CyberSports are proud to announce the imminent release of
Striker Superstars, their all new browser-based 5 a-side football
experience. Utilising the Unity Technologies game engine,
Striker Superstars is both PC and Mac compatible.
You can play alongside strangers or friends in fast paced five
a-side football action. If they register with their email
they will be able to develop their character further by training
their stats, equipping items and unlocking achievements through
their performance on pitch.
These achievements reward the player with far more than bragging
rights and a pretty graphic. Each time a player unlocks an
achievement they receive a token which can then be used to upgrade
any of the items in their inventory.
The game uses the current 5 a-side match engine from Football
Superstars, but has been adapted it to work outside of the FS game
client and allow for immediate and highly accessible gameplay.
One of the greatest benefits of the new game is that it greatly
enhances accessibility. There is no big client to download
and install. Technical requirements are so minimal that
practically anyone with a computer and an internet connection will
be able to play and what’s more you don’t even have to
New players can log in as a guest and experience match play
within seconds, but if you wish to chat with your fellow players
and save your character’s progression then you’ll need
to register an account.
Two Games, One Family
The release of Striker Superstars does not signify a departure
from Football Superstars. To the contrary Striker Superstars is
there to complement Football Superstars, not replace it.
Players who want to take their experience further and experience
larger matches of 7 and 11 a-side, as well as joining persistent
Player Managed Clubs can only do so via Football Superstars.
Meanwhile, players of Football Superstars will be able to jump on
and play with friends who would not otherwise be able to take part
and grab some quick games during free time or their lunch
