Battle Racers, a blockchain game by Altitude Games for the Decentraland platform, will begin its item pre-sale on May 15, 2019, giving players early access to items and customizations that can be used in the Battle Racers game.
Battle Racers is an action-packed arcade game where you will build, race, and battle model cars on arcade-sized tracks. You can mix and match parts and weapons to create your perfect car, then use its combat skills to beat other players to the finish line. Cars can also be tokenized into ERC-721 non-fungible tokens, giving each race car a recorded history of wins, exclusive gameplay buffs, and the ability to be traded on the open market.
The game is currently in beta and will be a launch title when Decentraland is fully released.
Altitude Games, the game studio behind Battle Racers, will open a closed multiplayer demo to select parties before the item pre-sale.
“The item pre-sale will give players and collectors the chance to get exclusive car parts that no one else will have. It’s the first time that blockchain gamers can take part in our game’s development – to see, own, and very soon race
the cars that they can build from parts in our pre-sale. They will become our very first batch of racers.”- Luna Javier, Creative Director and Co-Founder, Altitude Games
