It is with great excitement I present to you the latest feature of FIFA 09; FIFA 09 Clubs. With FIFA 09 so close to release we thought we’d heard the entire feature list – but we hadn’t. Sit down, take a deep breath, and take a look at this.
Over at the EA UK forums one of the staff posted the following announcement:
EA SPORTS today revealed a new online mode called FIFA 09 Clubs, designed for PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360, that enables gamers to form or join user-controlled ‘clubs’ anywhere in the world. Through FIFA 09 Clubs, gamers can form or join clubs of up to 50 friends and field their strongest team when competing in Be A Pro: 10 v 10 Online Team Play, a feature that enables 20 people on 20 different consoles anywhere in the world to connect online to play a single match of FIFA 09.
