Derby Stars is Launching in Alpha: Get Ready to Raise, Race, and Glory
The digital horse racing title aims to set itself apart by combining the excitement of horse racing and land play with a twist of strategy.
What to expect from Derby Stars
Blockbuster horse racing game Derby Stars is launching in Alpha on August 7th, with new and exciting features awaiting gamers.
While most horse racing titles have dull, monotonous gameplay, Derby Stars aims to stand out by merging horse racing and land play with a twist of strategy. The Alpha includes a new Core system integrated with a revamped Training mechanic, a horse rental system, seasonal PvP tournaments, and a newly designed racecourse.
To make Training sessions more rewarding, the team has introduced a new system that allows users to generate a special core every 15 minutes of virtual training. Each core can be equipped for different purposes. For instance, a horse fitted with a high Stamina core would gain the upper hand in long-distance events. With that, players can choose specific goals for their Cores based on their preferences. For instance, a Training Goal could be "Win the G1 race more than X times," and upon completion, the Cores will be created with a new Power stat.
Derby Stars will also launch an innovative rental system where players can rent NFT horses for free. Horses from current holders will be prioritized for rental. If the demand from new or existing users exceeds the supply in the market, the system will create and reserve a set amount of "non-tradable horses" that can be rented out. This allows anyone to play the game with little to no investment.
Seasonal PvP races will also be included, with players earning $RUN based on the number of points their horse has accumulated. Each season has its own characteristics, such as certain stats being more advantageous or the potential to earn more points on specific tracks. New tracks with differing lengths of straight tracks and curves will appear, necessitating different strategies compared to the current tracks.
On top of that, the mobile version of Derby Stars is set for release in Q4 2023. An APK will be released initially before the game launches on Google Play or the Apple App Store. To learn more, check out the official post.
