A brand new football simulation will attempt to compete with the likes of FIFA and eFootball - and the first gameplay trailer has now officially dropped. You can watch it below:
UFL is a free-to-play experience where the online matchmaking will ensure that players will only go up against those of a similar skill level.
IGN report that 'fair to play' online divisions will be linked by promotions and seasons will take place over a full year.
At the end of that year, a single player will be crowned UFL champion.
Strikerz, who are developing and publishing the game, will focus on the online aspect of the title but they have also confirmed offline play, 2v2 and 3v3 matches, as well as some unspecified special events.
The company have already made a huge statement in making Cristiano Ronaldo its cover star for the upcoming release, while Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne is also an ambassador for the game alongside Romelu Lukaku.
Guys, thanks for all the attention, positive feedback and critics. We will come back soon with updates.— Eugene Nashilov (@styxflows) January 27, 2022

Strikerz CEO Eugene Nashilov spoke about UFL's vision in a recent presentation.
“We at Strikerz Inc have great respect for everything that has been done over the years in football video gaming,” Nashilov said.
“But at the same time, we feel that the community has been longing for a change.
“Our goal at UFL is to create a game that is immune to the issues that are blocking the genre’s progress.”
He added: “We’ve paid a lot of attention and respect to these partnerships, because in our case they’re not just for presentation.
“You may call it the UFL way, but we believe there are better alternatives to club partnerships than just buying a licence.
“Our goal is to give UFL players another level of connection between clubs and their fans. We’ll keep revealing and signing partner clubs from all over the world, so stay tuned for updates and hot topics throughout 2022.”
Nashilov went on claim that the game is in its final stages of development before adding Strikerz will announce the release date when they feel ready.
It is believed the title will be released later this year.
