Digital gaming company Electronic Arts (EA) announced Tuesday a new partnership between Real Racing 3 mobile racing franchise, and the FIA Formula E Championship, the world’s first fully electric single-seater series, to bring the season-opening Hong Kong ePrix to life in the game.
With this new partnership, Real Racing 3 will be adding the Formula E street circuit in Hong Kong’s Central District as a new track in the game.
This is in addition to an in-game version of an official Formula E car, and exclusive behind-the-scenes videos from the real-world event, which took place this October 9, 2016.
Now players will be able to experience the Hong Kong central harbourfront circuit first-hand, as they get behind the wheels of an eco-friendly, high-powered electric vehicle that boasts a maximum speed of 140 mph (225 km/h).
Developed by Firemonkeys Studio, Real Racing 3’s new ‘Formula E’ update is now available as a free download on the App Store and Google Play.
