We gamers aren’t exactly known for athleticism, but I’m pretty sure I could compete in this year’s Olympics— in video game form, that is. London 2012 is the official video game of the 2012 Summer Olympics, and a series of new flythrough videos released today show how the developers are trying to bring the most authentic experience possible to the game. Just because we can’t all be in the Olympics doesn’t mean we can’t play a game that makes us feel like we are.
For Sega Studios Australia, creating London 2012 – The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games™ was a labor of love; a search for an authentic experience of all the exhilaration and moments of glory that make the real-life games so special. As examples of this passion, the several new flythrough videos demonstrate the developer’s keen eye for detail in design.
The videos below, showing off the main Olympic Stadium and the Velodrome as portrayed in the game, are only two of the several flythroughs released. For more, visit the game’s official website.
