Alpha Season 3 kicked off on August 24, 2022, and is currently in full swing. Here’s everything you need to know about what The Sandbox has been up to, and how you can make the most of the current Alpha Season.

With a wide range of features, there’s sure to be something for everyone. Some of the most popular metaverse brands have agreed to feature their summer content, including Atari, Steve Aoki, Snoop Dogg, World of Women, The Walking Dead, Bored Ape Yacht Club, Care Bears, and The Smurfs. Experiences are going to be both solo and multiplayer. 


As Sebastien Borget, co-founder and COO, puts it, “…Together with the most creative and engaged Web3 communities, we have a chance to define open metaverse culture and shape the future of our social interactions.” 


There will be a whopping 140,000+ ‘voxelized’ 3D avatars to choose from, including those of the most coveted NFT (PFP) collections that can ‘play’ in The Sandbox Alpha Season 3 (think 3D versions of BAYC, CloneX, and World of Women pieces).

NFT collectors, avatar, and LAND owners, and Alpha Pass holders can receive receive payouts of 30 to 500 SAND by engaging with the current Alpha Season.

Exploring The Sandbox 


If you’re intrigued, why not explore the season for yourself? Access and playing is open to all users for free, and you can register here.



Log on to the website; you’ll need to connect your crypto wallet. To prevent multi-accounting and cheating, Sandbox Alpha requires you to complete a KYC - so you’ll need a couple of extra minutes to sign up. Customize your avatar, and you’re good to go.


We’ll see you there!


A Quick Note on Security


At Everyrealm, we want to remind you to always put security first in your metaverse journey. If you’re using a crypto wallet to get the full Alpha Season experience, make sure to be extra careful when clicking any links, even those from trusted accounts.


Unfortunately, even verified accounts get hacked with malicious scams from time to time. This can happen to just about anyone, so make sure to tread cautiously when you see offers for giveaways or similar NFT related promotions. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is! Always put your security first when exploring the metaverse.



We hope you enjoy your Alpha Season 3 experience. For more updates on Fantasy Islands, sign up for our mailing list and follow us on Twitter!
