Game: Ride 2

Platform: PC, PS4, XBox One

Publisher: Milestone S.r.l

Release Date: 07/10/2016

We managed to get a hands on with Ride 2 in our recent visit to Gamescom and decide to take a look at one of the new and exciting additions to the series: the Nurburgring Nordschleife.

We opt for the Aprilia RS 125 R, a 125cc bike with a not too thrilling 33 bhp so as you can imagine it takes some considerable time to complete a lap at the iconic Nordschleife.

The long lap gives us a decent look at how the game is shaping up, visually the game is coming along nicely with some impressive track side detail and draw distances. However we did notice texture pop in on the trees which is very hard to see in this off-screen video.

Every now and again we cycle through the different viewpoints and at one point we even take a quick look at the photo mode. One element that we couldn't help notice is just how clean the track surface looks, there appears to be a distinct lack of tyre marks, chalk markings and general signs of life so there's still one or two things that need ironing out before the game releases on October 7.

Check out the Nurburgring Nordscheife in action in our Gamescom hands on video below.
