As we venture further into the era of digitalization, the worlds of motorsports and blockchain technology are merging. Leading the pack is the innovative Web3 electric car racing game, Formula E: High Voltage, developed by Animoca Brands and Amber, set to launch on October 19th.
Formula E: High Voltage is creating an electrifying gaming experience, blending real-world racing with innovative blockchain technologies. The game aims to stand out with its eco-friendly nature, utilizing the energy-efficient Flow blockchain from Dapper Labs.
The integration of the Flow blockchain permits players to take full digital ownership of their in-game items, which is facilitated by NFT technology. Upon starting the game, each player will receive four complementary NFTs, including two cars and two drivers. These NFTs represent a player’s digital assets, which they own and can manage within the game.
The game features key elements from the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, boasting true-to-life tracks from major cities worldwide including Rome, Berlin, New York, and London. Players can look forward to dynamic day and night races, and varying weather conditions, adding a touch of unpredictability to each race.
Each NFT, whether it is a car or a driver, varies in rarity – from common to legendary. These assets also come with a special skill, drawn from a pool of over 100 skills, adding depth to the gameplay. Players will have the opportunity to train drivers, upgrade cars, and strategize, to become the top competitors in the game.
The highlight of the game is the GEN3 race car – positioned as the fastest, lightest, and most powerful race car within the game. Not just fantasy cars, the game also features real-world professional drivers, including the 2023 ABB FIA Formula E World Champion, Jake Dennis.
The game is an exciting addition to the REVV Motorsport ecosystem, a platform known for its blockchain-based racing games like MotoGP Ignition and MotoGP Guru. In line with Formula E’s commitment to sustainability, the use of the Flow blockchain aligns with their strategy of maintaining a net zero carbon footprint. Minting NFTs on the Flow blockchain requires minimal energy, making it a green, eco-aware choice for the game’s infrastructure.
Starting October 17th, a limited quantity of Solo and Team NFT Crates was made available for purchase on the official Formula E: High Voltage website. To purchase this, users must have a Blocto Web3 wallet, with the $REVV token, connected to the Flow Blockchain.
This launch not only serves as an exhilarating moment for the developers but also invites fans and players to engage with Formula E races in a dynamic new digital environment. With this, it is clear that the Formula E: High Voltage is not just a game, but a technological and environmental trailblazer in the world of motorsports.
