EA Outline New Live Season Mode For FIFA 10, Demo Tomorrow


Today, EA Sports have announced that the Live Season mode of FIFA 10 has been expanded and enhanced,  giving more depth and realism. Now Live Season will encompass and mirror events that occur in real life, not just player form now. Say for example Manchester United are travelling to play Blackburn Rovers and Rooney is injured, this will now have an effect in the game too, along with any who are suspended too.

Additionally, transfers (unless you happen to be Chelsea), league standings and fixtures will all be taken into account too in the revampled Live Season mode.

The full press release is after the jump.

The new My Live Season premium service in FIFA 10 will feature weekly updates of player form, transfers, injuries, suspensions, fixtures, results and league standings, creating a mode that mirrors the real world, where gamers play their favourite real-world teams’ games in complete authenticity in any of the following leagues: Barclay’s Premier League, La Liga BBVA, Ligue 1, Bundesliga, Serie A and Mexican Primera Division. The game mode enables you to visually track your results against real life as you progress.

“Every Wednesday is Live Season day where dynamic real-world data and analytics will be updated in FIFA 10 to match the weekly rhythm of real-world football and subscribers will have the chance to rewrite their clubs’ history,” said David Rutter, producer of FIFA 10.

My Live Season is available for the PLAYSTATION 3 and Xbox 360. The service is valued at a recommended retail price of £3.99 for the ongoing season on PlayStation Network and 400 points on Xbox Live Marketplace for each individual league. A package of all leagues will be available for the recommended retail price £7.99 for the ongoing season on PlayStation Network and 800 points on Xbox Live Marketplace.
