Leading videogame publisher Capcom has confirmed the latest evolution of its successful MotoGP franchise will be launched in March for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
MotoGP 10/11, developed by Monumental Games, will deliver all the content from the 2010 MotoGP season from launch.
However, a key feature to this year's game will be the option to download updates for the 2011 MotoGP World Championship shortly after the season starts, to take advantage of several high-profile changes to the grid.
An all-new handling system and improved physics will deliver authenticity that hasn't been experienced before in the MotoGP series, which was assumed by Capcom in 2007.
The inclusion of the brand new customisable player assist feature allows fans of both simulation and arcade racing to alter their racing style.
Those wanting to take less of a risk with their riding technique will be able to switch on the player assist for a more forgiving style of racing. For players who want to feel the full intensity of MotoGP racing, all the in-game player assist can be switched off, delivering challenging and realistic gameplay that emulates the MotoGP experience.
“MotoGP 10/11 will offer gamers the most true-to-life gameplay of the series so far” commented Michael Pattison, Senior Vice President Marketing of Capcom. “We hope that fans will be pleased with the improvements made to next year's title, allowing gamers to adapt their playing experience to suit their individual racing style”.
Monumental Games are dedicated to enhancing the core features of last year's title. 'Career' mode will be complemented by the addition of brand new co-op play. Through local split-screen gameplay, a second player can jump into the race and become a team-mate, helping to take your team to pole position.
The classic 'Championship' and 'Time Trial' modes are back, along with a revised 'Challenge' mode. This year, fans of MotoGP will be able to play as their racing hero from the start in all three of these game modes.
As with MotoGP 09/10, MotoGP 10/11 will continue to offer the most robust online mode in a racing title, allowing up to 20 players to compete in a championship race. Gamers can choose their racing settings and join in mid-race with spectator mode to check out the competition before the race starts.
