For a long time, football games focused on the games in stadiums with teams and teams from around the world are facing common in sports games. With FIFA Street, EA Sports has managed to take the game a little more of the "cunning of the streets."
With Metric Soccer, the staff of Metris Code decided to present this more playful side of football, as well as EA Sports did with the spin-off of the FIFA series. The project was eventually presented to the world on Reddit, with redrad56 developer confirming that he is working independently on a new soccer game for PC and consoles.
The classy football for "barefoot"
Searching posts by dev on the site, you can see that the game was born as another football title with stadiums and ordinary times, but at some point, the focus has changed to something more arcade. The lowland took over the game.
Presented at Reddit in November 2015, the Metris Code football game already had a gameplay test and some gear. Initially, the game would most common elements in games of FIFA or PES series, but also matches in smaller fields and in the streets.
Back in February, the project was modified and presented as Metris Soccer a game clearly inspired in FIFA Street, already inscribed in its alpha stage (on the PC), some features that will be implemented in the game and the release of promise for consoles ( Xbox One and PlayStation 4).

Elimination mode - 1v1v1v1v1 or 2v2v2v2. So all against all, with only one goal. Players try to score goals, and the last to score in the round is eliminated until only two contestants (or double);
Mode with three teams - One way in which the field has three goals and three teams competing frantically to see who makes more goals.
