Greetings PlayStation gamers, my name is Irvin Zonca, and I’m the Head of Design at Milestone. I’m here today to tell you about RIDE, a title more experienced riders and simulation fans have been waiting to get their hands on for the last few months.



What is RIDE?

It’s a game that really captures Team Milestone’s passion for the genre, where the bikes themselves are the undisputed protagonists. Right from the start, the aim has been to offer gamers the chance to take part in thrilling races on real-world tracks, where it wouldn’t normally be possible to ride at these speeds. The game features over 100 bike models across four different categories:
  • Superbikes
  • Supersports
  • Naked Bikes
  • Historic Bikes
Developing the game, the team has done their utmost to replicate these bikes in-game down to the last detail. These are real bikes that you all know, models that are available on the market.



Is it possible to customise your rider?

In RIDE you can choose your avatar, male or female, and customise your appearance, such as hair, specifying style and colour, and so on. We have included a vast range of over a hundred clothing accessories. Each one is an accurate reproduction of items available on the market. You can customise the appearance of your RIDE-AVATAR with:
  • Helmets
  • Visors
  • Suits
  • Boots
  • Gloves
  • Jeans
  • Jackets


And what about bikes?

We set about designing upgrade packs for the bikes as well, so that the individual parts could be changed and mounted as required, while staying faithful to the concept that everything available in the game would be available in real life as well.

Customisable parts include:
  • Engine
  • Transmission
  • Brakes
  • Suspension
  • Wheels
The modifications influence performance on the track, and in some cases – such as the exhaust system – the sound of your bike as you roar around the circuit.

How can the player unlock all this goodies?

To maintain that impulsive, spontaneous spirit, and offer a complete game experience, all the clothing accessories and bike parts are available right away, and can be unlocked via a system of in-game Credits. You earn this virtual currency in any online and offline mode.



And what about the most demanding players?

For fans who like to keep everything under their own control, we’ve provided options to comprehensively modify the position of the rider on the bike, and a series of indicators such as lateral and frontal head angle, shoulder position, seat position and inside knee position.

The RIDE launch is almost upon us, and we’re confident you’re going to appreciate the care and attention to detail we’ve put into developing the game. I’m really curious to see what you come up with to share with the community when you activate the RIDE Photo Mode and take snapshots of the adrenaline-fuelled action.

All they need to do is port and polish Riding Spirits 2 to the PS4. Best motorbike game made. Period.

That was an under-rated gem of a game. Taking on the litre V-twins with a highly modified rgv250 and winning....Perla.

@Bloodfairy can I get another PS2 pretty please? You got a note 4 remember.

You're both wrong Super Hang-on was the best Bike game ever :oldgamer:

Followed closely behind by Roadrash

Did that have the mighty ZX7R in it? Then no, you sir are wrong. Besides, Road Rash was darn good.
Probably because the ZX7R came out in 96 :lol:

Yes it did. Well played sir.

Last of the great super bikes before the V-twins ruined it all. Still remember seeing Stroud race one in the UK many moons ago then seeing him in the pits. Prick of a bike to ride in traffic mind you.

113 bikes from 14 manufactors. Some really nice bikes in the line up BUT.....
- no 250 2 strokes (rgv etc)
- no R7
- no ZX7R BUT a ZX7RR woop.

Looks promising. And there's even a test or 2 in the mix. Nice.

I just hope they can get some semi-decent physics. Motorcross/supercross games tend to play ok but it's been ages since I've found a road/track game that plays ok. Here's hoping....

MotoGP14 is pretty good.

Last decent bike game I really enjoyed was Tourist Trophy by Polyphony Digital (Gran Turismo).

Though I loved Road Rash, still got my copy of that.

Had a very brief try at the demo - I've played worse. Need a longer session before I can make more comment though

Ditto. I sucked at it but was getting better. Will try the other bikes next time.

Looked nice and everything but might pass on it.
