Tourist trophy

Following the closure of previous developer Monumental Games, Milestone has announced that it’s taken the handlebars of the official MotoGP license, announcing MotoGP 13 for PlayStation 3 and Vita. The title's set to release at some point in June.

The Italian outfit promises to have “re-invented” the franchise, with new physics and re-designed visuals top of the list. A refreshed career mode will "bring players into the 2013 championship through the eyes of a real MotoGP rider" courtesy of an interesting blend of “third and first person elements”. Meanwhile, multiplayer will apparently “re-create exciting events”.

There’s an announcement trailer embedded below, but it doesn’t really reveal a whole lot to be honest. It’s set to be a busy year for Milestone, though, who is also working on the isometric PlayStation Network racer, WRC Powerslide.
