Despelote is an interesting PS5 soccer game about people



The 2002 FIFA World Cup was the first time that Ecuador qualified for a major football tournament, and the excitement the country experienced during the qualifying phase has translated into a spectacularly stylish game. Called Despelote, it’s coming to PS5 in 2024. From a first-person perspective, you’ll dribble, pass and shoot the football around town and see what happens when it lands on someone’s feet.

Set in the capital of Ecuador, Quito, you play as eight-year-old Julian. A press release reads: “In Despalot, you’ll spend your time pranking your friends, exploring and getting to know the people around Quito, and of course, a soccer ball on your way through the game’s satisfying physics. You’ll kick the ball around and have first-person control.” It embraces Ecuadorian culture and uses Spanish voice acting, while the stunning art style is based on images taken by developers Julian Cordero and Sebastian Valbuena.
