SEOUL, May 12 (Yonhap) -- Samsung C&T Corporation Resort Group announced on the 12th that it would be launching "Everland Metaverse" next month.

 

The Everland Metaverse, which is scheduled to be released on 17th June, offers three activities in a virtual space, including T Express (type of roller coaster), Water gun fight, and firefly catching experience.

The 30-second teaser that Everland released on social media the day before has recorded 100,000 views in just one day as of this morning.

Those who saw the videos reacted to the video with some saying, "I was scared to ride on the T-Express, so I would love to at least try it on the metaverse."

Those who completed the mission on the Metaverse will also be presented with gifts including the priority boarding passes for real-life rides and product vouchers.

The Everland metaverse will be created in the form of a map in the virtual play space "PlayDapp Land" launched on Roblox, which is currently used by 700 million people around the world.

Samsung C&T Resort Group has been preparing to build Metaverse since last March with Playdapp, a blockchain service platform, to provide a unique experience that combines the virtual world and the reality while also expanding Everland's fictional world to the digital world.

Everland plans to expand and implement the metaverse beyond rides, to speedways, and golf courses after the first public release.

"We will continue to expand digilog (term that combines two concepts with opposite meanings, digital and analog) contents so that people would be able to experience not only Metaverse, but Everland anytime and anywhere," said an official from Samsung C&T Corporation Resort Group.
