Every Sandbox event has been a special adventure in Upland. From the initial unveiling of the build mechanic, to wacky and fun structures, and all out Spud war. The Sandbox events have been a wild ride. That ride is coming to an end soon, as we near the release of the actualProperty Development feature in Upland (packaged with Spark).
To go out with a bang, and help us all create an image of the digital metaverse to come, we are announcing Rebuild California: The Sandbox Finale!
This event will start at 12pm PT on Friday March 5th, and go until…
UPDATE: Release is Tuesday and not Monday.
Brooklyn is finally coming!
For days, the whole Upland metaverse has been excitedly awaiting this announcement. The Upland metaverse is growing fast and the release of Brooklyn has been fast tracked in order to allow our economy and user base to continue to thrive. Here are the full details for how the Brooklyn release will unfold over the next few days.
“Grand Central Terminal stands as a universal symbol between New York City’s past and present.” -JACQUELINE KENNEDY ONASSIS
With the impending release of Brooklyn upon us, Uplanders will need a way to travel between Manhattan and Brooklyn. This is why we’re auctioning off one of the most legendary train stations in the world, and one lucky Uplander will be the owner of the first station to offer transport to the new Upland territory of Brooklyn. Grand Central will also be the primary terminal used to access other East Coast expansion cities to Manhattan, as they open up.
Both Landmark and…
As many of you know, Upland’s growth just keeps amping up! As we’re seeing thousands of new metaverse members weekly, there’s no surprise we’re also seeing many of the inexpensive properties get snapped up. In order to ensure a balanced and welcoming economy for new players, Upland is going to have to speed up geographic growth more than ever before!
This is why the Upland Team is now focused on accelerating its East coast expansion. While we initially planned on evolving the east coast hub incrementally, the growth of our economy now demands that we release these features…
It’s time to have a little fun, and engage in some community building at the same time! Announcing, the FSA Sandbox Party!
As we take another big step towards Spark and property development with the introduction of object positioning on properties, we want to also revisit the spirit of FSA (Fair Start Act) Fest, a series of events we held in October that promoted collaboration between newer players and veterans.
That is why this event is designed to specifically encourage Uplander status players to shine in the sandbox games, becoming more accustomed to the upcoming property development mechanics while simultaneously…

Now that the Sandbox Championship is over, it is time to prepare for two Sandbox challenges with a special inverted dynamic! These Sandbox events are designed to ease the neighborhood tensions from the War, and allow players to refocus on the future of Upland’s property development, by building their own personal competitive strategy, and removing the dreaded cell tower. Similar to the previous challenges, players will get points for building structures on their properties.
If you’ve been hanging around the Upland metaverse for a while, by now you know that we are constantly working on new and innovative features, as well as adapting our roadmap to support the best path toward mass adoption, and a robust NFT economy. In 2020 we released a comprehensive roadmap that allowed our community to rally around the vision of a new type of game. Part game, part metaverse, part digital community, and yet still more than the sum of its parts. You can read more about our 2020 accomplishments at the bottom of this post.
