Electronic Arts announced today that Arena Football has shipped to stores nationwide. Ea promises that Arena Football will deliver fast-paced, high-scoring offense and the ability to send players over the walls. The game is being released for the PlayStation 2 and the Xbox.
“EA is the premiere sports videogame developer and we’re thrilled to have worked with them on this project,” said Glenn Horine, President, AFL Properties. “EA Sports Arena Football captures the passion of our sport and gives fans an opportunity to experience the action for themselves.”
“The AFL was an amazing league to work with and we strived to create a game that accurately depicts their unique brand of football,” said Mike Taramykin, Senior Producer, EA Tiburon. “Arena Football has features that will appeal to both AFL fans and sports fans alike.”
The all-new "Be the Receiver" feature allows players to take control of their receiver right from the snap and create routes on the fly. With the new in-game Telemetry system, players can get real-time information such as scoring history, passing tendencies and player health and fatigue levels. Arena Football features a franchise mode, a create-a-team mode, and over 30 unlockable historic teams.
Arena Football has an MSRP of $29.99 for both console versions.
