Players: You can play with 4 players in the same room and up to 4 players online. Kinect Sports support multiplayer both locally and online, with a mixture of competitive and cooperative play options. In addition, players can also take part in eight sport-based mini-games, or join in the Party Play mode designed to accommodate a larger number of players amassed in the same room, divided into two teams.
In-game purchases are available to unlock more activities individually and in packs.
You will need Xbox Live Gold (must be 18 to create, then configure family accounts for younger players) to play online with Xbox One.
Kinect Sports Season Two is rated PEGI 3 and ESRB EVERYONE because it doesn't include the boxing sports that elevates the age on the other titles.
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.
