Octro launches action strategy game ‘Soccer Battles’ globally

Octro has announced the launch of its new game Soccer Battles. Set in a futuristic era, the multiplayer game combines stunning visuals with a unique blend of soccer and action-strategy.  With the launch of Soccer Battles, Octro ventures into cross-genre and global markets as well.

Soccer Battles, a game of ultimate twist of Soccer with a dash of action, is a game to demonstrate strength and skill. The game requires a skillfull use of various characters and powers, in order to win.

Commenting on the new game, Octro CEO Saurabh Aggarwal said, “In the last few years, we have been planning to diversify into different genres at Octro. Our goal was to design a high fidelity gaming IP  with unique toon style locations but with the feel of a normal playing area. We fundamentally wanted to create a real time multiplayer game that has a unique balance of soccer and action. Soccer Battles is a first of a kind game to have solid but simple game mechanics that are not only easy to understand but also provide an engaging gaming experience to our users. We are already witnessing multiple incoming interests in taking this game out of India for international markets”.

Soft launched on  Google Play Store and iOS App Store, the game is set into the future where superhumans have panned wide-scale colonisation, which has led to cosmic bloodshed. So, a soccer tournament to demonstrate strength and skill is played, with the winner bestowed with ultimate glory and the right to inhabit another planet. For the players, the objective of the game is to score maximum points by pushing the ball into the opponent’s area. Players get scored based upon the distance that characters cover with the ball -three points for crossing the first touchdown, five points for second touchdown and 10 points for a goal. In order for a player to battle it out with other players, the player has to form his team with the right combination of superhumans, super-mechs, powers and more.

Octro CMO Manav Sethi added, “The early perception of Soccer Battles has been positive, which has made us believe that the IP has a potential to go global. It has been very well taken and loved by a sweet spot of 10-18-year-olds.”
