Bigben and KT Racing have released a brand new trailer for the upcoming TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2, the new racer coming to Switch and other platforms in Q1 2020.
The video shows off all the technical improvements added to this sequel, and also reveals that you’ll be able to race around the world’s longest and most challenging circuit. How the Switch version will fare in comparison to other platforms remains to be seen – the original faced several unsurprising visual downgrades – but the new game is promising a huge open world to explore and new physics to “increase realism and game experience”, such as a fully integrated gyroscopic effect for more precise and natural steering.
Here are some more details:
The bike physics have been rebuilt from the ground up to create ultra-realistic behaviour. The gyroscopic effect is now completely integrated for more precise steering, and speed wobbles have been added to alert riders that a fall could be imminent. The brakes and shock absorbers have also been redesigned. They now respond to all bumps in the road and create a riding experience that is much more faithful to what a real motorcyclist feels.
From the handlebars of your bike, shave valuable seconds off your time by using your opponent’s slipstream to pick up speed, and find the best line in bends to maximize your bike’s grip. Managing wear and tear of parts is also part of the game experience: the brakes, suspensions, engine and tyre temperature all need to be monitored for the best ride and to reach the finish line of the 60km circuit, especially if you complete all six laps of the race!
