Battle Racers had quite a busy July. With the presale ending on June 20, the team focused most of their energy on preparing the game for the launch on Decentraland. They've also been working hard on the long-awaited "Parts-trading" feature! When will they release it? Read below!
Launching on Decentraland
Those who follow the DGaming news know that Decentraland recently unveiled its World Explorer, Avatars, and a new version of SDK. While this is great news for Decentraland, it's also great news for all those games that will run on Decentraland, which includes Battle Racers.
Effectively, Battle Racers will leverage everything that Decentraland offers and ensure that the game is smooth, functional, and well designed. The Battle Racers team already held two closed betas, through which they gathered valuable feedback from the community.
The good news is that the team will convert one of its tracks into a testing track, where the players will be able to test drive their vehicles without entry fees or post-race rewards. Even better is the fact that you'll be able to do so even if you don't own a car, which means that you'll be able to test the game for free.
Announcing The Parts Trading
During the presale, Battle Racers sold items in crates. Depending on the crate rarity, you'd receive random car parts with specific rarity status. So, while you're able to purchase crates with high rarity values, the parts would always be random.
To enable the players to trade, buy and sell individual parts, the team is developing Parts Trading. According to them, the feature should be out on August 20 and will occur on the OpenSea marketplace and be fueled by the Loom technology.
How Will This Work?
Many gaming companies go to Loom when they want to solve transaction problems. In this case, Battle Racers will enable you to transfer your car parts from the Loom sidechain to the Ethereum mainnet. And when you're assets are on the mainnet, you'll be able to sell them on the OpenSea marketplace.
It's important to know that this will be the first time that Loom is using this specific gateway. And that's exactly one of the reasons why the Battle Racers team has been waiting so long to release the Parts Trading feature. And when they do implement this feature, they'll seek to deploy the one that will enable the players to trade parts back from the Ethereum mainnet to the Loom sidechain.
