The Sandbox, a decentralized metaverse business and subsidiary of Animoca Brands, has announced a partnership with FaZe Clan. The Sandbox is a popular virtual world that is home to multiple digital real estate firms, and Animoca Brands has recently partnered with the likes of adidas, Warner Music Group, Gucci, and more. Through this partnership, FaZe Clan will work on multiple metaverse projects including developing a virtual land called FaZe World.
FaZe World will sit on a 12 by 12 plot in The Sandbox metaverse, and the two companies will work on hosting virtual events, games, and digital products along with building the digital infrastructure.
“FaZe Clan’s leadership position at the apex of gaming and youth culture presents an ideal opportunity to build bridges and lead the gaming community at large into the metaverse. Through FaZe World and our partnership with The Sandbox, our already digitally native fans can experience FaZe Clan in a new immersive way," said Lee Trink, CEO of FaZe Clan.
