Explore the Island of Kinect Sports Rivals

By Major Nelson
Louise O’Connor, Rare’s art director, takes us on a guided tour of the “Kinect Sports Rivals” island – the most competitive battleground in the history of the franchise – to show us every corner of this one-of-a-kind place. Watch the video above to learn the ins-and-outs of all the challenges and hazards the island possesses and get a leg-up on the competition.

Louise explains, “The world is not just a beautiful backdrop. It’s made for dynamic and ever-changing competition 24/7. The sports change and adapt as day becomes night, but the pace never slows down. As you reach deeper levels of competition, you’ll be challenged by the environment itself – clinging on through high winds in climbing, and tearing through rough tides in wake racing.” Check out the video to learn more!

“Kinect Sports Rivals” will launch in spring 2014 and will redefine the popular “Kinect Sports” franchise by bringing fan-favorite sports back in re-imagined ways, and delivering new sports, made possible only with Xbox One’s all-new Kinect.
