Motorcycle racing game aficionados Milestone have announced RIDE 3, the latest entry in the two-wheeled racing series, which previously broke the Guinness World Record for 'Most Licensed Bikes in a Video Game' with RIDE 2. The follow-up will also feature loads of bikes - over 230 of 'em - across seven categories, including a new one.
Built around Unreal Engine 4, RIDE 3 promises "a completely revised experience", with new features and elements that aim to "make the player feel the adrenaline like a real rider." The game's realism is being ramped up with RIDE 3, with improved visual rendering, detailed particle and lighting effects, as well as new night time racing modes. Improved AI, a new physics simulation and revised collision system is also being touted.
RIDE 3 will also include 12 new tracks created using a Drone Scanning System (making 30 in total), a diverse range of mechanical and aesthetic customisation options, and a new Livery Editor. Mechanical customisation options will present you with more than 500 bike parts to tinker with, while the Livery Editor will enable you to create whatever liveries and decals you like before sharing them online.
With GPs, Supermoto tracks, Country and City circuits, Road Races and Drag Races, RIDE 3 is looking to cater to all two-wheeled racing tastes when it launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 8th November 2018. Check out the announcement trailer below.
