It’s no secret that the Track Editor has always been one of the most beloved features of the Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Video Game franchise. It empowers players by allowing them to use their endless creativity to build their tracks and present them to the world, telling them, “Hey, players, look at this track I created for you! I would love for you to have some tricks on it! “
As a fan of the discipline, one of the things that has amazed me since the day I started following the sport was the fact that the tracks the riders run on are different with each new championship. Supercross Federation track designers have to come up with new ideas, new challenges every year to keep the track interesting, challenging and fun to watch. So when we designed the Track Editor feature, we asked ourselves, “Why don’t we give players the same opportunities as these track designers?”
Initially, the idea of the contest was limited to giving a prize to the player who created the most popular song… but it was not enough. The more we talked about the price, the more we thought about it. “What if the prize was the creation of the track itself?”
Thus, after much research and discussion, the idea became a project: “Let us give the winner the satisfaction of seeing his creation become reality!”
Every year, players submit thousands of tracks on every platform, creating amazing leads from every perspective: it doesn’t matter from a layout or flow perspective. There are dedicated communities that compare their creations, ask for feedback, improve their tracks to find the perfect mix of elements to create the best track.
Some of these tracks get so much positive feedback and are so fun to play that we thought the Track Editor Contest could even be stepped up to the level where the winner’s track will be used as the track for the next official Supercross Championship.
It’s amazing in so many ways. We’re so used to the fact that video games mimic and take inspiration from reality that we’re not even surprised anymore. This is one of the few times that reality will be inspired by what is created inside a video game.
This track editor contest empowers players to a level almost never seen in the video game industry, giving them the chance to create something that will truly have a huge impact on reality, on a championship where the world’s strongest racers compete against each other .
As a designer it’s something that goes beyond anything I’ve ever dreamed of and I’m more than happy to see one of the players from Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Video Game 4 seize this opportunity and make the difference in the future Supercross championship!
