“Milestone has developed a game that brings together the fun and experiences of motocross, with the realism of licensed content, to create something very special.”
PQube also said in a statement that distributing MUD in the UK and Ireland is “the first step in developing a longer term relationship with Milestone, to support its UK business”.
Milestone sales and marketing director Luisa Bixio added: “We are delighted with the agreement made with PQube.
“PQube has a very experienced management and we’re sure it will give the right focus to MUD.”
