Turn-Based Strategy Twist On Football Transitions out of Steam Early Access After Three Years.
Kyiv, Ukraine – May 15th 2018 – Have you ever fancied yourself as a tactical mastermind for the beautiful game? If so, Creoteam have you covered with Football, Tactics & Glory, a never seen before strategic take on the beautiful game. After three years in Steam Early Access, developer Creoteam have announced that Football, Tactics & Glory will kick-off with a full commercial launch on Steam on June 1st, just prior to the kick-off of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. In Football, Tactics & Glory the set-up is simple: take the turn-based strategy and tactics more commonly associated with a particular alien invasion franchise and apply it to the game of football. The result is a deep, complex take on the world’s most popular sport.
“If you enjoy the depth of turn-based gameplay, strategy or tycoon games, you will love Football, Tactics & Glory,” said Andrey Kostyushko, Managing Director at Creoteam. “Skipping the boring parts of football management games – the endless tables, numbers, routine and micromanagement, Football, Tactics & Glory, reinvents the basics of the football management genre making it appealing to everyone, not just hardcore football management aficionados.”
You’re tasked with managing a high-flying team that finds itself in the amateur leagues. Only by shrewd tactical know-how will you bring them back to the upper echelons of club football. You’re given 3 goes per turn (although this can rise with the elegant combo system) to man-manage your players to success, all of whom possess unique abilities that can be tinkered with away from the action. There’s a deep, robust campaign system enabling you to buy and train your players over many seasons as well as an on online mode where you can duke it out with friends to figure out whether you’re more José Mourinho or Pep Guardiola.
Football, Tactics & Glory also features some novel Twitch integration. The streaming platform’s chat influences the game with player’s motivations going up when they’re mentioned by the audience. Viewers might also take control of the game through the chat by voting what actions should occur, i.e. shooting, positioning, passing, creating an interesting tension between crowd and player. There’s also a deep face editing system allowing you to craft precisely the team you want to manage.
With a “Very Positive” rating on Steam, Football, Tactics and Glory will leave Early Access on Steam on June 1st and will be available for £15.49 / $19.99 / €19.99.
