Mutant Football League isn’t the game (with the similar name) that you remember. It still looks pretty awesome though.
Bone-breaking gridiron battles
Remember Mutant League Football? The game, which launched on the Genesis in ’93 by EA, kicked all kinds of butt. It was based on the sport of American football, but made it hyper-violent and loaded with freaks of all sort. Freaks like the skeleton team in the video above as a matter of fact.
And all that is being played on when it comes to Mutant Football League. This new game from Digital Dreams Entertainment will have most of what gamers loved about Mutant League Football, and then some. Here are some of the details:
- 20 Teams of Monsters & Mutants: Teams are comprised of a wide variety of customizable 3D characters including skeleton Deadheads, sentient BattleDroids, criminal Aliens, bio-engineered Super-Humans, and monstrous Orcs.
- Dirty Tricks, Killer Stadiums, & Gridiron Carnage: Each team has its own set of twisted audibles to devastate the opposition! The playing fields are also strewn with diabolical hazards, booby traps, and debris.
- Grab Friends for Multiplayer Action: Online and offline multiplayer for 2 to 4 players, competitive and co-op. Laugh at friends while crushing them or team-up and destroy all challengers.
Pending Steam Greenlight
Sound good? Then you’ll be happy to hear that Mutant Football League will soon be available for the PC. The game will come first to the PC via Steam’s Early Access platform, though that’s still dependent on Steam Greenlight approval. I have a hard time believing that that won’t happen though. Seeing as the ‘brand’ (even though this is unofficial) is so well known, I’ve gotta believe this is something of a lock.
Assuming that the game is green-lit by fans, it’ll head to Early Access this autumn. That’s not where the train stops though, as Mutant Football League is also planned to appear on the Xbox One and PS4 in Q2 2017, and you’ll be able to pick it up on iOS and Android at some point. No release dates or windows on those versions just yet.
