Four New Sled Shred Screenshots Unveiled-1.052009-11-25 13:50:10Maura SThe best thing about winter sports games is that you can enjoy all the thrills and spills associated with hurtling down a frozen cliff-face at breakneck speed from the warmth and comfort of your living room without running the risk of actually breaking any limbs or freezing into an icicle. SouthPeak Games’ forthcoming contribution to this glorious tradition is Sled Shred, a downhill sled racing game in which players get to use all manner of objects to hurtle downhill, ranging from tubes and toboggans to discs and bobsleds, with the ultimate aim of competing in the World Winter Games. SouthPeak has just released four new screenshots today featuring the stars of the game, the Jamaican Bobsled team, in action.
“We are very excited to bring this unique racing experience to Wii with Sled Shred,” said Richard Iggo, VP Marketing, SouthPeak Games. “A sledding game is a natural fit for Wii owners, and we can’t wait to see everyone using their natural body movements to steer their sleds down those slopes!”
In the game’s story mode, the Jamaican Bobsled team coaches and challenges players as they prepare to take part in the World Winter Games. You get to sled your way down 10 different courses, and can either challenge your friends to a race or race together against the computer in free play mode. For added realism, you can also use the Wii Balance Board as your sled.
Sled Shred is scheduled for release in the first half of 2010.
