New Images of Pro Cycling Manager/Tour de France 2010!

Prepare for an incredible cycling season! Today Focus Home Interactive has released a new set of images from Pro Cycling Manager/Tour de France 2010. These new screens testify to the incredible improvements made to this ever-more popular sports game series.

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 lush and diverse. Multiple advanced visual effects complement the rendering of the game's environments: the bloom effect simulates image exposure to light, the depth of field enhances the focus of TV cameras that follow cyclists during each race, while the motion blur simulates speed.

But it's more than just visual improvements that are part of the evolution of the Pro Cycling Manager/Tour de France 2010 series -- we have added features to the management part of the game: a new Season mode, numerous challenges, performances and official historic records to beat, and 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!
