Free-to-play FIFA World enters global open beta

EA has entered the next stage in the evolution of its lucrative FIFA franchise by opening up its free-to-play PC title FIFA World to all.

The EA Canada developed game is effectively the Ultimate Team mode from the console game, albeit built around a modified game engine. It features over 1,600 players from 600 clubs across 30 licensed leagues.

“By bringing the FIFA franchise to the PC platform as a free-to-play game, we give millions of new fans their chance to experience the authentic FIFA experience, with award-winning gameplay and licensed leagues,” producer Alex Grimbley said.

“At the same time, existing FIFA fans now have a new way to enjoy the game they already love, with fresh daily content and the ability to play on almost any PC.

“After four Closed Beta sessions and a limited Open Beta, where we saw over 1.5m fans register to play, we’re very excited to now open the game to football fans from all over the world.

“This is a great opportunity for fans to influence the development of our new game, and the feedback we’ve gotten so far has been absolutely instrumental in shaping our features and services.”
