After listening to community feedback, Milestone went back to its drawing board and put a lot of effort into reworking its MXGP series. The result is MXGP Pro, a more advanced dirt, adrenaline and bike-filled racer, which is expected to be released sometime this summer.
MXGP Pro is a brand-new game, designed to satisfy even the most passionate fans who want to live the Motocross experience. Based on community feedback, the title has been revamped using a new method called the “mechanical approach.” Players will be able to customize nearly every aspect of their bike, based on real values and metrics.
The crucial knowledge gained from previous titles in the MXGP franchise has led to this new experience, which enhances racing by refining gameplay. This is what Pro is supposed to mean, a videogame with a new soul and it will feature:
A new Bike Set-Up system, which enables players to customize nearly every aspect of their bike, based on real values and metrics;
A unique physics approach, which grants the player limitless movements with a reworked system of grips, collisions, and in air behaviors;
Even more realistic rider movements, integrated with the bike and affected by the bike’s impact on different terrains.
For added realism, the developer signed an exclusive partnership with three knowledgeable fellows: Tim Gajser, Tony Cairoli, and Gautier Paulin. Their expertise has helped create what promises to be the series’ most realistic title yet.
“This year we have been able to completely redefine the physics and the entire gameplay experience of MXGP,” said Luca Simonotti, Lead Designer at Milestone. “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.”
MXGP Pro is racing towards a summer 2018 release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam.
