FIFA 11 has Be A Goalkeeper mode

You can now play between the sticks

EA has announced that FIFA 11 will have a new Be A Goalkeeper mode - meaning true 11 vs 11 online matches.

It will have differing degrees of accessibility with AI assisting if you need help, as you play in goalie in Career Mode or create yourself as the goalie in Virtual Pro 2.0.

You can also play as the goalkeeper online, allowing for full 11 player vs 11 player matches in multiplayer.

"The phenomenal growth of online gaming and the desire of our fans to be able to play as the goalie was the driving force behind this innovation for FIFA 11," said Kaz Makita, Executive Producer, EA SPORTS FIFA. "Friends can play alongside each other in their pro clubs with all 11 virtual players on the pitch human controlled. We have finally replicated football in the virtual world."

We're just waiting to hear from EA if we can play as rush goalie...
