Get the latest updates on Ride 2.
The Virtua Rider, already used in the first installment of Ride, returns to Ride 2 with new functionality. As in the first title, Virtua Riders are reproductions driven by the AI profiles of your friends list: they maintain their main characteristics and actively participate in races. So how can you use them? Go to the My Team option in the main menu to choose your team mates. In addition to some default choices for those without an online connection, you can browse your friends list in this section, and, if they own a copy of Ride 2, download their respective Virtua Riders. The latter, as well as showing a 1 to 8 score based on the quality of their recorded race times, will maintain a riding style similar to their owners, as well as using their favourite bike and chosen gear. They will of course keep updating as your friends continue the game experience. When forming the team, you can choose a “right-hand man” and two other teammates: the first will be an ever-present in your races, even in the Career, the other two will accompany you in Team VS Team challenges, which we will discuss next week.
