Legends Of The Mara Begins On September 26th. Here's What You Need To Know:
Voyagers will be breaking on through to the Otherside to next week to farm fragments and fight the shattered in an effort to save the metaverse in Yuga Labs’ Legend of The Mara strategy game.
Things were anything but boring across the Yugaverse today as Yuga Labs announced that Season 1 of its Legends of The Mara game will begin on September 26th.
“Legends of the Mara Season 1 open beta goes live Sept. 26,” Yuga Labs tweeted from its OthersideMeta account along with a 64 second teaser trailer. “During S1, hatch Mara. Koda holders, get a head start on farming Fragments and hunting Shattered. Beta loot will be mintable at the end of each season and include items for LoTM’s expanding gameplay.”
In Yuga Labs’ new LOTM trailer, the company revealed some of the Shattered that Voyagers will have to fight during the game and highlighted some of the loot that they will be able to earn during season 1.
Following Yuga Labs’ announcement, the Company’s VP of Product, CFort9, shared a nine part Twitter thread where he said that LOTM is an idle game that will be a less time consuming than other Yuga Labs games like HV-MTL Forge.
“We recognize that some holders are particularly busy,” he wrote. “LOTM is an idle experience requiring less day-to-day engagement. For most players, the first week in LOTM will be about incubating and hatching your first Mara. This first season is all about preparing for the challenges ahead, so it’s ok to take your time. There will be many seasons you can use to develop your capabilities.”
As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, in order to participate in Legends of the Mara next week, Voyagers must burn their Otherdeeds for Yuga Labs’ new dynamic Otherdeed collection dubbed “Otherdeed Expanded.”
By burning their original Otherdeeds, Voyagers will receive a new Otherdeed expanded NFT along with either a Farmer, Hunter, or Enchanter Vessel that they can nest once LOTM begins on September 26th.
“Otherdeed Expanded is your key to unlocking future gameplay experiences and activations, including Otherside: Legends of the Mara,” Yuga Labs wrote in a press release in April 2023. “Otherside will be best experienced using dynamic NFTs that can change over time. The new smart contract will offer Voyagers who choose to burn their original Otherdeed NFT access to Yuga’s new gaming experiences and activations outside of Otherside (the game). Two key components of Legends of the Mara are the use of Otherside Koda NFTs and Otherside Vessel NFTs, which will be integral pieces to playing the game. Throughout the course of gameplay, there will be opportunities to earn new entitlements, upgrade existing entitlements, and evolve entitlements earned, which we’ll learn more about closer to the release date of Legends of the Mara.”
