Previous trailers have shown snippets of gameplay, but this is the first time we’ve seen raw uncut gameplay of Milestone’s new supercross game in action.

Created in collaboration with the content creator EnduroGame, the gameplay trailer shows an intense 22-grid race with lots of jumping and scrubbing action. We also get a look at the terrain deformation and first-person helmet camera, providing extra immersion.

According to Milestone, the bike control in MES 5 is improved, allowing for more precision when navigating the bumpy dirt tracks.

The steering, suspension, and drift management are also more refined. Thanks to these improvements, you won't fall off your bike when opening the throttle at the end of a drift.

Rider Shape System


While the racing action shown in the gameplay trailer will look familiar to anyone who played the last four games, MES 5 introduces a new Ride Shape System. Falling off your bike now has consequences, leading to rider injuries that affect performance.

The Rider Shape System monitors eight areas of your rider’s body that can be injured. Dislocating a shoulder or elbow, for example, will affect your rider’s ability to control the bike.
