Square Enix and developer Milestone announced today that Ride 2 will be available on February 14, 2017 in North America for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. By pre-ordering the Day One Edition, you’ll get four exclusive bikes – Ducati Hypermotard SP, Kawasaki ZZR 1400, Aprilia Tuono V4 Factory, Suzuki Hayabusa – and a pack of 20 helmets for customizing your rider avatar.
Ride 2 includes a total of 190 bikes from 22 different manufacturers (full list), and monthly post-launch content will bring the total to over 230 bikes. Nine DLC packs with “special downloadable (free) content” will be released from February to July, while paid DLC will also be available.
Here’s what Square Enix says about Ride 2:
Ride 2 is all about delivering more to fans – more bikes, more tracks, and even more game modes to play with, now increased to 15. If Ride had already got you used to taking on some of the most challenging and famous tracks, Ride 2 won’t fail to shock you once again! There are now 30 world-renowned tracks to race through, with new legendary circuits and different types of tracks. Following widespread clamor from the community, Road Race Tracks such as Nürburgring Nordschleife, Ulster GP and Northwest 200 will be included, along with the Supermoto Circuits such as Castelletto di Branduzzo, Ottobiano and Franciacorta.
Customization is a huge part of Ride 2, and now you boost your bike by modifying 5 main areas (Engine/Brakes & Suspension/Wheels/Transmission/Aesthetics) from over 1,200 real-world parts and accessories to create your ultimate dream ride. And don’t forget to customize your rider profile from clothing style down (Street/Race/Supermoto) down to the gear, riding style and poses. No racing game comes close to this level of customization!
In Europe, Ride 2 releases on October 7 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, published by Bandai Namco. A Season Pass unlocking all of the paid DLC for Ride 2 will be priced at €29.99, while the nine free packs will release from November to July.
