I played the beta weekend a while back on the PS4 and it really wasn't good - they've remodelled the game so that most of the unlocks are based around loot crates / gambling / microtransactions. Also the tracks are now accessed via a sprawling "world map" which makes it unnecessarily hard to work out what tracks you've unlocked, what to tackle next etc. Maybe they've improved it since the beta but I'm not counting on it.
Great point, I hadn't considered this. Just have to wait for the reviews I guess, see if there is any way to incorporate proper throttle control. Surely they wouldn't release a specific controller for just this??
I just don't see how it's going to work on the switch because you absolutely need the different throttle levels to control your bike properly, whereas the switch shoulder buttons are binary so there will be no real throttle control. Unless they're changing it to right analog for throttle but I feel that would be insanely hard.
Agreed it also very frustrating that I like to try and snap my controller and I don’t think my switch can handle it
I personally can't wait for this. I'm historically terrible at the series, but absolutely love it. I'm sure the game gets the difficulty balance right, it's myself that gets the difficult balances incorrect. Just one more go......
