Milestone has released a new MotoGP 20 video, highlighting the main features of its brand-new Managerial Career mode. The new career mode puts players into a pro riders’ boots, with an engaging and progressive gaming experience, both on and off the track.
Just like in the real MotoGP, simply being fast on the circuit is not enough. Players will need to make the best decisions to find a winning strategy to master the Championship.
Echoing real life, one of the key figures at the top of the team is the personal manager, whose work can truly make a difference, when it comes to sponsorship and contract opportunities. Players will need to evaluate all of the offers they receive, both from real-life teams and new teams created by the player, looking carefully at their engagement and expectations before taking a decision.
If players select a new team, they will be able to make their rider and bike stand out using different graphic editors to modify the helmet, racing number, lower-back patch, stickers and bike livery. The personal manager’s skills come into play when tasked to try and craft a stronger team, or negotiate a better salary, following the player’s indications.
When it comes to being fast on track, it is the players’ choice of technical staff that influences the performance of the bike. The most skilled technicians will be able to develop bikes better and faster, but of course they will be much more expensive than others.
How do you find the right balance between budget and performance? It’s up to players. On-track tests during the weekend will provide valuable data for development, but the synergy between the engineers will determine how much of this knowledge can be actually used to craft new parts. Each engineer will have different skills in different areas so teamwork will be key.
Taking part in the winter and mid-season tests enables players to develop their bike, choosing up to 3 different packs with various engines and frame combinations to find the perfect settings for the season. Once the season starts, players can also improve performances of different bike parts, earning and spending development points and allocating their R&D staff to reach the highest level. Aerodynamics, electronics, engine power and fuel consumption are just an example of the many technical parts that players can now manage to improve their bikes.
For the first time, Milestone also announces brand-new features that will support the game after launch, that will further expand contents of the Managerial Career gameplay; more details about the post launch features will be revealed soon, stay tuned!
MotoGP 20 will be released on April 23 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC/STEAM and Google Stadia. Nintendo Switch fans will have to wait until May 5.

MotoGP 20 was especially created for players who are not afraid of making decisions. This year, the Managerial Career is finally back with brand new features. Are you ready to experience the MotoGP championship all the way?
You can count on a complete team of professionals, such as your Personal Manager, the Chief Engineer and the Data Analyst. Their role will be essential to find engagements, collect your racing data and develop the bike. Wanna find out how useful they can be? Visit our dedicated news section.
If you want to be the fastest, you’ll need the best bike, that’s why MotoGP 20 allows you to develop and upgrade your bike in every single aspect. You’ll be able to adjust your bike in multiple ways: Aerodynamics, Electronics, Engine power and consumption, Chassis.
We’ve known for a long time that challenges don’t scare you. So we needed something really tough to test your skills, that’s why we introduced a more realistic braking management, Tire Wear and Fuel Consumption.
Our Graphic Editor is certainly one of the most acclaimed and appreciated features by all players. That’s why MotoGP 20 introduces new liveries in perfect MotoGP style, perfect to personalize the bike of your Custom Team. Use the Livery Editor to change the colors of the Fairing and of the rider’s suit.
We tasted the “Low Latency” and now we can no longer do without it. So we decided to continue to harness the power of the Dedicated Servers provided by Amazon Web Services, and to evolve our online game modes such as Public Match, Private Match and Race Director Mode, improving their quality even further.
We strongly believe in the potential of neural networks applied to the world of video games. The previous version of A.N.N.A. was smarter, faster and more efficient… and still it was not enough. So we decided to “go beyond”: MotoGP 20 will feature a Neural AI 2.0, even more efficient in terms of driving and, above all, capable of managing tire wear and fuel consumption. The new Neural AI will take the challenge to the next level, to challenge you beyond your limits.
Renewed Historical Mode
The history of the MotoGP is certainly made of epic moments, but it’s the challenge that turned the great champions of the past into legends. This year, we designed a game mode with different race challenges randomly generated: race and win to unlock new riders and new motorcycles. Be careful not to miss the rarest bikers, collect them all and test the new physics on the most powerful bikes in the history of the Top Class.
You will have all the drivers of all the classes of the Season 2020 and all the tracks, including the brand new Finnish circuit “Kymiring”.
