UFL is an upcoming football game from Strikerz Inc. and an open beta session is scheduled for early June. Here’s how to play and pre-load the open beta.

UFL is a free-to-play rival to EA FC 24 and eFootball, featuring Cristiano Ronaldo as its primary investor. It will have other real footballers as well, just like EA FC, along with skill-based gameplay and realistic club management.

Before the game gets officially released, you can play an open beta session to get a taste before the final iteration of the game comes out globally.

So, here are all the details you need to get started with the UFL open beta.

UFL open beta start and end dates

The UFL open beta opened up on June 7 at 12 UTC and will end on June 9, 2024.

The game went live on June 7 in the following time zones. 1 pm BST / 8 am EDT / 5 am PDT. As noted earlier, it’s a two-day event.

UFL open beta platforms

The UFL open beta is available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S only. There’s no news of any test sessions for PC at the time of writing.

How to download beta

To download the UFL open beta, simply:

  1. Head over to the store page of your PS5 or Xbox Series X|S.
  2. Search for UFL.
  3. Choose the ‘UFL Open Beta’ build and click A or X, depending on platform, to download the game.

UFL’s preload size is 28.23 GB on PS5 and 21.19 GB on Xbox consoles.

All game modes

Players can access both the main online and offline local match modes during the open beta weekend.

In the main online mode, you can compete against other players online after creating your own football club with FIFPro-licensed players. The more matches you win, the more in-game resources you’ll earn.

The offline mode will be local only where you can compete with your buddy on a single console. UFL is yet to release fully, and once that happens, it will have more features than the beta.

Additionally, players will be able to check out the game’s market, customize their club, as well as buy player skins for already-acquired players.
