Explore The World Of Amazon’s ‘The Wheel Of Time’ With This Amazing Interactive Experience

Amazon’s The Wheel of Time, streaming now on Amazon Prime Video, has already taken its place amongst the highest pantheon of fantasy adaptations, alongside the likes of Game of Thrones and The Witcher. The first season of Amazon’s take on author Robert Jordan’s acclaimed novels (90 million copies sold, and counting) has enjoyed great reviews, and its premiere was the most-watched of any on Amazon Prime in 2021.

Inevitably, such great stats lead to an ever-growing audience, as fans old and new flock to the show and, subsequently, rush to share their thoughts on how its plot twists and turns through a world out of time with itself - a world of magic and mystery and, just occasionally, very messy murder. 

And the best place to share your reactions, predictions and more is on the Gather platform’s new The Wheel of Time metaverse, a specially themed, eminently explorable (and easter eggs-rich) virtual hangout for fans to come together and talk about everything that just happened. This interactive experience, styled like an old-school 16-bit role-playing game (think earlier Final Fantasies, and watch the trailer above) and created in collaboration between Amazon and LADbible Australia, is completely free to use - so click here to give it a try.

Log into The Wheel of Time on Gather at any time to enjoy scavenger hunts, discover hidden prizes, uncover easter eggs, trivia quizzes, unseen clips from the show, and more. There are also live events held in this virtual world, at select times during The Wheel of Time’s season-one run on Amazon Prime Video. Mark your diaries now for 7pm AEDT on December 4 and December 18 (that’s Australia Eastern Daylight Time, so adjust accordingly for whenever you are in the world!).

These events will include fortune telling sessions for users, live music and art creation, and a live reading of Eye of the World, Jordan’s first book in the Wheel of Time series, first published in 1990. Prize giveaways will also take place, with fans able to take home props and costumes from Amazon’s adaptation.

The Wheel of Time interactive map, based on the Westlands region of Jordan’s never-named world, will be live in Gather until December 31. It expands with each episode, new areas opening up with new content, so be sure to gather your friends (no pun intended… or was it?) and head online every Sunday to discuss, debate, and simply share scurrilous gossip about who is or isn’t worthy of channelling the One Power.
