Announced today at Microsoft’s gamescom press conference, legends like Pelé, Patrick Vieira, and Ruud Gullit are coming to FIFA 14 Ultimate Team exclusively to the Xbox 360 and Xbox One later this year. Fans will be able to craft their Ultimate Team with their favorite legends alongside today’s stars. Each legend comes to the game with their own unique attributes and skills they displayed at the height of their career. These players will be randomly included in Gold Packs in FIFA 14 Ultimate Team starting when the Xbox One launches.
EA SPORTS also announced today that it has developed Seasons into a new online mode called Co-op Seasons, where anyone can play with a friend online against two other online friends anywhere in the world in 2v2 ranked online play, trying to climb up to Division One, win a League Title and achieve greatness together. In addition, Match Day has been expanded to Seasons and Co-op seasons, completely connecting fans playing online to the real-world soccer season for the world’s top leagues, with injuries, suspensions, and player form changing throughout the season based on real-world events and performances.
And as we detailed today at our show, all of these features will be available for FIFA 14 on both current generation consoles as well as the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. So what should you buy? We made it simple: start your season of FIFA 14 on your current console, and then bring it all with you when you buy your next-gen console. Your FIFA Ultimate Team will travel with you – your season progress, trophy case and leaderboards; your Online Virtual Pro and accomplishments, your EA SPORTS Level and XP so you won’t lose any time.
Can’t wait to get your hands on FIFA 14? Well you’re in luck – the demo will start September 10 and the game will launch in North America on September 24 and September 27 in Europe. And of course, if you’re lucky enough to join us here in Cologne, you can join us on pitch this week at our booth.
