Ultimate Football League (UFL) aims to go to set itself apart from FIFA by being free to play, which the company see as making it fair to play, with a reliance on skill rather than investing in the best players.
The users will be able to build their own teams using some of the over 65,000 professional players from across the globe.
UFL has partnered with a few football clubs too: West Ham United, Celtic, Sporting CP, Shakhtar Donetsk, AS Monaco, Besiktas and Borussia Mönchengladbach being the most notable, and with a few top players such as Romelu Lukaku, Roberto Firmino and Kevin de Bruyne.

The cinematic trailer reveal for UFL looks captivating. The lighting is great, and if playing the game showcases these touches it would have an edge over FIFA. UFL is powered by Unreal Engine, which we have seen used in many other games including Fortnite and Gears of War.
That long-awaited gameplay preview will be coming on Thursday, 27 January. The reveal will fall within the same week that FIFA 22 players will be getting stuck into Team of the Year. This will be an important moment for the creators, who’ll be showing off a true representation of a game that has been in the works since 2016.
With a lot still unknown about the game it is no surprise to see quite a bit of excitement as the gaming community is becoming frustrated and bored with FIFA and eFootball.
UFL is expected to be released in 2022 at some stage but it is not yet known what gaming platforms it will accommodate.
