by Rainier on April 20, 2018 @ 6:21 a.m. PDT

AO International Tennis offers the most comprehensive feature set of any tennis game ever made, giving players unprecedented control over how they play their favorite sport.

AO International Tennis is the most advanced, customizable tennis game ever produced. It combines fully licensed, photo realistic players with a decade’s worth of historical shot data that enhances their AI so that they play just like their real-life counterparts, right down to shot selection at any given point of time in a match.

AO International Tennis will be the first tennis game to be enhanced with PlayFace, Big Ant’s in-depth character creator software that gives users the ability to create photorealistic likenesses in-game, and put your real face directly in the action through Big Ant Studios’ photogrammetry technology.

The Decal Creator allows players to experience Comprehensive Clothing and Logo creation giving you the opportunity to be “sponsored” by your workplace or favorite company.

Replicate any kind of tennis fashion that you might have seen right into the game. Download and share your favorite creations through the community, which is continuously growing with player-generated content.

Key Features:

  • PlayFace: Big Ant has always been known for its comprehensive player creator options, but PlayFace takes things to the next level. Through this PC-based companion app, users will be able to take real-world photography of themselves or their friends, and then integrate the faces from those photos onto character models, effectively meaning that through AO International Tennis, a user can put their photo-realistic likeness directly into the game. These creations can then be uploaded to the Big Ant servers and downloaded with full cross-platform support to the PS4 or Xbox One versions of AO International Tennis. This app is completely free to use and is available now, meaning that fans can get themselves on the servers and ready for download from day one.
  • Play Around The World: Play glamorous and prestigious tournaments all over the world on all court surfaces. Take the title in singles, doubles or mixed doubles. Select your favorite player – or play as yourself through an entire career, all the way to #1 and the biggest championships of them all.
  • Play On Hard, Grass Or Clay Courts: Play on your surface of choice; each has a distinct play style and presents different challenges. Master the techniques required for each, and adjust your approach to truly excel.
  • Customize Matches!: Play an epic 5-set Grand Slam final, or play with one of the more experimental formats, like Fast Four, for a quicker tennis game. Or design your own! AO International Tennis is all about customization, allowing you to play your game your way.
  • Venue Creator – Design Your Own Championships: Enhance any mode with custom stadiums created in a unique venue by either yourself or others in the community. From your local courts to a renowned international stadium, the editor allows you to tailor countless elements and share your creations online. Don’t stop at a single court, either; create an entire venue with multiple courts. Customize the main, outside and show courts, and create your dream park for hosting a tennis championship.
  • Licensed To Offer A Depth Of Tennis Experiences: AO International Tennis includes plenty of fully licensed players, including Rafael Nadal and Angelique Kerber. Tennis isn’t just about the superstars; you’ll be able to take on some of the future heroes of the sport, such as Hyeon Chung, Naomi Osaka and many more, and follow their heroics through the very biggest tournaments.
  • Career Mode – Play Hard And Reach The Coveted #1 Ranking: Start out as a star, or work your way from the bottom, climbing through the rankings all the way to #1 in the world. There are hundreds of tournaments that occur every year – are you able to replicate the success of one of the great tennis champions to select the right tournaments to play in, and then perform well enough at those tournaments to get the ranking points you need to get into that top 100, then top 50, top 10, and finally #1, playing against the world’s best?
  • Logo And Clothing Creators – Look Great As You Play: Comprehensive clothing and logo creators allow you to be “sponsored” by your workplace or favorite company.
