The first sign that the end of the world is upon us will be that Milestone will stop making games about motorbikes. It has three or four annual series, all concerned with racing on two wheels. Hot Wheels Unleashed was some sort of inexplicable anomaly, but hey, we're getting back on track now. The latest game from the studio is RIDE 5, which is set to arrive on 24th August 2023.
This new instalment in the RIDE franchise will be the first Milestone game on new-gen consoles only; in other words, it's coming to PS5, but not PS4. This will allow the team to delve into some high-end tech and produce a more realistic racing sim. The game will include a dynamic weather system, volumetric clouds, and improved bike physics "in every aspect".
RIDE 5 will feature a full career, with a narrator commentating on your progress as well as your standing against a total of 10 rival riders. It'll also have split-screen local multiplayer — back by popular demand — and cross-play between the console versions. Finally, the game will allow you to make custom race events and fully customise your motorbikes, suits, and helmets.

If this has a psvr2 mode it would be insane! Not sure my stomach would be able to handle it though!
It's really nice to see someone finally saying "New-gen" for the current gen. No sarcasm here.
My thoughts exactly, should be mandatory for racing games after how good GT7 is!! Really want Wreckfest in VR but that really would test the old VR legs! 😅
Lately, the only thing I think when I hear a game is current-gen only is that the development team had a hard time optimizing it for last-gen, and that means it’ll be 30fps. I know this has only been a few isolated cases so far, but it makes me worried that it might become a trend. I’d much rather a game be optimized for performance than graphics and resolution. Especially important with a racing game.
Very hyped for this one, with Ride 4 they finally managed to hit "GT of motorcycles" quality, and it's ironically better than GT7 in some ways such as how it's not a live services game. It's left me not only very satisfied with Ride 4, but excited to see what they can deliver next.
I mean there's a lot of motorcycle games out there these days, but ride is quickly becoming THE motorcycle series unless you're a motorsports fan of something like MotoGP and Monster Supercross. The depth here is just so much greater. To top it off I consider the dualsense feedback to be among the best on offer.
PSVR2 support, please. Please.
The handling of Ride 4 was atrocious — way too "realistic" and convoluted. Either simplify & streamline it, or yes, make it for PSVR2 w/ motion controllers.
@eagletrippin The whole point of the game is to be a realistic motorcycle riding simulator. There's plenty of arcadey motorcycle games out there, but this series is not meant to be like that. It does have a lot of options for simplifying the control though, much like the Forza/GT series.
