Following on from the release of an update roadmap by developers Milestone, MotoGP 21 Patch 6 has been released. And it should mean all the top class motorcycles and riders are revised to match exactly what you’re watching in the real MotoGP championship, which has just visited the Le Mans circuit for round 5 of the series.
The current field were included in the game at launch, but the patch includes the tweaks and changes that teams and riders have made to their bikes and liveries since the season started. So whether you want to emulate the recent success of Jack Miller on the Lenovo Ducati, the surprising form of Aleix Espargaro on the Aprilia or the comeback of Marc Marquez for Repsol Honda, it should look just like what you can see on TV.
The latest game in the MotoGP franchise has also implemented a Long Lap Penalty for the first time. And just like the real version occasionally caught professional riders out at first, some sim racers might appreciate that there’s a new Autodrive option if you’re punished for jumping the start or exceeding track limits. It’s not as quick as riding the extra distance yourself, but does eliminate the risk of crashing to make the situation even worse.
Other useful changes include editable camera angles, if you’ve found the default settings aren’t quite right. And there are a range of fixes for the AI and the Junior Team in career mode.
