Discover all there is to know about the latest footballing sim right here, which is looking to transform the market.
Latest - Game Design Reveal
GOALS has released an extensive game design, outlining the plans for the new game and giving us an insight into what to expect this season.
We already knew the game would be free-to-play, but now we know much, much more!
Features like crossplay have been confirmed, and in-game assets can have a real-world monetary value.
Check out the full GOALS Game Design Reveal.
GOALS remains in its early stages of development and was only announced on 22 July 2021.
So, there’s no confirmed release date as of yet, but we'll keep you updated on any information that drops regarding when you can get your hands on the upcoming release.
The first announcement trailer dropped on the official GOALS YouTube channel on 14 December 2021.
Watch the official announcement trailer below:
Unfortunately, this trailer doesn't offer any insight into the gameplay whatsoever.
However, we expect a new gameplay reveal trailer to drop within the next few months, so stay tuned for that!
The announcement trailer stresses that the game is “esports ready,” so we look forward to seeing what this really means in the coming weeks.
Crossplay will be a big feature for GOALS, with the game able to be played on PlayStation, Xbox and PC.
We think it's pretty safe to say that GOALS will be made available on both previous Gen and Next Gen consoles.
Neither eFootball or FIFA 22 currently have the crossplay feature implemented.
One of the title’s most highly anticipated features is this idea of “free to play”.
eFootball has recently made the switch to become a free to play game, but still includes plenty of opportunities for micro-transactions.
So, the idea of a football sim being completely free to play is something most gamers will be overjoyed at.
What to Expect
GOALS will feature a market similar to that found in FIFA Ultimate Team, with the difference being that all items will totally belong to the player.
The game’s official website states the following:
“Every asset will be fully owned by the player and can be traded freely on an open marketplace. The choice will be easy when comparing GOALS to other football games: experience better gameplay and get rewarded for your time. Play-AND-earn.”
It isn’t just in the game’s free-to-play model that is set to challenge FIFA and eFootball, Goals is also looking to take over the competitive scene.
