Fans and followers of the sport will also be delighted to see their motocross heroes surge across the tracks on-screen as MUD – FIM Motocross World Championship features a full roster of all the teams and world-renown bikers on the motocross racing circuit, including top ranked U.S. supercross champion Ryan Villopoto.
“Motocross is a heart-pounding, adrenaline-pumping sport that involves incredible finesse as well as physicality,” says Villopoto. “This game will be a great opportunity for gamers and motocross fans to immerse themselves into the extreme sports world by racing through intensely rugged terrain and pulling off high-flying tricks.”
In MUD – FIM Motocross World Championship motocross fans will get more than just their hands dirty as they must use their guts and guile on the track during races, elimination gauntlets and head-to-head showdowns. Every bike produces different rips as they tear through the mud tracks, creating dynamic terrain deformation. Players can also take to the air and perform jaw-dropping stunts and tricks in the “Monster Energy Trick Battle Mode,” which offers 30 different tricks in three spectacular arenas. Players can also unlock more challenging events and spend their winnings on unlocking new tricks, better teams, or snazzier gear to deck-out their lean, mean two-wheeled machines.
To coincide with the lead-up to the game’s launch date, NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. will hold a “RV2 Experience” contest to make one fan’s dream of meeting Ryan Villopoto come true. One lucky winner will be a VIP at one of the motocross events, watch the races that day, and join Villopoto for photos to commemorate their special day.
