The Metaverse is set to change the way we experience media
The Metaverse is not only changing the Internet, it is changing the way we experience media. It us becoming a platform for new virtual adventures unlike anything we have seen before.
Much of what we watch every day, such as movies and TV shows, is a passive, one-way experience. The Metaverse has the power to make our media experiences more engaging by transforming them into an interactive 3D world. A recent collaboration between a popular Metaverse platform and two popular Netflix shows is proof of this exciting shift.
Two of the most popular Netflix original series are set to be made into virtual worlds
In recent posts on X (formerly Twitter), the Metaverse platform The Sandbox unveiled a partnership with French media company Baijay Group, the rights holder of both “Black Mirror” and “Peaky Blinders”.
The joint effort will focus on creating and launching Black Mirror and Peaky Blinders-themed virtual experiences. Metaverse users will be able to select characters from both original series as their avatars, unlock new areas, and freely explore the worlds of “Black Mirror” and “Peaky Blinders”. Special fetch quests and fan gathering experiences will also be available.
Over the years, both series have received critical acclaim and enormous popularity. It seems like a logical decision to bring them to the Metaverse to give fans an even more compelling experience. At this time, specific details about the planned Metaverse experiences are being kept under wraps, with more information to be revealed soon.
“Black Mirror” and “Peaky Blinders” are among the most critically acclaimed original series
The Black Mirror original series first aired in 2011 and explores the ways in which humanity struggles with the dark side of modern technology. The 2013 series Peaky Blinders is set in early 20 century England. It revolves around Tommy Shelby, the leader of the Birmingham-based Peaky Blinders gang and Inspector Chester Campbell’s mission to capture him.
