Bridgestone, the world’s largest tyre and rubber company, today announces a partnership with Italian game developer, Milestone, on the latest installment of the popular RIDE videogame series, RIDE 4.
RIDE 4, the ultimate competitive gaming experience for two wheel enthusiasts, will launch worldwide on October 8th 2020 on Playstation 4, XBOX One and PC.
Through this partnership, Bridgestone aims to solidify its position as a market leader for motorbike tyres, as well as showcase its products and legacy in the competitive racing world – and all in innovative and engaging way for motorbike and videogame lovers worldwide.
In RIDE 4, riders from every corner of the globe will have the chance to experience a smooth and fast ride with Bridgestone tyres on 34 accurately reproduced virtual tracks, just like they would do in reality. The game includes a vast array of Bridgestone motorcycle tyres, which can be mounted on over 250 bike models from 22 different manufacturers.
Bridgestone brand will also be featured digitally within the game, with sponsored suits and gear, billboards on racing tracks as well as dedicated game modes.
Over the years, Bridgestone has built its legacy and excellence in motorbike racing, recently achieving victories in the most celebrated endurance competitions.
Endurance World, a brand-new game mode dedicated to distance motorcycle races, will be one of the key features in RIDE 4. In this mode, riders can test their driving ability and focus, and really asses the exceptional performance and durability of their Bridgestone tyres.
Just as in real life, tyre wear remains one of the most important factors within the game when it comes to being a successful rider, with performance being actively impacted by riding style and weather, and players having to make in-race strategic decisions to mitigate these factors.
“When we launched the RIDE franchise our main goal was to create a unique IP for all two-wheel lovers; today – five years later – the astonishing realism of its visuals, the depth of its gameplay and this great partnership with Bridgestone, confirm we’ve worked in the right direction to create the ultimate two-wheel racing experience”, said Luisa Bixio, CEO of Milestone
