It was announced around this time last year that the FIFA and eFootball series' would be getting a free-to-play competitor on Xbox in the form of UFL, and since then we've been keeping a close eye on its development progress.
Fortunately, the team making the game are being really transparent in terms of providing updates, which means we've been treated to bunch of raw gameplay footage — even though that footage is very much in a work-in-progress state.
In the YouTube series that the team is currently embarking on, we've had glimpses at everything from the stadiums to the game's UI, and in the video above, you can see a lot of actual gameplay between two players on one console.
It's evident from this footage that UFL is not ready for public consumption yet — the last bit of the video shows many of the bugs the team are still dealing with — but without a doubt, there's promise here. The fact that the developers are keen to be so transparent with the fans during this process is definitely an encouraging sign as well.
There's no release date for UFL yet, but look out for it on Xbox hopefully sometime later this year.
What do you make of this UFL footage so far? Let us know down in the comments below.
A refreshing way to show your progress as a games developer.
In its current form, it looks like a FIFA clone. The ping-pong passing has already turned me off.
I'll give them benefit of the doubt though, happy there is some competition in this space.
Was some of that sped up lol...looked way way to fast
Only thing I don't like about it is it is essential just going to be full of micro transactions because its a free to play model and obviously as a result on competitive online play only. It's like football games don't think anyone want a decent single player or local multi player experience anymore and it's all about getting you to pay for virtual items that will be redundant the following year.
I'm glad to see more competition in the genre after a generation or so of FIFA being the only football game in town. Of course the rebirth of PES was an abject failure, and this and the eventual "New FIFA" are unknown factors.
@PhileasFragg the new FIFA will still be FIFA in all but name. Competition is obviously healthy so I hope UFL doesn’t disappoint.
Why can't any video games get passing right. They are passing to each other at 150mph with no backlift at all. It's what makes it looks so gamey and unrealistic.
What’s so special about this to buy over FIFA? It’s not that I don’t think it looks good but there needs to be something that stands out to be worth going for.
Too arcadie for me, a footie game has to be realistic.
