Ahead of UFL‘s highly anticipated Gameplay reveal, Strikerz Inc. announced a new ambassador for the upcoming football game. This time, it’s Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne. He joins UFL with other Premier League players like Romelu Lukaku, Roberto Firmino, and Oleksandr Zinchenko. All three ambassadors currently play in the English Premier League. Could be a coincidence, or maybe Strikerz Inc. does have a deal with the English top flight. As of now, it’s all just speculation.
“The moment I heard about UFL, I felt it could become the next big thing in online football gaming.” – Manchester City player Kevin de Bruyne.
We expect a few more announcements, like the addition of Kevin de Bruyne to UFL, leading up to the game’s launch. The game continues to grow with new partnerships all the time. Recently, Scottish club Celtic FC and AS Monaco have announced their partnership with UFL, but we don’t have the full details on those inquiries yet.
The curtain rises and there are no empty seats: everyone is ready to enjoy another masterpiece📽️

UFL’s Recent Backlash
In today’s trailer, Kevin de Bruyne performed a beautiful cutback and then shoot the ball into the back of the net. From what we saw, the animation and the model in the trailer looked great. This is important, since Romelu Lukaku’s reveal trailer came under fire from fans who criticized Lukaku’s in-game model. CEO of Strikerz Inc., Eugene Nashilov, defended the trailer on Twitter with a tweet.
Guys, critics accepted. This piece doesn’t represent final quality. And we will get an update for you. Some of the texture quality got washed away by the lighting in the dark scene. Please, spread the word.

Please note that UFL has been in development for a few years. Everything we see including De Bruyne’s trailer is not the final product. However, we won’t have to wait long to see official UFL gameplay. Strikerz Inc. will showcase its highly anticipated gameplay trailer on January 27.
