Apple Arcade introduces ‘Ultimate Rivals’ sports game

"Ultimate Rivals", developed by Bit Fry Game Studios, Inc., brings together athletes from hockey, basketball, soccer, baseball and football.

The game's first title is 'Ultimate Rivals- the Rink which gives you access to 50-plus athletes for 2-on-2 matches. The Rink is 3v3 hockey where you can play as sports stars from several other sports. Each player character brings his or her own unique talents to the ice, and different combinations of players will unlock unique ways to play.

"We are tearing the sports video game control system and writing it again for a new generation".

This week, we're taking a look at Apple Arcade's new gaming franchise, Fortnite maker Epic Games calling out the Google Play Store for its monopolistic practices, Android's new AR features, Disney+'s one-month app footprint, and more. Injecting fresh blood into Apple Arcade, Bit Fry Games Studio announced a new Ultimate Rivals: The Rink game that is also the beginning of a new breed of sports games. Apple Arcade has been bereft of sports activities video games and particularly bereft of licensed sports activities video games.

La Blaugrana surrendered a 3-0 first leg win at the Camp Nou to lose 4-0 to Liverpool at Anfield in last season's semi finals. The Argentina captain has made 15 appearances across all competitions and scored 14 times this season.


Apple is adding the "Ultimate Rivals" series on the Apple Arcade platform.

While licensed sports games have been around for years, Ultimate Rivals represents the first time a studio has combined licenses from all player unions and four leagues into a single gaming franchise. Bit Fry Games and Apple make no expense to constantly remind readers and gamers that these are officially licensed appearances and names, so you can be assured the game won't suddenly disappear due to lawsuits. "& # 39; Ultimate Rivals: The Rink & # 39; is a great addition to ‌Apple Arcade‌ and we are excited for everyone to try it". And since it's an arcade-style game, there are also special moves that you can build up over time, each of which are based on the athlete's original sport.

Players can challenge the AI or engage in multiplayer matches, and the game provides stylized futuristic visuals that look like something out of TRON, with smooth 60 fps graphics so things keep moving smoothly. Short-session games with arcade rules increase the accessibility of the game, while delivering deep fun and an experience where the most skilled players have the best chance to win. Bit Fry has secured groundbreaking licensing agreements with nine major professional sports organizations, including the NHL, NHL Players' Association (NHLPA), NBA, National Basketball Players Association (NBPA), MLB, MLB Players Association (MLBPA), NFLPA, Women's National Basketball Players Association (WNBPA), USWNTPA, as well as Wayne Gretzky.
