Season 1 cars are arriving this December on the Matic Network sidechain!

Attention, racers!

Fasten your seatbelts because it’s going to be an exciting ride for the remaining weeks of 2019. Today, we’re bringing you news about Early Access, our migration to a new sidechain, and a crate sale for new Season 1 car parts! So without further ado, let’s go over each item one by one.

Sign up for Early Access

As mentioned in our previous update, a playable version of Battle Racers will be available to everyone starting November 25, 2019. This will allow you to play online and race with other players in real time, and since it’s still in Early Access, please expect the build to have its fair share of bugs as well as features that are still under construction.

This time, we are no longer limiting the number of players who can join. We are also giving away crates to several lucky winners! To join the raffle, simply sign up through this form on or before the cut-off date December 20, 2019. All previous beta testers (with the “test driver” tag on Discord) are automatically added, so you don’t have to apply again. All winners will be drawn randomly after the cut-off date.

Switching to the Matic Network sidechain

As we prepare the game for the upcoming Decentraland Marketplace, Battle Racers will be switching to a new sidechain built by Matic Network, a blockchain scalability platform which provides secure, scalable, and instant Ethereum transactions.

This means that all of your Battle Racers NFTs, including crates and car parts, will be automatically migrated. There will be no additional action needed on your end. We will be sharing more about our migration to Matic Network in a separate update.

Season 1 crate sale happening in December

Now for our biggest news: In conjunction with our migration, we will also be holding a sale featuring new ERC20 crates with exclusive car parts from Season 1 on December 2 to 20, 2019. These new parts will be minted on the Matic sidechain. At the same time, watch out for exclusive events featuring limited edition cars from our partner blockchain games, CryptoKitties and My Crypto Heroes.

Since the game will be playable by the time our sale launches, you’ll be able to race using your new Season 1 car parts immediately upon unlocking your new crates!

Here’s a sneak peek of some of the brand new cars from our Season 1 collection.

These are just a few of the new cars and there will be many more when Season 1 launches! We’ll share more details about the crate sale and other cars as we get closer to December.
