There’s was a happy sigh from MotoGP fans when The Doctor was revealed to be the face and, indeed, name of the next officially licensed MotoGP title. Valentino Rossi has been one of the names, faces and characters of the sport. It’s fitting that the multiple MotoGP World champion has his own game title.
Love him or hate him, he’s one of the most successful motorcycle racers of all time. Publisher PQube have taken developer, Milestone’s new two-wheel tearaway title and revealed the MotoRanch VR46. This allows you to take part in the engaging Flat Track races and experience the adrenaline of the Americana and be part of the most exclusive event of year, called EnduRanch.
This revelation comes in the form of the new trailer, below. It features the Tavullia hills and valleys, surrounded by a suggestive and naturalistic environment. This is the frame for the exclusive MotoRanch VR46, which will open it’s doors for the first time when the game is released.
The MotoRanch represents a training field for Valentino Rossi and the VR46 Riders Academy and consists of different circuits. These circuits allow you to practice one of the most engaging disciplines; Flat Track. On a circuit specifically created for this, 12 riders challenge on their two-wheeled chargers. This will include the Flat Track Bike, specifically for this circuit. Using a technique which involves drifting with a foot outside to balance the weight, Flat Track seems on the surface to be a mixture of Motocross and Supermotard. The surface makes it just that little bit more different though.
The weather will also play a part in the riding style, with spring and autumn playing a part in deciding the outcome of the race.
MotoRanch will allow you to ride in four different competitions. Dritta, Alla Rovescia, EnduRanch and Americana. These all offer differing weather conditions, coupled with daytime and twilight riding to provide an extra challenge.
The MotoRanch VR46 will also feature “Valentino’s friends”. These are all riders on the racing circuit and will feature; Tony Cairoli, Alberto Tebaldi, Mauro Sanchini, Thomas Chareyre, Marco Belli, and British favourite, Guy Martin among many others.
Have a look at the MotoRanch VR46 trailer below for a little further information. Valentino Rossi The Game is scheduled for release on the 16th of June.
