Last year it was announced UFL, the first alternative would be that he wants to stand up to FIFA Y eFootball in the football simulation genre. Like the latest Konami title, the developer Strikerz Inc has opted for Unreal Engine technology and a free model, an aggressive decision to attract players. They have finally shown the first gameplay.
UFL, which will launch this year on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, promises that in addition to free to play to be fair to play -a fair game-, that is, players will have matches against opponents of similar ability. During the presentation you could see the gameplay and some familiar faces, including Cristiano Ronaldo to be one of the five ambassadors from UFL along with Oleksandr Zinchenko, Romelu Lukaku, Roberto Firmino and Kevin De Bruyne.
“At Strikerz Inc we have great respect for everything that has been done in football video games for years,” said studio CEO Eugene Nashilov. “But at the same time, we feel that the community has desired a change. Our goal with UFL is to create a game that is immune to the issues that block progress in the genre.”
Strikerz has signed agreements with several European teams, although we do not know how many there will be in the end. The officers at the moment, among which there is none of the Spanish LaLiga are the following:
- AS Monaco (Francia)
- Besiktas JK (Turqua)
- Borussia Monchengladbach (Germany)
- Celtic (Scotland)
- Rangers (Scotland)
- Shakhtar Donetsk (Ucrania)
- Sporting CP (Portugal)
- West Ham United (Inglaterra)
“We’ve paid a lot of attention and respect to these collaborations because in our case it’s not just about representation. You can call it the way UFL of doing things, but we believe there are better alternatives to simply buying a license. Our goal is to give players of UFL another level of connection between clubs and their fans. We will continue to reveal and sign partners from all over the world, stay tuned for updates and news during 2022“.
Although it is in the final stages of its development, Nashilov assures that the release date will be communicated when they are ready, but the video ends with 2022.
