Take to the tarmac or dirt track in Moto Racer 4. It’s all the fun of motorcycle riding, without the risk of leather sweats, gravel burns and ultimately, death.
Don’t you hate it when you have to choose between a road bike and a dirt bike? No? Me neither, but it’s hard to argue that being given a choice is always a positive thing. In Moto Racer 4, the first entry in the venerable two-wheeled series since 2001, you get to do it both ways.
Moto Racer 4 has been developed by Microïds and Artefacts Studio, but the project has been overseen by legendary French developer Paul Cuisset. Who’s he? Cuisset was studio lead for Delphine Software International, the studio behind the incredible Flashback, Future Wars, and of course the original Moto Racer games. Oh, and Shaq Fu – nobody’s perfect.
So the game has got some heritage behind it, and there’s no shortage of modes and features, including:
- The aforementioned road and dirt bike variations.
- Two-player split-screen.
- 10-player online multiplayer.
- Customisable bikes and riders.
- Traffic on the road and collisions with other riders.
- And the small matter of PlayStation VR support.
Moto Racer 4 is out now on PS4 (with PSVR support), Xbox One, PC and Mac. Start your engines.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
