“We're thrilled to be bringing Championship Manager to Facebook, and in partnering with Square Enix on Rivals we've giving passionate football fans the social football game they've been looking for.” said Richard Barnwell, CEO of Jolt Online Gaming.
“Facebook has become a fantastic social games platform for hundreds of millions of people. Championship Manager: Rivals plays to the strengths of the platform, providing a realistic football management simulation built around players' Facebook friends,” said Ian Livingstone, Life President Eidos. “It is a game that will be a great social experience for both casual and hardcore football fans.”
Launching today, Championship Manager: Rivals will continue to grow and evolve over the coming weeks and months, constantly striving to deliver gamers an authentic and social fun football management experience. With updates planned throughout the summer, gamers will start Rivals with teams from the 2010/11 season.
“We’ve always been looking to bring the Championship Manager series to gamers in new ways, and partnering with Jolt was the obvious choice when it came to bringing Championship Manager to the huge numbers of gamers and football fans on Facebook,” Said Roy Meredith, General Manager Championship Manager. “Rivals really offers something new for Championship Manager and football management fans, whilst also being incredibly accessible for those that haven’t played a football management game before. It gives you, the player, a chance to show all your friends that you really are better than they are.”
