Formula E 2021 update, includes “Attack Zone” for rFactor 2

Ahead of the first broadcast event of the new Formula E Accelerate esports series, rFactor 2 has dropped a fairly major overhaul to the cars that will open up more strategic options to drivers in the series. The good news is, that you can do the same with this free update to the DLC.

However, the bad news is that it only works online because it’s currently incompatible with the current AI systems in place. So if you really want to try Attack Mode for yourself then you’re going to need to assemble a team of friends to make it happen.

The Attack Zone will also only work on the designated Formula E tracks and with the Formula E Gen2 car (which does make sense since it was introduced with Gen2 in real life).

To be honest, it’s not the most straightforward system unless you’re an avid Formula E fan. You’ll have to drive through an activation zone, and that will unlock more performance from your electric motor. There are some additional restrictions though depending upon the session, the lap you’re on and the circuit. Fortunately, the good people at Studio 397 have created a video that explains all the ins and outs, dos and don’ts in one simple to understand video:
