Yesterday, Nacon and Big Ant Studios released Tennis World Tour 2 in North America. Tomorrow, the game will release on most consoles worldwide. Nestled right in-between the two release dates is a new trailer. Today’s trailer highlights some of the “featurettes” coming to Tennis World Tour 2.
The Tennis World Tour 2 Featurettes trailer dives into some of the new things you can expect in TWT 2. Several of these features, like the court differences and card system, were in the preview build we got our hands on in August. The trailer covers a few things we haven’t seen yet. Tennis World Tour 2’s career mode is pretty much what you’d expect. Recruit staff, seek sponsorships, and improve your custom player throughout your tennis career.
Tennis World Tour 2 Featurettes: Online Play
The trailer has a brief section showing online play as well. As previously reported, players will be able to compete in Quick Play online in both singles and local doubles matches. Emphasis on local doubles matches, because of the way TWT 2’s online works. To load into doubles, teammates will have to share a console.
The trailer highlights TWT 2’s online ranked ladder system. This system deviates from the norm in a few ways. Ranked singles games are played in sets of 10 games. Your promotions are based on how many games you win in that series. Three wins gets you a promotion at the end of the series. Six wins gets you a mid-series promotion, and I bet you’ll feel pretty cool too.
When I got my hands on a preview build of Tennis World Tour 2 in August, there were two features that weren’t in the build that I wanted to try. The create-a-player mode, and a tutorial. For the latter, the Tennis World Tour Twitter account shared a clip from the trailer that clears up most of my confusion with the game’s new timing-based rally system. If the in-game tutorials are like this clip, I have high hopes for the game’s release.
