Blitz: The League exposes the harsh realism and troubling, behind-the-scenes stories of a fictional professional football league. Blitz: The League is being developed by Midway's Chicago in collaboration with a writer from ESPN's controversial "Playmakers" TV series. Blitz: The League goes behind the glitz and glamour of the game through a revolutionary campaign mode that explores the on-field violence, off-field fallout and front-office politics of professional football.

"Blitz: The League is the football videogame that Midway has always wanted to develop given the creative freedom from NFL restrictions," said Steve Allison, chief marketing officer, Midway. "As a result, we've been able to focus our efforts on developing an entertaining sports game that also leverages the controversy of what happens both between the lines and beyond in professional sports today."

Blitz: The League will feature a powerful story mode that, for the first time ever in a football videogame, explores the lifestyle and drama found in professional football. Players will take the helm of a downtrodden football franchise and retool the players and coaching staff in a quest to guide them to the league championship. Additional features include intense multiplayer action with head-to-head online play and complete customization options of players, teams, stadiums and more.
