Sega will be publishing London 2012 – The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games which will feature the official venues fully rendered to their exact specifications.
London 2012 will allow players to compete in over 30 Olympic events and will be available in June 2012 for PC, the Xbox 360 video and the PlayStation 3. And as expected, London 2012 will include motion control support for PlayStation Move and Kinect.
New disciplines will be 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 that Sega has listed. Another first is global leaderboards, which will track personal medals gained whilst playing online, with each personal medal won added to that nation’s medal table.
“We are proud to offer the Great British public the chance to actually experience the excitement and pride of taking part in London 2012.” commented Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA of America.
“With all new Olympic events and returning favourite sports brought to life with the very latest video gaming technology, everyone will be able to participate in the Olympic Games from their own home.”
