In case you haven’t heard, EA’s FIFA
Street is from the streets, yo. And when it hits the online soccer scene on
March 13, it’ll be packing its own “Street Network.” It’s just like your
regular social network, but more “street.” With it, players can share videos of
their best stunts and tricks, recruit friends to their squad, and challenge
other player-run teams.
With twice as many skill moves as
its conservative cousin FIFA Soccer 12, Street is about embarrassing the
opponent, not just beating him. FIFA Street is more brash and showy than the
button-down FIFA 12, despite being built on the same Impact engine. Street will
take players to over 35 soccer-loving locations, including Rio de Janeiro,
London and Amsterdam. Get the full rundown on new Street features here.
EA Sports is already laying the groundwork for a
strong FIFA Street community. The game will be part of EA’s Football Club,
and is already building a presence on Facebook and Twitter, so
get ready to hit the Street running when March 13 rolls around.
