Milestone has released a trailer highlighting the new physics system found in the upcoming officially licensed supercross game Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 3, which is heading to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC Steam, Google Stadia and Nintendo Switch on February 4, 2020.
The new physics system affects bike behaviour both on track and in the air. Milestone is setting free the air rotation system and allowing players to freely perform their whips and scrubs – something fans have been asking for for years now.
Tracks will benefit from revised particles of fireworks and flames as well as dry and wet ground that is more detailed and realistic. Rider models have been completely re-made from scratch with photo scanning that now features a new set of animations including female rider animations for the first time.
Milestone has announced that for players pre-ordering the digital and physical PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will receive a free DLC containing the Outfit Starting Pack which includes 6 custom liveries for their bikes and 6 full gears with a suit, helmet and boots.
Physical pre-orders on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, in selected territories and retailers, will also receive the Neckbrace Pack DLC, with a glowing neckbrace that will make “each player stand out from the crowd”. You can check which territories and retailers qualify on supercrossthegame.com.
Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 3 will feature the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross season with 100 riders from both the 450SX and 250SX classes and 15 official stadiums. For the first time, it will also allow players to choose between a sponsor team or an Official Supercross Team of the 2019 Championship in Career Mode.
The Multiplayer Mode is now boosted with dedicated servers for a low latency gameplay experience, and Race Director Mode to create and manage online competitions. Players can also race in the co-op mode with 3 other friends, choosing different game modes in the replica of the legendary Factory Supercross Practice Tracks in California – a huge free-roaming area with 9 amazing tracks, where most of the OEMs test their bikes.
