Soccer video gamers waiting to get a taste of what FIFA14 is all about will not have to wait much longer.
EA Sports announced in a press conference on Tuesday that the demo for latest installment of the best-selling soccer video game will be released on Sept. 10 and 11. No further information on the demo was given, but EA did provide other details about the upcoming game, which is set for a Sept. 24 release date in North America and will be available on the Playstation 3, XBOX 360 and the soon-to-be-launched next-gen consoles.
Among the many things EA announced were that there would be more teams, leagues and players in FIFA14 than in last year’s game, a licensed Brazilian national team, the addition of the Chilean Primera Division, new clubs from Italy and South America and 18 teams from Brazil’s first division.
In addition, EA revealed a pair of new game modes: Co-Op Seasons and Legends in Ultimate Team. Co-Op Seasons will allow gamers to play ranked 2-v-2 matches online, with the goal being to try and get to Division 1. The Legends feature, meanwhile, will give gamers the chance to create their Ultimate Teams with 40 of the sport’s all-time greats, including Pele, Fabio Cannavaro, Dennis Bergkamp and Edwin Van Der Sar, in addition to today’s stars. Legends will only be available on the XBOX 360 and XBOX One.
EA also announced Precision Movement, which is a gameplay feature that will see players show bursts of acceleration before reaching maximum velocity.
