MotoGP 18 enters the world of SWITCH

The world of MotoGP, specifically the 2018 version of it, which was recently announced and released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam, would be, for the first time, available for Nintendo fans using their Switches.

MotoGP 18, which was released back in the first week of June, follows the player in his/her journey to be the star of the 2018 MotoGP season.  Pursue your career as a professional rider starting from the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup up to the Premier class of the MotoGP. The game play for the Switch can be seen below

The game, which is the same on all consoles is a bump up from the previous renditions, both in terms of Graphics Performance and the Physics of the game.

Graphically, the game is architectured on the Unreal 4 engine, the game brings in 3D scanned faces of all the riders in the circuit and franchise. Along with that drone scanning, they have managed to recreate all the tracks with the rights corners and turns, marking unprecedented realism. As far as the physics of the game is concerned, the new AI collision system makes the player face smart opponents that will exploit their weaknesses, such as the performance decrease of your bike at each collision. With each and every collision, a decrease in performance becomes quite apparent, allowing for a real world experience. It also allows one to C=choose the right tyres, and ride considering their temperature and consumption.

The game offers both single and multiplayer game modes.
