Macroids reveals ‘Moto Racer 4’ with Playstation VR compatbility

Paris, France – June 9 2016

Microids today announced that its upcoming motorbike racing game, Moto Racer 4, will be compatible with the PlayStation® VR virtual reality headset from Sony, allowing PlayStation racers to take to road and dirt tracks in immersive virtual reality. In a first teaser video, the game can be seen in action, showing the game’s stunning graphical quality using Unreal Engine 4 with single and multiplayer racing modes on both road and dirt tracks. The return of the cult arcade motorbike racing series that has sold over seven million units worldwide is set for October 13, 2016, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac.

Developed by Microids and Artefacts Studio under the supervision of original creator Paul Cuisset, Moto Racer 4 revives the winning formula that made the original trilogy so successful. Accessible and entertaining with the ability to race dirty by shoving opponents, the two-wheel racing game alternates between high-speed road and dirt motocross courses. Players with a PlayStation VR headset (available in October 2016) can immerse themselves in the game using the special VR features and experience videogame racing like never before.

With over seven million units sold and critical acclaim both in the specialist press and among gamers, the original “Moto Racer” trilogy has left an indelible mark on the history of video games. Developed by Delphine Software, one of the great studios of the 1990s and 2000s, it is still synonymous with extreme gaming pleasure and fierce multiplayer contests for many players.
