The brand new Season 2009 is a brand-new mode in MotoGP 22 that will let you re-live one of the most incredible seasons in the MotoGP history. Players will enjoy a real docu-film narrated by Mark Neale, director of the best MotoGP documentaries, with more than 50 minutes of original footage from the 2009 Season.
But players won’t just witness history, they will be part of it too! In fact, the fate of the race will be in the player’s hands thanks to dedicated challenges to re-live and play the most iconic moments. Players will find themselves in the boots of legendary riders such as Rossi, Pedrosa, Stoner and Lorenzo, trying to replicate history!
For 2022, MotoGP 22 has also added new features dedicated to the newcomers who are not familiar with the series, and to those who simply want to improve their style and master the gameplay mechanics. With the Revised Tutorial and the new MotoGP Academy now everyone can become a champion.
The Revised Tutorial is a series of short gameplay sessions with custom rules, to help new players to understand the basics of the game and feel confident on the bike. The new MotoGP Academy will teach how to improve and perfect their riding style to be faster on every track, through specific challenges focused on electronics, tire consumption, brakes temperature and core differences between the three main categories.
But that’s not all—the Adaptive Difficulty System will help players through in-game pop-up messages, suggesting how to adapt and modify the difficulty level based on their skills. For example, the game could recommend lowering the difficulty if players do not complete specific challenges or enable some help in case of too many falls, or even suggest playing the tutorial dedicated to the tire consumption in case they finished a race with tires in bad conditions.
These hints will appear at the end of the race and players are free to follow these suggestions or not. Racing game fans who have always dreamed of crossing the finish line like the greatest champions will soon have the perfect game to improve their driving style and be crowned champions in MotoGP.
This new trailer demonstrates what the team behind the game have been working on to give both novice and experienced gamers all the help they need to have fun with their favorite bikes.
Gamers who are just starting out in two-wheel racing can get acquainted with motorcycling with the help of the extensive tutorial. All guides and demonstrations have been revised to provide even more support. At the beginning of the introductions, players are familiarized with the basics of the controls. They follow the ideal line using the curve display and overtake their teammates for the first time without disregarding the penalty system.
As they progress, they embark on a few different racetracks, achieving different goals and following specific rules. Then it’s on to more advanced challenges where they learn a more strategic approach. You will learn about fuel consumption, tire wear and braking and braking behavior and many other technical aspects to keep an eye on – just like a real driver would.
Experienced Riders: Players looking to become a true pro should consider attending the MotoGP Academy. This new mode features the 21 official MotoGP circuits: each with five different time challenges, with the first four linked to individual sectors of the circuit and the last to the entire circuit. In each challenge they have to beat three times: bronze, silver and gold. The minimum requirement is to achieve bronze in the first four challenges in order to be able to do the final step on the entire route. On-screen tips help Drivers:Inside be better prepared for these challenges, and when they achieve the best time, a ‘ghost driver’ is generated that will lap time their next target.
Right after this intensive training, the players are ready for real races. You choose your game mode and try to customize the racing options and driving assistance based on your skill level. They also get help in the game.
Each achievement – in Time Attack, Singles Grand Prix, Career Mode or NINE Season 2009 – is linked to an analysis that evaluates their experience and ability to overcome various obstacles that may arise over the course of a race. The game itself will determine if the racing options and driving aid you have selected are set with the difficulty levels that best suit you. The game will then give you the right hints on the most appropriate actions, allowing you to optimally adjust your driving style.
For those who are looking for a true next generation experience, here’s what the game has to offer:
A level of realism never seen before: new face animations, improved 3D characters and pits
Ride Height Device: players will be able to manually manage the locking mechanism of the RHD and control the compression of the bike’s suspensions
Enhanced tracks: surfaces have been improved to have a better rideability
Improved Suspension system: refined for a better feeling when passing over curbs
Tires and Brakes temperatures: are now affected by the slipstream, both for players and AI
Tire deformation: a more realistic tire behavior making the experience even closer to reality
Bigger, sharper, faster!
