Over the years, the sports genre was one of the overlooked genres in all of mobile gaming. While shooters, RPGs, and action–adventure games have seen major releases in the not-too-distant past, the sports genre really hasn’t. While companies such as EA and Konami have become popular household names for their stronghold in the sports gaming genre via FIFA Mobile and PES Mobile respectively. there has never been a third name in the industry. Until recently popular Chinese company, NetEase Games announced their first solely developed competitive football game titled Vive le Football. The game is currently undergoing an Alpha Test till 3rd February 2021.
Having the FIFPro License Vive le Football, therefore, boasts real licensed players from the footballing globe. There is authentic use of in-game player motions from motion-captured by real players making them accurate as much as possible. Additionally, the game also boasts the official license of one of Europe’s top clubs in AC Milan.
Step into the shoes of a football manager and manage a football club and watch it slowly turning into world-class. According to the in-game footage from the trailer, Vive le Football provides you a truly free football world that’s more realistic and exclusive. The manager mode Esque gives the game a classic football management simulation feel which is although miles away from the likes of Football Manager or Soccer Manager but is still an amazing attempt.
The game also has a multiplayer mode including a multi-player street game mode that allows the players to jump into a classic three-sided street football experience. Users can show off their street soccer skills and relive the FIFA Street nostalgia all over again. While the graphics feel a lot like Dream League Soccer, the alpha test is only the beginning, and we would be definitely getting a better-looking game on full release
