UFL is an upcoming free-to-play football sim game that hopes to compete with the likes of FIFA Football series, and to a lesser degree perhaps, with eFootball (previously known as PES). The game was first revealed at Gamescom 2021 and showed off some pretty impressive visuals, supposedly from the game engine, as well as little glimpses of gameplay.
Now, UFL has just announced their next ambassador, Belgian star forward Romelu Lukaku. The Chelsea striker is a major get for UFL as his name and brand will definitely lend a lot of credibility to the game. The football sim market, for a while now, has been dominated by EA and FIFA, but as of late, it seems the throne might be up for the taking.

The gameplay reveal for UFL is scheduled for 27 January 2022, and the game is set to come out on all major consoles. While details are sparse at the moment, there is a sizeable amount of interest in the upcoming free-to-play football sim. Mainly because there seems to be a vocal majority of FIFA Football fans that feel that the free-to-play model might suit the franchise better at this point.
eFootball hoped to fulfil that demand with a free-to-play offering of their own but a lack of polish and production value kept the game from swooping up dejected FIFA Football fans. EA has some trouble brewing of their own in the FIFA camp as the publisher suggested that they might eventually drop the FIFA brand name from the series going forward citing licensing issues with the football organization.
If it all goes to plan, UFL will look to offer a level of quality similar to EA’s football sim franchise but in a free-to-play model. It will be interesting to see if developers Strikerz Inc. are able to deliver on their promise and deliver a quality free-to-play football sim.
