Developer Digital Dreams Entertainment has announced Mutant Football League 2, the follow-up to the Mutant League Football successor released in 2018. Starting life on the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis as a 1993 EA title, Mutant League Football attained cult status, with its violent, fantasy twist on American Football.
The forthcoming sequel will add “even more features, more plays, and more multiplayer” to the Mutant Football League formula, with development leading on new-gen consoles. A “substantially higher level of presentation quality” bolstered by physically based rendering is promised, alongside improved lighting and shadow effects, smoother animations, and a “more advanced collision system”.
You can also expect new ‘Dirty Tricks’ and expanded roles for All Star players, as well as new modes and online options. An eighth player will also be added to squads, so you can have four receivers and more formation options. New hazards and obstacles will also be on the field, with changing mid-match weather conditions. Custom teams, an MFL draft, and a “new and improved” Dynasty Supreme franchise mode, are also in the pipeline.
Offering up violent, 8v8 arcade-style fantasy sports action, Mutant Football League 2 is currently in development for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC, but has yet to be given a release window. For now, you can see some comparison screenshots below.
