Summary: Blitz The League, a new, unlicensed videogame exposing the harsh realism and troubling, behind-the-scenes stories of a fictional professional football league. Blitz The League has been developed at Midway's Chicago studio in collaboration with a writer from ESPN's controversial "Playmakers" TV series. Blitz The League goes behind the glitz and glamour of the game through a revolutionary campaign mode that explores the on-field violence, off-field fallout and front-office politics of professional football. Blitz The League features a powerful story mode that, for the first time ever in a football videogame, explores the realism, lifestyle and drama found in professional football. Players take the helm of a downtrodden football franchise and retool the players and coaching staff in a quest to guide them to the league championship. Additional features include intense multiplayer action with head-to head online play and complete customization of players, teams, stadiums and more. [Midway]
