A decade on from SBK Generations, SBK22 has finally been released across PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Steam.
While a mobile app on both Android and iOS platforms has been in play for the past two years, PC and console gamers have been lacking up-to-date Superbike action, with Milestone - original creators of Generations - concentrating its time on MotoGP and MXGP editions.
SBK22 features the Official 2022 FIM Superbike World Championship, an immersive and fascinating ‘Career Mode’ and the real WorldSBK weekend with practices, Superpole and races. In ‘Career mode’, players will find a perfect replica of what happens in the real-life WorldSBK Championship, featuring all calendar’s events, real-life WorldSBK weekends and all official teams and riders.
SBK22 aims to recreate an authentic SBK gameplay experience, thanks to its advanced physics developed with the support of real professional riders, aiming to reach an extreme level of simulation in terms of bike and rider behaviour. SBK22 also boasts enhanced realistic features, tyres and development tyres selecting a wide range of Pirelli tyres for dry and wet tracks, and fuel management to balance bike’s weight.
A.N.N.A System, the revolutionary AI system based on neural networks and machine learning, guarantee a tailored gameplay experience, smartly controlling the opponents to create a challenging but fair competition. At the top level, riding behaviours are considered such as human level of skills.
Different editors allow players to customise several aspects of their unique experience. Sticker Editor, Helmet Editor and Number and Butt Patch are those dedicated to the riders and bikes, whereas Fiction Team instead is fully focused on creating a completely fictional team with customisable livery and style.
SBK22 is even made for epic multiplayer races up to 12 players that can create online lobbies where competitions reach another level. SBK22 is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Steam.
