Empire of Sports is a Massive Multiplayer game developed by the French company F4. In the game you create and control your own virtual avatar that can play in 11 different sports – Skiing, Football, Basketball, Tennis, amongst others. In this virtual world, you start as rookie and train and perform to reach the higher levels of athlete stardom. You can also create your own clubs (teams) and play full blown competitions with human team members. The idea, it must be conceded, is amazing.
The game world is a city where various areas for sports are defined, there is a central area with administrative and training facilities. You meet guides (NPCs) that teach you each sport, level up by training, nurture your physical prowess, compete in official competions and try to become the top athelete in the world.
Currently, in the ‘prologue’ (beta) phase, the game is free to download and play but has also paid models. Internet connection is required to play the game.
