Sandbox announced that it will be entering strategic partnerships to create a Mega City. This Mega City will feature film, music, entertainment, acting, professional services, finance, real estate, and gaming. Moreso, development of the city is underway and users will be able to access it in no time.
Therefore, players will be able to own LANDs and other in-game assets as exclusive NFTs soon. Speaking of LAND, it will become available sooner rather than later. This is because Sandbox is announcing the sale of the Mega City Land Sale.
This announcement was made via the Sandbox Medium Page. Here are the details of this Land sale.

This sale will hold on the 13th of January 2022 at 1 PM UTC. Come the 13th, there will be 61 regular LANDs and 95 premium LANDs for sale. The regular LAND will sell for 1,011 SAND. For premium LANDs, buyers will have to pay 4,683 SAND to acquire them. Also, there will be estates up for grabs too. Unlike LANDs, they will sell via an auction method.
