  • News FIFA 18's Overhauled Career Mode Has Cutscenes and Dialogue Options

    Putting the man in manager

    We've always been fans of FIFA's career mode -- taking Liverpool to the top of the league and keeping them there because they can't bloody do it in real life -- so we're happy to hear that the simulation's getting some significant overhauls in this year's edition. Indeed, FIFA 18's career will actually incorporate...

    All flair

    EA's pushed out a new trailer for FIFA 18.

  • Rumour Sony May Have Scored FIFA Marketing Rights from Xbox

    Back of the net

    Football is fudging huge here in Europe, and do you know what else is massive on these shores? PlayStation. It always made sense for Microsoft to be marketing partners of the FIFA franchise, then, because between Champions League sponsorship and general dominance in Europe, soccer games are already associated with Sony’s system...

    Football – the version played with the feet rather than the hands – is the most popular sport in the world, so it's no surprise to see FIFA 17 utterly dominate the sales charts around the globe. EA announced as part of an earnings call overnight that the latest iteration of its soccer simulation was the best-selling console...

    Back of the net

    Footy fans rejoice: FIFA 17 will be completely free-to-play on the PlayStation 4 this weekend – though there will be a catch. While you'll be able to gain access to the entire game, a portion of The Journey campaign mode will be blocked off, preventing you from seeing the story through. You'll obviously need to cough up if you...

  • News Battlefield 1, FIFA 17 Both Shine Brightly on PS4 Pro

    Frostbitten

    Marketing deals appear to have prevented EA Games from shouting too loudly about the PlayStation 4 Pro patches for its two flagship games, but Digital Foundry has determined that both FIFA 17 and Battlefield 1 are at their gob-stopping best on Sony's new system. The former soccer sim runs at an uncompromised native 4K resolution, while...

  • News FIFA 17 PS4 Patch Makes the Computer a Little Less Defensive

    Get off the bus

    We've seen complaints floating around the web for a few weeks now with regards to the defensive capabilities of FIFA 17's artificial intelligence. Supposedly, computer controlled players are pretty bloody good at winning the ball back, and in some cases, they're almost a little too good. As such, the highlight of the game's first...

    Space ace

    Your computer controlled teammates will supposedly be smarter than ever before in FIFA 17 - a statement that comes as no real surprise since EA Sports seems to say it almost every year.

    He came from France

  • Round Up FIFA 16 PS4 Reviews Attack the Last Man

    On target

    The battle for soccer supremacy is back on, with PES 2016: Pro Evolution Soccer wowing critics earlier in the month. FIFA 16 will, of course, outpace Konami's classic in the sales department, but can it beat it in the reviews, too? The answer, it would appear, is not quite – but this is an AGUERRRO-esque to-the-wire race. We've...

  • News FIFA 16's Commercial Features Some Fancy Footwork

    Play beautiful

    You may want to turn your speakers down for this FIFA 16 commercial as the operatic theme is a little, shall we say, noisy. Still, this is a pretty nifty trailer featuring a vast array of famous faces, from Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero right the way through to Kobe Bryant. United States forward Alex Morgan also puts in an appearance...

  • News FIFA 16 Soundtrack Is as Varied as Ever, Featuring Artists We've Never Heard Of

    How many do you know?

    We're not ashamed to admit that we've discovered many an enjoyable musician thanks to the varied licensed soundtracks that FIFA titles tend to employ. This year's edition, FIFA 16, boasts a total of 42 artists hailing from 15 different countries, and as always, we don't have a clue who most of them are. Still, at least Steve...

    Sehr gut

    German international Mario Götze may have scored the winning goal for his country in the 2014 world cup final, but his luck wasn't so great on the pitch of one gamer's PlayStation 3 copy of FIFA. Mario Thissen was enraged when Götze missed a 90th minute penalty in his game - so much so that he smashed his DualShock 3 into pieces. Not...

  • News FIFA Is Skipping a Season on PS Vita

    Sacked

    FIFA 16 may be keeping the ball rolling on last-gen consoles, but it'll be taking a season off as far as handhelds are concerned. The upcoming sports simulator won't be appearing on the PlayStation Vita this year, although we're not entirely sure what difference that'll actually make. Indeed, each portable iteration of the mega franchise has...

    Review FIFA 15

    Straight down the middle

    Reviewing FIFA tends to get harder as the years pass, especially when there are no new gameplay innovations or drastic blueprint alterations to shout about. Last year's entry felt like a step up purely because of the graphical and technical improvements that came courtesy of new hardware, but FIFA 15 is obviously unable to...

  • Round Up FIFA 15 PS4 Reviews On Target Yet Again

    No Hazard here

    Much like one of a handful of Premier League teams from several years ago, EA Sports’ scarily popular FIFA franchise is no stranger to the final stages of the Champion’s League – after all, the soccer series has been dominating European sales charts for some time now. And it looks like FIFA 15 will not buck that trend, with...

    Load of old dribble

    One of the few highlights in EA Games’ dreadfully drab Gamescom 2014 press conference today – which should illustrate just how bad the showing was – is that FIFA 15 is getting a demo on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 ahead of its release next month. Why is this news? Well, because the upcoming Madden NFL 15 is not...

    Review FIFA 14

    Through on goal

    EA Sports' annual football franchise has enjoyed a good run of late, maintaining steady form over the past few years. The PlayStation 3 version of FIFA 14 was another solid step in the right direction, even if it was more about evolution rather than revolution, as we described in our review. Now, the game makes the jump to Sony's new...
