Formula 1 has Monaco, endurance racing has Le Mans and IndyCar has the 500. Motorcyclists have their equivalent on a small island in the Irish Sea and it's arguably the most challenging race of any kind in the world.

Despite the race not being on the MotoGP calendar since the 1970s, the Isle of Man TT has continued to this day and is one of the most popular sporting events in the UK.

Gameplay

Ride on the Edge 3 will feature 32 circuits with both current and historical courses included. There will also be almost 40 Superbike and Supersport bikes and riders.

Each bike can be upgraded to increase performance and get you closer to being the fastest on the island.

To get a sense of the challenge awaiting you, the first TT Isle of Man - Ride on the Edge 3 gameplay footage takes us on a high-speed ride through the first section of the Snaefell Mountain course.

RaceWard has updated the physics with an emphasis on braking and cornering. The next-gen hardware will allow for haptic feedback, meaning that steering and stopping will be more realistic than ever before.

Open Roads

Ride on the Edge 3 will introduce a new Open Roads feature allowing riders to explore 124 miles of roads around the Isle of Man, find challenges, and compete in weekly and monthly events.

It almost sounds like this will be the Forza Horizon 5 of bike games, just with a different setting in the Isle of Man.

Release date

We don't have a specific release date yet, but developers Raceward have stated that Ride on the Edge 3 will launch in May 2023.

Platforms

Raceward also confirmed which systems Ride on the Edge 3 will launch on. Both current and old-gen hardware will get the game, despite the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One turning 10 years old next year.

This is likely due to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S still having nowhere near the size of player base that the old-gen hardware does. Of course, Ride on the Edge 3 will be available on PC as well via the Steam Store.

Nintendo Switch is the final console confirmed for this title, with the hybrid system getting Ride on the Edge 3 in May 2023 like the rest of the consoles.
