Formula E's Gen2 car set to join Real Racing 3 mobile video game

Formula E's new Gen2 car that will race in the 2018/19 season is to be featured in EA's Real Racing 3 mobile video game

FE claims that Real Racing 3 has had over 400 million downloads and more than one million daily active users and the game has previously featured motorsport events such as Le Mans in recent years.

Its FE addition means players will be able to compete in a selection of worldwide challenges against other gamers, including energy conservation competitions and head-to-head races while driving the new FE car.

The official liveries of all 11 teams in the 2018/19 championship will also be featured, as will the four city centre tracks in Hong Kong, Paris, Rome and Zurich.

Ben Padley, FE's marketing and brand director said: The expanded partnership and offering with EA and Real Racing 3 is another exciting opportunity for Formula E to bring fans inclusive racing content - putting the new-look Gen2 car in the hands of gamers for the first time.

"Fan participation is a key driver in everything that we do and our renewed partnership allows for the best discoverability and accessibility of the Formula E product."

Turn 10 Studios, the makers of the Xbox exclusive Forza Motorsport series, have been signed to help develop the eRace competition that has pitted the fastest gamers in the eVillage against FE drivers.

The race between the fans and drivers will be streamed live on the Real Racing 3 app, while 'incentivised' FE specific challenges will allow successful players the opportunity to participate in the E-Race.

Ahead of the title-deciding double-header between Jean-Eric Vergne and Sam Bird this weekend in New York, a global-time trial open will take place until July 21.

Using the newly-extended full Brooklyn circuit, gamers can compete for the fastest time and win a full-sized replica helmet signed by a selection of current FE drivers, with more details set to be unveiled throughout the weekend.

FireMonkeys Studio, a branch of EA, are the developers of Real Racing 3, and its general manager Luis Gigliotti said: "We've enjoyed working together [with FE] over the last three seasons and bringing so many firsts to the racing world.

"We're excited about the future and our relationship with Formula E as we continue to work together to bring the excitement of the sport and our game to millions of players around the world."
