The year of motorsport is coming to an end, which means the start of another one is coming.
The first taste of 2020 is here with the announcement that Milestone, the team behind the well-received MotoGP series, and Feld Entertainment Inc. will be dropping Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 3 in early 2020.
The new game will drop on 4 February 2020 on PS4, Xbox One, Windows PC/Steam, Google Stadia, and Nintendo Switch.
Price and any extra editions or early access is as yet unknown.
This game will feature the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross season with 100 riders from both 450SX and 250SX Classes, as well as 15 official stadiums and tracks.
For the first time in the series players will be able to choose between a sponsor team or an official Supercross team from the 2019 Championship.
You will finally have the chance to become a teammate of your favourite Supercross rider and compete with the field to dominate the Supercross world.
Players will have the opportunity to race in co-op mode with 3 other friends, choosing different game modes in the replica of the iconic Factory Supercross Practice Tracks in California.
This is a huge free roam area that consists of 9 amazing tracks where most teams test their bikes.
There will also be a brand new online experience, boosted with dedicated servers to create lag-free gameplay.
Race Director Mode will help create amazing online tournaments while Championship, Quick Race, or Elimination Mode offer a lot of choice for racers.
This is perhaps the most exciting feature. More than 53,000 tracks were created in the previous game, making this feature a must-return for the developers. The track editor bring new modules and stadium items to customise tracks in an entirely new and unique way.
Along with new items like finish gates and leader pillars players will now have a more realistic and immersive experience.
Rider and secondary character models have been completely re-made from scratch with photo scanning that now feature a new set of animations.
For the first time a Female Rider model with its own animations and physics is available in the game. Players can select a Female Custom Rider amongst different models to be the next Supercross Champion.
Tracks are more alive, thanks to revised particles of fireworks, flames, dry and wet ground that are more detailed and realistic. On the gameplay side, physics has been completely revised to be adapted to the new riders’ animations and a new in-air bike control system has been implemented to improve bike handling during jumps.
With control physics and realism impressing in MotoGP, fans can be confident that Milestone will deliver on the promises of a quality gameplay experience for Monster Energy Supercross 3.
