[Embargoed: Thursday 18th November 0800 PT//1600 GMT] Zwift, the online global fitness platform, is today opening the roads of Neokyo, the first expansion to Zwift’s latest world, Makuri Islands. Neokyo follows the original May 2021 Yumezi map release and doubles the size of Makuri Islands. Zwifters will be able to ride and run between these two contrasting maps, which will be connected by a road through the rice fields.
Taking inspiration from Japan’s major cities, Neokyo has electrified the night. Vibrant colours, popping neon lights and glistening fast roads ensure this nighttime city is anything but dark.
The perfect contrast to the tranquillity of Yumezi, Neokyo introduces the fast-paced nature of city living to Makuri Islands. Fast flat roads, towering buildings, eye-popping neon billboards, nighttime revellers and arcade halls make Neokyo a perfect place to test your legs and ride fast. A new adventure awaits.
From launch, there will be 8 thrilling new routes to ride. Check them out below (Lead-ins are not included in distances.)
Explore everything that Neokyo has to offer including four sprints and a KOM along this challenging route.
This is a large release, so Zwifters are advised to allow time to update before joining events. For more information head to www.zwift.com/neokyo
