Early Access Game

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to gather community feedback so we can make improvements and changes to the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“10 months. We plan on shipping in Q1 or Q2 2023 along with a console release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Online multiplayer. Full-motion VR game mode. Performance optimizations for console launch.

More Animation:
10x the number of existing animations need to be added, including better hand animation.

Online Leagues:
Meet other players online to create and play in custom leagues where you play ranked matches to climb up the leaderboard and become an online season champion. Features include trades, injuries, a commissioner, team stats, player stats, a sports complex where you can hang out with other coaches in the league, exhibition matches and multiplayer practice mode. Bring your local co-op friends online with you.

Enhanced RPG Mode:
In RPG Mode you complete player quests and coach challenges to improve or boost your player’s stats and increase your team’s league value, making trades easier and ultimately making that dream team possible. As you play you unlock new quests to get access to new free agent talent, appear on Monday Morning QB TV shows and viral videos. Ultimately play to win the league championship. Then, in the off-season, negotiate contracts, do the off-season talk show circuit and get ready for the draft. Press conferences will be interactive.

Enhanced Physics:
Eventually you should be able to wander around the stadium, interact with fans and get into a Malice at the Palace type situation.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Football Simulator is a unique physics based football game where you can struggle through and break tackles for first downs, juggle tipped passes and make diving interceptions. You can also be the cinematographer and create your own videos using the replay system.

In the RPG Season Mode you play as the coach of your team. Explore a huge sports complex. Collect new playbooks. Build your dream team with editable rosters and Fantasy Draft. Play RPG Season Mode with up to 3 friends local co-op (online coming soon).

Play local multiplayer or online through Steam Input / Steam Home Streaming (TBD). Online multiplayer is in development. In-depth modding system for rosters, jerseys, teams, players and more.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to ship Early Access at one price and then as the game gets new features increase the price to reflect the new features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We want to practice heavy community driven development.

We have set up a Discord server here for Football Simulator:
https://dsc.gg/footballsimulator

We plan on having weekly community playtest sessions where we all play and stream the game and take playtest notes for improvements.

We also want regular community polling for most important needed features.

The game is also moddable and we hope people create new mods with the kinds of game tweaks and content they would like to see.”
