With MotoGP retaining a loyal fanbase every year, Capcom is enhancing the series’ core features for the 10/11 edition.
The sport’s officially licensed game has faithful recreations of the bikes along with a complete roster including champions Lorenzo, Rossi and Stoner.
Out of the box MotoGP 10/11 is up-to-date with the last year, but DLC will fill the gap, updating the game to reflect the 2011 season.
Dedicated fans can work through a comprehensive Career mode – now with split-screen co-op – while the more competitive gamers will no doubt enjoy the 20-player online mode.
“MotoGP sales have been consistent throughout its three iterations under Capcom,” says UK product and community manager Karl Reader.
“We have an extensive core of dedicated fans who have worked alongside the development team to make 10/11 as accessible as possible without detracting from the authenticity and realism that is the core of this year’s focus.
“2011 will see a new approach to the MotoGP marketing campaign, focusing on PR, community and events. We have a strong grasp of our target market in these areas which ensures we gain maximum reach exposure.”
The publisher will be running sampling opportunites at the British MotoGP and Formula One at Silverstone.
Partnerships have also been secured with some of the sport’s biggest sponsers, Monster Energy and Tissot Watches. These deals include additional sampling at major events throughout Europe.
MotoGP 10/11 arrives on March 18th – just in time for the new MotoGP season, which starts on March 20th in Qatar.
