One of the greatest things about gaming is that there is always someone somewhere championing a niche of enthusiasts. Milestone are based in Italy and have almost single handedly maintained the bike simulator gaming interests year after year.

RIDE is this years motorbike sim, featuring a hundred different bikes and a 15 track world tour. If this is your gaming niche, then check out the Ride system requirements to see if you can get the best from this beautiful spectacle. Ride releases on PC later this week, Friday 27th March.

RIDE is available on Xbox One, PS4 as well as PC. Which means that those requirements above, you see them, the ones that say Ride needs a GTX 780 or even an AMD R9 290X graphics card? They are pretty over the top for a recommended graphics requirement and likely to be the sort of hardware you would need to get RIDE pumped out on Ultra graphics settings. And we certainly expect Ride to look gorgeous on a rig that has the power to turn it all up to max.

Well the good news is we have our own copy of RIDE and we will be benchmarking it on some mid ranged hardware to see what the frame rate deal really is. So stay tuned and for now check out the Ride Launch Trailer below and visit the Ride system requirements report tool to check your system.
