Animoca Brands, in collaboration with Ember, is set to release their newest Web3 game, “Formula E: High Voltage” on October 19. This electric car racing game integrates features from the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, including challenging city center tracks, offering players an immersive racing experience.
The game operates on the Flow blockchain, known for its energy efficiency. This choice not only aligns with the game’s electric car theme but also facilitates the digital ownership of in-game items as NFTs. With growing concerns about the environmental impact of blockchain activities, the use of the Flow blockchain emphasizes a move towards more sustainable entertainment options in the open metaverse.
Purchase Options and Integrations
Participants in “Formula E: High Voltage” will require four NFTs: a pair of cars and two drivers. What sets this game apart is that every car and driver is an NFT, each with distinct rarity tiers and skills. The game proudly features the GEN3 race car, recognized as the pinnacle of electric race car efficiency. Players can also expect to see other official and fantasy cars and drivers, including the acclaimed Jake Dennis, the 2023 ABB FIA Formula E World Champion, and his Andretti Porsche 99X Electric GEN3 car.
Starting from October 17, 2023, enthusiasts can purchase Solo and Team NFT Crates on the game’s official platform. The Solo NFT Crate, priced between $20 and $30, contains either an official or fantasy car or driver NFT. In contrast, the Team NFT Crate, priced between $119 and $149, offers two official or fantasy Formula E cars and two official or fantasy Formula E drivers. Notably, one NFT in the Team Crate is guaranteed to be of epic or legendary rarity. To facilitate purchases, buyers will need a Blokto wallet linked to the Flow blockchain and can transact using the REVV token.
Revv Motorsport Ecosystem
Formula E: High Voltage” is more than just a stand-alone game—it’s a vital component of the expansive REVV motorsport ecosystem. This dynamic ecosystem brings together a diverse collection of licensed racing blockchain games, offering players a broad spectrum of racing experiences.
Will Griffiths, a representative from Animoca Brands, recently discussed the ever-evolving landscape of this ecosystem. He emphasizes the transformative potential of NFTs and blockchain technologies, not just as gaming tools but as instruments of value and ownership.
For fans, this means a heightened sense of engagement and immersion, as they can truly own unique digital assets. For players, it translates to an enriched gameplay experience, where achievements and assets have tangible value and can be traded or retained as collectibles.
A New Era for Electric Car Racing
As the lines between the digital and physical worlds continue to blur, “Formula E: High Voltage” exemplifies how innovations in Web3 gaming can bridge these dimensions. By combining the excitement of electric car racing with the capabilities of the Flow blockchain and NFTs, Animoca Brands and Ember are not only enhancing the gaming experience but also pushing the boundaries of sustainable digital entertainment. With NFT offerings and seamless integrations into the wider REVV motorsport ecosystem, “Formula E: High Voltage” is poised to drive the future of racing games in the metaverse. As the launch date approaches, the racing community and blockchain enthusiasts alike await with bated breath, ready to embark on this electrifying journey.
