First Tennis World Tour 2 Gameplay Trailer Revealed
NACON and Big Ant Studios recently unveiled the very first gameplay trailer for the upcoming Tennis World Tour 2. The game, which is a joint project, will be released this September on PC as well as the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
This is not their first collaboration as NACON also worked with Big Ant on AO Tennis 2. Benoît Clerc, Head of Publishing at NACON, has expressed his delight at the extension of the partnership. He stated that Big Ant is a specialist in sports simulation and that the studio shares the same gaming vision as NACON when it comes to what they want to offer tennis fans with the Tennis World Tour franchise.
Tennis World Tour 2 promises fans a realistic tennis game that captures the unique characteristics of the sport as well as the competitiveness. Many aspects of the game have been redesigned from the ground up based on feedback from a fan community comprising some 700,000 gamers. Among these changes are faster gameplay as well as more animations.
Big Ant studio also expressed their desire to offer more diverse content for this new game in the series. To accomplish this they have added doubles tennis as well as “Tie Break Tens” to the game. The latter should be familiar to tennis players as it is a format consisting of short matches where the winner is the first to reach ten points. This mode should be particularly enticing to anyone interested in intense matches and a quick series of games.
Here is a full breakdown of what players can expect from Tennis World Tour 2:
Highly anticipated new features: the ability to play doubles matches with up to 4 players locally and online, an improved serve system and a new shot timing mechanic
Multiple official stadiums, among them the Manuel Santana court in Madrid and the OWL Arena in Halle
1 new competition format: Tie Break Tens
38 tennis stars: the biggest names are all featured this year, including Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, and Ashleigh Barty
Multiple game modes: Career, Quick Match, Online, Tournament, Ranked Match and Tie Break Tens – there’s a format to suit every player
