the long-awaited play-to-earn event will run for 10 weeks, starting from August 24th. According to the team, the upcoming season will be open to all with new earning mechanics for different players. Let's dive in!
Over the course of 10 weeks, players can take part in more than 90 playable experiences with over 650 quests to complete. The Sandbox Alpha Season 3 will also feature new maps and playable external avatars in collaboration with leading brand partners such as Snoop Dogg, Steve Aoki, BAYC, WoW, and so much more.
Just like the last season, there are 10,000 Alpha Passes up for grabs in Season 3. To increase your chances of winning one, you must complete various quests to earn raffle tickets to enter the draw. An S3 Alpha Pass will allow you to claim up to 500 SAND tokens this time.
However, NFT holders can earn SAND even if they don't have an S3 Alpha Pass. Upon completing all levels, a LAND holder will receive 180 SAND, an Avatar owner will earn 60 SAND, and an NFT collector will gain 30 SAND.
Skillful speedrunners out there are in for a treat as well. In Alpha Season 3, The Sandbox will give away 1.5 million SAND to the top 5,000 players on the leaderboard. How it works is that the ranking depends on the number of Ethos Points (EP) earned and the time taken to complete the quests. For each quest you do, you'll gain some EPs. The faster you complete them, especially for harder quests, the better your ranking will be. At the end of the season, the player who takes the top spot will walk away with 30,000 SAND worth $36k as of writing!
To prevent cheating, The Sandbox now requires players to submit KYC before joining any raffles or claiming an S3 Alpha Pass. Given that, only one account is allowed per player. Gamers must also ensure they are not using a VPN set to Japan while playing The Sandbox Alpha Season 3. If that happens, they won't be able to access the same rewards and leaderboard above.
Even so, one of the most exciting P2E events in The Sandbox metaverse is coming soon. Those who want to join the fun will need to create an account in The Sandbox.
