Learn the techniques in the newest MXGP videos.
MXGP: The Official Motocross Videogame is about to launch, and ahead of the launch, to ease players into what promises to be a highly authentic motocross simulation, publisher Milestone has released a series of videos that should essentially act as tutorials for the game’s mechanics for new players.
The first two video tutorials (see above) teach players scrubbing and jumping techniques.
“On a motocross track, the jump’s phase is highly critical for saving or losing valuable time. Thanks to the feedback given by professional riders while developing the game we’ve been able to add all the settings that control the flight making the riding experience of MXGP as real as possible. Accelerating or using the rear brakes, players can control the bike’s angle while landing. They can also handle the rider’s weight distribution which will change the flight trajectory,”affirms Alessandro Castrucci, Milestone’s Game Director.
“Even the fulfillment of tricks becomes really important during a race. A well done scrub allows the rider to minimize the time spent in the air, making a lower and faster jump allow the rider to land earlier with a speed boost. Video tutorials will guide players to master these techniques, conveying the thrill of Motocross even to casual players without restricting hardcore gamers to play and pursue their own riding style” concludes Castrucci.
MXGP launches on PS3, PS Vita, Xbox 360, and PC March 28.
