Italian game developer Milestone Ltd., announced that they have yet another new racing game in the works, prepping to release later this year themed around a realistic motorcross racing experience. It’s called MXGP Pro and it’s due out for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
The game will arrive this summer on June 29th, 2018 for $39.99.
The game’s announcement was accompanied by a number of screenshots and an announcement trailer, showcasing what sort of graphics will be featured in the off-road racing title.
It doesn’t look bad, but it also doesn’t seem to hold a candle to the visuals present in Monster Energy Supercross, which was also designed by Milestone. It’s a little odd because when you look at the graphics for both games, Milestone really knocked it out of the park with Monster Energy Supercross, but MXGP Pro seems to be a step behind.
I mean, check out this shot below of Monster Energy Supercross in comparison to MXGP Pro above.
As mentioned in the press release, Milestone has been working with Tim Gahser, Tony Cairoli, and Gautier Paulin to help with the precision handling and physics within MXGP Pro.
Luca Simonotti, the lead designer at Milestone, explained how they overhauled the physics in the game to reach a far more realistic depiction of the handling for the motorcross bikes, saying…
“This year we have been able to completely redefine the physics and the entire gameplay experience of MXGP. We started from the analysis of suspension, we compared the pressure with fork extensions as well as single shock-absorbers using the same values of official MXGP athletes’ bikes; the same process has been done with the ECU mapping. Moreover, thanks to the exclusive partnership with official MXGP riders Tim Gajser, Tony Cairoli, and Gautier Paulin we have been able to receive qualitative feedbacks on areas of improvements towards the whole development process. It has been a unique experience for us to be on track with them and we are proud of the results achieved.”
Well all that talk doesn’t mean much until you actually see it in action. You can check out the announcement trailer below to see how well the bikes handle.
There’s an all new bike customization and setup system implemented, along with the aforementioned realistic rider movements to match the overhauled bike physics for the grip, collision and air behavioral systems for the bike aerodynamics.
