    MXGP3 - 7.jpg
    Italian game development team Milestone yesterday released the third instalment of the popular MXGP game franchise, bringing the official game of the 2016 MXGP series.

    Available for both console and PC, MXGP3 is the first instalment of the franchise to make use of the ever impressive Unreal 4 game engine and as such boasts some considerably impressive visuals that easily lifts this new game above previous entries into the series.

    As is expected with an official licence to recreate the popular MXGP bike racing series, the new game will feature all the tracks, bikes and riders of the most recent MXGP championship and will also include some impressively implemented weather and track deformation effects, again building from previous editions of the franchise in order to move the game on to the next step from its humble beginnings.

    Although the game is available now, North American fans will have to wait until June 20th.

    No 720p on the PC version. Game was patched today to fix the resolution issue. Playing just fine at 4k now.

    Typical, Steam forums go into immediate spoilt brat meltdown, meanwhile the user reviews that are starting to show up all seem to be positive.

    Granted it has no direct competition so its pretty easy to be the best of the bunch....

    I have played the game, the handling and physics is actually surprisingly good.
    I like the graphics, but somethings is just BAD... watch whenever you race in the wet. the rain looks just like someone added a rain filter on the image. the riders/track dont get any type of water effect. its just lines on the images "representing" that its wet weather...

    Just look at this, this is what im talking about... small issues, but its there!

    I have not gotten to much into the cons, but the impression is that its a good concept of what is to come!

    Otherwise i think milestone is going in the right direction! the Unreal engine is definitely the right way to go! i would love to see what they can do with MotoGP18

    After the huge deception that was Ride, no way I'll ever support Milestone again.

    Dont matter what res you playing at, still 720p upscaled it seems, for a 2017 game looks terrible, 100% console port, and the unreal engine games are all blurry unless you disable AA, shame, only got to look on the steam forum for this game, go as far as saying my mxgp1 looks better.

    I bought the game, uninstall MXGP2 and fun is about to start. :inlove:
    At least I thought...
    Damn game won't recognize my Logitech 3D which I use for games like these.
    Ok, I'll plug generic playstation type controller (although I hate to play with it, I used to use ordinary joystick for motorcycles) that will solve it, right ? But no. Again... no recognition. :poop:
    So I was left to play with keyboard. Which I eventually did. But that sucks. And I can't give any game review based on ...that.
    So for me, unless I solve it (somehow?) only way out would be to refunding.
    Such a shame. And shame that I'll have to re-install MXGP2 once again.
    And it's not like I'm the only one.. internet is full with people who have problems with their controllers in Milestone games.
    One good thing about the game is that they move (finally!) graphic settings to within the damn game. Better late then never, it's only 2017. :rolleyes:
    I used to play that game too.
    This game don't remind me of that one. At all.
    Where you can "freeroaming" in this one ?

    Not true. Is your game pirated and not patched? It's true 4k for me after the day 2 patch, no upscaling.

    Clearly states the day 1 resolution issue has been fixed here in the first patch.

    http://steamcommunity.com/games/561600/announcements/detail/1261418540130084185

    FYI, there's no blur If you turn down the motion blur from the high setting. Low or off makes everything clear.

    Not got mxgp3, just from what i have read and all the streams i have seen, all UE games have the blur mate if AA enabled, fact/and know problem, get it on Squad and PUG, oh, and just because you have a 4K res dont mean textures has not been upscaled, just like with xbox one games running at 720/900 and still res of 1080P

    If you have a 4k monitor or screen you would know there's a huge difference between true 4k and upscaled 4k. I'm telling you now, its not upscaled, its true 4K. The difference between 720p upscaled to 4k and true 4k is so dramatic that even a blind man would notice. Obviously you don't own the game or at least legally, if you did you would know the day 1 resolution issue is fixed and its not upscaled.

    Wondering whether to pick this up for my Xbox One. Was watching some of the championship round in France this morning and looked so much fun. Hadn't watched any of this type of racing for many a year tbh. Only issue for me is the controller. I use a wheel for my racing but would have to use the pad for this and I am not so great on that lol.

    I'm not sure are you even safe eith that controller too... like I said earlier... my BOTH controllers aren't recognized ?!? Maybe I'm the most unluckiest person on Planet but ...somehow I doubt.
    As for the game... I've played it with my keyboard ! Dammit I thought I would never have to say this, since I have FOUR different controllers AND a wheel! (G27, which I didn't even try with the damn game cuz it would make me feel really silly to drive motorcycle with it and maybe even he wouldn't work too:alien:)
    So... game isn't bad at all. For sure better than MXGP2, gameplay, collisions (with other drivers. although landings do feel a bit too soft, generic ..somehow), menus (you can set graphic inside the game, I swear, can you believe it?), even sounds, graphic (much better, some shots I take look like real life photos, I swear!) but just that damn controller(s) non-recognition... :(

    Is there any further comment on the AI? I watched the VVV video earlier this morning and he was racing the medium AI and it seemed very easy for him but he did say he had played it a lot. HOw many AI levels are there?

    Still thinking of picking this up... I keep wondering about picking up a motor bike racing game but the controller issue always puts me off.

    I got this on Steam this past weekend. It's been a long time since I played any game without a steering wheel involved. Very impressed with this game! I raced MX for many years (40) and this is the closest thing to reality I've experienced. All the fun with no broken bones.
