Time flies, and there is no better example of that than the Milestone release schedule. Fresh from Ride 4 in October, MXGP in December, then next-gen versions of each in January and February respectively, we now have confirmation that Monster Energy AMA Supercross 4 FIM World Championship – The Official Video Game will release on 3rd March 2021 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, PC and Google Stadia. Phew!
As you can probably tell, this is the fourth instalment in the Monster Energy Supercross series, a yearly officially licenced sports franchise that replicates the real-world AMA Supercross championship. Similar in some ways to the MXGP series in so much as there are off-road motorcycles competing in races, but differentiated because this is arena-based and across the United States.
If you want to get a flavour for this form of motorsport, here are some short race-highlights.
Releasing a year after Supercross 3, the latest game promises to include an updated roster of riders, bikes and liveries alongside the following additions:
- Salt Lake City races
- Revised Career mode with a new skill tree and rivalries
- New open-world compound area
- Four-player co-op
- Improved track editor with new modules
- 60fps and dynamic 4K resolution on PS5 and Xbox Series X
