We better get those head gears ready.

A new racing game reminiscent of "Gran Turismo" and "Forza" is set to hit the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on Mar. 20. According to GamesRadar, "Ride" allows players to experience action in "real-life circuits," set in 15 locations all over the world.

Developed by Milestone and published by Bandai Namco, "Ride" makes its road signature though a complete motorcycle racing simulator, distinguishing it from "Gran Turismo." The game is bound to offer more than 100 bikes from the world's most popular manufacturers, IGN said, and players can only imagine how deep its gameplay can be.

If this doesn't sound exciting enough, wait til you learn that the game allows customization of bikes to the finest of details, GamesRadar noted. The vehicles are further categorized in four different classes: Superbikes, Supersports, Historic Bikes and Naked Bikes. Circuits range from historic, country to city tracks.

In addition, the game offers 100 clothing items for male and female riders, as well as 20 bike upgrade packs. Customization tweaks are not limited to few areas. One can change gender, boots, gloves, jeans, jackets, helmets, visors and suits. Bike engine, wheels, transmission, brake and suspension systems may also be altered, Stevivor said.

These customization pieces are available to purchase through the title's in-game currency, which can be used online or offline.

As told by GameSpot, Milestone has promised "an intense and incredibly deep racing experience." The outlet took note of Chris Gilbert's remarks, Bandai Namco's Senior VP of Sales and Marketing, saying "With 'Ride,' Milestone has captured the quintessential motorcycle racing experience, with a huge selection of bikes, tracks and customization."

"With so much content, coupled with true-to-life racing simulation, motorcycle fans will finally have the next-gen racer they've been waiting for, and gamers of all stripes can experience the adrenaline rush of the redline," Gilbert went on.

The first gameplay video of "Ride" has hit the web last year, VideoGamer reported. The clip showcased a tour around Stelvio, an Italian mountain range. You can check it out here.

Late in February, Milestone released a new trailer for the title, featuring the streets of Milan.

Milestone is credited for the development of racing games such as "MotoGP 14" and "WRC 4 World Rally Championship," among others. For more information on "Ride," head over here. Preorder available here.
