This year’s PLAY Blackpool event starts in two weeks, starts a little more sensible than usual as the spiritual successor to ‘Sensible Soccer’, will make a world debut for the public. The game’s creator Jon Hare will be bringing ‘Sociable Soccer’ a fast paced, revival of the classic football title, to the show with a highly competitive tournament and plenty of Sociable Soccer swag to be won.
This new take on the genre will fully embrace the leap forward in technology since the release of Sensible Soccer over 20 years ago and will launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC with online multiplayer and 3D rendering with multiple camera angles to view the fast paced football action.
Those in attendance at the show will be able to play the game across both days with everyone being invited to take part in ongoing tournaments that will take place at the event. Competitors will choose from over 1,000 teams in 3 minute head to head matches to win Sociable Soccer swag. Jon Hare himself will be overseeing the finals of the tournament as well as taking part in a Q&A session on the Sunday to answer any and all questions from the public.
Jon has said of his latest title “We are delighted to give all of the attendants at PLAY Expo Blackpool a hands on sneak preview of Sociable Soccer, it really is the spiritual successor to Sensible Soccer… Super-fast football fun”
PLAY Blackpool takes place from 30th April – 1st May at the Norcalympia Exhibition Centre in Blackpool with fan favourite Smash Bros, Street Fighter V and Super Mario Kart tournaments as well as expert master classes from Sonic artist Duncan Gutteridge and Pac-Man world record holder Jon Stoodley.
