EA Sports first announced its new soccer game called EA Sports FIFA a few months ago, and we got the chance to go hands-on with it back at E3 2015. According to the video game developer’s official website, the new title is slated to launch in the Google Play Store on Tuesday, September 22nd.
EA is marketing the new title as providing a real console-like experience, and for the most part, we’d have to agree. In our short time with FIFA, we found that animations were great and graphics were as solid as they could get on mobile devices. It’s optimized and built from the ground up to be played on a smaller screen, and that makes a difference when comparing it to other soccer titles. You control your team with large, easy-to-find joysticks, and swipes can be used to pass and shoot the ball.
You can either play in a single player campaign mode, but the fun really begins when you start customizing your own team. You can maintain your roster through trades and transfers. After you build your dream team, you can participate in live events such as tournaments and dynamic accomplishments. EA says more unique content will be added to the game on a regular basis.
According to EA’s website, EA Sports FIFA will be available on September 22nd for Android and iOS devices, though the game has already soft launched on iOS. It will be free to download and will contain some in-app purchases, just like other EA titles. We’ll be sure to let you know when the game becomes available.
