Milestone and Feld Entertainment have officially revealed Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame 2 for release next year. Just like its predecessor, the game will be arriving on Switch.
This new edition puts players at the centre of the sport, expanding upon the original game with a renewed career mode (where players can experience training, interviews, and promotional activities), an enhanced track editor, additional training compounds, and improved playability. You can get all the details on these aspects with this feature list below:
- A new “career” mode. To become a real professional racer, being fast on the track is not enough, you must increase your fame and conquer fans’ hearts to attract the biggest sponsors, while managing media relations and rivalries with other racers. New features include an agenda full of events and activities to improve your racing skills on four new tracks. The life of a real Supercross Champion isn’t just at the races!
- Your face, your style, your track. Every rider has their own style, both on and off the track. That’s why customization reaches a new level in Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame 2. Players will be able to make their racer unique, thanks to more than 3,000 customizable items, from physical appearance to the long list of accessories to wear during races. On the track, there are more than 300 customisable mechanical parts to always find the right feeling with the bike. The highly-appreciated Track Editor returns, enhanced with a lot of new features for players to create their own track to challenge and share online with the community.
- Challenge the top athletes from the 2018 season. There are more than 80 official racers from the 2018 season with some of the most famous such as reigning 450SX Class champion, Jason Anderson, and Marvin Musquin and, for the first time making his appearance in the videogame, Eli Tomac; all of the riders have been accurately reproduced, thanks to a renewed face scanning technology. The 17 tracks available at launch, including the new NRG and Raymond James stadiums, fully recreate the innovative track designs and incredible atmosphere of a Supercross race, including its renowned fireworks and TV-styled replay cameras set inside the most recognizable and prestigious stadiums in America.
When the original game landed on Switch earlier this year, we were impressed with several aspects - including the realistic feel to the sport and the impressive graphical representation it received - but couldn't help but feel shortchanged with the numerous features that missed Nintendo's console. Other versions benefitted from a track editor, 22 racers on track instead of just 12, and multiplayer - all of which were skipped on Switch. Hopefully, this time around will see any extras included.
The game is set to be available on Switch on 8th February 2019.
