The Walking Dead series may be coming to an end, but the Dead continue to live on in Web3. After two public sell outs of their NFT collections, Orange Comet will be releasing their Metaverse-ready, 3D hand-sculpted avatars of some of the favorite characters from the TV series. On October 5, two 5K piece mints (one public, one passholder only) will go on sale.
The Avatars feature fan-favorites Rick, Daryl, Michonne (with her pets), Carol, Mercer and more. These high-quality digital collectibles are one of the required NFTs needed to activate the gamification of the upcoming ‘The Walking Dead Lands’ metaverse; a post-apocalyptic open-world build-and-earn experience.
The cost for the public mint will be $80, priced in ETH immediately before the mint, and if you’re a Walker Access passholder, there will be an additional 0.02 ETH discount. So even if your favorite show may be ending, get your wallets ready so you can stay connected to the TWD community.
