Dorna Sports release: MotoGP 22: The Official Game is back in 2022!
The new opus of this video game offers exclusive features, both for hardcore fans and for newcomers.
Milestone and Dorna Sports SL are proud to announce that MotoGP 22, the new installment of their famous video game, will be available on April 21, 2022 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and Steam.
And for the occasion, a new game mode has been integrated: the 2009 NINE Season, a fascinating way to relive one of MotoGP’s most incredible seasons. Narrated by acclaimed director Mark Neale, this documentary features over 50 minutes of original footage from the 2009 season mixed with real gameplay to create a fully immersive simulation experience. Players can follow in the footsteps of legendary pilots like Valentino Rossi, Dani Pedrosa, Casey Stoner and Jorge Lorenzo and take on breathtaking challenges in hopes of recreating these historic moments.
Finally, NINE Season 2009 reproduces the 17 Grand Prix of this campaign, divided into different chapters, for a total of more than 39 challenges!
The 2022 edition is also enriched with new features dedicated to both beginners and experts: the improved Tutorial and the MotoGP Academy. Through these two tailor-made modes, players have the option to perfect their knowledge of motorcycling or learn the basics to begin their ascent to the highest level.
The tutorial features a series of dedicated sessions to help beginners understand how the game works through specific challenges focused on electronics, tire wear, brake temperature, and the fundamental differences between the three categories.
MotoGP Academy shows you how to improve your riding style to be unbeatable on every circuit and reveals the secrets of every corner.
In addition, an analysis system helps players through pop-up messages that appear at the end of the race, suggesting how to adjust the difficulty level based on skill and performance. The game may therefore recommend activating certain aids or suggest practicing in the tutorials specifically designed to fill in these knowledge gaps related to gameplay.
The manager career is back. This allows participants to create a new team or join an existing one. This game mode also offers the possibility of delving into the details of the strategic order, relying on development points, hiring staff specialized in this field and at the same time working on the development of the bike, whether at the level of the engine, frame or aerodynamics or the electronics. You can also start your journey at the bottom of the ladder, with a Moto2 or Moto3 structure, choose a sponsor, hire a team manager, technical director and even a rider.
At the same time, MotoGP 22 achieves unprecedented realism: a next-generation experience that blurs the lines between video games and reality.
· An unprecedented level of realism: improved boxes and characters with faces decorated with new animations.
· Ride Height Device: Players can manually manage the locking mechanism and control the compression of the suspensions.

And for the first time ever, MotoGP 22 will feature the highly-anticipated two-player “local split-screen”*, online multiplayer* and cross-play across consoles within the same family.
MotoGP22 will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5**, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S**, Nintendo Switch and Steam.
