Today, Milestone has announced the next RIDE game with RIDE 4. It will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 8. The RIDE franchise launched five years ago and it quickly became a reference point for gamers all over the world looking for a realistic and authentic bike simulation. For RIDE 4, all bike models have been created from the ground up using the most advanced technologies. The original CAD and 3D Models have been scanned for each bike to help bring authentic and realistic replicas to the game. Even the cockpit is a perfect reproduction of the real thing, both in terms of design and dynamic elements. The data on the dashboard changes in real-time, speed, temperature, traction control…even the oil bottle vibrates according to the movements of the bike! RIDE 4 is an act of love made by bike enthusiasts for bike enthusiasts.
RIDE 4 also introduces a new Career Mode that lets players determine what league they are aiming for. Every decision will affect the career path as players gain access to special events and challenges. Players can also access several tools to create their distinctive bike and riding apparel and to customize many mechanical parts of their bike. A.N.N.A, the advanced neural network artificial intelligence used in the MotoGP series, will be present in RIDE 4, as well. You can watch the announcement trailer below.
Milestone partnered with two of the most iconic brands of the two-wheel world, Yamaha Motor and Bridgestone. “When we launched the RIDE franchise our main goal was to create a unique IP for all two-wheel lovers; today – five years later – the astonishing realism of its visuals, the depth of its gameplay and the great partners we’re working with, confirm we’ve worked in the right direction to create the ultimate two-wheel racing experience”, said Luisa Bixio, CEO of Milestone.
“As a global mobility leader with a large portfolio of premium products and solutions including premium motorcycle tyres, we saw fit to make our debut in the virtual world by partnering with Milestone, a proven leader in two wheel simulation games” – commented Nico Thuy, Head of Motorcycle Business at Bridgestone EMIA. “We are always looking for fresh ways to engage our customers and interact with the riding community, while also showcasing the quality of our products. Being present in RIDE 4 represents a one of a kind opportunity to do just that”.
