Supercross fans can rejoice as a new off-road motorcycle racing game is in the works. Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame is set to launch on February 13, 2018, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with a Nintendo Switch version confirmed for release a short time later.
The project comes from the partnership between Milestone and Feld Entertainment, Inc., the former being known for developing racing game franchises like Superbike and WRC FIA. Feld produces live shows, such as Disney on Ice and Monster Jam, and its experience with setting up Supercross events will likely show in the final product.
“Feld’s expertise in creating valuable entertainment experiences combined with Milestone’s long-standing experience in developing racing games has paved the way for this high-quality title, which is setting up to be the most immersive journey ever in the world of Monster Energy Supercross,” said Milestone Vice President Luisa Bixio.
Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame boasts having innovative track designs set in famous stadiums, and it aims to have a realistic, immersive experience. Players can ride bikes modeled after real-world counterparts as recognizable athletes, including Ryan Dungey, Chad Reed, and Ken Roczen. Both the 250SX and the 450SX classes will see representation in this racing game.
The game will also feature a career mode, allowing players to customize their riders and the bikes as they embark on a journey to be a great Supercross athlete. Aside from building a career, players can build their own races using the in-game track editor. These courses can be shared online, creating a potentially deep library of dirt tracks to ride on.
The game is set to come with a companion smartphone app titled Monster Energy Supercross Game. Details on it are sparse, but it’s set to launch for iOS and Android in the same month of release.
