Instead of forcing people to splash out on another full FIFA game, this year’s Euro release willbe an expansion pack (remember when we used to call them that?) for FIFA 12, a press release issued this morning has confirmed.
The bolt-on will be released on the 24th of April (for PC, PS3 and 360) and will “recreate all the excitement of the official tournament with over 50 European national teams, all eight official stadiums, and all the pageantry and atmosphere of one of the largest and most-watched sporting events on the planet.”
There’s also an all new “Expedition Mode” designed for this new title, which allows gamers to build a squad and compete against others.
“Fans will choose their favourite European player or FIFA 12 Virtual Pro to captain their customized team, win matches to earn better players from defeated nations, and then defeat the best nations to earn the best players in a campaign quest to defeat all 53 countries and complete the journey to conquer Europe”
“Plus,” says the press release, “you will be able to relive dramatic moments from the UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying campaign with challenges based on real-life matches, and replay key moments from the UEFA EURO 2012 tournament.”
