The Motorsport Game ‘Torque Drift 2’ Acquires a Prestigious Development Team
Animoca Brands and its subsidiary Grease Monkey Games (GMG) have renewed their association with Formula DRIFT in North America and Japan. The benefits of the collaboration will be shown in GMG’s upcoming blockchain motorsport game ‘Torque Drift 2.’
GMG and Formula DRIFT had already formed a long-term partnership for the development of the popular Web2 motorsport game Torque Drift, but its expansion into the production of its sequel will see Formula DRIFT enter the metaverse for the first time, as Torque Drift 2 will incorporate collectible and utility-driven ‘Official Formula DRIFT NFTs,’ as well as engaging virtual experiences that will be integrated into Animoca Brands’ Web3 REVV Motorsport ecosystem
REVV Motorsport is an ecosystem of racing blockchain games powered by REVV developed by Animoca Brands, which includes popular titles like REVV Racing, MotoGP Ignition, Formula E: High Voltage, and now Torque Drift 2. Each game is powered by the REVV token, which acts as the ecosystem’s fundamental currency of utility, purchase, and activity, ensuring players have complete digital ownership of their assets in the game.
Ryan Sage, the president of Formula DRIFT, said of the expanded relationship, “Formula DRIFT has set the benchmark for worldwide racing series.” That’s why we’re so happy to collaborate with Animoca Brands on Torque Drift 2 for both the gaming side and the new NFT component, which offers up some really exciting prospects for both the sport and fans alike.”
Although a release date for the game has not yet been confirmed, make sure to see the international premiere of the Torque Drift 2 reveal trailer, which will be televised live during a Formula DRIFT broadcast on May 7th.
