FIFA 08 Gets Online Team Play

EA has unveiled plans for a new feature called Be a Pro: Online Team Play that will enable ten people anywhere in the world to connect online and play a single match of FIFA 08. The new feature will be offered as a free downloadable feature six to eight weeks after the game ships to stores for both the PS3 and Xbox 360. FIFA 08 will be available in Europe on September 28 and in North America on October 9.

Be A Pro: Online Team Play is the evolution of a new play mode featured in FIFA 08 called Be A Pro that locks you into the role of a single, fixed player the entire game and challenges you to master the same disciplines as a real football player-from positioning and tackling to reading the field and passing. Users receive real time feedback and analysis on the fly and a unique camera angle keeps both player and action in focus, zooming in when you’re on attack. Now in Be A Pro: Online Team Play, up to five friends on different consoles will be able to select and take control of their own individual players on the same team, supported by AI teammates, to play against up to five rivals of another team. Alternatively, online users can select to play with free roaming players, and teams can have a combination of both.

Additionally, the online feature set in the game includes Interactive Leagues where players represent their clubs online against rivals throughout the season in the F.A. Premier League, Bundesliga, French League or Mexican 1st Division. It also features weekly in-game podcasts by the development team.

FIFA 08 is also in development for the PC, PSP, Wii, DS and mobile.
