Big Match Striker Reveals Its Social Side

3rd August 2010: Supermassive Games TM today announces the fourth in a series of entertaining video trailers for Big Match Striker. This latest video illustrates the social and community aspects of the free-to-play PC download football game, scheduled for launch in late August.

The trailer focuses on one of the most exciting and key features of the game; the community, where Big Match Striker players can meet, challenge each other, set up their own leagues, chat, brag about their success and rub their mates’ noses in it!

The website, acting as the game’s entry point and the home of the game’s community, is www.bigmatchonline.com. The site is constantly updated with the latest news and gossip, keeping players up to speed with the real-life game, as well as encouraging passionate debate and discussion on the forums. Players can set up their own profiles and use the avatar creator to stamp their own personality on the site.

Players can invite their friends to join the game and set up their own leagues. What better way to settle those pub arguments over who’s the real football fan?

“Football is the ultimate social game, whether it's arguing with your mates over who knows most or shouting at the television pointing out the chap in the black may well have questionable parentage. What better way to prove just how much you know than setting up your own league, inviting your mates to join and showing them just who's boss?” commented Supermassive’s Online Publishing Director Geraint Orchard-Bungay

The exciting new title is highly competitive and will challenge all levels of football fans’ knowledge and strategic skills as they battle in one-on-one clashes to meet the game’s main objectives - to win titles and silverware, and attract more fans to their club. Players will need to combine all the skills of chairman, manager, player and fan as the title blends the best in football management strategy and animated trivia games.

The game is currently being tested in closed beta trial mode.
