Deep Silver has announced a new motion-control sports game, Winter Sports, for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii. The game will utilize the Kinect, PlayStation Move and Wii Balance Board motion controllers. According to Deep Silver, Winter Stars will feature easy-to-learn motion controls, using a "family mode" to allow each participant to choose his or her own individual difficulty level.
In single player mode, Winter Stars offers a campaign that allows the gamer to experience a winter athlete's career, ranging through 11 winter sports including paraskiing, curling, snowmobile, bobsled, downhill skiing, figure skating, biathlon, freeride skiing, snowboard cross, ski flying, and short-track. The story-driven single player mode includes an extensive career system and character development, as well as special challenges such as training sessions. Players can use the experience points they earn to purchase new equipment and improve their skills in preparation for diverse challenges.
The game's multiplayer mode supports up to four players who can engage in online or offline competitions.
Winter Stars will be released sometime in Winter 2011.
