    The much anticipated TT Isle of Man: The Game is nearing release - check out these new previews..

    With a launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC scheduled for a much delayed March date, Kylotonn Racing Games and Bigben Interactive have confirmed the title has now launched its own Steam store page, and for good measure we get plenty of very attractive looking new preview images from the upcoming (and rather exciting sounding) new bike racing game.

    Furthermore and as a consiqunce of the new Steam page, KT Racing Games have also now confirmed the minimum specifications required to run the game on PC. It is worth noting that the developers expect these requirements to change nearer launch day, and as such they remain provisional for now:

    Minimum:
    • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    • OS: Windows® 7 64bits
    • Processor: Intel® Core i3 / AMD Phenom™ II X2
    • Memory: 4 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 650 / AMD Radeon™ HD 7750
    • DirectX: Version 11
    • Storage: 20 GB available space
    • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible Soundcard
    -----------------------

    About the Game
    • THE SNAEFELL MOUNTAIN COURSE FAITHFULLY REPRODUCED: 37.73 miles of roads and 264 bends for a race that is longer and more difficult than all GP circuits together.
    • THE OFFICIAL RIDERS AND THEIR ULTRA-POWERFUL MOTORBIKES: 25 riders and 38 motorbikes hurtling along mountain roads at over 180 mph.
    • REALISTIC DRIVING APPROVED BY TT RIDERS: lifelike motorbike behaviour to experience the real sensations of driving, just like on the actual course.
    • ONLINE COMPETITION FOR UP TO 8 PLAYERS.

    TT Isle of Man: The Game will release March 2018 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

    Anyone know if there has been any talk of other tracks being added to the game later? The TT Course is the main attraction of the game I know but they could add some other famous tracks like the Southern and Northern road races and maybe Dundrod as in the old Jester Interactive TT games. Surely it wouldn't be too hard to make those other tracks which are relatively tiny compared to the TT course for updates and / or DLC. Would add a lot to the replayability which is to be honest my main concern for the game at the moment. Also, what about historic bikes / riders, another thing the old games had which (apart from licensing) shouldn't be too hard to do.

    Will it have PC wheel support? Or be like Ride 2 (which I refunded) and expect 21st Century play with only keyboard?

    This sucker will certainly get your Adrenaline racing, I never liked them when they were new and after restoring this and 'testing' it for the client I still dislike them intensely.
    Nothing can capture the drama of riding the Mountain under 'supervision' when one is just on a road bike (KTM 1098 in my case) when the 'Public' get to tackle the circuit. Been there, done that, got the skid-marks on my undies..........:D

    Never heard that comment before ,
    I highly doubt there will be wheel support and why would people play it with a keyboard ?
    these games are designed to be used on a control pad lol :D

    Hmmm, sounds okkk.
    I'm glad that I'll have the TT course again, memories of my first ever console game, TT Superbikes will come flooding back, but I think 25 riders and 38 motorbikes doesn't sound enough. It sounds like from that they've just got all the top few riders and got every bike they ride. What about those that are further down, they'll let you do it for free. No reason why they can't just reskin the bikes they have to include the whole 2017/2018 grid! Now that would be more like it! Plus 8 online is hugely disappointing, not sure why as MotoGP/ Ride have 16/24 (?) players online. Perhaps due to the length of the circuit? I'll still get it as it will probably have modding possibilities to put other riders/ bikes in.

    I agree, 1 circuit gets very boring, very quickly. To be honest I'd prefer an Irish Road Racing game with all the small Irish/ Isle of Man events plus Ulster GP, North West 200 and Southern 100 races instead of 1 mammoth circuit.

    They talked initially about having some other, fictional, circuits. The PS2 TT Superbikes Real Road Racing game had the best tracks, including Macau!

    That game was my life when I was young, the return of Macau, Ulster GP and North West 200 would be a big help imo.

    How can you possibly use a steering wheel for a motorcycle game? Come on. A controller is just about good enough these days but not wheel. But I am looking forward to this because I really really want a good Isle of Man TT course game and remember, you don't need loads of teams because you hardly see other competitors and only occasionally get to be following one or having one follow you. It's not a race, it's a Time Trial.

    But having spoken to someone who is connected and in the know, I am not expecting great things from Kyloton. Now if they transferred this track to Ride 2, that would be something.


    Oh while I'm having a moan, these idiots who do the advertising/PR obviously don't know that you don't drive a motorcycle, you ride it.
