London Expansion Collection Reveal

On Monday, November 13th, at 9 AM PT, we’ll reveal Collections that are a part of this expansion. As collections may alter a property's price, make sure to 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 expansion 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 expansion.

London Expansion Collection Reveal Schedule 

London Expansion Collections will be revealed through the following process.

  • Right before the Collection Reveal at around 8:55 AM PT, any unminted properties in the London expansion areas that are part of Collections will be locked. 
  • At 9 AM PT, we will reveal the London expansion Collections and the Collection Key (which allows players to confirm the Collection on the blockchain) on Discord, In-Game Chat, and as an update to this post. 
  • Unminted properties that match the announced London expansion Collections will then be repriced according to the corresponding Collection level they match.
  • At around 9:30 AM PT, we will unlock the unminted properties part of the London expansion Collections for minting.
