Jagex Games Studio has gone World Cup crazy and has updated their popular multiplayer football game, Kickabout League. Jagex has released a number of new features to the game and has announced the first ever Kickabout World Cup tournament, offering players the chance to compete for a framed Brazil shirt signed by Pelé.
The Kickabout World Cup kicks off on Saturday 19th June and players wanting to participate can register on the Kickabout World Cup HQ page
( http://services.funorb.com/m=forum_fo/forums.ws?39,40,34,66588) until June 13th.
In addition to the World Cup tournament announcement the Jagex team has unveiled the following updates to Kickabout:
Exhibition Mode - Exhibition Mode is a new unrated game play mode designed to help you determine the best Kickabout players for your squad. It's like a normal game of Kickabout, but instead of using your own team, you'll use a selection of level 50 players (3 Tanks, 3 Rangers and 3 Hotshots).
Tournament Mode - Now you and up to 15 other people can take part in a knockout competition, comprised of 1v1 games that you can play using your own team, or as an Exhibition Mode game with a team of level 50 players. All players play simultaneously; the losers are knocked out and the winners progress to the next round.
New Statistics – Have you ever left a game of Kickabout and wondered who tackled the most, or how many tackles were successful? Or who scored which goals, and when? Well, we've added a post-game stats menu, showing possession, goals, kicks and tackle information for all players in a game.
New Rating System - We've taken on your feedback about the rating system, and we've added a new rated game option - now you can find an opponent with a similar rating, similar league points or a similar level!
New Achievements – We have added a total of 40 new Achievements meaning that Kickabout now has 73 achievements for you to collect.
