Guest starring in the 4th development diary is Vanni Oddera, Motocross freestyle champion who has collaborated with the Milestone team to help bring to life The Monster Energy Trick Battle Mode. Thanks to his expertise, which has been gained on some of the world’s most famous freestyle arenas, Vanni Oddera was able to offer lots of advice and input into the development of the game in order to make a more realistic in-game freestyle experience.
Vanni Oddera said:
”It was very exciting to work with the guys at Milestone. It’s been a blast to share my knowledge with them to help create MUD’s Monster Energy Trick Battle Mode, which I think is an amazing virtual experience. In the video diary, everyone can learn the techniques needed in order to be able to perform amazing tricks. I hope everyone will enjoy playing MUD just as much as I enjoyed helping to create the trick battle mode. MUD is a real adrenaline blast and definitely captures the excitement of motocross!”
Set across six sensational arenas, in locales ranging from the Czech Republic to Spain and the USA, the Monster Energy-branded mode allows players to perform the most famous tricks from the motocross freestyle scene, from basics such as the Can Can or the Nac Nac, to more advanced and fearless manoeuvres such as the Kiss of Death or Backflip.
