Microsoft has sent us an email reminding us that the free Kinect Sports: Season Two Challenge Pack #1 (sponsored by Braun. Honestly) is now available to download and has been since yesterday. Offering up six additional activities - that's one for each of the game's sports - the Challenge Pack adds new challenges to both Quick Play and Challenge Play.
Here's a breakdown of what the free Challenge Pack #1 consists of:
- Darts: Smart Shot – Exercise the brain and throwing arm simultaneously with “Smart Shot” for Darts. If hitting the bulls-eye wasn’t challenge enough, try competing against the clock with mathematical puzzles that require a sharp mind and even sharper aim.
- Golf: Champion Chip – “Champion Chip” for Golf takes the short game to a new level. Chip shots become increasingly challenging from different surfaces, distances, and with natural obstacles like wind steering the course.
- Skiing: Cool Ringings – Swoosh down the slopes with a license for speed, dodging mascots and ringing the cowbells for extra points in “Cool Ringings” for Skiing. Five different courses help players build their ski legs just in time for ski season.
- Tennis: Rapid Returner – Breaking a sweat is easy with “Rapid Returner” for Tennis, where mascots serve up a variety of zingers at increasing speeds to the forehand, backhand, net and baseline. If you’re looking for the ultimate Tennis training game, grab your racquet for and get ready for action.
- Baseball: Frantic Fielder – Oil up your mitt and get ready for action! “Frantic Fielder” for Baseball gives all new meaning to playing catch. Fielding an endless stream of balls from a line-up of mascots tests everything from hand-eye coordination to speed. The more you catch the harder it gets – three misses and you’re OUT!
- American Football: Crazy Kicker – As the star kicker in “Crazy Kicker” for American Football, you’ll discover the challenge of making a 40-yard field goal with all eyes watching. Account for factors like distance and wind to line up your shot perfectly and score! The crowd and mascots will cheer you on with every amazing goal.
Kinect Sports: Season Two will be getting free add-ons every month until spring 2012, keeping you on the field, in the game and so on. Check out new Kinect Sports: Season Two Challenge Pack #1 screens below. You can add it to your download queue here. It's free!
