Ubisoft
Kicks off Pure Futbol in May 2010

Experience the Raw Sensation of
the Soccer Field

Today, Ubisoft announced Pure Futbol,
an entirely new sports brand that is being developed by Ubisoft Vancouver. The
game will be available worldwide in May 2010.

Pure Futbol is a new and unique
vision of soccer video games, emphasizing the intense, physical and spectacular
aspects of the sport. The over-the-shoulder camera and visceral audio
dynamically react to the context of the match, placing the gamer in the heart of
the five-a-side soccer action, as opposed to the feeling of watching a TV
broadcast.

Pure Futbol will include 230 elite
soccer players, 17 international teams, and 17 legendary players. Gamers will
have the opportunity to create their own customized athlete who can progress
through the campaign mode to ultimately test themselves against the world’s best
players in the final tournament. Up to four people can play multiplayer locally
and 1vs1 matches are supported online, along with the inclusion of leaderboards
that allow players to match up to one another and celebrate the pure competitive
nature of soccer.
