All of them had the opportunity of discovering their own virtual avatars through a one2one meeting with the MXGP – The official Motocross Videogame’s Development Team.
"The main aim of MXGP is the loyalty to the Championship and for this reason we’ve invited some riders to help us into the development of the game such as: physics, tracks and audio. The riders had the chance to try an early version of the game and to share their own feedback. It has been very interesting seeing them in action: only who actually rides onto the real tracks can test deeply the game’s loyalty", affirms Alessandro Castrucci, Milestone’s Game Director. "Thanks to these preliminary tests the riders have revised the tracks with the artists and the physics with the programmers giving interesting points that are now part of the game. Every single rider had the chance to try for several hours the game and answer to our questions such as the riding’s feeling and the real Motocross Bike’s behavior. What did they love the most? For sure the career mode that for the first time has been included into an official Motocross Videogame", concludes Castrucci.
This exclusive partnership between MXGP’s Official Riders and Milestone is a clear proof of the attention to details and Gamers’ Experience that Development Team has included into the game.
MXGP features all the riders, teams, bikes and rules from the official MXGP 2013 calendar including a redesigned career mode for living the feelings of Motocross.
Developed by Milestone Studio, MXGP, The Official Motocross Videogame will be available in spring 2014 for PlayStation®3, PlayStation®Vita, Xbox 360® and Windows PC®.
