For football lovers who want new games to experience the thrills of being on the field, good news: a new football simulator, called Football Player, arrives in 2023. For which platforms? We do not know! What will the value be? We do not know! Will it have official teams and real players from licensed teams? We don't know either! For now, the certainty is that it will be released in 2023 and will be made on the Unity engine.
The announcement was made through a publication in the Twitter and the official pages on Discord and Instagram were newly created, with little information. Most of them are in a post about Questions and Answers made on Twitter and give you an idea of what to expect.
Football Player arrives in 2023, but what else do we know about him?
For starters, the game is expected to be released on all platforms, PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and Mac. Considering that it would have been nearly two years since the launch of the new generation, it seems unlikely that the game reach Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. However, it's not out of the question yet.
The price will be around US$15 or US$30, which indicates that it will be a relatively cheap game by today's standards (a major release or triple AAA game usually costs around US$60 or US$70).
We also already know that the game won't be an arcade-style game like Konami's eFootball or EA's various Fifas. It will be a game more focused on management and decision making, allowing the player to make their lineup and other choices, but without actively “putting their feet on the field”. According to the developer's posts, it is also understood that it will not be possible to review strategies in real time and that not everything will be under the coach's command (just like in a real game, players also make their decisions and take advantage of opportunities, even if this deviates from what was established by the coach before the match).
As for the official teams, we don't know yet if they will be in the game either, but considering how bureaucratic and expensive the process is, it's very likely that the game won't invest in it. Several football teams seek to decentralize from FIFA and negotiate their values individually, making it complicated and expensive for game companies to maintain contracts with all clubs and athletes. Even EA recently is considering abandoning the FIFA brand and just call their games EA Sports next year.
