London 2012 Takes A Dip In The Pool

SEGA released some more details around its official game for the Olympics this year. In its newest trailer and screenshots, London 2012 takes a look at what it takes to design a believable aquatics center.

The same details it has shown in the Velodrome are also present here. Clean cut visuals and intensely computer generated imagery create the indoor setting for events such as swimming, diving and more. Everything from springboards to the water-draining mats at the pool’s border are displayed, which adds to the realism of the game.

More notably, the key feature here are the water effects, as this is an aquatic center. A clear brilliance shines off the lights from the spotlights and reflects its nearby surroundings. Additionally, the water slightly distorts the view of its underwater occupants as it ripples from the movement within.

Once again, the game developed by the in-house folks at SEGA Studios Australia shows care in its environmental design.  Its character designs however still look a little like mannequins, but this is still work in progress after all. London 2012 is expected to release in June 2012 for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
