MotoGP 20 | Career Features Revealed (New Trailer)

Building up to a release this April 23rd, development team Milestone have revealed some of the key features that will form the career portion of the upcoming MotoGP 20 bike racing videogame.

The next instalment of the long running MotoGP franchise of games is just around the corner, and for MotoGP '20, Italian development team Milestone appear to have been hard at work producing an impressive number of new and immersive aspects for the game.

One of the key updates for the latest addition is an enhanced and expanded career mode within the title - going deeper and more detailed than ever before in an attempt to further immerse gamers into the world of MotoGP.

'Echoing real life, one of the key figures at the top of the team is the personal manager, whose work can truly make a difference when it comes to sponsorship and contract opportunities. Players will need to evaluate all the offers they receive, both from real-life teams and new teams created by the player, looking carefully at their engagement and expectations before taking a decision. If players select a new team, they will be able to make their rider and bike stand out using different graphic editors to modify the helmet, racing number, lower-back patch, stickers and bike livery. The personal manager's skills come into play when tasked to try and craft a stronger team, or negotiate a better salary, following the player's indications'.

As well as the corporate and sponsorship side of management, MotoGP 20 will also touch upon the bike development aspects of the series, giving players the opportunity to have a direct influence on the development progress of their team and bike. From the hiring of key staff members and spending of available budget, to track testing and validation, teamwork will be one of the key elements of success within the new game.

Also included in MotoGP 2020 will be winter and mid-season tests, where players will be tasked with developing their bike via a choice of up to 3 different packs with various engines and frame combinations as they aim to find the perfect settings for the season. Once the season starts, players can also improve performances of different bike parts, earning and spending development points and allocating their R&D staff to reach the highest level. Aerodynamics, electronics, engine power and fuel consumption amongst other interactive elements of the game.

To tease just a little bit more, the recent press release also states that 'For the first time, Milestone also announces brand-new features that will support the game after launch, that will further expand contents of the Managerial Career gameplay; more details about the post launch features will be revealed soon...'

Plenty to get excited about here!

And the recent MotoGP19 has 50 hist. drivers, 35+ bikes and 3 additional hist. tracks.

Newest release Supercross 3 seems to have a different handling model which might be the more progressive feature. We'll see..

Not saying u should have my taste, but I never cared for careers, stories, cinematic videos, contracts, tv interviews, 3d crowds around tracks, padges, leaderboards, laptimes comparison, hotlaps. getting a new bike, earning a new livery, Victorious screenshots, being called a hero, glory, no glory....etc.

I just (F)ing drive I'm a driver.

While I'm at the complete opposite end. Unless it is a car-simulator, the main point for me in playing games are the immersive modes, career-mode, manager-mode etc.

Good thing people are different :)

That's like the least important thing to me. I literally never use it at all.
Hate fantasy liveries, it has to be real or else I lose all inspiration to ride. :D

Looks like I will be buying my first MotoGP game since 2007.

I love to have a proper career mode and lots of customization features in a game.

I hope the AI will be fun to race against.

It looks really promising so far. The only thing that bugs me, is that your personal manger can be born in 2000 yet have 10 years experience. That's a bit unrealistic. Damn, if I could have that much experience at the age of 21, there's no way I would be sitting on a fake game I'll tell you that much

I don't like that you can upgrade your engine power, it should be locked as real life
From Steam-discussions it seems like you are not upgrading the engine directly, but working on non-locked things (not that I know what that would be) which have some sort of impact on engine power.

Instead of all this they better would work on full crash depiction, retirements (both technical and crash), riders running to pick up the bikes, not stupid respawn... and there should be mouse support in replay menu as well.
Also - crashes in are too short, but why on-bike cameras (in replay) switch to external view during crash? Even in Motogp15 they remained "attached" to bike...

I have asked before - but does this neural thing give the MotoGP AI bots an edge compared to the more scripted bots in other racing games?
