MotoGP '07 announced

For PC and Xbox 360 in autumn.

Roaring onto the starting-grid this afternoon is THQ, who's announced a fresh new motorbike adventure for Xbox 360 and PC, due for release this autumn.

MotoGP '07 will expand on last year's efforts by adding 800cc bikes, more tracks, fresh next-gen visuals and more customisation options than ever before. Plus there'll be all the latest information from the 2007 racing season, online tournaments and pink-slip racing, as well as revamped GP and Extreme modes.

"THQ's MotoGP titles have shipped in excess of 1.5 million units and are critically acclaimed for pushing the limits of realism and console technology," said Bob Aniello, senior vice president of worldwide marketing, THQ. "With MotoGP ‘07, THQ raises the bar yet again for both core gamers and racing enthusiasts."

We really enjoyed racing around at hair-raising speeds in last year's MotoGP '06, perhaps a more gentle learning curve and improved load times can make this new title even more essential. You can read our review elsewhere on the site.

Of course, it's not the only bike engine bubbling on the grid ready for the next-gen race, with Koch's SBK 07: Superbike World Championship due for PC and Xbox 360 in October. Perhaps the niche world of two-wheelers finally has some fierce competition.
