FIFA 13 to expand Football Club features

iOS and Vita app confirmed

EA's announced new features for FIFA 13's EA Sports Football Club, including an app for iPhone, iPad and Vita.


This year returning FIFA 12 players will carry their Football Club Level and XP into FIFA 13 and they'll also receive a special bonus in the new Football Club Catalogue, says EA.

Fans will now be earning Football Club Credits to unlock items such as kits, special celebrations, virtual pro attribute boosts, Career Mode super scout credits, FIFA 13 Ultimate Teamcoin boosts, and extra matches in Head-to-Head Seasons mode from the Catalogue.

For the first time, players will also be able to share their FIFA experience with friends on Facebook through Football Club.

Through the Football Club iOS app, fans will be able to search live Ultimate Team auctions and bid to win new players.

"We connect fans to the heartbeat of the sport-and to each other-through EA SPORTS Football Club," said Matt Bilbey, VP of Football, EA SPORTS. "We've had a transformative year operating as a live service, connecting players to real-world football events with fresh, new content, enabling them to support their favourite club, and allowing them to connect and compete with their friends.

"This year with the launch of FIFA 13, we are going to reward our fans for their support, offer in-game incentives to keep them playing longer and all season long, and provide new ways for fans to stay connected to our game across multiple devices and platforms."
