    Milestone has announced the arrival of a Digital Deluxe edition for its motorcycle racing title, RIDE.

    The upcoming title from the Italian studio will feature over 100 customizable bikes and 15 locations, along with a World Tour career mode, offline and multiplayer modes.This special edition will be available exclusively on Steam and will feature the following contents:
    • “Why We Ride” (2014) directed by Brian H. Carroll. This documentary film captures the passion of motorcycle riding, and shows the camaraderie of friends and families who ride together.
    • Season Pass: The RIDE Season Pass gives access to all four add-on packs for the game, including the two that have already been announced and two that will be revealed shortly, for a total of more than 15 bikes built between 1998 and 2015.
    • Making-Of Booklet (English Only): This book explains how, from conception to realization, Milestone created its first ever proprietary IP. The book covers a range of topics, from the creation of the tracks to bike and rider customisation, and from the history of each of the 14 manufacturers to the development of the game physics.
    • Official Soundtrack: All 17 tracks from the official soundtrack in .mp3 format
    Strangely enough there's no price for the game and its digital deluxe edition yet, as the Steam page just shows a countdown timer to the release date (27 march, with a demo due out on the 18th). Are you going to buy Milestone's new motorbike racing game, and do you think it could be a spiritual successor to Polyphony's 2004 title Tourist Trophy?

    There's also very little quality footage of this game which is also puzzling with release date of March 20. Doesn't sound too positive.

    Huh. Thanks for the information, the latest press release didn't say anything about the delay.

    Cautiously optimistic about this, I like the idea of the game and the customizable bikes.

    The Xbox versions have been delayed until April (10th I believe).

    I always like the idea of racing the bike games but whenever I try them I struggle. I assume everyone uses a pad as a controller for them? I struggle with the pad (all fingers and thumbs and forget what button is for what lol) as am used to a wheel and pedals for my motor racing titles.
