Midway Games today announced that Blitz: The League has gone gold and will tackle stores nationwide October 17, 2005, for the PlayStation 2 and the Xbox video game system. As the first story-driven, non-licensed football videogame ever, Blitz: The League is a hard-hitting and fast-paced football experience that immerses the player in realistic action that takes place both between and outside the lines.
Blitz: The League will feature a powerful story mode that, for the first time ever in a football videogame, explores the lifestyle and drama in professional football. Players will take the helm of a downtrodden football franchise and retool the players and coaching staff in a quest to guide them to the league championship. Additional features include intense multiplayer action with head-to head online play and complete customization of players, teams, stadiums and more.
