Players can choose from an extensive selection of both fantasy and official cars and drivers, including the 2023 ABB FIA Formula E World Champion, Jake Dennis, and his Andretti Porsche 99X Electric GEN3.
Formula E: High Voltage is part of the REVV Motorsport ecosystem, a suite of blockchain games that includes MotoGP™ Ignition, MotoGP™ Guru, REVV Racing, and Torque Drift 2.
