    The latest official MotoGP videogame from Milestone has been announced - introducing... MotoGP '19.


    Revealed by way of a very, very slick new trailer, MotoGP 19 is the latest in a long running series of official MotoGP games from the prolific Italian developer studio, and replicates the 2019 edition of the top level of international bike racing.

    Having gone through something of a upturn in fortunes with the last release, Milestone have again looked to develop and improve upon what was an already very solid base for this new game, providing what appears to be yet more content and improved playability as they look to bring more depth to the series with MotoGP 19.

    According to the details than can be found within the announcement trailer above, it appears as if the new for this season MotoE series will be represented in the new title, as will the inclusion of a legends gameplay feature that recreates some of the historic rivalries that have taken place over the years within the category.. so expect some Biaggi vs Rossi action when the game comes out later this year.

    For now information is a little thin on the ground as to exactly what has changed with the upcoming release, however stay tuned to RaceDepartment in the coming weeks and months as we bring you the latest news as and when it becomes available.

    MotoGP Key Features:

    Neural AI

    Remember when you were the king of the race? Old times: thanks to the Neural AI and to the Machine Learning, you’ll now face smarter, faster opponents who will exploit your mistakes. The challenge is about to get real.

    Historical Challenges
    Living the MotoGP™ competition is great but having the chance to relive the greatest moments of the past is something you’d rarely experience. Ride as some of the greatest riders of the past in their most iconic moments as professional racers.

    Single Player and Multiplayer
    A career mode that will let you pick your category of choice. Start from the Red Bull MotoGP™ Rookies Cup and climb your way up to the most prestigious teams, or simply jump-start your career as a MotoGP™ rider and grab the podium’s highest step. Or just dive into one of the many Single Player modes. If you like challenges, though, step into one of the many Multiplayer modes and test yourself against players around the world.

    MotoGP 19 will release June 6th for PS4, Xbox One and PC / Steam. The Nintendo Switch version will arrive a few weeks later.

    Check out the upcoming MotoGP 19 sub forum to keep in touch with all the happenings from Milestones new bike racing title, and to chat and get speculate about the game with your fellow MotoGP fans!

    Orobix is the company that collaborates with Milestone for the AI

    This is what one of Orobix's employees says:
    The in-game AI was the result of a close cooperation between us and Milestone. For now I can say that the new AI is very hard to beat and has surprising behaviors, both individually and in-group. It's the beginning of a new generation of in-game AI.

    The neural AI is the only new element.
    Historical challenges has been part of the series, but IMO feel bland as there are only modern renditions of tracks and relatively few historic bikes and riders.

    But advanced in AI are always interesting to follow.

    Wasn't a little bit too early for this ? Last one was out on 7 Jun, 2018.
    Another early access title or they need some fast cash ? :)
    Although, on more serious note... hyped, love the series.

    Finally we see some advances in AI using machine learning. I think simulators would hugely benefit from this approach.

    Open AI is a company from Ellon Musk focused on machine learning AI, and they have been improving immensely against Dota 2 players. Imagine this on Sims

    Well, it's coming 6th June, 2019, so almost a year after the last one, and I think you have to launch games yearly to maintain this kind of licenses (don't know how Kyloton managed the deal with WRC to not launch a 2018 season game).

    As for the game itself, the new AI sounds interesting, a little bit like the Drivatars of Forza in that they learn from you, but if it's as challenging as they say, it will a great step foward for us single-players. We'll have to wait and see.
    As for the Historic content, that's always welcome, but I hope they expand it a bit more from the one present in previous games. The 90s bikes are good, but I feel like they lack in numbers compared to 2000s bikes. And only if they would add some content from the 80s and 70s...

    Cool trailer, haven't played a MotoGP game since "MotoGP: Ultimate Racing Technology 3", so maybe it's time for a new one :p If it does somewhat well then I'll probably buy it
