FIFA 14 adds Barcelona as an Official Club Partner
EA Sports has released a new FIFA 14 video in which Barcelona is announced as an Official Club Partner through a new three-year deal.
The developers of FIFA 14 captured 3D head scans of 17 F.C. Barcelona players such as Xavi Hernandez, Gerard Piqué, Cesc Fàbregas, Dani Alves, and Andrés Iniesta, and they will appear as 3D digital player models in FIFA 14.
In addition, Camp Nou, Barcelona’s home pitch, will be a featured stadium and F.C. Barcelona will host an exclusive video game tournament later this year to determine the best FIFA 14 player on the squad.
Over the course of the partnership, F.C. Barcelona and EA will develop a range of interactive activities to “entertain and engage fans both at Camp Nou and around the world.”
At selected home matches over the course of the season, the EA SPORTS Dugout, a mobile gaming trailer, will be on-site so fans can play EA SPORTS games. In addition, F.C. Barcelona will receive in-game insights and data about how their fans engage with the club through EA SPORTS FIFA.
FIFA 14 is available for pre-order on selected platforms and will release in North America on September 24 and worldwide on September 27 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
It will release on PS4 and Xbox One later this year.
