(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – FIFA 14 may be arriving for plenty of platforms including Wii and PS4, but the highly anticipated title will offer an exclusive feature only on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles.
The tech giant announced the news during Tuesday’s Gamescom event in Germany, unveiling the exclusive feature called “Ultimate Team,” something that allows gamers to play as legendary soccer plays (or errr…footaballers) including Gary Linekar, Patrick Viera, Freddie Ljungberg, Rudd Gullit and others.
“Each Legend will have their own distinct look, unique attributes, and custom biography, and will be randomly included in Gold Packs in “FIFA 14” Ultimate Team on Xbox One and Xbox 360. Fans will be able to acquire Legends in packs or through the Transfer Market, and then compete with their squads in special tournaments that showcase the skills and flair that made each of these players legendary. Each legend will be available in packs for a limited time and at different times throughout the season,” explained Microsoft via Xbox Wire.
In addition to Ultimate Team, Microsoft announced that FIFA 14 would be included with all Xbox One Day One Edition pre-orders for Europe.
FIFA 14 will launch for platforms including the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii on September 24th in North America.
