EA’s announced that FIFA 12 will arrive in the US and Europe by the end of September.

The US will get it on September 27, with Europe to follow on September 30 on PS3, 360 and PC.

EA’s also announced that the new Impact Engine, previously only introduced for the HD console versions, will be implemented into the PC version.

The new engine will let fans “experience the way real-world players challenge each other for the ball, win possession and test each other physically,” plus more.

“This is the moment all PC gamers have been waiting for, as they are finally going to fully experience the award-winning FIFA gameplay on their preferred platform,” said FIFA 12 executive producer, Kaz Makita.

“PC fans are going to enjoy the highest quality gameplay, deepest game modes and truest graphics ever developed for the platform, including our new live service EA SPORTS Football Club.”

The PC version will also be available as a digi download from Origin.

News on the traditional pre-release demo wasn’t announced, but that’ll most likely come at gamescom in August.
