MotoGP™21 will be available on April 22 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PC, Steam, and Epic Games Store.
The new motorbike racing game will feature the official 2021 MotoGP season, including all riders, teams, and tracks of the official MotoGP roster. Furthermore, players will be able to relive the MotoGP history with more than 40 historic riders and their iconic bikes featured in the game.
As 2021 is the year of next-generation consoles, MotoGP 21 is ready to deliver some unmissable additions. Players who play the game on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will enjoy Dynamic Resolution up to 4K, along with 60 fps. The overall quality is significantly improved and the enhanced lighting creates a world that transmits all the sensation of a real race.
Loading times are faster and for those who can’t live without the thrill of competition, online races are now up to 22 riders. PlayStation owners will enjoy the amazing feature of the PS5 DualSense™ with its haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. The final piece is the next level of ANNA. Milestone’s revolutionary AI based on machine learning is back and better than ever, with additional improvements in order to race against faster, smarter, and more accurate opponents than before, making the offline experience equal to a real-life race.
With an all-new progressive and strategic Career Mode, smart and advanced Neural AI, and real-life gameplay improvements, MotoGP 21 provides that simulation vibe and feeling of immersion like never before. The new season of career mode allows players to delve deeply into the team management experience, making some new features available for both on and off-the-track decisions.
Building the best team possible and customizing the bike are keys to success. Being fast on the track is now all up to you. The Personal Manager leads the staff, helping riders to look for new, prestigious contracts from the best teams in the championship. At their side, the Chief Engineer is working for increasing Research Points, earned weekly or during Free Practice sessions.
Last but not least, the Data Analyst is in charge of finding the perfect balance for each development area to progress in order to make all the staff effective and dynamic. Those elements have been added aiming to create the deepest and most complete career experience ever.
And what about starting from the bottom with a Junior Team? The path will be difficult, but more personal. Hiring the right people is always fundamental for success, starting with the Team Manager, who will look for new sponsorship and riders, and all the way up to the Technical Director who manages the R&D department for junior bikes.
In MotoGP 21 also customization is moving another step closer to reality. Assign your staff members to any of the bike development branches and invest your R&D Points to improve Engine Power, Aerodynamics, Frame, and the most important Electronic features, such as Traction Control, Brake, Anti Wheelie, and Power Mapping.
Even the look of the bike is important, that’s why MotoGP™21 once again features an editor divided into five main categories: Helmet, Livery, Suit, Stickers, and Racing Number.
- Bike Retrieval Sequence – Once you fall, you’ll no longer automatically respawn on track. You’ll have to get up and get back on your bike, as fast as you can. Pay attention to how you take corners.
- Brake Temperature – Riding is not only a matter of speed but also of strategy. Monitoring the temperature of your brakes is the key to always having the situation under control. If they are too hot or too cold they risk losing their effectiveness.
- Long Lap Penalty – Finally, the feature is coming to the MotoGP video game franchise, meaning that penalties can now be more specific.
- Bike Suspension System Revised – The level of realism is increasing again. This feature is dedicated to all bike simulation fans.
