SBK Generations features real-time lightning, HDR, improved Emotion FX character animations

Black Bean Games and Milestone have today revealed some new details – and a trailer – about the core features of SBK GENERATIONS, their upcoming motorcycle racing title. SBK GENERATIONS is a huge experience set throughout four different seasons of the Superbike FIM World Championship, starting in 2009 and ending with this year’s 2012 season.
The official game of the Eni FIM Superbike World Championship is back on PlayStation 3, Xbox360 and PC, with the most complete motorcycling simulation ever created: the Past, Present and the Future all converge to create a challenge never before seen. All the iconic SBK Champions will be included: from the “King” Carl Fogarty, to the “Gentlemen” Troy Bayliss on his Ducati, the 2011 Champion Carlos Checa, and many more.
Fabio Paglianti, SBK GENERATIONS Game Director said:
“Live through the generations has been our mantra since we started development on SBK Generations. We knew this was going to be the last iteration of our SBK series, so we wanted to give our fans something really special: the chance to experience all the emotion of the SBK championships from recent years. All the players will be able to challenge legendary champions, such as the amazing riders shown in this trailer and all in the same race, something which has never happened in a real life SBK round!”
SBK GENERATIONS promises to deliver the best riders of all ages gathered through 4 seasons in the largest SBK game of all time. It will include 10 rosters, ranging from 2009 to 2012, featuring more than 220 riders, 141 teams and 60 bike models from 10 manufacturers that raced between 1999 and 2012.
SBK GENERATIONS also features advanced improvements on the in-house developed X Engine, which now features a greater visual impact, a revamped career mode, more realistic weather simulation, evolving track technology, real-time lightning, bloom, High Dynamic Range, improved Emotion FX character animations that look better than ever and the usual high quality of game handling and physics simulation.
All this amazing content, together with the well-known SBK game quality guaranteed by Milestone, is available for only £29.99 on consoles and £24.99 on Windows PC and will be distributed by PQube. As the only motorbike racing simulation to launch in the current season, SBK GENERATIONS is must-have title for all fans.
Developed by Milestone, a respected and established Italian software developer who specialise in racing games, and published worldwide by Black Bean Games, SBK GENERATIONS is scheduled for release in June 2012 for X360, PS3 and PC.
