Maximum Football, the only game that can compete with Madden NFL, has decided to make its future release on consoles and personal computers free-to-play.
Since 2K Games’ most recent venture into a football game with NFL 2K5, EA has held an unchallenged dominant position in the football simulation field. Maximum Football, on the other hand, has been operating on the periphery for the past few years, and it will present alternate gridiron experiences in 2018, 2019, and 2020.
Maximum Football allows players to switch between Canadian, American, and College football modes, which is one of its few praised features. Fans of the sport will have one more reason to participate in the action with the launch of Invictus, the newest offering in the series developed by Modus Studios.
Maximum Football is now available as a free-to-play game.
The video game publisher Modus Games announced today, February 7, that they intend to make Maximum Football 2023 a free-to-play title.
The release date for the simulation on personal computers, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S consoles remains unknown. However, players on Steam can anticipate that the game will join Early Access sometime around the spring of this year.
An introduction trailer was released alongside the news, which teased the inclusion of gameplay, multiplayer modes, and a wide range of personalization choices.
Modus Studios stated in a frequently asked questions section on the Maximum Football website that the transition to a free-to-play model will enable the development team to “improve on the game over time.”
In addition, the frequently asked questions (FAQ) said that the release will not include loot boxes or any other kind of “randomized paid content.”
In terms of the game’s content, potential players may look forward to a mode called Dynasty, which casts them in the role of Head Coach and tasks them with recruiting, drafting, and managing a squad. The Pro Season Mode claims to simulate a real-life professional season, complete with 31 teams vying for the champion title.
In addition, Modus Studios has stated that Maximum Football 2023 will support both local and online multiplayer, and the developer also has cross-platform matchmaking in the works. It is still unknown when additional specifics will become available; however, the Spring release of Steam Early Access should provide a significant amount of further insight.
