Kylotonn Games has released the first official gameplay video from the upcoming motorcycle racer, TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge. The footage is commentated by John McGuinness, the most successful active driver in Tourist Trophy history.

John McGuinness, more often known as the ‘Morecambe Missile,’ is a veritable legend of street motorcycle racing. He has proven himself many times in grand competitions such as the North West 200 or the Macau Grand Prix, and is above all, a specialist of the Tourist Trophy, where he's racked up an incredible 23 victories.

The footage from TT Isle of Man is all commentated by this legendary driver, who says he was “stupefied by the realism of the game.” He also said that he felt the same adrenaline rush as when he's riding his bike through the tracks of the Isle of Man.

McGuinness also points out that every detail is faithfully reproduced in the game: the walls, the crowd, even the advertisements. Developer Kylotonn Games says it has done everything possible to “completely immerse you in this mythic course.”

TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge features a “faithful reproduction” of the 37.73 miles and 264 bends of the Snaefell Mountain course, which offers a race more longer and more difficult that all GP circuits combined. The game also includes nine fantasy tracks for players to practise on before facing the major Tourist Trophy race itself. There’s also 23 riders and 40 official motorbikes, as well as online support for up to eight players.

Kylotonn Games has also created a Career Mode within TT Isle of Man which allows players to unlock new motorbikes and work their way to winning the legendary Isle of Man Tourist Trophy.

 

TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge will be available in March 2018 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It will also take advantage of Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro, with 4K resolution support having been already confirmed for Microsoft’s latest console. The system requirements for PC users can be found on Steam.
