From a graphical point of view, SBKX has superior graphic details than SBK09. Each graphic element has been improved: from the sky, with a 4x higher definition, to a completely animated 3D public, to 14 track sceneries that have been reproduced in detail. Also bike and rider damages have been improved, making them more spectacular and different depending on the dynamics of each single fall.
In this new episode the scenery is not a side element anymore but it's a fundamental aspect of the riding experience. A new characteristic has been added called Evolving Track: SBKX is based on a system that modifies track conditions depending on bikes passes; this means that a dry track gets tire rubber in braking and accelerating areas, while a wet track will become drier and drier on the ideal trajectory. This means that the grip will change dynamically lap after lap, leading to a more precise and technical riding on top of being a very important aesthetic element.
Online mode gets bigger allowing racing against 15 opponents in both Arcade and Simulation modes.
Also available immediately in the Limited Edition or later as a downloadable content on both consoles is the legendary SBK roster, with riders such as Bayliss, Fogarty, Spies, Edwards, Chili, Bostrom.. All the men that together made the Superbike something great, in a dream head to head.
