Winter Stars to Shine on Move Later this Year

Posted by James Newton

Deep Silver lining up sports compilation

Sports Champions has a decidedly summery feel to it, and so far fans of cold sports have hardly been well catered-for on Move, with wave after wave of sunny simulations. That injustice ends later this year, with Winter Stars from Deep Silver.

The winter sports compilation covers 11 disciplines: paraskiing, curling, snowmobile, bobsled, downhill skiing, figure skating, biathlon, freeride skiing, snowboard cross, ski flying and short-track. The game will be playable through local multiplayer or online with up to four players, with a single player story mode also confirmed for taking your athlete through up the frosty ranks to become the world's best snow sport champion, presumably.

Deep Silver is planning to launch the Move-compatible game in Quarter 4 2011.


Deep Silver to publish motion-controlled winter sports game for next gen consoles

3rd June, 2011 - Hampshire, UK/... Deep Silver, the games label of Koch Media, a leading producer and distributor of digital entertainment products, announces Winter Stars - a sports game for Kinect™ for Xbox 360®, PlayStation®3 with PlayStation®Move support, and Wii™ including Wii Balance Board™.

Winter Stars entices gamers off their sofas with its high quality and easy-to-learn, exhilarating motion controls. The unique "family mode" allows each participant to choose his or her own individual difficulty level, thus making for a fun multiplayer experience with even chances for everyone. In single player mode, Winter Stars offers a campaign full of variety that allows players to experience all aspects of an athlete's career.

This new title will be a breath of fresh air for the genre, enabling sports fans of all ages and abilities to compete with one another or against virtual opponents in no less than eleven disciplines: paraskiing, curling, snowmobile, bobsled, downhill skiing, figure skating, biathlon, freeride skiing, snowboard cross, ski flying, and short-track. In thrilling multiplayer action, up to four players can engage in dynamic online or offline competitions for championship titles, or simply enjoy the variety of winter sports themed mini-games on offer. The story-driven single player mode not only features an extensive career system and character development, but also a number of special challenges such as training sessions that provide arcade-style enjoyment in between events. Console athletes can use the experience points they earn to purchase new equipment and improve their skills in preparation for the diverse challenges ahead, and to support their team on its path to victory.

Deep Silver plans to release Winter Stars in the fourth quarter of 2011 on Kinect for Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 with PlayStation®Move support, and Wii.

Trying to emulate that number of sports for all 3 systems seems like a recipe for a very mediocre game. I'm hoping I'm wrong. I guess having just 4 or 5 solid representations (if one of those is curling!) could make this a purchase-worthy game if it's not a full $60 release.
