What is Formula E: High Voltage
Formula E: High Voltage is a racing management game by Animoca Brands, using the license of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championships. In this official racing sports competitors combine the act of racing with a gaming element. Interactive features allow fans to give their driver a virtual boost in the race, while attack mode is an interactive part of the track that provides a boost. It’s basically Formula 1 racing with real cars, but with added mushrooms from Mario Kart.
The Formula E blockchain game has collectible elements, which will include cars, drivers and tracks. You are the Team Principal, making strategic decisions on how to develop your own Formula E Team and manage it to compete in a series of all-electric racing events. Through play-to-earn mechanics players generate earnings based on their performance.
Where Formula E: High Voltage becomes interesting, is with the introduction of the Skill system. Only top-tier cars and drives from the epic, legendary and apex quality receive a special ability called Skill. This ability allows them to temporarily enhance certain stats. For example, Slipstream allows players to accelerate their speed by 10% for 10 seconds, and there’s a 10% it gets triggered. Attack Mode and Energy Management are the key to victory, and every Formula E: High Voltage team manager must take them into account when preparing their strategy.
