What if we told you there is a new football game that has 13,000 FIFPRO-licensed, real-world footballers to unlock at no cost? Yep, no saving up to buy Ultimate Team packs, no hidden microtransactions, nothing. If we have your attention so far, you may want to check out Sociable Soccer 24.

Jon Hare, the mastermind behind the renowned Sensible Soccer franchise, is back in the game and he’s not holding back any punches. Nearly 30 years ago, the infant FIFA franchise used its colossal marketing might to topple Sensible World of Soccer, labelled as the most influential European-developed game ever by Stanford University in 2006. Now, Hare has returned to the football gaming world with a clear mission: deliver unmatched value and take on the big leagues with Sociable Soccer 24.

“While big brands like EA Sports FC are inadvertently shaping children into gamblers with their overflowing loot boxes and money traps, our game stands apart. We’re offering pure arcade football filled with genuine enjoyment at a fraction of the cost. Plus, players can unlock a massive roster of 13,000 FIFPRO licensed footballers without spending a penny,” expressed an impassioned Hare.

The designer continued his bold stance against the dominant forces in the gaming industry: “Our adversaries might have their $200 million marketing arsenals and hyper-realistic graphics, but we outshine them in terms of both affordability and gameplay.”

A Challenge to EA Sports

“I might not be the bragging type,” Hare said with a mischievous twinkle, “but I’ve spearheaded a #1 football game across four different decades. It’s only a matter of time before Sociable Soccer climbs to the pinnacle. Although the series has been both a financial and critical success, my endgame is different. I aim to reign supreme, overshadow FIFA, and settle scores with EA once and for all.”
