.” Created in partnership with metaverse studio Dubit, “Moto Island” features online multiplayer racing in a vibrant open world.
The experience is the first foray into virtual worlds for VR46 Metaverse, the company developing the image of the nine-time Motorcycling World Champion, Valentino Rossi, in gaming and metaverses. “Moto Island” is built around accessibility and customization, with the goal of authentically conveying the competitive spirit of motorsport.
"I really wanted to create such an experience, for all motorsport fans and beyond: with ‘Moto Island’ we want to take this sport to another level, offering all players a fun, quality experience,” says Rossi. “Interacting and communicating with my fans has always been a key aspect throughout my career and now it's so exciting being able to do the same with younger generations through Roblox."
“Moto Island” is an open world
"The release of Moto Island constitutes a major milestone in the VR46 Metaverse timeline for 2023," says Jean Claude Ghinozzi, chief executive officer, VR46 Metaverse. "To make this happen we wanted a partner who had great experience in this industry and working with Dubit was the best choice we could make."
“The acronym ‘GOAT’ is bandied around a lot these days,” says Matthew Warneford, co-founder, Dubit. “In the case of Valentino Rossi, it’s absolutely warranted. We’ve loved creating ‘Moto Island’ with VR46 Metaverse and can’t wait to see millions of players enjoy the incredible races.”
“Moto Island” will be constantly updated over the coming months.
