NACON and RaceWard Studio have released their first gameplay trailer and screenshots for RiMS Racing. The motorcycle racer is scheduled to release on August 19 for Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC and Nintendo Switch.
The game promises an unparalleled experience, blending driving and mechanics, pushing the limits of realism and customization.
Racing conditions, riding style and mechanical status of the components have a direct impact on the motorbike’s behavior. By taking the customization to its most extreme level and thanks to a physics system offering unmatched precision, RiMS Racing highlights the connection between each part and puts mechanics at the very core of the gameplay.
To ensure victory, players are able to fully disassemble their motorbike and replace every element to achieve the best possible setup by choosing over 500 official components: tires, discs, calipers, pads, suspension, springs, air filters, exhausts, brake and clutch master cylinders, brake fluids, engine oils, ECUs, fairings and much more.
The player uses different tools to identify the mechanical components that can be upgraded, such as the Motorbike Status Check (MSC), which provides a real-time analysis of the motorbike’s status and performance. Players are at the controls and select, handle and integrate each required component in the driver’s HQ, in a brand-new gameplay feature.
