Eden Games has over 13 million game boxes sold, 60 million app downloads worldwide, and long-term partnerships with more than 30 established brands in the automotive industry, including BMW, Bugatti, Porsche, Lotus, Pagani, etc. The company has gained its fair share of fame at Apple Inc.’s Peek Performance event following the latest expansion of its Gear.Club franchise.

Animoca Brands will leverage the expertise of Eden Games to enrich the REVV Motorsport ecosystem and add new blockchain-based racing games. The new games will provide additional utility to the NFT Race Passes and the other assets obtained by swapping assets from Animoca Brands’ F1® Delta Time, which ceased operations in March 2022.
“With its quarter of a century of expertise in building high-quality motorsport video games, Eden Games will enhance and accelerate the development of the REVV Motorsport ecosystem and add powerful value to the REVV community and the racing metaverse.”Yat Siu, Co-founder and Executive Chairman of Animoca Brands.
