The Ethereum-based metaverse game, The Sandbox, announced that it would introduce the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Elvis Presley, into the metaverse.

The Sandbox confirmed the release date of a series of officially licensed Elvis Presley NFT avatars, which will be on August 8 to celebrate Presley’s long-lasting legacy.

A total of 3000 avatars will be available, featuring outfits and hairstyles from different stages of Presley’s career. Each avatar will also have its own set of unique emotes, inspired by the singer’s famous dance moves that capture the essence of his electrifying stage presence.

These NFT-based avatars will be minted on Polygon and fully playable in all future The Sandbox multiplayer experiences, allowing fans to step into the metaverse as the iconic performer. Furthermore, the avatars will unlock upcoming features and content.

On August 8, a 24-hour presale will be available exclusively for a select group of lucky holders. This includes those who own The Sandbox land, those who have allowlist spots, and those who hold certain collections. The public sale will begin on August 9, followed by the revelation of all avatars on August 11. There are four different rarity levels, with one level valued at 100 SAND (approximately $41 at the time of writing).

Moreover, owning an Elvis NFT comes with added benefits. Holders will have governance and voting rights for the Elvis Legacy Council DAO, allowing fans to play an important role in shaping the future of Elvis Presley’s digital expansion.

The Elvis Presley Legacy Council believes that Elvis fans should have a say in the direction and future of the Elvis Presley Digital Estate. Through an immersive experience in the metaverse, they aim to bring the spirit of Elvis Presley to life and create an impressive digital tribute to one of music’s greatest legends.
