When we started brainstorming the game design ride 5Creating the career mode was one of the most important moments. It’s not easy to create a video game that will satisfy all the potential riders who get on our bikes. Whether a beginner or an experienced gamer, everyone should have fun and find something that fulfills them and offers the right level of challenge. The game also needs to be able to reward the time invested in it for both those who put in a lot of time and those who take it casually and enjoy a few hours a week.

Now that ride 5 is in an advanced stage of development and looking at the career mode I believe the above requirements have been met. In fact, the game offers two paths: the main path, the Tour, is divided into four acts with events ranging from championships to different types of competitions such as individual races or time trials. The optional part, the Limitless Challenges, offers four acts, each of which can be unlocked by completing the corresponding main act, and have a higher level of difficulty.

In career mode, it’s not necessary to win every race to finish groups; it is sufficient to achieve a minimum score. It is quite low at first, but it progressively increases as players advance in the game. In Limitless Challenges, on the other hand, there is no exceeding threshold, only a completion threshold: in other words: in order to complete them, all races must be won!

The adaptability of ride 5 The alignment with player inclinations is therefore evident and is also reflected in the qualifications, which can be time-based or based on a single round. The former equates to a looser (and more standard) approach, while the latter presents a tougher experience, as there’s only one lap to determine race placement. Therefore, players must be able to do their best right away while bearing in mind that going off track will result in penalties.

Another challenge that we wanted to face during the conception ride 5 was longevity. As opposed to yearly releases, we wanted to give virtual bikers an experience that can keep them entertained for years to come. The Race Creator is a highly customizable tool that allows players to create their own races. You have control over various aspects including the logo, competition name and format (single event or championship), as well as driving aids, competition type, number of drivers, number of events, scores and more. This level of customization extends to the AI-managed riders, where players can personalize their bikes, suits and even choose their opponents in minute detail, setting a new standard in Milestone’s games.

Among the races to be won there will also be endurance races. Their duration can be set from a minimum of 20 minutes to a maximum of 24 hours, recreating some of the most famous races such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Winning each race group rewards players with credits, experience, and unique bikes. However, endurance races played in Race Creator only reward players with credits and experience.

Speaking of rewards: ride 5Career mode rewards players with powerful bikes at the end of each race group. They serve as prizes and are crucial for overcoming future challenges. They make sure the riders always have the right bike for the competition. This means players have the freedom to spend their balance as they please. They can buy better bikes than the ones they won, upgrade their existing ones via the customization system, or treat themselves to cosmetic purchases for their riders’ clothes. In case players mismanage their money, they can still compete with a free bike rental. However, the credits earned at the end of the race will be reduced.

Winning a competition only brings satisfaction if the opponent is a worthy opponent, and that’s why career mode exists ride 5 introduces rivals, opponents with unique backgrounds and special cutscenes and voiceovers. Each rival has their own outfit, favoring track, bike and manufacturer. For example, Charles Nolan rides a 2005 Suzuki GSX-R 600 that players can win by defeating him. Rivals show greater aggressiveness, are the best drivers in the game and rise in the rankings to intersect with the player’s career at crucial moments and become recurring antagonists.

The effort of the players in ride 5 are rewarded not only with bikes, credits and points, but also with the development of their headquarters, which changes depending on their position in the world rankings. It will feature three different environments of increasing beauty, symbolizing the path to becoming a top rider. Over time, the scenarios become more prestigious and new team members are added. In addition, players start their journey with a pickup truck and eventually transfer to a van, ending up in a fully equipped truck!

But how long will the career last? For just the four acts of the Tour, without completing all the races but simply hitting the event’s overrun thresholds, players can expect around 17 hours of gameplay. However, all events in the four acts of the tour will take approximately 30 hours to complete. For completers who engage with the additional content of Limitless Challenges, the fun is extended by an additional 20 hours, for a total of 50 hours of gameplay.
