We’re extremely happy to see our community growing so quickly. You’ve all been a joy! Welcome to the club! We’ve been hard at work since the last update we posted, which included the first official gameplay trailer. If you haven’t checked it out yet, give it a watch below.
As you likely know, we are planning to run some closed alpha tests very soon. If you’d like to participate and get a headstart in training to become the ultimate football champion, sign up here and join our Discord channel. Oh! Did we mention that there’s a $5000 tournament, too?Grab your friends and get ready to compete!
What can you expect from the Closed Alpha Test?
You’ll be able to explore the first neighborhood, which is mostly inhabited by the working class. There will be a total of 9 neighbourhoods to explore in the game, and each will have diverse offerings and a bunch of unique stories to discover. You’ll be able to see the entire city from a bird’s-eye view perspective. Keep in mind that some areas are still under construction, so you’d best wear a helmet!
Multiplayer matches will take place on a backyard field for this test. Each neighbourhood will have its own football field with differing characteristics, crowds, and time events in the future.
You’ll be able to choose from 4 characters and change their appearances by purchasing clothing from the local store. We’ve added the ability for you to pick your own favorite color for the clothing piece you’re planning to buy. For now, every character will behave in pretty much the same way on the field. The final game will give each one their own unique traits.
We are implementing a ranking system alongside detailed statistics that will offer information about your progression, reputation, and achievements. It’s still a work in progress, so we’d love to hear your suggestions about how we can improve this system, both in terms of the competitive nature of the ranking system and the stats you’d like to see.
Several more improvements have been made based on feedback. Firstly, characters can now sprint! Sprinting depletes stamina, which needs to be managed effectively to ensure it’s available when you need it most. It certainly offers a great bit of strategy. Keep in mind that your stamina also depletes when you have the ball, which we believe will encourage more teamplay.
Also, while we’re on the topic of sprinting, we’re adding some really cool sprinting VFX that can be unlocked. There are plenty to choose from. We want to hear which ones you like most!
We are so excited for the closed alpha test and we can’t wait to hear your feedback. This test is not under any NDA, so feel free to record videos or stream to your heart’s content! Everyone who participates in the early tests will receive exclusive customization content that you can wear with pride. You’ll also be awarded with a special trophy you can place beside the others you will certainly win along the way!
Upon release of the full game, you’ll receive yet another gift in the form of a card with in-game funds on it. You’ll be able to use these funds to purchase clothing or even buy furniture for your apartment. Yup, you heard it right, you’ll be able to buy apartments and customize them in the future!
Before you go, we’d like to ask you for your help. Help us spread the word and invite your friends! With your support, we promise to continue adding awesome new content and improvements and work closely with the community to get things done right.
