UFL: New football simulation wants to compete with FIFA and eFootball


A new soccer simulation called UFL is on its way. Although there is no gameplay in the first teaser, CEO Eugene Nashilov from developer Strikerz Inc. has already spoken a little about the title.

UFL will be released as a free-2-play game for current consoles. A release for the PC has not yet been discussed. The simulation is developed using the Unreal Engine and is playfully referred to as "Fair to Play". According to the studio, the UFL should focus on the skills of the players. Similar to FIFA Ultimate Team, you build your own team of over 5,000 licensed soccer professionals from all over the world. A partnership with FIFPRO secures the corresponding licenses for the studio. In addition, a cooperation was concluded with InStat, which provides the game with current data and statistics.

UFL Is a New Soccer Game Looking to Take on FIFA's Dominance

UFL is a new soccer game aiming to take on the genre's core games, FIFA and eFootball. It will be available for free on all major gaming consoles.

Announced during Gamescom's Opening Night Live, UFL is a football simulation set up as a global online football league in which 'players will be able to create their own football clubs made up of more than 5000 licensed footballers and compete with other gamers worldwide to prove their skills and climb to the very top of the league.'

It comes from a new studio, Strikerz Inc., which has been developing the game for five years already. The game was introduced as 'Fair to play', with an emphasis on player skill, and no pay-to-win elements. It is being developed in Unreal Engine, and a release date will be announced 'soon'.

“We are football fans and passionate gamers — we have been playing football video games for years and we know exactly what people want to see in a football simulator,” said CEO Eugene Nashilov in a press release. “We want to reinvent football video gaming from the ground up, offering players around the world a revolutionary, exciting and fair to play experience. We can’t wait to share more about the game.”

Players will be rated in-game based on partnerships with sports performance analysis company InStat, and player union FIFPRO is providing player likenesses and licenses.
