Yuga’s Otherside Gears Up for ‘Legends of the Mara’ Open Beta Launch Yuga Labs announced that it will be debuting the open beta for its upcoming Otherside metaverse game, Legends of the Mara, sometime in September. Yuga first demoed Legends of the Mara to a small group of Otherdeed holders in July. First announced in March 2022, Otherside continues to represent the largest expansion of the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) universe, serving as an MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) that is directly linked to the BAYC ecosystem. Legends of the Mara, a 2D web-based game, is rooted in the Otherside metaverse world, where members leverage their Otherdeed NFTs alongside a new NFT that will allow them to farm sediments, hatch their vessels, and fight something called “The Shattered” – with the goal of placing as high as possible. X user Hunter Solaire provided a comprehensive breakdown of how the game is structured and what it looks like. For Otherdeed NFT holders, their virtual land collectibles offer them two different tiers – environment tiers and sediment tiers. Environment tiers determine the number of “workers” you can have, while sediment tiers determine the number of “resources” you produce. However, “workers” also have tiers of their own – Koda, Mara (hunters, farmers, enchanters), and Kodamara (evolved Mara).
