Seemingly pulling together every ‘what if…’ idea from a racing game’s fans wildest dreams, Infinite Drive aims to become the metaverse’s premier (and premium) racing experience. And with ideas by the truckload and a great gaming heritage behind it, we’re backing this one to be a winner.
Being a creation of The Tiny Digital Factory, the leading developer and publisher behind REVV Racing and GT Manager, Infinite Drive is already streaking from the starting line. But the title aims to go further and faster than anything they’ve previously built.
Fueled by Web3, Infinite Drive is set to not only deliver the great driving gameplay players demand, with the kind of real-world auto maker licences that only the pros can deliver, but will include unique skills such as ‘racing to earn’ – taking control of another person’s top-ranked NFT car, entering official races, competitions and then – if you’ve got the skills – sharing the winning’s with your ride’s owner.
Recreating the greats
The Tiny Digital Factory already has cars from world-class carmakers such as McLaren, Porsche, Mercedes AMG, Ford, Renault, Alpine, Ruf and W Motors but are promising even more licensees in the next few months delivering over 150 officially licensed cars from more than 20 automotive brands for use in Infinite Drive.
And the gameplay is set to be pure simulation quality. The team aim to let the player feel, hear and experience each car’s unique characteristics out on track. And – of course – you’ll be able to take ownership – literally – of the famous cars in the game as Infinite Drive offers an initial offering of 5,000 licensed NFT cars from those real-world brands, which give access to the game’s closed Alpha.
The more valuable the car, the greater its perfomance on the track and the greater your chance of sharing in the winnings – be it as driver or owner.
And if that doesn’t sound intriguing, don’t forget that you don’t need to purchase a car to play, with the full game being also free-to-play on iOS and Android.
“With its game-first engine architecture and unique digital car ownership, Infinite Drive is the zenith of twenty years of making driving simulation games,” says Stephane Baudet, Founder and CEO at The Tiny Digital Factory.
“For decades, racing fans have been staring lovingly at dream cars in virtual garages. So we’ve used Web3 tech to make it possible for gamers to actually own and earn from their vehicles, alongside a stunning player experience out on track. Infinite Drive offers the accessibility of mobile games, combined with play and earn, providing the tools to reward passionate players who are already organizing racing events and helping us create the very best driving experience.”
Potential drivers and owners will be able to join the Infinite Drive community via the project’s Discord in June, with early access to Cars Series 1 coming in summer 2022 and a full open alpha – including additional car series and car renting – coming in the autumn.
