As if one motorbike racing game (RIDE) isn’t enough for milestone, they’ve only gone and announced MotoGP 15 for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC to release at some point in June. Along with an official announcement trailer, Milestone has also released a list of details regarding the new game’s features, the highlights of which can be found below.
“One of the standout features of this new chapter dedicated to the motorcycle world championship season – a defining characteristic of the 2015 edition of the official video game of the MotoGP™ – is bike, rider, and team customization, with more than 100 accessories available for purchase*.
The second highlight of the new title is the enhanced career mode, now fully integrated with the customization features. Once you have created your rider (name, face and principal physical characteristics) you start out on the road to becoming world champion. You’ll start racing as a Wild Card and subsequently you’ll be able to negotiate your future career by choosing one of the official teams participating in the 2015 championship, or choosing sponsors to race with your own Private Team, taking to the track alongside the existing teams. Negotiations hinge on your performance during races, meaning your customization options and resulting appearance are directly linked to your in-game objectives.
The third new component is the introduction of a new game-mode: Beat the Time. In this compelling new race players are assigned a specific bike on a specific circuit. Riders from the different classes featured in the game have set records on that circuit and on that bike. Your aim is to beat that record.
Other new features for MotoGP™15 include the introduction of the two-stroke bikes that made MotoGP™ history, all the teams, riders and bikes from the 2015 season, and Real Events from the 2014 season, for a complete experience that is unique in its genre.
Sounds pretty extensive to us, so what do you make of all this? Could the MotoGP series be set to become a commercial success?
