While the Tour de France is just starting its most exciting week with the first mountain stages, we are pleased to present Pro Cycling Manager's Tour de France's special trailer. This great competition is only one of 180 playable competitions in the game. The 2010 edition spectacularly captures the details of the Tour de France, with its mountain and flat stages, and of course its finish line on the Champs Elysées. All of this is perfectly illustrated in today's trailer, entirely dedicated to the Tour de France!
For its tenth edition, Pro Cycling Manager/Tour de France 2010 features a brand new graphic engine. In order to provide a more realistic and a more intense experience, the game features high resolution textures and a new handling of the flora, which is now more luxuriant and diverse. Many advanced visual effects complete the ultimate rendering of the game: the bloom effect simulates image exposure to light, the depth of field enhances the focus of the TV cameras that follow cyclists during each race, while the motion blur simulates speed.
But all these improvements shouldn’t make you overlook that Pro Cycling Manager/Tour de France 2010's evolutions are not limited to the race. Many novelties are also implemented on the manager part of the game: a new Season mode, numerous challenges, performances and official historic records to beat, or even a new stage editor to create your stages in great detail! Without a doubt, 2010 will be a big year for Pro Cycling Manager!
