'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.
