Fancy yourself as a bit of a Federer on the court? Or have no actual tennis skills whatsoever but have a huge love for the game? Either way you’re going to love the new game from Breakpoint Studio! Even though it’s a brand new tennis title, Tennis World Tour has been hailed as the spiritual successor to Top Spin 4, as Breakpoint Studio is made up of some alumni of 2K Czech (the creators of the Top Spin series).
A total of 33 stars complete the current roster – 26 current male players, 5 current female players and 2 legends. The male stars include the likes of Federer, Nadal, Dimitov, Monfils and Kyrgios just to name a few. The female roster is made up of Muguruza, Kerber, Wozniacki, Keys and Bouchard, with legends Agassi and McEnroe completing the line-up.
According to Breakpoint Studio, Tennis World Tour is going to be much more open and elaborate than just a character and statistics. Each game you play, you’ll have to have a game plan and use each individual’s skill sets wisely as well as exploit your opponent’s weaknesses in order to get the victory. For example Federer, a notorious slow starter will give you the opportunity to build an early lead before he starts his traditional strong comeback in classic style. Or there’s the Duracell bunny Nadal that will soul destroyingly retrieve everything from the baseline.
Make sure you get your practice in early though as the French Tennis Federation have confirmed they’re going to host a Tennis World Tour eSports tournament in 2018, with the finals to be staged at the Stade Roland-Garros during the French Open! Epic!
