The latest MXGP 2020 patch is available today adding Race Director mode. The mode allows players to create online tournaments, decide starting positions, assigning penalties and choose the cameras to focus on.
While the team has delivered quite a few patches since its December release, working remotely has slowed down some of their promised features. The team mentioned today, they won’t release the co-op in the playground and the synchronous multiplayer waypoint race as originally planned.
The new patch is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Steam.

So, the adaptive triggers are a huge plus in my book, but the haptic feedback that is felt through the controller is equally as impressive. I talk often about developers finding ways to bring the user into the world they have created, and the haptic feedback and adaptive controllers do just that. You can feel the engine vibration of the bike in the controllers as well as the terrain under the bike.
Not only did I feel the vibration of the world around me, but there were also nuances to each effect that made them feel individualistic. On the track, I could also feel my opponents grinding up against me on turns or when racing down a straightaway, and track surfaces are brought to life with the usage of controller haptics. It’s hard to describe the differences between this gen’s version versus last gen’s effort without having the actual controller in your hand, but the PS5 controller haptics and triggers draw you further into the game than ever before.
