Milestone have announced next-generation Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 editions of motorcycle racing game RIDE 4, which releases on current-gen consoles this October.
Both next-gen editions will support 60FPS gameplay and 4K resolutions, with up to 20 riders able to compete in both online and offline races.
The PS5 version will make use of the DualSense controller’s advanced haptic feedback feature to simulate varying degrees of gas and break lever resistance. Meanwhile, the console’s powerful SSD will be used to “significantly” cut loading times.
RIDE 4 is out 8 October on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam. XSX and PS5 versions will launch 30 April 2021.
Will you be getting RIDE 4? If so, are you looking forward to the free next-gen upgrade? Let us know below.

Nintendo gave us a look at some more indie titles making their way to Switch in its latest Indie World Showcase video.
Spritfarer, a game where you pilot a ship that’s ferrying dead spirits to the afterlife, is also making its way to Switch. Players can customise their boat, make new friends and explore an “imaginary world.” It’s available to download right now on the Switch eShop.
We also got a look at “wholesome action-adventure” and community-rebuilding game Garden Story, which is coming to Switch sometime next year. Underwater exploration title Subnautica and its sequel Subnautica: Below Zero are scheduled to make their way to Nintendo’s hybrid console in 2021 as well.
Other highlights included confirmation of a co-op mode for Untitled Goose Game coming in September; India-set action-adventure title Raji: An Ancient Epic, which takes inspiration from Hindu and Balinese mythology (out now); “quaint management” game Bear and Breakfast (2021), in which you (a bear) host guests in a rebuilt bed and breakfast; colourful dungeon crawler Torchlight 3 (autumn 2020); and mind-bending puzzler Manifold Garden, which is out now.
You can catch up on all the rest of today’s big reveals in the complete Nintendo Indie World Showcase video above.

Rebellion Unplugged, the board game division of UK-based video game publisher and developer Rebellion (Rogue Trooper Redux, Sniper Elite 4), have announced a Kickstarter campaign for a Sniper Elite tabletop game.
Those playing as the sniper can use equipment cards and lay traps to aid them in their mission, while defenders can call upon specialist soldiers from amongst the ranks of their squads, such as fast moving scouts, healing medics and attack-focused Jager troopers.
The game has been designed by David Thompson (War Chest, Castle Itter) and Roger Tankersley, and has artwork and miniatures designed by the video game series’ concept art team.
Backer rewards include a solo mode, the Eagles Nest expansion pack, and a unique Hitler teste-kill miniature that recreates one of the series most iconic moments.
“It’s a privilege to bring the hugely popular Sniper Elite video game series to the tabletop, with brilliant designers, beautiful art and lovingly crafted miniatures,” said Rebellion Unplugged head Duncan Molloy. “Sniper Elite the Board Game delivers all the tension and excitement about the video games. We can’t wait for players to get their hands on it!”
At the time of writing, the Kickstarter campaign currently has amassed almost half of its £22,000 goal from 196 backers.
