Berlin is Coming to Upland!

Get ready, Uplanders, because Genesis Week is bringing the city of Berlin to Upland! Berlin is a city where history dances with innovation, and creativity ignites at every corner. Nestled in the heart of Germany, Berlin is a vibrant metropolis that never fails to captivate its visitors.

Collection Reveal Details

We'll reveal collections for the Berlin City release on Friday, June 16th at 9 AM PT. As collections may alter a property's price, double-check your marketplace properties before the reveal to ensure you don’t sell them below the collection-modified value. It may be safer to temporarily remove them from the marketplace before the information is public and the Collections are revealed.

Important Note: All collections to this city release will be tokenized before the release and will remain unmodified. As cities continue to expand, additional collections will be tokenized in this same process to meet the required collection ranges for each city’s tier. Not all collections tokenized are necessarily for the current city release.

There’s a lot going on in Berlin! Stay on track with this schedule shortlist:
