Tour de France: The Official Game

Out next month.

Tour de France: The Official Game launches for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 1st July.

The game was made by Cyanide, the studio behind Pro Cycling Manager.

Tour de France: The Official Game, obviously, focuses on cycling event: Le Tour de France. You control a single rider in each of the 21 official playable stages.

The official blurb mentions riding honourably to gain the respect of the pack. This shapes your reputation and allows you to "renew or destroy" strategies and alliances. Meow.

"It's been a long time that we (at Cyanide) have been thinking of a cycling game especially designed for home consoles, Cyanide boss Patrick Pligersdorffer said.

"We could not adapt on consoles what perfectly works on PC with Pro Cycling Manager, so we worked on different prototypes before arriving at a satisfying result last year. Tour de France is the first important step in our quest for the ideal cycling simulation for home consoles."
