'BMX The Game' (ALL) Early Access Update Adds New Scenarios, Performance Improvements

by Rainier on May 3, 2021 @ 12:08 p.m. PDT

BMX The Game is created by a passionate team of this sport that wants to bring the game the BMX community deserves.

BMX The Game is a new era for BMX games, with the aim of becoming a benchmark for action sports games such as the EA SKATE saga.

The main mechanics of BMX The Game consists of performing tricks and stunts with the bike while riding freely through the city of Barcelona, ​​achieving different scores depending on its complexity and difficulty.

Hi Riders!

As we have already been commenting these days, we update the game again adding 3 new scenarios to edit in the Park Editor, the Born, the Bike Tunnel, and the novelty of the Outdoor Park, still without a name (we accept proposals!). In addition, we have added a new Featured Park, courtesy of FreHDGaming that has been designed exclusively for this Outdoor scenario. We look forward to your creations for the next Featured Parks!

As you will see, the new version is since we are improving many internal things, especially the riding and the detection system.

Soon we will have everything ready for a new Major Update (with many improvements)

In this patch we have put a lot of work into optimization, it was clearly one of our weaknesses. To improve this, we have made several decisions:

The first thing we have done has been to improve and optimize the game, without reducing qualities (File size, load times, general performance improvement, FPS increase, memory resource reduction, etc). It has been a difficult and slow process but we believe it has been worth it.

On the other hand, what we have done is separate the city from the main branch and pass it to Beta.

Not everyone has a PC to be able to play the city of Barcelona (in development). Having two branches, we greatly lighten the main branch and allow you to individually test one or the other and decide which branch is suitable for your PC.

The two branches contain the same core and production status, the only difference between them is the city. In the main branch ( the city is removed, allowing a better overall performance experience.

In the Beta branch ( the city is as always, under development. We continue working to optimize the city and improve the experience.

They have been intense months and we have worked very hard. We hope to show you soon everything that has been done in the Major Update. As we do not know the exact date of publication of the Major, we will update you with videos, images or texts on the #development channel and thus you will be informed of everything.

We hope you enjoy the update and thank you again for all the support you are giving us. We share a small video summary with several improvements that we have been making these months.
