Just in time for the soccer World Cup in South Africa, Ubisoft launches Pure Football.
With the FIFA World Cup only less than five months away, it is no surprise that gaming vendors are already spruiking their latest football games that will be available around about the same time.
Ubisoft’s Pure Football is a new vision of football video games, that is claimed to emphasise the intense, physical and spectacular aspects of the sport.
The over-the-shoulder camera and visceral audio dynamically react to the context of the match, placing the gamer in the heart of the five-a-side football action, as opposed to the feeling of watching a TV broadcast.
Pure Football will include 230 elite footballers, 17 international teams, and 17 legendary players. Gamers will have the opportunity to create their own customized athlete who can progress through the campaign mode to ultimately test themselves against the world’s best players in the final tournament. Up to four people can play multiplayer locally and one-on-one matches are supported online, along with the inclusion of leader boards that allow players to match up to one another and celebrate the competitive nature of football.
