Can you believe it?! Hang on, let me compose myself. Right. College Football is finally coming back to video games after a long-term hiatus.
Since 2013 (when the EA NCAA Football franchise was shut down), fans have been craving the college football experience in a video game form. And, thanks to the brand new studio IMV gaming, you guys don’t have to wait that much longer.
Last week IMV gaming officially announced Gridiron Champions, and more details about the title have been coming out ever since. Let’s get you guys caught up:
- Gridiron Champions will be an unlicensed title. Which means it will have no real Universities or players.
- IMV gaming is getting around this hurdle by making the rosters, teams, stadiums and uniforms fully editable.
- Once you finish customizing everything, you can share your rosters online. This means if you wanted to create official teams and players and post them online, then no one is stopping you. *Wink Wink*.
- Gridiron Champions will also include your typical football game modes, including “legacy mode” where you take control of a team and try to lead them to gridiron glory. A “playoff chase” mode will be included, which looks to recreate the excitement of the NCAA playoffs. And last but least, there will be a “Gridiron Icon” mode, where you create a player and follow them through high school and college.
- Gridiron Champions will be released in 2020, so not long to wait… on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, at the price point of $59.99.
So, does the thought of college football returning to consoles excite you? If so, will you be picking up Gridiron champions? Let me know in the comments down below.
