The UFL release date is highly-anticipated among football game fans, as this new game looks to take the fight to EA’s almost untouchable series of FIFA and EA Sports FC games. Developer Strikerz Inc. is promising big things, and players are keen to see if UFL lives up to the billing.
UFL has been in development for quite some time now – Strikerz reportedly started work on the project in 2016. However, there’s still a lot to learn about this upcoming soccer sim. With the likes of West Ham, AS Monaco, and Sporting CP all signed on to be licensed clubs, and some brief endorsement from iconic footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, things are already looking promising.
Here’s everything we know so far about the UFL release date, gameplay, and more
UFL release date Rumours
According to a tweet from Strikerz, UFL is set to release in the second half of 2023. We don’t have a concrete release date just yet, but the game was delayed as the team focused on upgrading the AI and core mechanics.
According to the latest update in August 2022, the game is about 80% ready, so it shouldn’t release too far into that window. Releasing in the late summer would also see it drop just before the annual instalment of FIFA (which this year will be dubbed EA Sports FC), which usually comes out at the end of September/ start of October. Alternatively, Strikerz may decide to wait until the very end of 2023 to also clear that EA Sports FC release date.
Strikerz finally revealed some UFL gameplay during its First Look live stream which showed off what you can expect from the game. We also got a look at how it aims to differentiate itself from FIFA/ EA Sports FC. You can check it out below.
From what we have seen, it looks a lot like what you would expect from a football sim. It’s all in-engine footage and showcases some impressive graphics and character models, and the pacing looks to be similar to that of PES/ eFootball, rather than the faster-paced action you see in EA Sports titles.
The curtain rises and there are no empty seats: everyone is ready to enjoy another masterpiece📽️
