Over the past few months, Raceward and Nacon have slowly been releasing information about their upcoming Isle of Man TT game. For fans of the infamous bike race, it’s good news. TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge 3 is now officially available to play.
It is currently only open to those that pre-ordered the Racing Fan Edition of the game. The rest of players will be anxiously awaiting Thursday 11 May. This is when the game releases to the rest of the world. Here’s all you need to know about the game on release day.
What’s New in Ride on the Edge 3?
Whilst the franchise’s second iteration certainly caught fans’ eyes, this third release is a complete step up. After the previous title, development transitioned from Kylotonn to Raceward. This Milan-based team is responsible for none other than RiMS Racing, often dubbed the best bike game on the market.
Taking inspiration from RiMS, the new TT game is set to feature much more realistic handling physics. Throughout its teaser campaign, the developers were keen to point out the vast amount of work that has gone in to the title’s braking and cornering model. This, along with several new rider aids should allow for a more realistic and less frustrating experience compared to titles of old.
In fact, bike racers have always struggled to reach the same level of control as car racing games. However, when it comes to RiMS Racing, fans often praise the game’s much more responsive handling. This is certainly a good sign for TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge 3.
Elsewhere, a new mode dubbed Open Roads will allow players to freely explore much of the Isle of Man. An open world map encompassing the TT course and many service roads, those that have visited the island in the past should recognise many of the game’s streets. Throughout this free roam map, players will find challenges, races and events to take part in.
With both online and offline competition, this should keep racers busy until the real world TT. Riders like Lee Johnston and Davey Todd will head to the island when the event kicks off later this month.
Nacon and Raceward’s TT game is available to purchase for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series S and X. The premium Racing Fan Edition will give you early access to the title and provide you with John McGuinness’ 100th race suit. But, a standard version is also available on all stores.
