MotoGP 15 features 18-tracks, and the official riders from the 2014-2015 season of the Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP, and will also feature customizable bikes. The season starts with the night race in Losail, and also includes Jerez, Assen and Sepang, with a wind and wet weather system. Other features include tyre wear, damage and mechanical failures.
Per official entries, Paul Bird Motorsport retired from the championship, but Suzuki and Aprilia made an official return. One new feature is the ability for the player to create their own racing team, with choice of logo etc. Starting off with a Mahindra bike, the player must advance through the classes, and recruit sponsors. The game also has a mode which focuses on recreating events from the 2014 season, and in particular the rivalry between Jorge Lorenzo, Valentino Rossi and Marc Márquez, and the comebacks from riders such as Andrea Iannone. The PlayStation4 version features an online league mode, where players battle for the best lap times.
