The latest edition of Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Video Game has been unveiled by Milestone and Feld Entertainment, Inc. The title, which will be released on March 17, will include a more in-depth career mode, as well as split-screen mode for those playing in the same household. Those are the most noteworthy changes, as it appears that the game will be fairly similar to Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Video Game 4 for the most part.
Although the teaser has prompted criticism from fans, it is important to remember that the gameplay in those videos is not indicative of what the actual game is going to play like. Those videos tend to be built by players who are not familiar with the sport and thus do not know how to play it correctly. MX Vice is eager to get hands on a copy before release, to provide a true look at what Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Video Game 5 has to offer.
