Milan, 26th April 2012 - Black Bean Games and Milestone have today released the latest development diary episode for their upcoming motocross racing title MUD FIM Motocross World Championship. The latest installment focuses on game play and game modes with a guest star: Italian rider Tony Cairoli who is a five time Motocross World Champion (MX1 and MX2) and currently a rider for the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team.
Tony Cairoli commented: I’m glad I got a chance to try MUD FIM Motocross World Championship for myself. It’s great fun and the only game to have the official license for the motocross world championship. You can choose all the riders from both MX1 and MX2 categories… Players are going to love it. Motocross for me means speed, mud and glory, the three words I tattooed on my back. I really enjoy finding these three features in MUD!”.” He continued, “An amazing feature of Milestone’s title is definitely the scrub. It's a typical Motocross maneuver and is used very often for overtaking by spending as short a time as possible in the air: try to complete the jump and land before your adversary. Being able to use the scrub makes the game very realistic, and I hope that many players have fun riding my virtual bike or one of their favourite champions!”
As the only Motocross game in the current season ,MUD FIM Motocross World Championship will deliver on launch day a package full of fun and adrenaline thanks to recreating the MX1 and MX2 championships, as well as the amazing Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations and The Monster Energy Trick Battle Mode. This brand new game features 14 different bikes, 84 riders (including stars such as Ryan Villopoto, Tony Cairoli, Chad Reed, Ryan Dungey and Ken Roczen) and 12 official tracks, as well as featuring a new game engine with fully deformable terrain conditions and a realistic MX handling model.
