Upcoming video game 'Legacy' sells $55m of virtual land in a week
Virtual land is on fire as always. Upcoming video game ‘Legacy’ recently sold $55m of virtual land in just one week. The game follows a theme like that of a business simulator, and holds familiarities to the popular game Monopoly.
The game is expected to launch on PC in 2022, and will also have its own cryptocurrency which is to be called ‘LegacyCoin’. The main principle of the game is to get as much land as possible and rule the lands.
With that, many people, as can be seen by the huge amount spent on virtual land this week, are getting all the land and plots that they can now to get a nice amount of land from launch.
