Improbable, the tech company responsible for Otherside’s M2 technology, is launching two load tests on July 6 and 9.
The entire Web3 space went wild when Yuga Labs announced the launch of Bored Ape Yacht Club’s Metaverse, the Otherside, in April. The premise of this Metaverse was exciting, with Yuga Labs hyping that the Otherside is where “the impossible happens.”
A subsequent minting for Otherdeed, NFT digital land deeds critical to claiming land on Otherside, almost broke down the Internet, with about 55,000 Otherdeed NFTs selling out in just one day. Speculations were rife: Yuga Labs generated nearly $320 million on that day alone, which might have been responsible for the Ethereum gas war that broke out on launch day.
Still, many were left wondering what the Otherside is all about.
The Otherside Voyager’s Journey
In May, the Otherside official Twitter account posted a teaser video for “The Voyager’s Journey.” In particular, it was about the “First Trip,” the first piece of the Obelisk that’s key to journeying through the Otherside.
The Otherdeed NFTs are what users can use to participate in The Voyager’s Journey, a game powered by Improbable’s M2 technology.

According to the Otherside website, thanks to Improbable’s M2 technology, over 10,000 players would be able to “interact simultaneously in a single place, connect with natural voice chat (even in crowds of thousands), experience rich, immersive gameplay supported by AI and physics, and move between metaverses.”
And to whet the appetite of those eagerly awaiting the launch of the First Trip, the project’s official Twitter account tweeted that Improbable is now ready to launch two load tests before the First Trip tech demo.
According to the tweet, the first load test will be on July 6 at 12 PM ET, while the second one will be on July 9 at 12 PM ET. The team is calling on everyone able to join the load tests and “help steer the Otherside platform in the right direction.”
As per the tweet, the load tests’ purpose is to push the Otherside platform to its limits with the help of the Improbable team. Since the First Trip is launching on July 16, it is critical to identify breaking points to create the best possible experience for the tech demo.
However, users can only access both load tests and the First Trip via desktop and laptop devices. Users are encouraged to check the Otherside’s Twitter page regularly since they will be tweeting the link to where the first load test will happen this Wednesday. Also, the load tests are tokengated, which means those who want to participate will need a wallet with at least one Otherdeed NFT.
Initially, 3,000 players will be able to access the load test. The number will increase by 1,000 player increments every 2-3 minutes. If anyone cannot get in because the capacity for that particular 2-3 minute block has been reached, he can retry in the next block.
Only players from North America and Europe can participate in the load tests and the First Trip tech demo. Still, a private live stream will be available to those in non-supported regions so all Voyagers can get to experience the First Trip.
Those who will attend the live stream will need to get verified to be eligible for any benefits related to the First Trip. The Otherside promises that regional streaming options and apps will be expanded to accommodate Voyagers in other countries and platforms for future Voyager’s Journey milestones.
