With the Beijing Olympic Games just on the horizon, dtp Entertainment AG is hoping to capitalise on all of the excitement around the world’s greatest sporting event (and, we imagine, less on people protesting during torch relays), with the release of Summer Athletics for the Microsoft Xbox 360.
Summer Athletics will feature over 25 exhausting disciplines, from sprinting, hurdles and archery to javelin, hammer throw and swimming. Dtp promises “innovative controls”
Four different difficulty levels aim to make Summer Sports accessible to gamers of all abilities, while a create-a-character mode and an “impressive stadium atmosphere” hope to bring the nerve-wrangling feeling of competition into your living room - lycra outfits and dodgy sweat bands optional.
We found it difficult to believe it too, but Summer Athletics will arrive in stores… this summer.
