Cybersports And Monumental Games Announce Football Superstars And Promises The Most Realistic Football Game There Has Ever Been

London, UK. 3rd May 2007 - CyberSports today announced its arrival as the industry's newest and most innovative games publisher. CyberSports' mission will be to publish world-class global, massively multi-player online (MMO) sports games using leading-edge technology.

Malcolm Clark, CEO of CyberSports, simultaneously announced details of the company's first title, Football SuperStars, which promises to deliver a unique football game experience. Football SuperStars is being created in collaboration with Nottingham based developer Monumental Games, led by former Climax Online Studio Head Rik Alexander.

An online MMO game for the PC, Football SuperStars will allow players to meet within a utopian soccer-styled virtual world and take part in 3, 5, 7 and 11-a-side football matches. Players will take control of a single footballer and will interact on and off the pitch living the football superstar lifestyle whilst pursuing fame, glory and success, striving to join the best clubs, compete at the highest level and progress within the game through skill and sporting prowess. The player will exist in a persistent football-themed world and be able to join or form and manage their own teams and careers whilst engaging in various leagues, competitions, events and tournaments.

"The MMO is the perfect platform for team sports games," said Malcolm Clark, CEO of CyberSports. "This is the focus that has enabled us to bring authenticity and real competition to a football game for the first time, by playing against real people instead of AI. Participants pit their skills against those of others in an MMOG where everyone knows the rules. Breath-taking design, a brilliant team and world-class technology has produced a game with lasting appeal targeted at a huge global audience. We're all big football fans here and it shows."

Rik Alexander, CEO of Monumental Games, added "Football SuperStars will capture both the magic of the beautiful game on the pitch and also to bring football lifestyle elements like fame, fortune and glory to the table. Football already has great communities and fan bases and we're hoping to capture that passion and bring it together in a virtual world where players can literally live, breathe and eat football."
