That trailer physically hurt my brain. Are they marketing to AHDS teens?

Screens look good, but the real visual test will be the landscape, TSOs, Buildings. I enjoy MGP19, but they are always lagging behind contemporary games in track visuals - Bikes and Riders are fine.

Until we have access to a controller that can mimic what it is to ride a motorcycle, like we do for driving cars, any attempt to develop software is futile in a simulation perspective.
Feels like building a boat in a desert.

Couldn’t say it better. I would love to play this game if there were a motor wheel thing controller available.

Trailer starts promising but then turns into some sort of demolition derby on two wheels...

I did not see a word here about crashes - after the crash - no respawn, you will have to run to bike to pick it up and rejoin! After 20 years since sbk 2001 this feature returns.
Really ?
Is that true, you'll have to run for your bike ? That would be cool.
Although...
knowing how often I crash guess this option would be turned off after few days :geek:

I remember going to the arcade way back and playing a bike game, it was cool getting on the bike and going side to side. Maybe they'll have that soon for people that have that kind of room, $$$ and really want that immersion out of a bike sim.

I won’t join the bashing.

In general I think that Milestone has changed quite a lot in the last years, especially with their move to the Unreal engine and higher production value. Are all their seasonal releases spectacular? Does every new title bring significant improvements, no. But that’s part and parcel with seasonal sports titles. You either buy them for the new season if you are a real fan or if the cumulative changes are significant enough to tickle your fancy.

Personally I have enjoyed many Milestone games, MXGP, MESX, MotoGP and Ride series, especially all of the recent Unreal based titles.

That said, I will not get MotoGP 21 upon release for the very reason I mentioned - the changes do not appear significant enough for me, not seeing anything about physics or handling (at least not as a selling point). Maybe later this year after getting more mileage out of MotoGP 20.

...still on the fence about their upcoming MESX 4 game.
Looks like it will carry over some of the MXGP 20 changes I like, including the (imo) improved 1st person.

yeah, flame me - not a biker, so I don’t mind using a controller.

unfortunately a bike sim rig its most likely never gonna happen unless we re talking into 4 to 5 digits price (for which I would rather buy a real bike), theres no way you can manufacture a rig that cost close to a g29 or a t300 and so far the only attemps at bike sim hardware Ive seen its the one that was posted on RD a month or so ago (on which you couldnt handle, the bike moved according to a motogp replay lap).
On the other side, I think milestone are finally getting the most out of the genre, both motogp and mxgp 2020 have been one of their best iteration so far and even for a gamepad only experience I think they make a far bigger effort at getting a realistic experience when you compare it to the likes of Codemasters, besides their games looks stunning and UE4 supports bunch of mods, lets see what is new compare to last year game tho

From the official website:

• Bike Retrieval Sequence. Once you fall, you’ll no longer automatically respawn on track. You’ll have to get up and get back on your bike, as fast as you can. Pay attention to how you take the corners!

Having ridden bikes for over 25 years I've don't think it's been done any better than the early attempts like gp500. The main problem is you can't translate it into hardware as has been mentioned.

I'm quite happy to swap real driving for vr sim driving most of the time but nothing can replicate real riding.

AHDS? Don't you mean ADHD?

Also the music in that trailer is terrible and whoever made should be taken into a dark room and be beaten like the Oschersleben designer was.

Me in Superbike 2000 (also Milestone!).
"Cool, so AI-crashing means they will actually lose a lot of positions. This can be coooool" (I was 10... cool was probably used even more than that).
Race 3: "Turning this off. I crash more in one race than all AI's combined in 10".
