Ubisoft Is Bringing Rayman, 'Captain Laserhawk' NFT Avatars to The Sandbox


Assassin’s Creed maker Ubisoft is arguably the most active major video game publisher playing in the blockchain world today. Now, the firm is expanding its reach even further by launching another set of NFT avatars for the metaverse game, The Sandbox.

Avatars based on Ubisoft’s new Netflix animated series, “Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix,” will be added to The Sandbox. And since the adults-oriented show itself mashes up characters and franchises from Ubisoft’s history, so too will the avatar collection.

A total of 1,866 unique player avatars will be released via NFTs on Polygon, an Ethereum scaling network, and the collection includes renditions of classic Ubisoft action hero Rayman, as well as Jade and Pey’j, heroes of the cult classic game Beyond Good & Evil. Most of the avatars have a futuristic, cyberpunk-esque vibe similar to that of the show.

It’s not yet known how much The Sandbox and Ubisoft will charge for the avatars, but the mint is scheduled for November 29.

Ubisoft previously released Sandbox avatars based on its Rabbids franchise (itself spun out from the Rayman series) in February, and sold them for 100 SAND each. That’s only about $42 worth right now, but was $78 worth of SAND back in February.

“Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix” is an animated series spun out from the game Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, but it brings in characters from and makes references to a whole host of Ubisoft franchises, including Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell, and Ghost Recon.

Ubisoft has been heavily active in the Web3 world, most recently announcing plans last week to do a free Ethereum NFT drop around its upcoming Champions Tactics game on the Oasys blockchain. The publisher also recently announced a collaboration with Immutable, the gaming platform tied to the Immutable X and Immutable zkEVM networks.

The publisher’s blockchain moves stretch back years, most prominently with the late 2021 launch of in-game Tezos NFT items in Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. Ubisoft has also supported the Cronos and Hedera ecosystems, created a spinoff game based on the fantasy soccer NFT game Sorare, and released Rabbids as Reddit NFT avatars.
