EA Sports announced today that it has developed a new feature for FIFA Soccer 13 called Football Club Match Day that will drive a connection between a videogame and the real world of sport.
FIFA Soccer 13 and the real-world soccer season will be completely connected for the world’s top leagues. EA SPORTS Football Club Match Day will drive real-world news from the headlines around the world into FIFA Soccer 13. Real-world drama such as injuries, suspensions, team form, and media gossip will be reflected through in-game commentary and play out in-game.
“This is a huge technological innovation that will make every match feel like a seamless extension of the headlines ripped from the sports pages around the world,” said David Rutter, Executive Producer of FIFA Soccer 13. “There is nothing bigger in the world of sports than match day. It brings together the emotions, passion and drama of the world’s sport for players, pundits, managers and fans alike. We are going to capture that experience and bring it to life in-game.”
Football Club Match Day will be included in a FIFA Soccer 13 demo for all platforms that will launch around the world on September 11.
EA SPORTS also revealed today that it has expanded its online mode, now called Seasons, to include 2v2 guest ranked online play where friends can battle together in ten game seasons to win promotion in league divisions.
The popular Seasons format has also been developed for FIFA Ultimate Team, bringing ranked online play with seasons, promotions, and relegation to the mode for the first time.
FIFA Soccer 13 will be available in stores on September 25 in North America and September 28 in the rest of the world for the PlayStation 3 with PlayStation Move support, Xbox 360 with Kinect, and PC.
