animoca brands motogp

Animoca Brands and REVV Motorsport’s Play to Earn (P2E) title, MotoGP Ignition, reignited community enthusiasm by introducing new ways the Shard tokens (SHRD) can be integrated into the game as well as hinted at the completion of their upcoming game, MotoGP Ignition manager.

Integrating Shard (SHRD) to MotoGP Ignition

Recently, REVV Motorsport introduced Shard token (SHRD), an interoperable blockchain token that enhances players’ gameplay experience across such REVV Motorsport titles as Formula E: High Voltage, REVV Racing, and MotoGP Ignition

Shard tokens (SHRD) have been used to collect Hot Shot NFTs and other digital collectibles in MotoGP Ignition. In the latest announcement, MotoGP Ignition has introduced a new reward mechanism called the Shard (SHRD) Boost System

Powered by Shard tokens (SHRD), the new reward mechanism will allow for greater Shard (SHRD) yield by enabling players to leverage their NFT collections and maximize their rewards.

Here’s a breakdown of the new reward mechanism: 

  • Cards, or Hot Shots, will be associated with unique boost values determined by their rarity, with the most common having the lowest boost value and the rarest having the highest boost value.
  • Players can use their boost values to level up their Shard (SHRD) boost tiers, in turn increasing the potential Shard tokens (SHRD) and rewards they earn from events. 

MotoGP Ignition Manager: From Pole Position to Being Stuck in the Undercut

MotoGP Ignition Manager is MotoGP Ignition’s long-overdue, competitive, multiplayer management game where players will go head-to-head in races, directing their racers to do laps while managing diverse variables such as equipment, stamina, and more to take the lead. 

MotoGP Ignition Manager was pitched as the flagship game in MotoGP Ignition’s lineup, where players can put their Hot Shot NFT Collection and other collectibles to use. However, it’s important to note that the game has been in development for over two years since its initial pitch. 

After much anticipation, MotoGP Ignition’s developer team shared exciting development progress, hinting the game could launch an Open Beta in January next year. 

Here’s a synopsis of the development updates: 

  • MotoGP Ignition Manger is reaching the end of the prototyping stage. Developer teams are finalizing the economy system and tweaking some technical challenges. 
  • Motorland Aragon and Sachsenring circuits have been added to the engine. 

On the Flipside

  • While still under development, the sneak peeks of the manager game seem out of touch with the current standard of AAA games. Upon closer inspection, the texture and shaders aren’t as sharp, the lighting and reflection system still has to be implemented, and models in the game look a decade old.
