The Sandbox Alpha Seasons

Player Leveling & Rewards Systems
Past Seasons

What are The Sandbox Alpha Seasons?

Alpha Seasons are not the official full release of The Sandbox game. They are Alpha testing events whereby The Sandbox collects community feedback to determine what changes or new features to add to The Sandbox metaverse.
Occasionally, The Sandbox launches Alpha Seasons, which are limited time multi-week events in the metaverse where players can visit new Experiences over time and have an opportunity to participate in Play & Earn.
Each Alpha Season has been different as The Sandbox has introduced more features.

Alpha Season 3 Information (Closed)

The Sandbox is constantly iterating as it applies feedback from the community, so these leveling and reward systems may change at any time in future Seasons.

Seasonal Leveling

During limited periods, players complete quests across many Experiences to earn Ethos Points (EP) and level up.
Quest data and EP are tracked for a leaderboard with additional prizes.


Players claim rewards earned during a season if they own an Alpha Pass. They are raffled by The Sandbox, distributed by Partners, and available for purchase on secondary marketplace.
Players see progression, raffle results, and claim rewards via The Sandbox Dashboard.
Leveling from Alpha Season 3, which helps players earn raffle tickets towards winning an Alpha Pass.

Accessing Active Alpha Seasons

Each Alpha Season might have different access requirements. For example, there might be some gating involved, through the means of Alpha Season Passes. A Medium article is released to announce when a Season will begin and end, with all of the necessary details.
The Sandbox website directs players to download the Game Client software and provides information about what Experiences are available to play while the Alpha Season is still open.
