Publisher Conspiracy Entertainment has announced the release of Biathlon 2008
for the PlayStation 2, a newly developed sports title which is following up on the apparent sales success of the firm's Winter Sports
With Winter Sports
appearing in a number of recent Amazon.com Wii charts
as a top-seller, Biathlon 2008
comes recommended by biathlon stars Magdalena Neuner, and includes cross-country skiing and shooting as part of the gameplay.
According to the firm, the European-developed game includes the original World Cup and World Championship tracks in Oberhof, Oestersund and Ruhpolding. Apart from original athletes, original tracks and the official rules for the disciplines of Sprint, Individual, Pursuit and Mass Start, Biathlon
2008 also features an extensive career mode.
Sirus Ahmadi, president of Conspiracy Entertainment, said, "Biathlon 2008
is enjoying rapid market acceptance. The excitement of this sports simulation game provides an authentic experience alongside world-class athletes. With Wii: Winter Sports
attracting such a strong following for us, we were pleased to bring to market a similarly thrilling action packed game that lets PS2 owners 'go for the gold' in a Winter Wonderland."
