Animoca Brands and Grease Monkey Games partner for Torque Drift 2
Animoca Brands and Grease Monkey Games have formed an industry partnership and collaboration with Formula DRIFT in North America and Japan. This partnership will be leveraged in Grease Monkey Games’ new blockchain motorsport game Torque Drift 2.
The deal itself, which was struck in mid-April, allows for the long-standing partnership between Grease Monkey Games and Formula DRIFT even further, into the metaverse and beyond. Torque 2 Drift will be uniquely set apart from contemporaries by bringing direct player ownership to the players and fans.
Torque Drift 2 is the latest title in a series of motorsports games; harnessing blockchain technology to allow players to customise, race and challenge other players in its range of race-car NFTs. As can be imagined, NFTs represent a core feature in the game, enabling provable ownership, including opportunities such as play-to-earn and the trading of items on secondary marketplaces.
Arran Potter, the founder and managing director of Grease Monkey Games, commented: “We’re excited to bring Formula DRIFT into the open metaverse and continue to deliver the ultimate Formula DRIFT game experience to our users. With Torque Drift 2 being the official and only blockchain game of Formula DRIFT, players can expect a comprehensive and immersive Formula DRIFT experience that has never been seen before.”
