After an early release in Europe in June, North America finally receives MotoGP 17 finally hits the shelves today and you have a chance to win a free digital copy in our MotoGP 17 Giveaway. Courtesy of Square Enix and Milestone s.r.l., this marks what appears to be one of the most in-depth and comprehensive motorbike Grand Prix racing game to date based on the premiere motorcycle road racing sport that’s been held since the late 1940s. MotoGP 17 actually marks the last time Milestone will develop a game based on the MotoGP franchise. Speaking on the game in an official press release last April, Lead Designer Matteo Pezzotti, of Milestone, stated the following: “We are working really hard to make MotoGP 17 not just a seasonal update, but an enjoyable game which is full of all the innovations which the fans of the series have asked for over the years. We will have a new competitive and thrilling online mode, a completely revolutionized career mode and much more. I don’t want to reveal too much, but I can assure you that you will see great things in the next few months. In the meantime, sit back and watch the beginning of the new season with us.” For MotoGP 2017, players will have access to all the 2017 riders, teams and tracks. The game will feature the new rules for MotoGP along with new features, such as the Red Bull Rookies Cup Championship. MotoGP 17 on the consoles will feature some top-grade visuals. For gamers who are very particular about their graphics and framerate, the console version of the game will run at 60 frames per second; which is a first for the series in terms of its visual framerate. Besides all the new updated riders, bikes and tracks from the current season of the official MotoGP, players will also be able to select 70 legendary riders from various classes, including 4 Stroke, 2 Stroke 500cc, 2 Stroke 250cc, 2 Stroke 125cc, and more. Among the new enhanced features of the game, MotoGP 17 will also have an enhanced physics system, all-new sound design, an overhauled leaning system for controls, better tire grip, some new online game mosts, and for people who want to customize their own characters and bikes, the game will have an incredibly robust character and bike customization system. Speaking to Wccftech in a May interview, Lead Programmer Michele Caletti also revealed the game will have a more aggressive computer artificial intelligence system. He stated, “We’ve added a lot more, making the AI more aggressive and further improving physics and collision system. The 60FPS support for PS4, PS4 Pro and Xbox One now brings to console players what PC ones have been enjoying – smooth, and more detailed physics, fast reactions and an increased feeling of being there. The audio is also a notable improvement – we’ve been able to re-record all the real bikes and to reproduce their sound in the game with a new third-party system that allows some incredibly realistic results.” So basically, this will be one of the smoothest, most detailed and realistic versions of MotoGP in gaming ever. Even the producers recorded the actual sounds of real motorcycles to incorporate that into the game’s overall sound design. Another exciting new feature for MotoGP 17 is the Managerial Career mode, which is dedicated to the 2017 World Championship. For Managerial Career mode, players take the role of a Team Manager and make decisions to lead their own team to the world title. Team Managers will have to manage team resources in order to put together the best championship team possible. Players will have to increase their reputation based on their wins at race weekends, which will also net them new credits, which will then enhance the overall performance of their riders. For the Team Manager mode, players will be focusing on every aspect of managing their team. This includes increasing team visibility with Sponsors, investing in the best performance motorcycle models, choosing the best pro Riders for the Team, and also overseeing various Team Departments. The game will have more than 10 departments to manage, such as Nutritionists, Athletic Preparation, Sports Management, the Research Department, and more. The Team Manager also gets to invest in R&D to get the best bikes, parts and components for the team. For players on the PlayStation 4, they will have access to the exclusive MotoGP eSport Championship. What this means is that any player who buys a copy of the game on PlayStation 4 is invited to compete in the eSports Championship for MotoGP 17, and gamers can compete against professional players.
