Aggressive tackling, mesmerising flicks and scorching goals are guaranteed as Acclaim Entertainment Ltd announces the launch of Urban Freestyle Soccer. Developed by Silicon Dreams, this action-packed four-on-four football feast encompasses everything that's great about the beautiful game by taking it back to the streets and combining silky skills with hard-edged extreme rules to deliver end-to-end, arcade-style action. Urban Freestyle Soccer will be released in Autumn 2003 on PC, PlayStation2, Xbox and Nintendo GameCube.

Urban Freestyle Soccer returns to grass roots and allows rival gangs to gain respect and supremacy in urban environments. Jumpers and oil drums replace goalposts and rules are well and truly left on the sidelines as the pitch is transformed into a battleground for the duration of the match. No offsides and limited boundaries ensure flowing gameplay and fierce, frantic competitive matches.

"Urban Freestyle Soccer will offer a great alternative to the traditional football game and will appeal to a much wider audience," commented Ned Browning, Brand Manager, Acclaim International. "There has never been a football game which takes the best from park soccer and combines it with the raw energy and skill which is seen every day on the streets around the world. Urban Freestyle Soccer will deliver the ultimate arcade football experience ever – with innovation which will revitalise the genre."

Urban Freestyle Soccer features an intuitive control system which will enable players to perform the ultimate 'showboat' tricks, flicks and volleys the likes of which are only ever witnessed by the world's elite players. By mastering the combo system, back-heels, juggling and scissor kicks can be added to the players' repertoire offering precision control and deadly accuracy in front of goal. Newcomers will instantly feel at home with a perfected control system which responds immediately and accurately to the players' commands.

Urban Freestyle Soccer features five gameplay modes including Turf Wars, Home Turf and Street Challenge Cup and allows gamers to choose from 16 teams from around the world. Urban Freestyle Soccer offers many exciting features, including a combo system which earns skill points for team upgrades, mini games and hidden rewards to increase longevity. The game provides an intuitive control system, allowing players to develop their skills as they progress through the game.

Urban Freestyle will be available autumn 2003 for PlayStation 2, Xbox, Nintendo Gamecube and PC.
