Milestone announced today that the latest installment of the RIDE franchise, RIDE 4, will launch this coming fall.
RIDE 4 Details
Milestone stated in the release announcement that RIDE 4 will feature authentic and iconic motorcycles, as well as a new game mode, unique gameplay and a renewed Career mode.
In terms of the motorcycle models, RIDE 4 will feature bike models that were created using advanced technology and the original CAD and 3D scans of real models. Milestone noted that every bike model has been carefully replicated to their real-life counterpart.
RIDE 4‘s Career mode will allow gamers to control their progression toward greatness from the very beginning. From competing in local and international events, and access to special races and challenges, players will have the ability to control every aspect of their racer’s career. The competition, though, won’t be easy, as A.N.N.A. (Artificial Neural Network Agent) technology will increase the difficulty as gamers progress in Career mode.
Several other additions to the RIDE franchise include a new ‘Endurance’ mode, a refined Multiplayer mode and the addition of the Yamaha Motor and Bridgestone brands.
‘Endurance’ will give gamers the “hardest challenge that only the best virtual racers can face.” The new mode, according to Milestone, allowed the developers to boost the realism of motorcycle racing with dynamic lighting, weather conditions and pit stops for tires and fuel management.
RIDE‘s mutiplayer gameplay should also feel a little different this year. RIDE 4‘s Multiplayer mode will, for the first time, feature dedicated servers that will make gameplay more smooth.
