Having stormed into the off-road bike racing marketplace with the officially licenced Monster Energy Supercross: The Videogame back in 2018, Italian game development studio Milestone have made great strides with the franchise over the last 18 months - and they claim the new release will be a further upgrade from earlier additions in the franchise.
New for Supercross 3, Milestone have confirmed the title will "allow players to choose between a sponsor team or an official Supercross team of the 2019 Championship in Career Mode" giving players the opportunity to become a teammate of their favourite Supercross rider for the first time within the franchise.
Featuring the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross season, including 100 riders from both the 450SX and 250SX Classes of the championship, the new game will contain 15 official stadiums and tracks at launch, with the ability for users to create their own venues via the game editing feature once again returning for the latest release.
You can read the full press release below:
With Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame 3, players can now also race in co-op mode with 3 other friends, choosing different game modes in the replica of the legendary Factory Supercross Practice Tracks in California. A huge free roaming area with 9 amazing tracks, where most of the OEMs that compete in the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship test their bikes.
And once you’ve practiced, you’ll be ready to challenge other players in the brand new Online Multiplayer Mode, now boosted with Dedicated Servers for a lag-free gameplay experience, and Race Director Mode to create amazing online tournaments, deciding from the players’ starting positions, to assigning penalties or choosing which cameras to focus on. Championship, Quick Race or Elimination Mode, players can choose their favorite game mode, browsing through Public and Private Lobbies to find their right match. There are many ways to show who’s the best Supercross rider!
After great success with the previous game, more than 53,000 tracks were created by our passionate community, the Track Editor is back and it’s better than ever: new modules and new stadium items to customize tracks in a unique way. Thanks to brand new aestetic customization items, such as Touch Block, Finish Gates or Leader Pillars, players can now enhance realism and immersion of their custom tracks.
For Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame 3; developers worked hard to improve several technical aspects that will impact both graphics and the overall gameplay experience. Rider and secondary character models have been completely re-made from scratch with photo scanning that now feature a new set of animations.
The new model system allowed us to add for the first time, a Female Rider model with its own animations and physics. Players can select a Female Custom Rider amongst different models to be the next Supercross Champion.
Tracks are more alive, thanks to revised particles of fireworks, flames, dry and wet ground that are more detailed and realistic. On the gameplay side, physics has been completely revised to be adapted to the new riders’ animations and a new in-air bike control system has been implemented to improve bike handling during jumps.
Monster Energy Supercross 3 will release on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia February 4th 2020.
