Our first detailed look at the upcoming TT Isle of Man Ride on the Edge 3 simulation is now available, thanks to raw gameplay footage released by publisher Nacon.
Developed by Nacon Studio Milan, who previously created RiMS Racing, the latest official TT game will include the full 1:1 scale Snaefell Mountain course and use the KT Engine for its technology base.
But, the new development team is looking to include lessons learnt from its previous motorcycle title. With that in mind, you can clearly see and hear the scraping of the rider’s knee sliders as in RiMS, and in the same way, perhaps a little too loud in the audio mix.
The engine noise is authentic but also has the slightly raspy, metallic, overtones of the 2021 release.
Based purely on this footage – which only covers the initial section of the track between Bray Hill and Ballacraine – it looks as if the motorcycle is slightly more pliant over smaller and sharper bumps than its 2020 predecessor.
The second TT Isle of Man Ride on the Edge title did replicate an insane sense of speed when riding with the helmet cam, which at this stage, seems to have been toned down a little for the upcoming third instalment.
The gameplay footage uses Davey Todd’s Milenco by Padgett’s Motorcycles Honda CBR1000RR‑R from the Batley-based squad. If you’d like to know more about the Yorkshire team, might I suggest the video below by Shane Byrne.
TT Isle of Man Ride on the Edge 3 is set to release in May 2023 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch, and will include a quasi-open-world mode alongside the official TT races.
