The wait is over, the new incarnation of the MotoGP video game is here, entirely overhauled and more realistic than ever before, available for all gaming platforms.
Gaming and motorcycling enthusiasts can rejoice today as the new MotoGP video game is now available. MotoGP 18 takes gaming a step forward, its creators say, as it received a thorough overhaul and is now more realistic than ever. The game is now using the Unreal Engine platform and reduces the gap between fiction and reality, however remaining accessible to casual gamers, as well.
On the graphics side, the Unreal Engine 4 platform offers solid upgrades in visual quality, backed by realistic lighting effects and completely reworked physics to mimic the distinctive behavior of the actual MotoGP bikes. The riders’ faces were 3D scanned to offer a very detailed reproduction in the game, while 1:1 drone scanning ensures an unprecedented realism of the MotoGP circuits.
Opponents are now smarter and they will not hesitate to exploit a player’s weaknesses. At the same time, the bike’s performance will decrease gradually with each collision. Just like in the real world, tire management and tire choices will affect the bike’s rideability, while collectable performance packages will let gamers develop their engine, suspensions, brakes, chassis and even aerodynamics.
MotoGP 18 comes with multiple Single Player modes, such as Career, Single Race, Championship, Time Attack and Tutorial, whereas the Multiplayer offers Championship and Single Race options. A new MotoGP eSport Championship will soon be added, Milestone says. Players can start from the Red Bull Rookie Cup and pass through Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP classes as they evolve.
The game can already be downloaded for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Steam, with a Nintendo Switch version to follow soon. We spotted the PC version for €47, and the PS4 with a €70 price tag.
