MotoGP™ World Championship Quest will be released worldwide January 3rd, 2016.
The best news for fans of MotoGP™ and racing in general, is that the new game will be free to download and play. It also presents a seismic shift in thinking from other motorcycle mobile racing games. We Play Media based in Phoenix, Arizona, have taken decades of racing game development and focused that on producing a casual, fun and compelling mobile gaming experience.
Co-Founder of the company Graeme Warring said “When we took on the challenge of producing a game for the fans of MotoGP™ we did so for all the fans, not just the hard core gamers amongst them. By making the game free to play we knew we would reach a really broad audience and so we needed to ensure that the racing experience would be fun for everyone that picked up the game.”
The game will initially feature all 2015 season MotoGP riders, five Grand Prix circuits and then new ones will be added each month. As the 2016 series commences, new track releases will coincide with the respective Grand Prix’s giving fans something new to look forward to each month. “Mobile content delivery has been a game changer” said Warring. “It allows us to update the riders and bikes as there are changes either at the beginning of the season or mid season and it enables us to deliver new content to the fans on a regular basis.”
“The other key feature we bought to this game is a very direct connection from the fans to their favorite MotoGP™ rider” said Warring. The Fan World Championship™ aggregates the collective scores of the MotoGP™ racers fans and produces a result which is reflective of the fans efforts, and not the popularity of the racer. “We didn’t want the Fan World Championship™ to be a popularity contest because if it were, the riders leading the live championship would win every week, instead we wanted to make it about the fans contribution to their rider, effectively democratizing the MotoGP™ field and focusing on fan engagement”
Each week a Fan World Championship™ podium will be decided and the racer with the highest average fan score will win that round, the fan who contributed the most points to that rider will win that round of the Fan World Championship™ and a beautiful trophy promptly shipped to the first, second and third place getters along with t-shirts and other swag.
Pau Serracanta, Managing Director at Dorna Sports S.L. said “We are really excited to introduce this game to the fans of MotoGP™, we are very proud of the quality of the game and most importantly we are looking forward to seeing the fan engagement with the riders through the Fan World Championship™. The global appeal of MotoGP™ means that millions of fans around the world follow the championship and this game will give them the opportunity to really connect with the sport and their favorite rider."
