The Tutorial features a series of dedicated gameplay sessions, helping newcomers to understand the basics of the game through specific challenges focused on electronics, tire consumption, brake temperature, and core differences between the three main categories.
The MotoGP Academy teaches you how to improve your riding style to be unbeatable on every track, uncovering the secrets to facing all the curves and the hardest trajectories.
Additionally, the Riding Analysis System helps riders through in-game pop-up messages that appear at the end of the race suggesting how to adjust the difficulty level based on skills and performances. The game could recommend activating some help or suggest playing specific tutorials designed to fill gaps in terms of gameplay knowledge and attitudes.
The Managerial Career is back and allows players to decide whether to create a new team or join a real one. The game mode also features the possibility to go in-depth in the strategy’s details, using development points and allocating R&D staff to reach the top along with working on the Bike Development through enhancing aspects such as Engine, Frame, Aerodynamics, and Electronics. The path could start from the bottom, creating a Junior Team in Moto2 or Moto3 categories, selecting a sponsor, and hiring a Team Manager, Technical Director, and at least one rider.
