Players will enjoy a real docu -film narrated by Mark Neale, director of the best MotoGP documentaries, with over 50 minutes of original footage. But the players will not only witness the story, but they will also be part of it! The fate of the race will in fact be in the hands of the player thanks to challenges dedicated to relive the most iconic moments. Players will find themselves in the shoes of legendary drivers such as Rossi, Pedrosa, Stoner and Lorenzo, trying to replicate history! ”
MotoGP 22 also includes the entire 2022 season with all official content, including over 120 drivers and over 20 circuits. In addition, over 70 historic riders and motorcycles are available to bring back all the emotions of the MotoGP legends. The Managerial Career is back, allowing players to create their own team or insert a real one by managing every aspect of the strategy, from the development of the bike to the dedicated staff that will support the rider. Players can also customize the season itself by choosing which Grand Prix they want to play from a different set of calendars. And for the first time in the series, MotoGP 22 features the highly anticipated 2-player local split-screen, online multiplayer and cross-play between consoles of the same family.
MotoGP 22 adds new features dedicated to new riders, who are not familiar with the series and to those who simply want to improve their style and master the game mechanics: the Revised Tutorial and the new MotoGP Academy.
The Revised Tutorial is a series of short game sessions with custom rules to help new players understand the basics of the game and feel confident on the bike.
The new MotoGP Academy will teach you how to improve and refine your driving style to be faster on each track, through specific challenges focusing on electronics, tire wear, brake temperature and fundamental differences between the three main categories.
Moreover, the Adaptive Difficulty System will help players through in-game pop-up messages, suggesting how to adapt and change the difficulty level according to their skills. For example, the game might recommend lowering the difficulty if players do not complete specific challenges or enable some aids in case of too many crashes, or even suggest playing the tire wear tutorial in case they have finished a race with the tires in poor condition. These hints will appear at the end of the race and players will be free to follow them or not.
MotoGP 22 will offer this novelty:
- New face animations and improved 3D characters
- Ride Height Device: Players will be able to manually manage the locking mechanism and control the compression of the bike’s suspension
- Improved tracks: Surfaces have been improved for better driveability
- Improved Suspension System: Improved for a better feel
- Tire and brake temperatures are now affected by slipstream, for both gamers and AI
- Tire deformation, a more realistic tire behavior that makes the experience even closer to reality
