A handful of core gameplay improvements are now live on Zed Run's digital horse racing platform, according to an announcement from the platform

As part of the improvements, all racehorses have been officially migrated to a new racing system, which utilizes XP, Evo, levels, and a new class system. 

Now when entering free or paid races, each Zed Run horse will earn an allotment of experience points (XP), based on class, finishing position, and entry fee. After accumulating XP, horses can "level up" to the next class, improving the average speed of the horse and thusly making it more competitive. 

A horse's maximum class and level are ultimately dependent on the horse's Evo, or evolution, a rating that is based on the breed type of the horse. This rating provides the horse owner with an understanding of the maximum potential of a racehorse on Zed Run. For example, a Genesis racehorse is Evo 6, the highest Evo available. With this Evo, a horse may reach a level of 700, whereas a horse with an Evo of 5 may only reach a 500 level. 

Because of the significance of the changes to the racing platform, Zed Run will be monitoring gameplay and rebalancing over the course of the next few months. The platform has started slowly rolling out races at this time, though the process will unfold in a controlled manner.

Zed Run provided a breeding update on Monday via Discord, ahead of the core gameplay improvements set to launch in the coming weeks. 

The changes detailed: 

  • Breeding will now be linked to the Level of the racehorse, with breed type and internal attributes now factored into the Level calculation and max levels

  • Bred horses' starting level will now be determined by the starting level of the parents and their breed type
  • A new feature is being worked on to 'deal with outlying breeding results in an organic fashion that better fits the new system's paradigm'. 

The updates intend to align racehorses with the new class system coming with the release of core gameplay improvements.

Zed Run, the leading digital horse racing platform, eclipsed more than 3 million races according to a tweet from the platform on Sunday. 

More than $45 million has been paid out over the course of those races, which are available to enter in both paid and free capacities depending on the horse's eligibility. 

The milestone achievement comes just a few days after the project minted out its Metaverse Cup skins, which will reveal at an undetermined time on Wednesday, Nov. 16. 

The Metaverse Cup will feature 32 different horse skins, celebrating the upcoming World Cup event. Users who purchase a skin will be able to participate in a variety of competitions with more than $25,000 in prizes.

Zed Run announced that its formerly named "World Cup" is now the Metaverse Cup, in a tweet and email to users this morning. 

The tournament will maintain all the same skins and prizes, but will simply operate under a different name.

"FIFA reached out with concerns that there may be some confusion with the real-world World Cup and our Metaverse event," reads the Zed Run email. 

The announcement also indicates that the presale and public sale dates will be announced on Monday, Nov. 7. 

Minters will unlock exclusive skins for their Zed Run horses, enabling them to participate in exclusive Metaverse Cup races with prizes totaling more than $37,000.

Zed Run announced new core gameplay improvements to its XP, evo, level, class, and breeding systems, according to a recent blog post annoucnement.

Each racehorse can now earn XP for every race it participates in. The XP bar will show players how their racehorses are improving and when racehorses are expected to move to the next class.

A new Evo system based on racehorses' breed type will determine the maximum level a horse can reach. All Genesis horses can reach a max level of 700, or Evo 6.

Levels are now a calculation of racehorses' unique statistics. To level up, race in more races and earn XP. Bloodlines will also impact the leveling system.

The new class system is based on statistics, XP, and levels. This is intended to provide more transparency around competition.

Finally, newly bred racehorses will have starting and maximum levels based on their parents' statistics. Breeding will now be more transparent, and evo, class, and levels can be figured out after only one Griffin race.

More information is expected soon. Read more about Zed Run's newest announcement here.

Zed Run officially postponed its World Cup skin mint, according to a recent tweet from the team. Updates are expected soon.

"Unfortunately due to issues with the skins, the mint pre-sale and public sale will not be going ahead 00:00 a.m. Nov. 2 UTC," the tweet reads. "To everyone who has registered on the allowlist, stay tuned for updates."

The Zed Run World Cup skin is an access pass to the Zed Run World Cup, a month-long event on the platform with various challenges for racers to complete.

"The Zed Run World Cup is a fully interactive event, meaning the outcomes of the real World Cup in Qatar will have impacts on this event," the team said. "The further the country represented by your World Cup skin gets in the real life tournament, the more challenges you’ll be eligible for in Zed Run."

For more information on the World Cup skins, see Zed Run's blog post here.
