Mutant Football League physical release with added content gets release date and price

Posted July 3rd, 2018 at 6:45 am

After a long journey that began with a failed Kickstarter, Mutant Football League came out in late 2017 on PC and then followed on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 earlier this year. The game was rough around the edges, somewhat intentionally so, and offered some enjoyment but maybe not the longevity one would hope for. That could change due to additions being made to the game late this summer which were initially announced last month. 

Not only will the game be making it to retailers with a physical edition but it’ll also be coming to the Nintendo Switch all on Tuesday, September 18. The “Dynasty Edition” as it’ll be called will release for $30, which is $5 more than its original price through digital platforms and $10 more than it can be bought for now.

The big addition is the multi-year Dynasty Mode as the game currently only features a basic Season Mode. A developer-written post from early 2018 included some insight into how Dynasty Mode may operate.

These teams will have a very low overall rating when you begin. All of your players will be rookies, and you will have a limited playbook. As you play, your players will gain experience, which you can add and adjust to their individual attributes. So for example, as your Quarterback’s Intelligence increases, so does his playbook. As your players gain experience, they can be upgraded from Rookie to Pro to All-Pro, All-Star and even a Legend. User’s can also customize their playbooks and swap in and out Dirty Tricks from teams they have defeated.

Details on how and when along pricing for the new Dynasty Mode and other content to be offered to those that already own the game have not been provided. Two new teams will be kept exclusive to the retail version while two new races are also on the way.
