As we gear up for the imminent launch of MotoGP 21 next week, developer Milestone has revealed that a new circuit is coming to the game.
The Algarve International Circuit in Portugal was a last-minute addition to the real-life MotoGP championship in 2020 thanks to Coivd-19 related calendar shuffles. Consequently, it didn’t feature in the MotoGP 20 game.
Now though, the venue will feature in the latest official release, as it does in this season’s Grand Prix calendar.
The circuit also features in the Italian team’s Ride 4 game, which released in 2020 on last-gen consoles and earlier this year on for PS5 and Xbox Series. Handy, that.
In the MotoGP 21 though, you will be using a slightly different layout as in Ride 4, taking the earlier and tighter Torre Vip instead of turn five, which is further down the hill. That means the braking zone is over a blind crest – if there weren’t enough of those on this track already.
Alongside this new location, MotoGP 21 features several new enhancements. Riders now how to consider brake temperature management, the long lap penalty system is now implemented for false starts or track limit violations, and it will be coming to the latest consoles which means 60 fps, 4K and rapid loading times.
We’ll be back with more on MotoGP 21 soon as the 22nd August fast approaches.
