Lesquin, 23 September 2020 – NACON and Big Ant Studios are proud to present a video of Tennis World Tour 2 highlighting its numerous new features. The game will be available from September 24th on PS4, Xbox One and PC, and the 15th of October on Nintendo SwitchTM.

Tennis World Tour 2 offers several new features and improvements to give players an immersive experience. The card system is back, orientated more around gameplay. With 5 cards available at the beginning of the match, the player will need to think tactically and use them at key moments: increased stamina, a more precise service, or the reduction of the competitor’s power by some points, these are crucial in swinging a close match.

 

The career mode of Tennis World Tour 2 lets you manage every aspect of your career on your journey to become rank 1: from the choice of appearance, to staff recruitment, and the organization of each season, leave nothing to chance if you want to win points and advance to the most prestigious tournaments.

The pace of the game has been improved by the addition of our precision return mechanic. Correctly understanding the rhythm of the rally will allow you to optimize the power and precision of your returns.  Additionally, several types of courts are available, which influence both the ball and the players. Adapt your game to the area and the weather conditions to maximize your chances of picking up the win!

 

Finally, the online mode is also back. More stable and complete, it includes new features like double matches and the solo ranked mode.

 

With more realistic gameplay and the chance to play as the biggest tennis stars in world-famous competitions, Tennis World Tour 2 is a simulation made to please both tennis fans and demanding gamers.

Tennis World Tour 2 will offer the most comprehensive tennis experience:

  • Highly anticipated new features: the ability to play doubles matches with up to 4 players locally and online, a competitive mode, an improved serve system and a new shot timing mechanic
  • More realistic: more animations create smoother gameplay
  • Multiple game modes: Career, Quick Match, Online, Tournament, Ranked Match and Tie Break Tens - there's a format to suit every player
  • Several official courts: The Estadio Manolo Santana of the Mutua Madrid Open, the OWL ARENA of Halle or the 3 courts of Roland-Garros: Philippe-Chatrier, Suzanne-Lenglen and Simonne-Mathieu.

Tennis World Tour 2 will be available on 24th September on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC, and 15th October on Nintendo SwitchTM
