The game will launch both digitally and physically for $49.99. The game sports 18 historical tracks spanning the likes of nearly 20 years of motorsports, starting in 1996 and going all the way up to 2015.
Gamers will have more than just the standard professional sports bike at their disposal; the game will also feature rallycross racing, drift challenges, motorcross tracks, flat track racing and special RM1 challenges. Yes, you get to drift in rally cars in a Valentino Rossi game. That’s some serious cross-pollinating motorsports fever right there.
To give you an idea of what the game is like, Milestone released a new trailer for the game to tease some of the upcoming action. You can check it out below.
In addition to all of the standard game modes and race seasons, there’s also a special VR|46 Academy sub-section within the career mode, as players will work through and work up the ranks in various motorcross and motorsport disciplines. It kind of sounds like the infamous license training found in Grand Turismo games.
So far, Valentino Rossi: The Game doesn’t look half bad. It’s a competent looking racer with competent looking graphics and enough modes and tracks to likely keep most gamers entertained. I really like the fact that they have the rally modes in there and the flat tracks to give gamers something very different to experience. You can check out some additional screenshots below.
The physics aren’t perfect but they’re doable and it’s not like Milestone has enough competition to force them to upgrade anytime soon. But with the clarity of resolution and the solid geometry work, most people looking for something immersive enough might find it in Milestone’s upcoming title.
Once again, you can look for Valentino Rossi: The Game to go live on July 26th for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. For more info feel free to visit the official website.
