As I stated earlier, Maximum Football is built using Unreal Engine 5 and has a heavy emphasis on using physics to create a realistic simulation of football, every tackle, pass, block, and catch relies on a lifelike physics engine to determine the outcome, empowering players to fully control the game.

If you're interested, you can participate in the Beta by heading over to Steam to download it. The developers would love to know what you think about the game.

Maximum Football will be free-2-play when it launches onto Steam Early Access in Q3 2024. You can download the beta now on Steam until June 17th, with the developers asking you to fill out a short survey to provide feedback to them.
