Milestone today announces MotoGP™19’s new Multiplayer mode, now featuring important improvements both on technical infrastructure and gameplay experience. Developers worked hard to implement technologies that create a more stable and reliable online experience, and enrich gameplay with new features giving players an even more immersive racing experience.
MotoGP™19 will be available on June 6th on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Windows PC®/STEAM. It will be released on Nintendo Switch™ on June 27th*.
Dedicated Servers powered by Amazon GameLift
The first step to improving the Multiplayer experience in MotoGP™19 has been to adopt, for the first time in a Milestone game, Dedicated Servers to host online matches. As with every Multiplayer game network infrastructure is crucial to guarantee the reliability and stability needed for online gameplay. Dedicated Servers allow for gameplay with very low latency, for smoother and lag-free races.
Public Lobbies, Private Lobbies and Race Director Mode
In MotoGP™19 players can browse the Public Lobbies list to find the race that meets their needs, or, thanks to Private Lobbies, they can create their own fully customizable Grand Prix to race with only their friends.
Together with Private Lobbies, Milestone introduced for the first time in the series, the Race Director Mode, that enables players to manage every feature during online competition. Race Director can set race sessions and decide weather conditions on track. During the race he can assign penalties for riders’ irregular behaviors, just like in a real MotoGP™ race. Thanks to the TV Director mode, players can also manage cameras and overlays, to capture the most breathtaking actions to be included in livestreams.
All of the new features included in the MotoGP™19’s Multiplayer mode came highly requested from fans of the series, once again highlighting the great importance of community feedback in the development of the game.
And don't forget it, MotoGP™19 will be available on June 6th on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Windows PC®/STEAM. It will be released on Nintendo Switch™ on June 27th*.
