Expansion #2 Soccer Legends: Universe
Description
Release date: Summer 2015
WHAT IS SOCCER LEGENDS

Soccer Legends is comprised of two elements, a classic manager of football with a few RPG elements, and a turn-based strategic game during the match. Similar to other games like XCOM, where resources could handle in a manager mode and then use it in battle mode.

OUR INFLUENCES

It takes the best facets out of boardgames, like turn-based strategy, well-balanced gameplay, quirky style, 3D environments, and gorgeous special effects, and blends the soul of 90's anime series in a fresh take on the genre.

• Captain Tsubasa
• Final Fantasy Tactics
• Bloodbowl
• XCOM Enemy Unknown

Imagine the gameplay of Final Fantasy Tactics, mixed with atmospheric elements and action style of Captain Tsubasa, the excitement of figuring out what strategy to use in XCOM, with comedic tones and a thriving system like Bloodbowl; that's Soccer Legends.

TURN-BASED STRATEGY MEETS SOCCER

Soccer Legends puts the fate of the entire club in the hands of the player. You'll be able to manage things like tactics and trades to hopefully keep your club toward the top of the standings. Balancing the payment of wages and fees is key. Bankrupt your club and you'll find yourself at a "game over" screen. Your success will take you to different teams throughout your career, to make real Soccer Legends team.

On the field you will have the ability to move players around on the hexigon-based field and make use of over 50 skills to try and score goals. These skills include the obvious and necessary choices like dribble and shoot. Strategy cards can also be deployed, which can affect things like a player's strength or an opponent's ability to use certain skills. Weather and crowd mood can also affect games, much like a real-life match.

So I was a backer of the kickstarter and have been interested in this since I heard about it. Very excited, congratulations on getting greenlit! The pressing question is how soon is "soon"? When should we expect this to enter early access? Also if you want an additional tester, with lots of time on his hands, in the lead up to early access all you have to do is let me know please.
