Tower Studios in partnership with Finnish studio Combo Breaker has announced that Sociable Soccer will launch in summer 2017 on Steam Early Access with Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and mobile platforms to follow. Sociable Soccer has also been confirmed for Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR; however no date is currently in sight for the virtual reality (VR) editions of the videogame.
Sociable Soccer is the spiritual successor to Sensible Soccer, a 1990’s classic series which saw multiple releases on Amiga, Atari ST, Amiga CD32, Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES), Game Boy, SEGA Mega Drive, Atari Jaguar, SEGA Mega-CD, SEGA Game Gear, SEGA Master System, Acorn Archimedes and many more formats. VRFocus has been hands on with both the Samsung Gear VR and Oculus Rift editions of Sociable Soccer.
“Sociable Soccer is a super quick, adrenaline soaked football action game, an unholy alliance of Guardiola’s tiki taka and Klopp’s gegenpressing, where ultra sharp passing and shooting can easily be thwarted by a well timed slide tackle… something like Rocket League in boots”, said Jon Hare, Designer and Director of Sociable Soccer. “After nearly two years in development we are excited to be launching soon on Steam Early Access. The game has a whole world of soccer already in place and online and offline matches are playing like a dream. As we sprint towards full commercial launch in late 2017 we invite gamers and football lovers to become part of our game changing, new sports franchise as we add new features, game modes and updates every few weeks”.
Sociable Soccer promises to deliver easy-to-play yet hard to master gameplay, with single player, local multiplayer, online multiplayer and manager modes all supported. No specific release date has been announced for the Steam Early Access edition of Sociable Soccer, but you can find out more at the official Steam Store page for the videogame. VRFocus will of course keep you updated with all the latest details on the VR editions of Sociable Soccer.
