Promoted: Daniel Abt and Hyperdrome - racing game of the future
Nov 10, 2018, 2:00 PM

The latest hit game for smartphones is now available and promises aspiring drivers fast and action-packed races.

Teleports, combat missiles, and flamethrowers – if it were up to the Hyperdrome team, the future of racing would look very different to today. And they've already convinced one man, who to some degree represents the future of racing himself: up-and-coming Formula E driver Daniel Abt.

Abt is collaborating with Travian Games for the development of Hyperdrome and he doesn't just love playing the game – he's actually in it! From full-body scans for his character in the game, to battling fans at Gamescom, and even racing with the CEO of Travian Games both on the real and digital race track – Abt is fully involved. And judging by the photos, he seems to be having a great time.

See you on the track!

Hyperdrome is the latest mobile release by Travian Games on iOS and Android. The game puts every player in the shoes of a future race driver, all the while reinventing what racing really means. The project's game designer Sud Abbas, a fan of racing himself, recalls high ambitions: "When we started developing Hyperdrome, we really looked under the hood of racing sport and scrutinized every piece of it. What we wanted to achieve was to provide our players with the simple, quick fun of mobile games, while still capturing the excitement and thrilling split-second decisions that make racing so special."

The outcome is Hyperdrome, a free mobile game where two racers battle head to head on one of several outlandish race tracks. The twist: steering controls have made way for futuristic tactical abilities, called power-ups. Rather than just recycling old conventions, the team at Travian Games has been exploring innovative abilities that are perfectly tailored to the racing world of the future. As a result, race drivers deploy strip mines, bunny-hop over missiles and attach grappling hooks to the opponent's car.

This is where tactics come in. Players bring their eight favorite power-ups from a selection of over 30 unique abilities to each race. This leads to a wide variety of strategies, with hyper-aggressive playstyles, speed junkies, and rolling bulwarks all covered. Top racers will consider the current meta game and adjust their loadout accordingly. Then it's off to the race. And once you're on the track, it's just like it is now. Fast reactions and rapid thinking will decide who ends up first across the finish line. A race lasts only a few minutes, which means you can get your dose of adrenaline whenever you want, wherever you want.

Hyperdrome is out now in all mobile stores and can be played for free. Buckle up and duel players from around the world. You might even go up against Daniel Abt himself. But be warned: he's just as ambitious in Hyperdrome as he is in his Audi e-tron FE05.
