Milestone and Dorna Sports S.L. are proud to announce the next chapter of the amazing two-wheeled racing simulation game that continues the franchise’s great history. MotoGP 21 is set to launch on April 22, 2021. Featuring the 2021 official season and enriched by the power of next generation technology, MotoGP 21 is ready to change gear and race at speed, delivering an experience without precedent. A brand-new progressive and strategic managerial career mode, the smartest and advanced neural AI and real-life game play improvements will enhance simulation vibes and the players’ feeling of immersion in the game. This year, MotoGP feels more real than ever!
A true MotoGP experience!
The addition of a managerial career allows players to delve deeply into the managing experience, making some new features available both on and off the track. Building the best team possible and customizing the bike are keys to success. Being fast on the track is now up to you!
The personnel manager leads the staff and helps riders look for new prestigious contracts from the best teams in the championship. At their side the chief engineer works to increase research points which are 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 the staff effective and dynamic. Those elements have been added in an attempt to create the deepest and most complete career experience ever.
The path will be more difficult but at the same time more personel. Hiring the right people is always fundamental for success, starting from the team manager, who will look for new sponsorships and riders, while the Technical Director manages the R&D department. Of course, don’t forget to hire a rider which can turn in to a talented young star to lead the team to the top of the ladder.
The bike is an important element in MotoGP 21 when moving another step closer to reality. Assign your staff members to any of the bike development branches and invest R&D points to improve engine power, aerodynamics, frame and the most important electronic features of traction control, brake, anti wheelie and power mapping. Of course, the look of the bike is important and that’s why MotoGP, once again features an editor which is divided into five main categories: helmet, livery, suit, stickers and racing numbers.
The future of the two-wheeled gaming experience is here.
We promised a more realistic experience than ever, and the managerial career is only one of the improvements this year. Game play also has some iconic new features to present with the goal being to create an electrifying, strategic and adrenaline-fueled racing simulation that players have ever played.
As 2021 is the year of next generation platforms, MotoGP 21 is also ready to deliver some unforgettable additions. The overall quality is significantly improved and enhanced lighting creates a world that transmits all of the sensations of real racing. Loading times are faster and and online races now include up to 22 riders.
The final piece is the next level of ANNA, our revolutionary AI which is based on machine learning that allows for races against faster, smarter and more accurate opponents. This should make the offline experience equal to a real race. However, this is just the beginning as MotoGP 21 will only get bigger and better over the months thanks to some new content that will be introduced through patches. Day one is only the beginning of the race!
The MotoGP franchise of motorcycle racing games has a storied history of portraying the sport in as realistic fashion as possible and this edition will be sure to please. MotoGP 21 will be released on April 22, 2021.
