The biggest sport in the world just got bigger, as EA announced today that their global soccer smash, FIFA 12, is now available absolutely free as an Android exclusive on the Xperia™ PLAY
With an immersive FIFA experience optimized for the Xperia™ PLAY
, mobile gaming fans can expect unprecedented gameplay depth, authentic commentaries, and a new replay system as well as updated team rosters and stadium designs from dozens of the world’s top leagues.
Player control on the device was of the utmost importance to FIFA 12’s creators.
“One of the things we spent the most time on was the controls. We went through a lot of iterations to make sure we fully exploit both the touchscreen and the hardware,” said FIFA 12 producer Alex Ruse. “Our vision was to create the most authentic FIFA experience that fosters one of the largest football communities on the planet. We took special care to ensure that authenticity carried through on the Xperia™ PLAY
However, for all its great options, one feature missing from the Android version of FIFA 12 is multiplayer, so you won’t be able to take on your friends just yet. Even so, the game’s excellent and responsive AI means you won’t be at a loss for a challenge any time soon.
With silky smooth visuals, excellent controls and addictive gameplay, FIFA 12 on the Xperia™ PLAY
is one of the most faithful and satisfying soccer titles you will find, not only on a mobile device, but on any platform. And best of all, it’s totally FREE on the Xperia™ PLAY for a limited time along with 4 other EA titles
including Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Dead Space, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and Need for Speed: Shift.
“We were amazed by the Xperia™ PLAY
's performance during development,” continued Ruse. "It really is a very powerful device and we're proud of what we have managed to achieve this year.”
