Polyphony Digital is back this year with Tourist Trophy, a new motorcycle racing sim developed by the creators of the legendary Gran Turismo series. With the same dedication to perfection shown to the vehicles in Gran Turismo, Tourist Trophy brings the same enthusiasm to motorcycles showcasing more than 100 bikes from top manufacturers around the world like BMW Motorrad, Ducati, Kawasaki, Buell, Honda, and Triumph. Gamers test their skills on over 35 different international courses, each one meticulously designed specifically for Tourist Trophy, as well as including favorites from Gran Turismo like Laguna Seca, New York City, Suzuka and Tsukuba. To make sure that no detail is left out, extensive customization features for both riders and motorcycles let gamers choose licensed gear to wear, riding form, and of course, upgrades for better performance and speed.
Since Tourist Trophy is a sim, it involves more than just hitting the X button to race. Gamers must learn to balance motorcycles correctly for optimal results. Skills like leaning into turns without laying down the bike or crashing into other racers are vital to staying in the top spots. For an extra pop of realism, race in the first-person point of view, and don't forget to check the gauges-all the motorcycles have functioning gauges so gamers can monitor their bike's performance during races. Tourist Trophy has tons of options from skill tests, to quick races, to an all-out career mode, keeping racing and motorcycle fans happy for a long time
