This may seem to be a simple game at first, but it’s not. Throughout the journey, you will crash many times. Luckily, when you crash you will always start at the last checkpoint, and the developers keep each section very short on purpose so that starting a track again from the last checkpoint isn’t too frustrating. Thanks to our ragdoll crash system, crashes are always unique and fun to watch, especially for those who watch your crashes.

The game also features lots of handcrafted mountains. Each mountain will have some sections which are seamlessly connected with multiple routes to the following checkpoint.

It’s all up to you! Take the relaxing scenic path, travel off-road to seek secret locations, or opting for the “full speedrun mode”, making yourself the fastest one ever who can race down the steep canyon.

Here comes the newly-launched trailer of the game:

Lonely Mountains: Downhill will hit the trails on October 23rd, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC/Mac and will cost you about €19.99/ £17.99/ $19.99. The date for Nintendo Switch will be announced later on.

If that all still sounds too easy for you, well, no need to worry! We’ve decided to increase the challenge even a bit more by adding a Night Mode!  Your bike comes with a headlight, but are you confident enough to use only that to light up every nook and cranny of the trails? This task is challenging and exciting at the same time! Enjoy the newly- launched trailer above to see all the predictions!

There’s no one-size-fits-all bike for every mountain and rider. That’s the reason why you will have to unlock new bikes with distinctive features, so you can try each one to see which one best fits the trail and your playstyle!

And the founders know that different players have different tastes of bikes’ appearance. Thus, each of the bikes will be equipped with various skins for players to unlock or find.

One of the game highlights is untouched nature. Therefore, take your bike all over the world and experience a beautiful nature untouched by men. No audience, no barrier tapes – just you and your bike

The founders plan to make the game’s landscapes come to life. For example, trees are swinging in the breeze, butterflies flying from flowers to flowers or you can even find out different types of animals and birds while riding down.

The sound is also another highlight of the game. You can’t hear any background music whilst you bike down the trail. But you are expected to listen to the trees whispering in the wind, animal grazing and birds chirping in the thick forest as well as the buzzing sound of the insects nearby.
