Posted in Game Releases, OnLive 2013 on June 21, 2013 by Kevin Keating


Twist the throttle on MotoGP13 and rev your adrenaline into the red! From the second you dump the clutch in motorbike racing, physics becomes your nemesis as you coax a 200+mph machine into corner after corner, shifting your bodyweight and fighting the front wheel’s urge to go airborne. Every essence of this insanely fast sport is captured by Milestone Studios, the developer of MotoGP13.

If you’ve never experienced MotoGP, there are three basic categories: MotoGP is for bikes up to 1000cc, Moto2™ has an official 600cc engine supplied by Honda, and Moto3™ includes bikes with single-bore 4-stroke engines up to 250cc. As the official videogame, MotoGP13 brings to life all the tracks, riders and unforgettable exhilaration of the 2013 MotoGP season in a race experience unlike anything you’ve encountered before.

With OnLive, you can drop into the action whenever and wherever you are, on PC, Mac, Android tablet and the big screen of your TV. Pick it up as an individual purchase for $39.99/£29.99/39,99€ or as part of the PlayPack monthly subscription package, and get unlimited access to more than 250 console-class games at an incredible value.

Graphically the game is photo-perfect, capturing in glorious detail each of the riders, the bikes and the tracks – including a brand new track, Circuit Of The Americas, the first purpose-built Grand Prix facility in the U.S., near Austin, Texas. This impressive 3.43-mile track completed in 2012 has a total of 20 corners and a 41-meter elevation change, ending with an exciting incline on the home straight.

Scalable rider aids mean you can play the game from arcade-style right up to full simulation for the ultimate rush, and a new career mode with first-person elements, like 3D pits and helmet views, takes the realism up a gear lap after lap.

Special attention has also been placed on the inevitable-but-spectacular crashes in game, making for great Brag Clip™ videos. Milestone used a professional stunt rider and purpose-built rig to motion capture in superb detail every millisecond of when rider and bike part company.

In short, if you are looking for a thrill ride you have to try out MotoGP13.
