Very little has been revealed about Moto Racer 4
, barring the release of a few screenshots late last year
. That's changed at least a little now, with publisher Microïds announcing some details about the upcoming game.
First up a few more screenshots. As the screenshots themselves state, the game is still a work in progress, so what are contained within those screenshots are subject to change.
Next, there was the announcement that there will be at least 15 game modes spanning single and multiplayer. As well as a few that would be expected - Single Race, Time Trial and Championship - a few different modes have been announced.
KING OF THE HILL: Each rider starts with the same time on the clock. While time runs down for the leader, the other racers get extra turbo. The first player to get their counter down to zero wins the race.
LAST MAN STANDING: The last player to pass each checkpoint is eliminated.
SURVIVAL: The race starts with very little time on the clock. Players gain time by passing the checkpoints. In single-player mode, the aim is to survive for a specific length of time. In multi-player mode, the winner is the last player with time left on their clock.
CATCH-UP: The player's opponents begin the race with a headstart and the player must be in first place at a specific time.
WOLF PACK: The player begins the race with a headstart and must maintain it for a certain length of time without being overtaken.
GHOST BIKE: The player starts the race in last place and is not allowed to deviate from the road or collide with others. S/he must finish in a specified minimum place.
GOLDEN HELMET: Competitors must earn the one golden helmet up for grabs during the race. To do this, they must be first past the initial checkpoint. If the player wearing the golden helmet is knocked by another player, s/he surrenders it to that player. If a player falls off their bike, s/he loses the helmet and it is automatically sent to the next checkpoint.
Finally, a release date was also announced. Moto Racer 4
will speed onto Xbox One on October 13th.
