Hi, guys. I%26rsquo;m looking forward to the imminent launch of FIFA 08, and wanted to tell you more about our new game mode this year %26ldquo;Be A Pro: Co-op Season%26rdquo;, how it came about, and some tips for playing it.
What is Co-op Season?
Be A Pro: Co-op Season is a new way of playing FIFA 08 %26ndash; as one footballer. Instead of controlling all 11 players on your club, you play through a whole season with your friends where each of you controls one footballer on the pitch. It feels much more like playing football yourself.
Playing Co-op Season feels a lot different than traditional FIFA games. You have new controls, like when your CPU-controlled team-mate has the ball you can ask for him to pass it to you or encourage him to have a crack when he%26rsquo;s in a good shooting position.
The way Co-op Season works is you pick a club to play a season with. At the start of every match, you get a specific task (e.g. attempt three shots on goal), and your friend, or friends, you%26rsquo;re playing with also gets a task. On top of that, you get a Team Task to accomplish as a group (e.g. win by two goals). After each game you earn XP points based on how you played and if you accomplished your tasks.
