Square Enix and Milestone announced that MotoGP 17 is now available. According to the press release, the 2017 edition of the official MotoGP video game brings you the adrenaline-fueled action of the MotoGP World Championship, including all the riders, teams and tracks of the 2017 championship season and the Red Bull Rookies Cup.
Players will also have access to over 70 legendary riders, while experiencing thrilling new online game modes like the Manager Career mode which allows you to live the double life of rider and team manager.
MotoGP17 is described as a real tribute, a gaming homage to the two-wheeled world of racing.
“Starting from the sound design where every sound is 100% real thanks to the live recording of dozens of motorbikes to the artificial intelligence and physics of MotoGP17 which have been further improved from the previous iterations of the series. Your opponents are more competitive, while overtakes and collisions are hyper-realistic and give players the most authentic gaming challenge. The highlight is the 60 frames per second frame rate, which will guarantee greater control of the motorbike and a more enjoyable and exciting gaming experience allowing you to drift and bank like a true champion!”
In MotoGP 17, players will now be able to engage in the Managerial Career mode, creating and running an entire MotoGP team. Starting with Moto3 and reaching up to the highest class, carefully selecting riders and staff, engineers and nutritionists, aiming for more competitive vehicles and increasing the teams’ performance to draw the sponsors attention.
MotoGP 17 is also playable both offline, with single races and time trials and of course the great official championship, and online, thanks to the co-op mode.
Apparently the game has been available on the PC since June 15th (despite the press release claiming that it is now available on our platform).
