    Not massive in size, but useful nevertheless, another small patch for TT Isle of Man: The Game has been deployed to the PC version of the title.


    Having proven popular with bike racing fans and gamers on both console and PC, Isle of Man TT: The Game is doing a solid job of living up to the awesome reputation of the legendary road race, and it seems like Kylotonn Racing Games are keen to keep the momentum rolling with a respectable post release patch program well underway by the French development studio.

    Next up in the improvement stakes comes a small update earlier today aimed at improving controller support, adding full support for Steam Controllers and PS4 gamepads, with the Steam Controller, Xbox and PS4 controllers now working with the racing title via Steam Link.

    At present the update is only for PC, with a update expected to land on Xbox One in the near future.

    Interested to see what the game looks like at the hands of an expert? Check out the full lap footage from TT legend John McGuiness HERE.

    TT Isle of Man: The Game is available now for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. PC release will follow on March 27th.

    Looks like they've posted the wrong screenshot, the texture on the rear disc is the same as the tires :whistling:

    (and there's no chain on the sprocket)

    Hope that mistake means they are working more in the gameplay-physics than the visuals :whistling:

    "adding full support for Steam Controllers"
    Awesome, been waiting for that! Let's see if gyro-steering is feasable. Anyone tried that already?

    This looks like one of those games that will be a great buy 6 months after release when the game has been refined & price has come down.Will be interesting to see where this game goes in the future.Will they add the Northwest & Cookstown races which are different to the TT because they all race together.

    I'm praying for a patch to refine the physics, some really weird non bike stuff goes on. If I'm honest I'm really starting to think they shoe horned bikes physics into car physics. Lock up the front and instead of tucking and going down like a sack of spuds (Lorenzo at Qatar), the bike just slides along whilst upright, not good IMO. And the rear behaviour is just awful.

    Still, it's an utterly amazing rendition of the TT course and just brilliant on that basis alone I love it despite the pain of not being able to understand why I crash!. Sort out those physics quirks and the game would be mind blowing.

    I agree, plenty to enjoy whilst I wait for this game to be more finished and cheaper.

    Well I i only paid 20 quid for it and it has been the game of the decade for me (but I am a TT nut anyway).

    On the TT though, it's a pity about Bruce Ansty (my favourite TT racer) and John McGuiness missing out. Poor old Bruce. Such a nice fella too.:( On the other hand, Guy Martin might get the chance to win one now. His last chance I would suggest.

    edit: In case people on here didn't know, Bruce's Cancer has come back. And John McGuiness's leg injury is now preventing him from from possibly doing a TT.

    It's well worth it now even at £17.99 on cd keys it is a bargain, it is not perfect but what driving/racing game is? The thrill of nailing even a section of the IOM circuit is like nothing else out there. This from a 4 wheel man.

    Get on board!

    Agree 100%
    Absolutely a bargain. Jeez, some of the car games charge that for a little DLC, a track or a car or two. Hell some modders are charging similar just for some car mods.
    Add to that the feeling of satisfaction of finishing a 6 lap senior TT race in any position in the top ten with completely clean laps is like nothing else experienced in gaming for me. I actually need a rest to calm down from the concentration needed to do clean laps from the helmet view with no aids at all. :thumbsup:

    I have no interest in bike games but I would say if you have any at all then you should get this, the track modelling itself makes it worth the price of admission.
    As you can read, even when people have issues with the physics or handling they are enjoying the game. What more can you ask for.

    Anyone suffering stuttering since patches released? When I first installed game I had it but put FPS cap in the Steam launcher and cured it and was able to have graphic settings high on my PC but now get a stutter now and again.

    Blimey.. here in Xbox land we are still waiting for the first patch!! Promised for this week so I am really hoping it's tomorrow.. purleaseeeee :giggle:

    I can only echo other sentiments here though that despite any issues re the physics (I am a non-biker so they probably pass me by) this game is just the dogs doo-dars. I have not had anything blow me away from day one in a long time.... if ever actually!!

    I had to limit mine also, the only time I get any lag/stutter is when starting a new lap not enough too be a pain but it is there.

    The track is outstanding. Worth 17 quid all day long.

    I've always had a brief freeze whenever I've crossed a split time area, including the start/finish line. Other than that it's fine, but I would like that freeze gone. Lethal when you're doing the TT going at 180mph and suddenly there's a freeze as the latest times come up, completely throws your momentum out and can end up in a crash.
