'rFactor 2' takes its partnership with Formula E to the next level

As of this very moment, all drivers, cars and teams involved in the current Formula E season are available to play in the sim racer "rFactor 2." The developer of the game made the announcement earlier this week on its website. This marks an expansion of a previous partnership rather than a brand new one, but it's an exciting development for fans of the game or the rising Formula E motorsport.

The game is also incorporating the updated power rules set by the Formula E organization for this season. Last but not least, Formula E will be using rFactor 2 to power its own "Accelerate eSports Series" as well as using 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 all around the world."

Pretty cool stuff, if you ask us. 

'Hot Wheels Unleashed' DC Super Heroes Racing Season starts right now

The new season includes six new hero-themed vehicles: The Flash, Supergirl, Aquaman, Cyborg, Nightwing and Shazam (aka the original Captain Marvel, if you're a purist). The season will include new customization items as well. It's going on right now and will continue until June 14. Check out the video below to learn more!
