Italy’s leading videogame developer for consoles and PC, and the world’s foremost motorcycle videogame developer, releases a trailer dedicated to Milan included in RIDE, its first exclusive IP – playable from 20 March 2015 – on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Xbox One, Windows PC, Steam, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
The city of Milan gives its streets over to the pure adrenalin of competitive motorcycling, on a series of tracks that allow riders to race past the city’s historic palazzos and monuments. Landmarks include: the Corso Como Arch, situated at the centre of Milan’s thriving social life; the Milano Centrale Station, the historic building that houses Italy’s second largest and second busiest railway station, featuring over 11,000 square metres of polished marble; the Unicredit Palazzo; the Pirelli Tower; and the modernist Palazzo Lombardia. The Milan city track has three variants: two 3 km circuits, and one 4 km circuit, offering players the unprecedented opportunity of experiencing the thriving Mediterranean city from the seat of their own motorcycle. All the environments and circuits have been faithfully recreated by the Milestone team, who took to the streets of the city in person and studied them in minute detail to create a realistic and compelling environment for players all over the world.
RIDE: Milestone’s development studios in Italy are back at work, doing what they do best. The developers are tearing up the rulebook and bringing a raft of new ideas to the table.
