Focus Home Interactive confirm release dates for Tour de France 2018 and Pro Cycling Manager 2018.
This year’s Tour de France begins in two months, and armchair cyclists can look forward to taking part via two new video games published by Focus Home Interactive.
The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will be getting Tour de France 2018. This year’s game leans even deeper into simulation territory with a new team progression system, an improved rider Fitness Peak System, and more aggressive AI riders to compete against. The brand new Pro Leader career mode rounds out the package.
The game will include the official track of Le Tour 2018, as well as an extensive roster of other races, including the mythical Paris-Roubaix.
On PC, Pro Cycling Manager 2018 gives players the opportunity lead a professional cycling team through a full season of 200 races across 500 worldwide courses. Famous tours such as La Vuelta are included, in addition to the Tour de France.
Improvements to this year’s edition include enhanced contract negotiations and recruitment mechanics, but strangely, no battle royale mode. The game can be played solo, or online in leagues or clans of up to 16 players.
Tour de France 2018 will be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and Pro Cycling Manager 2018 will be released on PC on June 28, 2018. Both titles will be available via digital download or at retail.
