That’s right folks in FIFA 13′s Career Mode your club can now take part in 1st season European football.
This is the bit EA asked us to hold back due to a few niggling issues but now we can tell you exactly how it works…
- In the Career Mode setup menu you can now select “Europe 1st Season”
- This takes you through to the cup draw which at first is populated with random teams.
- You then get the option to draw again from “seeded teams” which will give you a tournament setup closer to the real deal.
- After that you can also manually swap teams with others from the same league if you wish.
It may sound like a small thing but for Career Modes realism and that all important first impression it’s a massive hurdle that EA have managed to overcome this year and one which the community have asked for since the mode was re-launched with FIFA 10. It’s also important to note that Career Mode’s European football is not licensed officially.
Here’s the part of our interview with Lead Producer Santiago Jaramillo that we also cut at EA’s request, where he explains Career Modes Europe 1st Season options in a little more detail. Have a listen then hit the comments.
