Stay on your Feet! All to play for as Sociable Soccer goes for goal on Steam Early Access this October 12th

‘Godfather of Football Games’ Jon Hare re-enters the frame to reclaim HIS trophy

London, United Kingdom – September 28th, 2017 – Legendary football game designer Jon Hare in partnership with “class act” Finnish studio Combo Breaker, today announced that Sociable Soccer, their much anticipated, fast-paced, arcade take on the beautiful game, will launch on October 12th on Steam Early Access. Easy to play and hard to master with a single player campaign mode, classic local multiplayer and online multiplayer available from launch and a 30,000 player card collecting online  team mode in the works.Sociable Soccer is a perfect blend of the instant playability of yesteryear and the power of modern technology.

The team also released a new mini trailer to celebrate the announcement.

“We’re hugely excited to be launching on Steam Early Access. This is the first step towards our vision of a new, truly cross-platform, online and offline football action game,” said Hare, also referencing the console, mobile and various VR platforms to follow. “Steam Early Access will help us to tweak gameplay, introduce more game modes and respond to fan feedback.”

Hare earned his ‘Godfather of football games’ moniker from designing two of the biggest football franchises of the 20th century in Microprose Soccer and the genre defining Sensible World of Soccer, one of the 10 most influential video games of all time according to Stanford University. Faithful to his sports game pedigree Sociable Soccer features over 1,000 club and national teams from around the World, with 67 international football trophies to compete for and lighter friendly game modes including trademark custom teams. Beneath its sleek visual presentation lies a game of significant complexity with pinpoint controls and tactical depth.

Polishing for Early Access Release Date

Hi Sociable fans!

We’d like to give a big thanks to our great fan base for your continuous support during the last weeks since Gamescom. We’ve had a lot of feedback on the game and previews from the show have been great.  We would also like to apologize about the confusion related to the EA release date. Late summer is an English term that can be interpreted on the words for non English native speakers but actually means “summer warmth that goes beyond the summer months” in this context.  Hope that clears much of the confusion!

At the office our team is working on many different things for the Early Access release . Menus, World Mode, tactics, stadium details, crowd and player characters improvements, and many gameplay additions are being inserted.

On the marketing side we are currently looking at a list for sending out preview builds for streamers and media.

Release date on Steam Early Access PC will be – 12th of October!

New discussions about the game are taking place at reddit and at the steam discussion forum. Please go there if you wish to have a bigger discussion about topics of interest. We try to answer most of the posts as well as we can.

A big thanks to all of you who help spread the word about the game out there – we really, really appreciate it!

Stay Sociable everyone!
