Valentino Rossi: The Game Trailer Introduces Misano’s Rally, Drift Races

Milestone released a new trailer for Valentino Rossi: The Game, featuring the Misano flat track. The asphalt surface and wide turns make for a challenging track for the sports bikes, but very different kind of challenge for the rally cars.

Yes, Valentino Rossi: The Game will feature more than just different classes of motorcycles, there will also be rally challenges as well, where a co-pilot will direct the player through sharp turns, hairpins and chicanes.

You can check out the trailer below to see both the motorcycles and rally cars tearing up the asphalt at the Misano flat track.

The one thing that really impresses me is how many different racing disciplines are all contained within a single location. The sports, rally and even dirt bikes can take a spin around the track.

Luca Simonotti, the lead designer at Milestone, stated in the press release…

“Misano represents the Italian Speed Temple and the Hometown of Valentino Rossi. Since the beginning of his career Valentino Rosssi trained himself on all these disciplines like Flat Track, R1M, Drift, Rally and MotoGP to became the champion”

But then the whole thing takes a completely different spin when you add the drifting into the equation, where players will have to deal with the stiff traction of the asphalt and the loose gravel of the flat track, all in one race.

I originally wasn’t all that keen about Valentino Rossi: The Game. Milestone has a tendency of rushing racing titles out of the door. However, the physics in the game look pretty good to be a budget priced title, especially with the R1M bikes. Added to that, the smooth frame-rates and clean texture work really help bring the game’s visual atmosphere to life. Topping all of this off with a robust selection of varied racing types all jam packed into one game at least makes Valentino Rossi: The Game a content-rich experience even if the quality may not be up to par.

PQube Games and Milestone’s latest racing title is due for release on June 17th for the Xbox One and PS4. You can keep track of the game’s progress by hitting up the official Facebook page.
