SEGA has revealed today that they intend for the London 2012 Olympic Games to come alive in your living room as they have announced: London 2012 – The Official Video Game, with Kinect Support on the Xbox 360 this June.
Over 30 Olympic events have been authentically recreated in their official Olympic arenas against the capital’s iconic skyline, with a host of new disciplines making their debut in London 2012. Keirin (Cycling) at the Velodrome, 10m Synchronised Platform (Diving) at the Aquatics Centre and Trampoline at North Greenwich Arena are just some of the new sports that will bring the atmosphere of the Olympic venues to life. Take yourself from the spectator seat, to the race track, swimming pool, gymnastics arena and more and feel the adrenaline of the athletes whilst you compete for that coveted gold medal for your country.
For the first time in an officially licensed Olympic video game, London 2012 will support motion control in a number of different events, bringing you even closer to the Olympic Games. Budding sports heroes will have an even more realistic way of competing in a number of events that are compatible with Kinect including 110m Hurdles, and Beach Volleyball. The game also contains a number of game modes including single player Olympic Games mode, online and offline multiplayer and party play.
In another first, London 2012 will take the world’s biggest sporting event online in the form of global leaderboards. The leaderboards will track personal medals gained whilst playing online, with each personal medal won added to that nation’s medal table. Every medal won will help to improve a nation’s standing in the leaderboards, creating even more moments of sporting glory and fame across the globe.
London 2012 will be available in June 2012 for PC, the Xbox 360 and PS3 with both Kinect and Move support.
