game release date for XONE:
Kinect Sports is back for the next hardware generation with a locker full of new Kinect sensor tricks, a focus on global match-ups and a breathtaking island setting fit to burst with pumped-up sporting challenges. Create your Champion, learn the ropes, pick a side and earn your stripes. The competition out there is virtually endless!
Kinect Sports Rivals opens with a bang as the new Kinect for Xbox One captures your appearance, maximises your potential and unleashes you as a mighty in-game Champion. As soon as your one-of-a-kind athlete reaches the island where all the action happens, where battles both global and personal are fought daily on pounding waves and towering stacks, target ranges and tennis courts, the competition becomes your life.
You'll face off against other Champions from across the globe, either directly controlled by players or competing in their stead (using a playing style remembered by the game itself) while they're offline. Friends, rivals and other intelligently matched challengers line up to be taken on and taken down. Boosting your skill and fame leads to ever greater rewards and opportunities.
Any worthwhile competition requires a strong set of teams, and during this period in its long history, the island is dominated by three continually clashing forces: noble Eagle Legion, primal Wolf Clan and cunning Viper Network. One of the key moments in your Champion's sporting life will be successful qualification for one of these teams. Which one you set your sights on is up to you...
