Begin dit jaar werd Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame uitgebracht door Milestone. De game werd redelijk ontvangen, zo ook in onze review. Milestone heeft nu bekendgemaakt dat de studio aan een vervolg werkt.

Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 2 bevat een carrièremodus die is uitgebreid ten opzichte van het eerste deel. In de nieuwe game moeten spelers zich ook buiten de races om bewijzen, door zich bezig te houden met fans, sponsoren en media. Ook belooft Milestone meer mogelijkheden voor customization, met meer dan 3000 items om je eigen coureur mee te personaliseren en ruim 300 onderdelen in de terugkerende Track Editor. Het nieuwe deel bevat weer de officiële licenties van de sport en de besturing is verbeterd voor meer realisme.

Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 2 komt op 8 februari 2019 uit voor onder andere de PlayStation 4. Check de aankondigingstrailer hieronder, evenals een overzicht met de belangrijkste features van de game.
