EA has developed a brand-new mobile game 'Tactical Football' to offer a new gaming experience to football fans.

The title is a turn-based strategy game as you look to outwit your opponent with your tactical nous.

What is Tactical Football?

Google Play has summarised the game in their store, and stated the following:

A fresh new turn-based experience that no longer requires real-time reaction and endless practice.
Build your Ultimate Team with players you like, analyze the field, strategize your moves, and have heated matches with other players!

Take part in time-limited matches and Drills that allow you to gain valuable training experience to level up your players and team.
Teach your players new skill moves and stun your opponents on the field.
Watch these skill moves in dynamic cut-scenes triggered by your strtegic play.

By the looks of it, we can expect a cross between FIFA Mobile, Ultimate Team, and Football Manager!

Release Date

A beta version of Tactical Football on Android was officially released on Friday, 27 May.

There is no official release date for Tactical Football just yet, but pre-registrations are already underway.

This should mean that, if everything goes smoothly, a release date should not be far away.
