FIFA 13 Syncing with Sports News

EA Sports has announced that FIFA 13 will sync between the real world of football in an even greater way now with the introduction of EA Sports Football Club Match Day, a feature that will see real-world news make it's way into FIFA 13 and change the gameplay. Injuries, suspensions, team form, and media gossip will be reflected through in-game commentary and play out in-game.

David Rutter, FIFA 13 Executive Producer, says the feature will make every match feel like a seamless extension of the headlines ripped from the football pages around the world.

“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,” he says.

Real-world fixtures and upcoming clashes of gamers' favourite club in the top leagues will enable them to play right along with the unfolding of the season. Player form—displayed in detail within the team management screens—will change frequently, so players in form, or players struggling to keep form, will see their stats change throughout the season based on their real-world performances. Plus, Games of the Week will highlight the top global match-ups for fans to enjoy.

The upcoming FIFA 13 demo for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, which is releasing on 11 September, will include the feature for gamers to check out.

FIFA 13's online mode Seasons has also been expanded, which sees 2v2 co-op ranked online play where friends can battle together in ten game seasons to win promotions in league divisions. Division Titles have been added to every division and a new Trophy Cabinet enables champions to showcase their silverware. Players can perfect their line-up and tactics across multiple Seasons matches, save the squads, and use them for every match. Plus, new match-making options enable fans to fine tune their Seasons experience.

“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. In FIFA Ultimate Team fans can earn, buy, trade and bid for coveted players to build a team of the world’s best football stars. Fans can create and manage multiple squads and take them into competition in online and single-player tournaments. It’s now easier than ever to play Ultimate Team with a re-designed navigation system and the Icebreaker Flow, enabling inexperienced players to choose a team captain, such as Messi, Karim Benzema, Jakub Błaszczykowski or Claudio Marchisio, to begin a guided Ultimate Team journeym,” says a press release.

FIFA 13 is expected to release on 28 September for PS3 (PS Move Supported), Xbox 360 (Kinect supported), PS Vita, Wii, PC, PS2, Nintendo 3DS and PSP. Later on this year it will also be released for WiiU. Furthermore, a version of FIFA 13 will be available in the App Store for iOS and later on this year for Android.
