MELBOURNE, Australia, AAA game development studio GOATi Entertainment is giving car manufacturers an enticing reason to step into the Metaverse by bringing their concept vehicles to life as NFTs. Limited-edition vehicle NFTs developed by GOATi Entertainment will be auctioned off to the public on their proprietary built blockchain gaming platform, Pavillion Hub, unlocking a new stream of revenue for car manufacturers and enabling the first true cross-game racing multiverse experience in gaming history.
Leading the line-up is DS Automobiles, which has partnered with GOATi Entertainment for the reveal of their E-TENSE PERFORMANCE prototype. Running over 258 days as part of its official brand activation commencing on 7 Feb. and ending with the final showcase at the Paris Motor Show from 17 to 23 Oct., DS Automobiles will be releasing a total of 145 limited-edition E-TENSE PERFORMANCE NFTs in a series of themed sales.
Launching with the ‘100 Series’ vehicle auctions in tribute to E-TENSE’s ‘100% Electric’ and ‘0-100km/h in 2 seconds’ achievements, the public will have 24 hours over 100 consecutive days to purchase 100 special-edition ‘100% Electric’ E-TENSE PERFORMANCE NFTs until 18 May @2pm CET, when the first in-game access of the vehicles will take place on Pavillion’s dedicated racing central ‘Race Hub’. Two additional ‘0-100km/h in 2 seconds’ edition vehicles will be auctioned off over the same period, running for 50 days each.
“As the first company ever to deliver racing utility for NFT vehicles, all auctioned vehicles will offer utility (as well as collectability) and will be accessible in-game in a real-time physics-simulated racing environment,” comments Garth Midgley, Managing Director or GOATi Entertainment. “Vehicles will be able to be used in a decentralised way in more than one game on Pavillion, on a number of different tracks and in different events, including prized tournaments. With game-play elements such as track design, race modes and event rules open to community modders, brands like DS Automobiles can achieve maximum engagement with their audience.”
The ‘100 Series’ auctions will be immediately followed by a three-part themed series of special-edition NFTs celebrating the outstanding performance of DS Techeetah and its drivers in Formula E running from the 18 of May until the close of the Paris Motor Show on the 23 of Oct., with an additional 43 E-TENSE PERFORMANCE NFTs up for grabs.
