Milestone's MotoGP franchise has been at it for more than a decade and this year's iteration, MotoGP 18, is set for release worldwide next month. Any longtime fans of the series would do themselves a favor picking it up right away because, in July, the MotoGP eSport Championship starts anew and players can win their way into the tournament.
MotoGP 18 is the latest entry in the series and it brings with it the Unreal Engine 4, something that is becoming the standard for Milestone games. The engine is allowing the developer to further refine the niche series with better graphics, more realistic damage, and authentic looking tracks, including the Buriram International Circuit in Thailand, which makes its debut in 18.
If players feel confident in their skills on a crotch rocket, beginning July 18, there will be a set of four challenges they can compete in. The 12 fastest racers from around the world will be invited to compete in Italy as part of the Championship semi-finals. Players who make it to the grand finals will have a chance to win themselves a BMW M240i Coupe.
