The biking world has often not always had the love or investment of its 4 wheeled counterpart. But there is no denying that equal passion exists within automotive gaming fans to share and relive that feeling of hitting the open road on a machine that captures the emotional feelings and connection only an automotive experience can provide. However, getting that feeling right depends on a range of factors, from the visuals to the audio, physics to intuitive behavior. The latter part has always been more challenging when it comes to the biking genre. We’ll investigate all of these further in future content but first let’s dive into our preview video to find out what progress has been made.
First impressions, graphics have taken another step up, improvements to bike models are clear to see and they look absolutely fantastic. Various materials convey lighting, while complex geometry is effortlessly presented, we are getting to a position of photorealism and no doubt with ray tracing and other techniques that goal will be achieved in the coming years. Circuits have also had a lick of paint and look far better than early trailers would have had you believe.
But rather than go into great detail at this stage, I’m going to leave you with our latest preview video. Ride 4 is out for Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC on October 8th and on next gen consoles early next year.
