Guildford, UK. – Sept. 11, 2012 – EA SPORTS™ announced that a FIFA 13 demo is available around the world for download beginning today for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system, and PC. The FIFA 13 demo is available through Origin™, Xbox LIVE® and PlayStation Network®. Football fans across Europe and Japan will be able to download the FIFA 13 PlayStation3 version of the demo beginning Sept. 12.
Winner of the prestigious E3 Game Critics award for “Best Sports Game”, FIFA 13 has been called the “best football game ever” by GamesMaster Magazine.
Play as Manchester City, Arsenal, Juventus, AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund in the demo, and experience EA SPORTS Football Club Match Day, a new feature that will drive the deepest and most meaningful connection yet between a videogame and the real world of sport ever achieved. FIFA 13 and the football season will be completely connected for the world’s top leagues. EA SPORTS Football Club Match Day will drive real-world news ripped from the headlines around the world into FIFA 13. In the demo, real-world drama such as injuries, suspensions, team form, and media gossip surrounding Manchester City, Arsenal, Juventus, AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund will play out in-game and be reflected through in-game commentary. Player form—displayed in detail within the team management screens—will change regularly, so players in form, or players struggling to keep form, will see their stats change throughout the season based on their real-world performances.
FIFA 13 captures the unpredictability of real-world football, with no two matches ever the same. The game features breakthrough gameplay innovations such as FIFA 13 First Touch Control and the Player Impact Engine that create a true battle for possession across the entire pitch, and features like Complete Dribbling and Attacking Intelligence that deliver freedom and creativity in attack. FIFA 13 is football's social network, where fans connect, compete and share with millions of others around the world.
