Driving capabilities will be a massive factor when it comes to Milestone's upcoming racer, RIDE
, but it's also important to look the part, too. In this huge bunch of screens, we get to see a fine choice of customising options from the bikers' helmet down to their boots, as well as the motorcycles themselves.
With over 100 items available to choose for males and females and 20 bike upgrade packs, there will be plenty to choose from to style your "RIDE-AVATAR".
Players will need to choose the gender of their Rider and then their haircut as well as racing gear for the passionate, expert-looking rider, to the casual riders who may be more comfy in "jeans and a t-shirt".Choose your favourite clothing from a wide selection of items, including: Helmets, Visors, Suits, Boots, Gloves, Jeans, and Jackets, all officially licensed gear*. Impress other riders with your style, and blow your friends away by recreating your real motorcycle gear in-game and then beating them to the finish line.
The bike upgrade packs will do more than just boost the look of your favourite ride. Packs will allow players to upgrade the "engine, transmission, brake system, suspension system, wheels," and plenty more. The changes you make don't just alter the bike's appearance, they influence the bike's performance on the track, and in some cases - such as the exhaust system - the sound of your bike as you roar around the track. In order to maintain the high level of realism the changes and customisable features available reflect each individual manufacturer's official options.
All of the different accessories for customizing will be available straight from the start of the game. Players can unlock by earning credits and use them through the different game modes available online and offline. The customizing even goes as far as being able to edit the rider's position on the bike!Recreate your own real riding style down to the last detail through a series of indicators - lateral and frontal head angle, shoulder position, seat position, inside knee position and so on - and then capture those magic moments with the Photo Mode, to share images of your avatar in action with your friends, and your rivals.RIDE
makes its way to the Xbox One and Xbox 360 on March 20th.
