Turkish Drama Magnificent Century Entering the Metaverse


Magnificent Century, a Turkish drama produced by TIMS Productions’ founder Timur Savcı, will be entering the metaverse with The Sandbox, a subsidiary of Animoca Brands.

The Sandbox metaverse will feature venues from the series and avatars based on its characters, both becoming available in Q4 this year. The experience will be highly interactive for fans.

While the players are to build gaming experiences on the Ethereum blockchain using the platform’s main token SAND through The Sandbox, they will own in-game assets and can generate income from these assets. Also, players with VoxEdit may generate Voxel-based 3D NFTS that can be used in-game, while trading these in The Sandbox’s NFT marketplace.

Until the metaverse release, The Sandbox and Magnificent Century have plans for NFT and avatar collections. Fans will be able to customize their avatars with items from their favorite characters.

Sebastien Borget, COO and co-founder of The Sandbox, said: “We’re excited to welcome such a globally acclaimed Turkish series as Magnificent Century at The Sandbox and further strengthen our growing presence in this important region.”

Savcı, producer of Magnificent Century, said: “We are delighted to collaborate with The Sandbox team in this exciting adventure. Magnificent Century has been a global TV milestone breaking many records and now, by bringing it into the world of gaming through this partnership, we continue to prioritise innovation. We’re happy and excited to be pioneers in building a bridge between our treasured heritage and the new generation. And we can’t wait to hear about The Sandbox players’ experiences in the Magnificent Century land where they can play, explore and create new virtual worlds.”

Arslan Kiran, country manager of The Sandbox, added: “The entrance of a world-renowned Turkish TV series into the metaverse will form the foundations of a new web3 vision on the basis of the entire TV series/film industry.”
