Despite the steep decline in the cryptocurrency market, games based on the metaverse continue to pique the interest of those who wish to discover a virtual land where everyone can enjoy a unique and fun experience beyond the confines of the real world.
Tony Hawk, one of the world’s most famous and recognized skateboarders, announced his collaboration with the blockchain-based virtual world The Sandbox on July 13 to build the “largest virtual skatepark ever made.” This would be the latest in a long line of high-level collaborations for The Sandbox.
According to a video posted by The Sandbox and shared by Hawk, Hawk’s metaverse will not only have a marketplace to sell skateboards and skate accessories but will also provide users with editing tools to build the skatepark of their dreams.
During a presentation, Tony Hawk stated that the skatepark “will be something never seen before.” Significant words, given that his “Tony Hawk Pro Skater” game series has grossed more than $1.4 billion — and includes a plethora of skateparks and routes.
“I have been a fan of new technology all of my life – from the first videogames and home computers with CGI capabilities – so I am fascinated by the metaverse and excited to bring our culture into the virtual landscape of The Sandbox.”
