EA Confirms World Cup Mode for FIFA 14 on Xbox One and PS4
Coming via a free update next week.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup video game released only on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, bafflingly foregoing a release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4; EA announced last week that they would sort of make up for that by releasing a FIFA World Cup Ultimate Team Mode for FIFA 14. But now, they have gone a step ahead and announced that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game will be getting a free World Cup Mode that will be patched into the game next week. That’s a surprisingly good and consumer friendly move by EA, especially considering they could have just sold the mode as DLC and gotten away with it to a degree.
The FIFA World Cup mode will be completely authentic- it will feature all 32 national teams playing in the tournament, as well as the official match ball. It’s going to be a bit more limited than 2014 FIFA World Cup (obviously), but on the whole, it should serve as a nice consolation price to those who have moved on to the PS4 and Xbox One entirely for their FIFA needs.
