    Milestone Interactive have announced the third instalment to the popular MXGP series of games is due to be released Spring of this year, representing the full 2016 MXGP, MXGP 2 and MXoN racing season.

    Milestone confirm the new title will utilise the ever popular Unreal 4 game engine for the first time, promising fans the move will "take the game experience to a surprising new level". MXGP 3 will accurately represent all the teams, riders and locations of the 2016 MXGP season, plus supporting series MXGP 2 and the MXoN, both in offline and online modes.

    Although the game will be targeted towards a wide audience of skills and experiences, Milestone still promise an impressive array of simulation aspects within the new title, such as dynamic weather conditions from sun to heavy rain and fully deformable track conditions, with both muddy surfaces and dust simulated across the tracks in game. Also confirmed for the new title, which is something of a rarity in more recent racing games, is the plan for MXGP 3 to incorporate a sizable career mode for players to enjoy. Unfortunately due to the very nature of the early announcement very few details are currently know as to what exactly the career mode will look like come launch.

    Check out the brand new MXGP 3 trailer to see the first in game shots below:

    More about the game from Milestone:

    MXGP is back! The third chapter is being rebuilt from the ground up to bring the gaming experience to a new level, thanks to the Unreal® Engine 4 full power!

    The complete season of MXGP 2016, including MXoN, is just the tip of the iceberg: gameplay and physics improvements, along with brand new and gorgeous graphics, will assure a complete immersion in the MXGP world. Dynamic changing weather, high resolution terrain deformation, updated physics are just some of the features that will make MXGP3 more than real.

    MXGP 3 will be available for Windows PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 sometime during Spring 2017.

    I'm not a huge fan of Milestone, but 2 things I'd like to see happen is Codemasters gets their WRC license and Milestone gets a license for AMA Monster Energy Supercross/AMA Lucas Oil Outdoor Motocross series.

    1 Man was able to create an MX Sim with a modder base capable of replicating the entire AMA Supercross series in sync with the real life schedule. I'm confident a development team could at least do half that.

    I don't know how, but Milestone always manages to make their teasers look like the NFS Porsche Unleashed intro, even if the in-game graphics are somewhat decent. There's something wrong with the rendering, I guess.

    WRC license doesn't belong to Milestone anymore since 2012. It has been owned by Big Ben Interactive since 2013.

    Hopefully they get the sounds sorted out. I hate racing with a bike that sounds like a wet fart.
