Football Referee: New Football Video Game Announced

By Tina Chubb - Mar 29, 2011

We have some rather interesting news now for those of you that are getting a bit tired of football-related video games such as the FIFA and PES series and perhaps want something a little different; as Footballtainment has just announced that it will be releasing a new PC game called Football Referee.

According to a recent press release over on the website, the forthcoming Football Referee game – which will be released online and will be free to play – will enable players to take over the role of a referee, and make decisions on scenes that may occur during the course of a football match.

The game will also feature a section called ‘How to Become a Ref,’ which as you can tell by the name provides players with rules and instructions on how to be a referee. The language and gameplay of the Football Referee game, which is said to be based on a trivia system, is quite easy and straightforward.

Some of the key features of Football Referee include the fact that it’s a free to play web-based game, a ‘Be a Ref’ mode, Laws of the Game and the ability to get a referee rating. The game is currently in development, so we don’t have any further details at this stage. Would you play this game, or does it sound boring?

    The game sounds pretty cool in my opinion, quite a change from the usual football games, I don't think I've heard of one where you're playing the role of the ref before.
