Christmas has come early!
I think i'm in love!
Screenshots can be found on the TruBlu website. They don't look great, so I'm assuming they are from a very early build of the game. Perhaps Ross can confirm?
yea Ross.....Please tell us the screenshots are from an early build last gen console
Career mode AND be a pro mode! Just that alone has exceeded my expectations and has made me happier than words can describe Big Grin cannot wait to see this in action and the dynamic tackling/struggle tackle sounds very very promising

(slow clap) well done Bigant and well played, this indeed is personally my most anticipated RL game, hell most anticipated game in general to date Smile

I have a thousand questions but will watch this space for more information In the new year
Really hoping the graphics improve ATM they aren't looking great
Judging by the fact that ball in the screenshot has nothing on it and the jerseys have no numbers in the Storm screenshot I think it's safe to say the screenshots are very old. They look like PS2 screenshots, so I wouldn't be getting too upset over them.
I stand corrected Ross, above the screenshots it says 'early beta screenshots'.
Given the kit and the ball textures are to be finalised and the player models are just what are in the fan hub I think screenshots are ok and appreciate that we actually got some..

Kickoff and stadium in particular look like the truest reflections of the game and the time spent on the fan hub gives me confidence that the game will look good on my ps4 and pc
