Real Events Mode coming to MXGP2

MXGP2 – The official motocross videogame is set to arrive on Xbox One on April 8th. Today the game’s publishers, PQube, have announced a new game mode coming to the franchise.

Named Real Events 2015, what exactly it is seems pretty self-explanatory. But to save you guys wasting time doing that thinking stuff, let me just tell you instead.

The new game mode introduces a total of 19 real events which took place (for real) during the 2015 MXGP Championship season. Players can change the destiny of Ryan Villopoto against Antonio Cairoli during the MXGP of Qatar after his bike wouldn’t start, overtake Gautier Paulin, be in the boots of Shaun Simpson during the MXGP of Belgium and much more.
