We’re excited to work with Colten and the team and are expecting an absolutely fantastic weekend.”
Using four immersive live racing simulators, individuals race against friends and other racers on Millennial’s proprietary racing game title, Gear.Club. The unique never-before-seen competitive experience, played on Gear.Club Unlimited for Nintendo Switch, provides gamers with a heart pounding thrill ride and the thrill of beating their competitors. Available throughout the weekend at LVL UP EXPO, it is an exciting opportunity for both long-time and new fans of Gear.Club to take their passion for racing to the next level in real competition.
