Animoca Brands proudly presents first-of-its-kind arcade simulation racing game on blockchain
10 August 2021 — HONG KONG — Excitement is accelerating around Animoca Brands’ imminent alpha launch of REVV Racing, the first-of-its-kind blockchain game: a skill-based action arcade automobile racing simulation giving you full and real-time first-person control of your car. REVV Racing opens to the public with the Alpha Inaugural, a tournament held on 11-17 August 2021 with an impressive prize pool of US$150,000. Get started at www.revvracing.com.
REVV Racing is the newest play-to-earn title in the REVV Motorsport metaverse of racing games, and is a milestone in Animoca Brands’ ambitious plan to develop blockchain-based games that have the quality, look, and feel of traditional video games.
In REVV Racing, cars are non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and all play sessions are registered on blockchain – but it looks and plays like the 3D car racing games already familiar to millions of gamers all over the world.
Traditional video games are provided to users on a licensing basis in which game publishers retain ultimate ownership of all content. However, the NFTs used in blockchain-based games are truly ownable by players, allowing players to enjoy digital property rights in their games – something that is not generally possible in non-blockchain video games and in most available car racing games.
Holders of NFT cars in REVV Racing are free to do anything they want with their NFTs, such as selling them on a marketplace for money, transferring them to friends, or using them in other supported games.
Yat Siu, the co-founder and chairman of Animoca Brands, commented: “REVV Racing is not going to be your typical blockchain game: we are merging the thrill and skill of real-time 3D car racing with the advantages of blockchain, including true ownership of in-game assets, play-to-earn, and enhanced security. The future of play is games with the look and feel of the high-quality products that gamers are accustomed to, but that also empower players with digital property rights.”

Please note that REVV Racing is currently in alpha version and is still undergoing extensive development and testing. REVV Racing is being built on Polygon (formerly known as Matic).
