There will be a solo mode, a local cooperative mode, and online multiplayer modes, as well as more challenges and goals.

"The original two games had a meaningful impact on gaming and the entire sports genre. We took what we all knew and loved from the original titles and mixed them with enhanced creative tools," explains Jen Oneal, studio head at Vicarious Visions.

From a graphics perspective, expect 4K gameplay running at an outstanding frame rate of 60 frames per second (FPS).
