It may seem odd to some that there are still any multiplatform games that don’t play better on PC as we sit here in 2011, but this is a reality that beleaguered football fans have had to endure since the dawn of the current generation. Having provided PC gamers with a sub standard experience for years and delivering an only slightly modified PlayStation 2 engine right up until FIFA 11, it looks like EA are finally set to address this odd and slightly baffling disparity between the two formats. For the first time ever PC gamers will be treated to all the same bells, whistles and game engine as the console versions, including this years big new additions of “real world physicality” and (hopefully) an improved career mode.
About time. FIFA 12 will launch for PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, Nintendo 3DS, iPad, iPod Touch, iPhone, Toasters and Calculators on 27 September in the US and everywhere else on 30 September. Feel free to insert your own comment about the only country in the world that doesn’t care about football getting it before everybody else here, should you wish.
EA putting some effort into the PC version of one of their biggest annual franchises? Anyone would think they had a new digital distribution service to promote or something.
