‘rFactor 2’ takes collaboration with Formula E to the next level

From this moment on, all drivers, cars and teams involved in the current Formula E season will be available to play in the “rFactor 2” sim racer. The developer of the game announced this on its website earlier this week. This marks an extension of a previous partnership rather than a brand new one, but is an exciting development for fans of the game or the emerging Formula E motorsport.

The game also includes the updated power rules established by the Formula E organization for this season. Last but not least, Formula E will use rFactor 2 to power its own “Accelerate eSports Series,” as well as use the game to power the “Formula E Gaming Arena” at future real-life races and events,” allowing players to experience the thrill of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship in venues around the world.”

Pretty cool stuff, if you ask us.
