Famous entertainment franchise, Game of Thrones (GoT), has announced its expansion into a new kingdom, the Metaverse, releasing a new NFT collection in collaboration with Warner Bros., Discovery Global Consumer Products and Nifty’s.
The product, known as “Game of Thrones: Build Your Realm” will release NFTs that are inspired by the GoT universe. The NFTs, to be sold in packs, will come in different themes, have different levels of rarity and contain assets such as virtual weapons, fan favorite GoT characters and feature iconic moments from the series. With these NFTs fans get to create their own virtual realms and live out their GoT fantasies (a clever way to keep fans engaged).
A release date is yet to be announced but we are certain that both fans of the franchise and collectors alike look forward to getting their hands on these collectibles. GoT is definitely pushing the boundaries of creativity on this project entering this space. Will the crossover between the large existing fanbase of GoT and NFT buyers be good for the market? Could this release result in a larger fan base? They are taking a similar approach to trading cards, much like NBA Top Shots, and you could vision these Game of Thrones NFTs as kind of fan digital trading cards. Let’s see how fans react to this product.
