FIFA 14 was a huge focus during today’s pre-Gamescom press conference for EA, as the company discussed a number of features for its upcoming soccer sim.
First, fans of the game on current gen consoles won’t have to wait long to try it, as EA Sports announced a demo for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. It’ll go live on September 10th.
In addition, a free-to-play mobile game will be released alongside the console versions, with a number of features that will keep players connected to their soccer universe, even when they’re not playing.
Finally, if you buy either the Xbox One or Xbox 360 versions of the game, you’ll score the free Ultimate Team Legends mode, exclusive for those consoles. These allow legendary players like Pele and Freddie Ljungberg to play alongside their squads.
“Each Legend will have their own distinct look, unique attributes and custom biography, and will be randomly included in Gold Packs in FIFA 14 Ultimate Team on Xbox One and Xbox 360,” says Microsoft’s press release. “Fans will be able to acquire Legends in packs or through the Transfer Market, and then compete with their squads in special tournaments… Each legend will be available in packs for a limited time and at different times throughout the season.”
FIFA 14 releases on September 25th for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and later in the year for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
