Game: Ride

Platform: PC, PS4, XBox One

Publisher: Milestone S.r.l

Release Date: 27/03/2015

Following last week's debut trailer, Ride's promotional campaign has finally shifted up a gear with the release of the first official gameplay video taking us on a tour of the Sierra Nevada course, a winding route with a variety of fast stretches, steep gradients and tight corners overlooked by some serene mountainous scenery.

Starring in the video is the Aprilia RSV4 R ABS, the street version of the bike that dominated the 2014 WSBK season, winning both the Riders' World Championship and the Manufacturers' World Championship.

I also still can't help but fear that releasing Ride the very same day as Project CARS could be hugely detrimental. At this rate, it seems holding it back a couple of months to polish it up and avoid colliding head-on into Project CARS would be wise. If not, Ride could be in for a big fall on release. 

And that would be a shame, because Ride's huge roster of licensed bikes alone gives it the potential to be a pivotal game for bike enthusiasts if the physics live up – with some more polish, this could be the spiritual successor to Tourist Trophy we've long been pining for.
