Le Tour de France 2014 Announced

By Marc Hollinshead, 2 years ago
Cyanide Studio and Focus Home Interactive have just recently announced Le Tour de France 2014, a game for all cycling fanatics to get excited about. The game will have players taking part in that prestigious tour through English countryside, London roads, cobbled sections in northern France, legendary mountain stages and the fabulous finish on the Champs Elysées. With the promise of new features, and immersive and addictive gameplay, it's the type of professional cycling that gamers will happily get into.

This year's instalment of the cycling series will see brand new rider animations, exciting and enthralling backdrops and the developers have even gone out of their way with reconnaissance of all stages so that players can feel like they are on the real tracks themselves. The extra Pro Team Mode has also been revealed, which will allow you to compete over a number of different seasons and upgrade your team by gaining the best champions so you can acquire the highly desired "maillot jaune".

To coincide with the game's announcement, five screenshots have also been released, showing off the sunny (and not so sunny) vistas that you'll be cycling through:

To summarize Marc in two words, it would be "Christian Gamer." You will usually find him getting stuck into story heavy action-adventure games, RPG's and the odd quirky title when he isn't raving about Dark Souls and Mass Effect. Outside the world of gaming, Marc attends and helps out in his church on a regular basis and has a not-so thrilling job in a supermarket.
