Look out Sports Interactive, Monumental is kicking about on your turf with a new football MMO.

Football SuperStars takes 3D soccer games like FIFA and PES into the online world, offering players the chance to meet up in a virtual world, create a footballer and train them in a variety of different size matches and tournaments.

Development of the game is being handled at Nottingham-based Monumental, while the game is being published out by new online games company CyberSports.

Rik Alexander, CEO of Monumental Games, commented: “Football SuperStars will capture both the magic of the beautiful game on the pitch and also to bring football lifestyle elements like fame, fortune and glory to the table. Football already has great communities and fan bases and we’re hoping to capture that passion and bring it together in a virtual world where players can literally live, breathe and eat football.”

Monumental isn't the only UK developer hoping to meld online communities and football - Championship Manager and Football Manager creator Sports Interactive announced it would be taking its management game online with Football Manager Live.
