This event marks a significant milestone in our journey, allowing us to gather invaluable feedback from our community and refine the game as we aim to deliver an unparalleled gaming experience when we launch later this year.”

What Game Modes are Available in UFL?

During the Open Beta weekend players will have the opportunity to engage in the main online mode, where they can compete with fellow gamers worldwide. In this mode, players will be tasked with creating their own football clubs using a roster of real players licensed by FIFPro. As players win more online matches, they will earn valuable in-game resources, which can be utilized to improve and customize their clubs.
