Ahead of the Beijing Winter Olympics in February 2022 (yes, we are somehow nearly in February 2022!), the team over at Joindots are celebrating this often overlooked Olympic occasion with Winter Sports Games – 4K Edition.
Now available on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One (PlayStation players will have to wait until the 22nd December for this one), Winter Sports Games – 4K Edition may not allow you to play all of the events commonly seen at the Winter Olympics, but the six that have been picked out are real classics.
Firstly, we have Downhill Skiing, which will see you carefully accelerating and braking to ensure a safe but speedy descent down the slope, hoping to see you clinch the gold. Next up is the equally high-adrenaline Luge, which involves some serious button-mashing to see you hit the highest of speeds round the chicanes on the track. Thirdly, and a firm favourite every time the Winter Olympics rolls round, is the Ski Jump where, well, you jump really far on skis!
To complement Downhill Skiing is its more refined cousin Giant Slalom, as tight turns are required to make it through each checkpoint on your way to the finish. Similarly, if you get a bit lonely on the Luge, the Bobsled is another event available on Winter Sports Games – 4K Edition. Finally, and of course you can’t forget the true great of the sport – Curling!
With five difficulty levels to work your way through, the aim of the game here is to claim the gold in every single sport. Or, of course, you can battle against 3 others in local multiplayer, to be the best in the household.
Winter Sports Games – 4K Edition is now available on Xbox Series X|S (fully optimised) and Xbox One for £24.99 – find it over on the Xbox Store, with a release on PlayStation coming on the 22nd December. And if that simply isn’t enough sporting action for you, Joindots also released Summer Sports Games – 4K Edition back in September.
See you on the slopes!
Off to the snow! It does not matter if you prefer to ski, bobsleigh or sled down the ice rink, or relax curling the stones over the ice when curling – there is certainly something for everyone here. There are six exciting disciplines to win tournaments and master challenges. You can play alone or with up to four players on the sofa – and all without a runny nose after the competition!
