Monster Energy Supercross 3: Time To Get Our Bikes Dirty Again [VIDEO]

The now THQ Nordic-owned Milestone is coming back to the American supercross series with Monster Energy Supercross 3.

The game „will feature the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross season with 100 riders from both the 450SX and 250SX Classes,  15 official stadiums and tracks. For the very first time in the series, it will also allow players to choose between a sponsor team or an Official Supercross Team of the 2019 Championship in Career Mode: players will finally have the chance to become a teammate of their favourite Supercross rider and show the whole world who’s the king of the track!”, the press release says.

There will also be a co-op mode „with 3 other friends, choosing different game modes in the replica of the legendary Factory Supercross Practice Tracks in California. A huge free-roaming area with 9 amazing tracks […]”, plus there will be a „brand new Online Multiplayer Mode, now boosted with Dedicated Servers for a lag-free gameplay experience, and Race Director Mode to create amazing online tournaments, deciding from the players’ starting positions to assigning penalties or choosing which  cameras to focus on. Championship, Quick Race or Elimination Mode, players can choose their favourite game mode, browsing through Public and Private Lobbies to find their right match.” (We wonder how many platforms will have those dedicated servers.) The track editor is coming back, after more than 53 thousand tracks were made: „new modules and new stadium items to customize tracks in a unique way. Thanks to brand new aesthetic customization items, such as Touch Block, Finish Gates or Leader Pillars, players can now enhance the realism and immersion of their custom tracks.”

Let’s see the technicalities: „Rider and secondary character models have been completely re-made from scratch with photo scanning that now features a new set of animations. The new model system allowed us to add for the first time, a Female Rider model with its own animations and physics. Players can select a Female Custom Rider amongst different models to be the next Supercross Champion. Tracks are more alive, thanks to revised particles of fireworks, flames, dry and wet ground that are more detailed and realistic. On the gameplay side, physics has been completely revised to be adapted to the new riders’ animations and a new in-air bike control system has been implemented to improve bike handling during jumps.”

Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 3 will launch on February 4 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and PC (Steam).
