Thrustmaster has announced that they are teaming up with the ‘Jean Alesi eSports Academy’ for a project that’s as ambitious as it is exciting: launching a programme that’s designed to give high-performing sim racers the boost they need to reach new heights.
Real support for racing pro players
Sim racers who are selected for this development programme via the Jean Alesi eSports Academy, will be given a true training experience. The training courses will cover the entire range of topics that drivers need: racing strategy, fine-tuning the car settings, as well as mental preparation, physical training, diet, communication, etc., all with the invaluable support of Jean Alesi and Matteo Bobbi, who are key players in the motor racing industry. Of course, one of the main aspects of the project is the equipment used. That's where Thrustmaster has its role to play, with their proven expertise and comprehensive, performance-driven racing ecosystem, that is perfectly in line with the objectives of this new programme.
Drivers who participate, some of whom will be recruited directly from the pool officially sponsored by Thrustmaster, will be treated with the same level of focus as top athletes deserve. Their surroundings will be designed for in-depth immersion in the world of racing, be it virtual or real, in order to maximise their performance.
Winner of “Best of gamescom” and “Best Action Game” at gamescom 2018, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is the next adventure from developer FromSoftware, creators of the Dark Souls series. Carve your own clever path to vengeance in this all-new action-adventure title.
In Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice you are the “one-armed wolf”, a disgraced and disfigured warrior rescued from the brink of death. Bound to protect a young lord who is the descendant of an ancient bloodline, you become the target of many vicious enemies, including the dangerous Ashina clan. When the young lord is captured, nothing will stop you on a perilous quest to regain your honor, not even death itself.
Explore late 1500s Sengoku Japan, a brutal period of constant life and death conflict, as you come face to face with larger than life foes in a dark and twisted world. Unleash an arsenal of deadly prosthetic tools and powerful ninja abilities while you blend stealth, vertical traversal, and visceral head to head combat in a bloody confrontation.
Weighing in at 12.58 GB, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice releases today for $59.99, € 69,99, £59.99, $99.95 AU on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
