It’s World Cup year again! Four years down the road after Italy secured victory over France in a dramatic match played in Germany, it’s time for a new campaign of football fever and delights, this time in South Africa!
Nevertheless, before the actual tournament kicks off in June this year, you will be pleased to know that we can experience the interactive adaptation of this awaited tournament two months before the World Cup kicks off in South Africa on the 11th of June.
I am talking about none other than Electronic Arts’ famed football series, the 2010 FIFA World Cup game that would be available on Sony’s PS3 and PSP, the Xbox 360, Nintendo’s Wii (in addition to mobile and computer platforms as well).
Date of release is currently set on the 27 April 2010. But keep your fingers crossed for an earlier release as demand mounts!
Improvements this time include enhancements on location information (for example players would tire faster when the pitch is at higher altitude as well as teams perform better on home soil), as well as an increase in the number of nations taking part in the game (199 in total from qualification matches).
Several other visual (red female fans in the crowd, players on the bench, improved lighting, fan emotions display etc) and game-play (read improved players, more variety of skills and tactics, quick free kick taking abilities, etc) enhancements can also be anticipated, so brace yourself for an all-new, outstanding version of EA Sports’ 2010 FIFA World Cup game that would serve as an excellent appetizer before the real tournament gets underway!
