Euro 2012 coming as expansion pack for FIFA 12.
EA Sports break the mould. It’s in the game, after all.
EA have today announced that EA Sports ‘UEFA Euro 2012′ will be an expansion pack for ‘FIFA 12′ rather than a standalone retail title, to coincide with the tournament taking place in Poland and Ukraine, kicking off on the 8th of June.
Due for download on the 24th April in Europe and North America, the following day everywhere else, it will require ‘FIFA 12′ to play and will have a set price of £15.99 / 1800 MS Points / 2500 FIFA Points on PC. Not bad for something that is normally a full price retail title.
UEFA Euro 2012 will feature all 53 UEFA member national teams, the eight official stadiums in the tournament, a new Expedition mode, and “a live service” offering regular challenges based on real events in the qualifying campaign and those that occur during the tournament, which will enable players to earn experience points and level up their EA Sports Football Club profile.
Check out the blurb for more information:
Fans will be able to compete online for national pride and glory as their favourite European country in the UEFA EURO 2012 tournament against rival nations in the group stage, progress through the sudden victory knockout rounds, and ultimately compete for the chance to be crowned UEFA EURO 2012 champion.
The all-new Expedition Mode designed exclusively for UEFA EURO 2012 enables fans to build, manage and compete with a customized team against other European nations, crafting the perfect strategy for European domination. Fans will choose their favourite European player or FIFA 12 Virtual Pro to captain their customized team, win matches to earn better players from defeated nations, and then defeat the best nations to earn the best players in a campaign quest to defeat all 53 countries and complete the journey to conquer Europe.
“This game will tap into the passion fans have for their national teams by capturing all of the national rivalries in-game, and re-creating all the emotion of the UEFA EURO 2012 tournament,” said producer Sebastian Enrique. “We are utilizing the best-playing FIFA videogame ever, driving live, digital content created from the biggest headlines from the tournament into the game, and offering an exclusive new mode that will challenge gamers in unique and compelling ways.”
