MotoGP™15 – On Screen Catalunya, Motegi and Aragon
28th April 2015, Sydney – Milestone s.r.l., one of the world’s leading developers and publishers specialising in the racing genre, releases the second video for MotoGP™15, the third chapter in the series dedicated to one of the most adrenaline-fuelled championships in the world: MotoGP™. The video shows Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya – Catalunya –,Motul Grand Prix of Japan – Motegi and Gran Premio Movistar de Aragón – Aragón, with a revamped graphics that shows its best on the new console generation. The title will be available in June 2015 – on PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3, Xbox One, Windows PC, Xbox 360.
The Circuit de Catalunya opened on the doorstep of Barcelona in September 1991 and welcomed its first international event that same month, hosting the Spanish F1 Grand Prix. It went on to host the European Motorcycle Grand Prix and in 1995 became home to the Gran Premio de Catalunya. Considered to be one of the best designed circuits of the recent era, the Circuit de Catalunya won the much coveted IRTA ‘Best Grand Prix’ trophy for 2001 and has a general admission capacity of 104,000 spectators.
Located amongst the vast natural beauty of the northern Kanto district, the twin ring circuit at Motegi in Japan consists of a 1.5 mile oval and a 2.9 mile road course constructed to international standards. Built by Honda as the ultimate test facility in August 1997, the road circuit became home to MotoGP in 2000 whilst the oval is designed to introduce American motorsports culture to the country.
An ultra-modern facility, MotorLand Aragón had its roots firmly established thanks to a solid history of street racing in Alcañiz, which hosted events between 1963 and 2003.
With support from local institutions, renowned German architect Hermann Tilke was commissioned to design the facility. The circuit, which is 5.077 km long and has 17 turns, was roundly praised by riders after its first Grand Prix in 2010, and it was rewarded with the IRTA Best Grand Prix of the Year award, the first time a circuit had received the prize in its debut year.
Bike, rider, and team customisation. Enhanced career mode. New game mode. Legendary two-stroke bikes. The 2015 MotoGP™ Season. These are the ingredients that promise to revolutionise the game experience for all competitive motorcycling enthusiasts and MotoGP™ championship fans.
One of the standout features of this new chapter dedicated to the motorcycle world championship season – a defining characteristic of the 2015 edition of the official videogame of the MotoGP™ – is bike, rider, and team customisation, with more than 100 accessories available for purchase*. Bike: choose from more than 20 bike models across 3 classes, MotoGP™, Moto2™ and Moto3™, choose from 40 different liveries with official colour schemes, and consider offers from the main sponsors to accept their sponsorship during races. Rider: change the colour scheme of your leathers to match your bike, buy boots and gloves, choose your rider’s face and customise the helmet with the dedicated Helmet Editor. Motorhome: transform your game experience with 3 different motorhomes (Basic, Mid-Range and Top-Range), so your avatar can live in a manner befitting to their level of stardom.
The second highlight of the new title is the enhanced career mode, now fully integrated with the customisation features. Once you have created your rider (name, face and principal physical characteristics) you start out on the road to becoming world champion. You’ll start racing as a Wild Card and subsequently you’ll be able to negotiate your future career by choosing one of the official teams participating in the 2015 championship, or choosing sponsors to race with your own Private Team, taking to the track alongside the existing teams. Negotiations hinge on your performance during races, meaning your customisation options and resulting appearance are directly linked to your in-game objectives.
The third new component is the introduction of a new game-mode: Beat the Time. In this compelling new race players are assigned a specific bike on a specific circuit. Riders from the different classes featured in the game have set records on that circuit and on that bike. Your aim is to beat that record.
Other new features for MotoGP™15 include the introduction of the two-stroke bikes that made MotoGP™ history, all the teams, riders and bikes from the 2015 season, and Real Events from the 2014 season, for a complete experience that is unique in its genre.
MotoGP™15 is currently being developed at Milestone studios in Italy. It will be available in winter 2015 for PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3, Xbox One, Windows PC, Xbox 360.
