CyberSports has announced that a boxed retail version of the MMO, Football Superstars, will go on sale in the third financial quarter of 2009.
The box set will offer gamers a host of new features including the ability to attend a gym, buy licensed products from Puma and Reebok, be interviewed by the press, buy expensive clothes and dine in the best restaurants. Players can also manage their very own teams.
The ‘Premium’ edition will include three months premium subscription, 40 FS Bonds which can be converted into in-game currency, four skills to use on the pitch, a Puma training kit and Puma speed boots, increasing your character’s speed on the pitch
Phil Booker, CyberSports Head of Sales and Marketing, said: “We’re all very excited about the launch of a retail version of Football Superstars. We already have over 300,000 registered users with the free to play version, however by introducing it to a new gaming audience through retail we feel that this will massively benefit the experience for all players. This retail version will also benefit our existing brands and widen our appeal to potential new advertisers.”
The boxed edition will cost £19.99 GBP.
