Altered State Machine and FIFA have teamed up to launch the Open Beta for AI League: FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Edition on Android today. The mobile title puts players in the management seat where they must form the strongest AI-powered team.
Human players can customize their soccer players’ AI skills as they lead their team of four to the top of the leaderboard. These AI characteristics determine the strengths and weaknesses of their players. Furthermore, players can combine these AI skills, adding an extra layer of complexity and strategy to the game. In addition, players will be able to trade characters in the near future.
“Our teams have been working non-stop to reach the AI League Open Beta launch. We couldn’t be happier that the game is getting into the hands of more players, and we hope they enjoy playing it as much as we enjoyed building it,” Aaron McDonald, co-founder of Altered State Machine and co-founder and CEO of Futureverse.”Our mission is to lead casual gamers into the world of AI gaming in the metaverse, and with FIFA’s AI League, we’re unlocking a unique new opportunity for soccer fans around the world to interact with their favorite sport.”
Altered State Machine and FIFA debuted their partnership with a prediction game ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. In that game, players could win digital and physical prizes for accurately predicting the outcome of real football matches. All fans who entered won four characters for AI League.
Both Altered State Machine (and parent company Futureverse) are rooted in Web3 and metaverse technology. Once the in-game marketplace opens, it will use Web3 technology to enable seamless trading between players.
Android players can join the open beta for AI League Today. The team plans to launch an iOS version soon.
