MotoGP 23 Cheats and Tips
Walk before you can run
When booting up MotoGP 23 for the first time, you’ll need to choose your game settings. Once you’ve gone through the visual and audio settings, you’ll be greeted with the “Game Experience” options available to you.
There are four choices ranging from Rookie to Extreme. If you’re unsure what to go with, choose Rookie and go on a Track Trial. This will give you the opportunity to feel how you perform in MotoGP 23 before you get to the first race of the year in Career Mode.
The track trial takes place at Mugello, one of the best circuits in the game. Mugello gives you a range of every type of corner, as well as one of the longest straights on the 2023 MotoGP calendar.
While this isn’t as comprehensive as going through a whole race, it will allow you to assess which difficulty settings are correct for you without any consequences.
One of the best new features in MotoGP 22 was the introduction of the MotoGP Academy. Thankfully, Milestone has kept this in MotoGP 23 and it remains one of the best ways to learn within the game.
Similar to the Driving Licence Tests in Gran Turismo 7, MotoGP Academy focuses on the basics and rewards clean and consistent driving.
The academy is available to try on every circuit in the game, including Historical Tracks. While Time Trial is handy, MotoGP Academy splits tracks up into their sectors for you to try out individually.
This more granular approach to improvement allows you to focus on specific corners which are catching you out. MotoGP Academy can be accessed via the Training section of the Single Player menu.
How may I assist you?
There is no shame in making the most of the assists in racing games – we all have to start somewhere after all. This is especially true when you’re finding your feet within MotoGP 23.
In Career Mode, you can alter your “Riding Aids” by pressing triangle on PlayStation, or Y on Xbox. You can opt for choosing one of the Game Experiences we mentioned before or manually change each assist to suit you.
While the preset difficulty options are good, we recommend changing each assist yourself. This is because you may be very good at braking, but not as good at controlling the bike when accelerating out of low-speed corners.
We recommend spending some time in Time Trial and the MotoGP Academy and finding what your sweet spot is in terms of both assists and the level of the AI.
Something to bear in mind though is that the more assists you have, the slower your ultimate pace will be. So, it’s best to shave the assists away before increasing the AI’s speed, if possible.
