EA Sports have revealed the cover star for the UK version of their upcoming football title, FIFA 14.
They previously released a teaser trailer for who would be joining Lionel Messi on the cover of FIFA 14 but have now revealed that the player teased is Tottenham Hotspur star, Gareth Bale.
Speaking on the official Tottenham website, Dan Holman, Head of UK Product Marketing EA SPORTS stated:
We’re delighted to be working with Gareth Bale, he’s a natural goal scorer and is a perfect fit for FIFA 14’s new Pure Shot feature that allows for numerous new exhilarating and rewarding ways to score. Renowned for his outstanding game-winning goals last season, we’ve worked closely with the EA SPORTS team in Vancouver to motion capture and 3D head scan Gareth so he will be even more authentic than ever in FIFA 14.
Cover Star Gareth Bale also commented on getting chosen stating:
To be on the front cover is a massive honour, when you look at the calibre of players that have been on there in the past they are legends of the game. So for me to be here now is a dream come true and it’s great to be involved.
