Today, the folks at Rainbow Studios announced a brand-new season is going live, which will include major performance improvements, bug fixes for both online and single player modes, and many other changes meant to further enhance the overall gameplay experience.

Apart from the performance improvements that these updates will bring to the game, developers also revealed plans to give the UI and menus a fresh revamp for faster, more convenient navigation, a renovated garage to make it easier to display your vehicles, along with another important update to the gameplay physics.

But wait, there’s more! One, or more, of Season Two’s upcoming updates will bring new suspension upgrade parts from Showa, Pro Circuitry & Factory Connection, new rider gear sets from Thor, Seven, FXR, and AlpineStars, as well as new Monster Energy and Slayco Graphic kits. The latter will probably the most sought-after items in the game, although the new rider gear sets look quite appealing too.

Released periodically throughout the new season, these features and updates will be small quality of life changes, but others will be massive and will change the way players interact with the game. For example, some of the features planned for Season Two include dynamic weather, photo mode, replay mode, and Steam Deck compatibility among other things.

Also, in addition to the already mentioned accessories and gear from iconic brands, Rainbow Studios announced that a continuous stream of new licensed and fantasy rider gear and vehicle customization options will be added to the game throughout the entire new season, so expect more announcements regarding this type of content.

One of the issues with MX vs ATV Legends was that the competitors controlled by the AI (artificial intelligence) were too easy to beat. Thankfully, that will be addressed in the future update, which will include improvements to the AI to make them more competitive.

According to developers, new animations will be implemented, including Tear-Offs, while collision work for off-line and online racing will get some improvements too. Apparently, big changes are coming to the leaderboard system too, as the folks at Rainbow Studios call it “the most feature rich global leaderboard system out there.” We’re pretty curious about what the developers will come up with, especially since they promised to provide more details on this feature very soon.
