If you’re a die hard Ducatisti who loves a videogame then your Christmases may have all come at once.
To celebrate their 90th anniversary, Ducati have teamed up with fellow Italians and videogame producers, Milestone, to launch the imaginatively titled “Ducati – 90th Anniversary The Official Videogame”.
Available from June for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC/STEAM, the game is essentially a Ducati-only version of the motorcycle race simulator RIDE launched this time last year.
39 different Ducati models are featured in the game divided into 7 eras from 1950 onwards, 29 of which have never been seen in this context before. They include the 125 Desmo (1958), 500 Pantah (1970), 750 F1 (1980), the first Monster 900 (1990) or the various evolutions of the naked, such as the Monster S4RS Tricolore. The Superbike range includes the 848 (2000), 1199 Panigale Superleggera (2014), as well as the Desmosecidici GP15 ridden by Andrea Dovizioso in MotoGP.
Ensuring the gamer has plenty of choice of where to use their selected weapon, the game comes complete with 8 reproduced circuits from around the world as well as 5 road tracks including North Wales and the French Riviera. While Donington Park, Imola, Magny Cours, Almeria are all featured as is the home of World Ducati Week, Misano World Circuit ‘Marco Simoncelli’.
As an added bonus, Ducati fans can browse all the technical and historical detail of every bike via the Museum section of the videogame.
