For nearly 10 years, the Cycling Manager series, created by Cyanide studio, has
offered a clever mix between sports simulation and management. It has
continuously increased its audience through its different versions, each
introducing novelties and each becoming the new video game benchmark for
hundreds of thousands of players.
Today, Pro Cycling Manager starts afresh to offer its most beautiful cycling
season. Benefiting from a new more beautiful and more powerful graphic engine,
Pro Cycling Manager/Tour de France 2010 marks one of the most important steps
since the beginning of the series!
Concerned with offering the richest and most realistic experience possible,
Cyanide designed a new graphic engine for the 2010 edition to allow a level of
detail never seen before during the races.
Thus, many improvements reinforce the race stages' realism. The game features
very high resolution textures and a new handling of the flora which is now
luxuriant, more diverse and environmentally accurate to where the race is taking
place. The lighting ambiance of each one of the hundreds of stages has been
reworked according to various weather conditions - sunny, rainy, cloudy, foggy,
etc. - in order to offer more believable and vivid sets.
Lastly, many advanced visual effects complete the ultimate rendering of the
game, especially during postproduction: the "bloom" effect simulates image
exposure to light, more depth of field enhances the focus of the TV cameras that
follow cyclists during each race.
This new more detailed and realistic look offers the most beautiful and the most
authentic experience in bigger and more diverse environments.
A brand new season mode appears and offers an unprecedented level of
customization. Create your own competitions and organize a whole year season!
From the choice of the stages and the unfolding of the calendar, to the point
scale, and from the selection of the participating teams to the draft option,
each individual parameter can be modified. Save your competition and share it
with your friends!
The carreer mode has been redesigned. It is now possible to plan ahead for
cyclists' inscription. The carreer mode also provides many tests to
challenge-lovers. More than 50 official records await the best sports managers.
They will have to give the best of themselves if they want to match them... or
even beat them!
Creative minds will be delighted to know that they have not been forgotten, as
the game also includes a new race editor! The powerful, more efficient and more
accessible race editor allows the creation of an infinite number of new and
extremely detailed races. From the route to the curves of the roads, from
background and vegetation to the detailed weather setting, the track editor also
allows players to create races in real locations of the world! Perfect to set
your imagination free and satisfy players in need of new races!
