Game: MotoGP 19

Platform: PC, PS4, Switch, XBox One

Publisher:

Release Date: 06/06/2019 (Switch later)

The very latest title in the long-running MotoGP series has been announced today. MotoGP 19 will release on June 6 across the PlayStation 4, Xbox  One, and PC with a Nintendo Switch version to follow.

Check out the announcement trailer below.

MotoGP 19 looks to differentiate itself from previous titles with the addition of several new features including an innovative new AI system dubbed “Neural AI”.

According to developer Milestone, the new AI will be more challenging than before and will punish you for any mistakes made – at this point, we can only assume it learns from your riding and adapts to provide demanding racing.

We’ve criticised recent Milestone titles for having poor online multiplayer experiences – hopefully, this will be a thing of the past thanks to the addition of dedicated servers. That’s right, MotoGP 19 will benefit from latency-free dedicated servers which should improve the multiplayer experience severalfold and provide a great platform for the MotoGP Esports series.

To complement the new servers, a Race Director mode has also been added allowing you to create the perfect multiplayer race using your very own rules.

The last jewel in the MotoGP 19 crown is the Historical Challenges mode which enables you to relive the biggest MotoGP moments over the years racing as the legends of yesteryear.

Elsewhere, players can expect to get to grips with the new FIM Enel MotoE World Cup, where zero-emissions motorbikes challenge some of the most famous circuits of the MotoGP Championship.

After two successful outings, Dorna and Milestone have confirmed their MotoGP eSport Championship is coming back for a third time allowing players worldwide to challenge to win the World Champion title.

This third edition of the MotoGP eSport Championship will have a renewed formula – more information is expected to be revealed later this year.

Finally, MotoGP 19 will feature a “Graphics Editor” where you can create your own helmet, lower back patches and race number designs from a choice of shapes, colour shades, brushes, and levels.

That’s all we know for now, we’ll bring you much more on MotoGP 19 in the coming weeks so keep checking back for more.

They claim it will be the first racing game with this adaptive AI.

Does rFactor not have something like this included. Where you can run hot laps and the game learns from your driving to then adapt the AI you race against to give it a more real feel.

Good news about historical content. But I’ll believe claims of improved AI from Milestone when I see and feel it with my eyes and hands, respectively. This franchise has atrophied badly under the development of Milestone. Pretty sad that MotoGP and MotoGP 2 from Climax, released in the early 2000s, still remain the benchmark for MotoGP games on a console.
