Ubisoft Like Their Football Pure. Sorry, Futbol

Ubisoft Vancouver is hard at work on Pure Football (Pure Futbol for North America, to make it sound a bit fruitier) a brand new sports IP that focuses on "the intense, physical and spectacular aspects of the sport."
Utilising an over-the-shoulder camera, Pure Football is aiming to convey the feeling of being in the centre of a no-holds barred game of football free of rules and referees. Cue intense 5-on-5 matches where presumably punching one another about a bit is positively encouraged if the announcement trailer is any kind of indication.
Pure Football will feature 230 elite players (including Steven Gerrard obviously since he's the star of the trailer), 17 international teams and 17 legendary players in addition to being able to create your own footballing gimp for the game's campaign mode.
Four-player local multiplayer and 1vs1 online matches with leaderboards are also supported when Pure Football launches this May.
