According to Thorstenseen, the game will be free, cross-game, multiplayer first and ready for electronic sports. Goals will use a game mode to win, rewarding players through non-fungable chips for time and skill in the game. This method will allow more players to earn money while playing. In addition, the cross-game function will allow players from different platforms to compete with each other.

Thorstenseen's decision to build a new football game occurred after playing more than 5,000 game games and observing the lack of progress on the electronic sports scene, he said. EA Sports and Konami are the leading companies in terms of soccer games. Both FIFA and PES (now Efootball) are played by millions of fans around the world. However, when it comes to electronic sports, FIFA has continued leading the group with Efootball still lagged even with its brand change.
Over the years, there have been complaints about EA's approach to FIFA's electronic sports. This includes low prizes at certain tournaments, lack of cross-game and little focus on the electronic sports community. The creation of goals could be a positive addition to the soccer sports community. Looking at what this new game plans to achieve it, it is clear that they are advancing towards a game 'ready for electronic sports'.
The GOALS team will focus on building an appropriate pairing classification system with tournaments and classifications according to Thorstenseen. They also plan to structure the game in a way that allows players to win due to their skills, making the game more competitive. For the first features of the multiplayer player, goals will follow the Valorant model and dedicate much of its resources to create an online fluid experience. This approach will try to eliminate the delay, latency and the delay of the buttons in online competitions.
In addition, Thorstenseen is the founder of SK Gaming and former Counter-Strike world champion and plans to use the experience of it to create an ecosystem of larger electronic sports for the game. With all these initiatives, Goals seems to be a game that could potentially rival FIFA's electronic sports. However, the game would have to overcome the problems of licenses and base of players to really challenge FIFA in the coming years.
