MixMob: Racer 1 Unveils Latest Alpha Release with Brand New Game Modes
Our team has been working relentlessly, you’ve been waiting patiently, and now it’s finally time to reveal the latest evolution of MixMob: Racer 1 with the launch of our Alpha V2! This iteration of the game comes packing major upgrades and new features, including multiplayer, a second track, new cards, and an innovative way for NFT holders to invite their friends to play — no Mask necessary.
Where the Closed Alpha version of Racer 1 was limited to PVE (Player vs. Environment), the current version of the build supports PVP (Player vs. Player) functionality; a major enhancement, and even more reason to invite your friends to play!
Benefits of playing the Alpha
- Be the first to play the game and be part of the building process by sharing your feedback.
- Refer friends and compete for prizes, like the ones below.
- Earn Leaderboard rewards, including a Nothing phone, merch, in-game currency with future game benefits, and whitelist spots for our upcoming NFT drop.
- Unlock unique roles in Discord for even bigger rewards when the full game is out.
Here are some of the features you have to look forward to in the latest version of the game:
One of the biggest advances of Alpha V2 is that players will be able to choose between single-player (competing against an AI) or multiplayer, competing against live opponents in real time. If multiplayer is selected, the player will be connected to an online server that will match-make active users with arenas!
As multiplayer is still in the testing stages, this function will be limited to the following weekly windows:
- Thursday from 9AM PT to 11AM PT
- Thursday from 4PM PT to 6PM PT
- Friday 9AM PT to 11AM PT
- Friday from 4PM PT to 6PM PT
Single-player will be open 24/7 throughout the duration of Alpha V2.
A New Greek-Themed Track
Champions are born at Neolympus! Our new track is a battleground for the greatest racers in the Subdomain, and the perfect metaphor for our fight against A-1. Flex your skills and speed against other Raiders in this remixed reality where crypto memes clash with classical themes, immersing racers in a colosseum-like world where things aren’t always what they seem.
New Card Deck
Our brand new “Styler” deck features 15 cards to rain down on your opponent, “remixing reality” with powerful effects. This deck comes complete with a series of new mechanics that make Racer 1 more competitive and exciting. Not only that, our original Alpha deck has been upgraded and optimized with major card enhancements, including 3D projectiles to emphasize attack cards, speed boosts, new UI improvements, revised rebalance of cards and Health system, as well as Pulse Pips.
Once a week, players can compete in tournaments and receive up to 75 SOL in rewards. Tournament winners will be announced two days after PVP arenas close and will be contacted via Discord.
Leaderboards & Prizes
Players can compete for glory and rewards by making our weekly Leaderboards. Every Monday, the top 25 players who won the most games that week will be featured on the PVP or PVE public Leaderboard. If two players win the same number of matches, the player who reached the most wins first will be featured first on the Leaderboard. Prizes will be awarded. More details coming soon.
Our UI improvements will prepare any player to challenge their opponent. Updates include refreshed Health and Shield meters, supporting card UI, and a highly-request mini-map to simplify gameplay. Through player testing, we were able to narrow down and implement the best Health, Shield, and mini-map options favored by the community.
Alpha V2 introduces a referral system where Gen0 Mask holders can invite others to join. Rewards will be given to those who bring in the most players.
These are just the major features you have to look forward to with Alpha V2! Stay tuned for Discord Quests, the discovery of a Secret Robotic interference, and new front-end art styles that match the MixMob Raiders — all coming soon!
How to participate
As of today, Mask holders can access Racer 1 at uprising.mixmob.io. Once you connect your wallet, you will be given a trackable link to share with your friends and community, increasing the player pool and escalating the competition.
If you don’t have a MixMob Mask, go to our website and request an exclusive invite, or buy a Mask in our marketplace.
Players will be able to access Racer 1 twenty-four hours a day for single-player mode. Multiplayer mode will be accessible during specific time-blocked windows weekly on Thursdays and Fridays from 9AM PT to 11AM PT and 4PM PT to 6PM PT.
