Update — just wanted to let you all know that FIFA 11 is on track to be released somewhere between 28 September and 4 October 2010, depending on where you live and what system you use.
- Xbox 360, PS3, Windows, PS2, PSP, Mobile: 28 September North America, 30 September Australia, 1 October Europe
- Wii: 4 October North America and Europe, 6 October Online Blackjack
There’s a bunch of differences from FIFA 10, many of which address the online features and team/avatar customizations (still no online blackjack feature though ).
The features that I’m most looking forward to are the “Personality+” and “Pro Passing” features. The former is a big step toward realistic AI, modeled after the real player’s temperament (luckily managers and wives aren’t included!), and the latter promises to give you a lot more control over passing accuracy (at last) and more realistic physics (at last again).
You can also import custom music soundtracks, which is a great way to hear that wacky Focus song while you play. Or a chorus of vuvuzelas, if you like. To each his own…
No doubt, football – in all of its incarnations (which we’ll get to in a minute) – is highly addictive. Football aka Soccer is one sport that doesn’t pussy-foot its way around – it’s in your face, and sometimes brutal. Always fun and exciting.
