Stats and Power-Ups
Each Rig has 4 different stats: Top Speed, Acceleration, Manuverability and Endurance. Aside from the obvious Top Speed and Acceleration, Maneuverability means the speed at which the Rig will be able to perform feats such as barrel rolls ,sudden stops, flips and similar. Endurance means the amount of resistance a Rig will have to things like physically being pushed or pulled or influenced by similar factors.
Power-Ups are abilities all of the Rigs will have at disposal, but not freely. As you are racing, there will be holographic markers which can be triggered by flying through them. When u trigger a marker, you are presented with a choice, Utility or Attack. Picking one of these will give u a random ability from the branch.
So what happens if u don't like the ability you get ? Well you can "feed" it to an ultimate ability called a Rigout ability unique to the Rig you are using.
Main game progression will be marked with the players account level which caps at 30. As you race, you
get certain amount of experience points which help you level up your profile. Leveling up is crucial as it unlocks more customization and upgrades to the character, unlocks more races etc. At max level you unlock ranked play, which lets you race competitively for rank, rewards and prestige.
