Talk sports games and usually hear about FIFA, NBA 2K and Madden — but rarely of anything else. The big wide world is filled with a pantheon of popular sports, and one of the many consists of men on bicycles racing down streets. In this sport, winning the Tour de France is the coup de grace. Why? In this race, the top cyclists from around the world come to race their hearts out for the top prize. It is also a place where the infamous Lance Armstrong made his now tarnished name.
With such a strong history behind the Tour de France name, it’s about time a game was made about it. Tour de France 2016 is available right now for download via the Xbox One from the Xbox Store and costs $49.99. Whether or not players will be able to take performance enhancing drugs is still up in the air.
