The lights are on
There's more to the World Cup than just the games that will be played this summer. There's the drama of qualification, the roster selection, tune-up friendlies, and more. In the case of EA Canada's 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil title, there are a number of modes that flesh out the core tournament experience. The game's new trailer outlines what you can expect.
FIFA World Cup's modes run the gamut from being able to redo qualification as any country in the game to the Captain Your Country mode, where you star as a single player (above). There is also the chance to relive the best moments of the real-life qualifiers (including USA vs. Costa Rica's Snow Clasico) and play through the highlight events of the real-life tournament when it kicks off this June.
The trailer below also gives a sneak peak at Captain Your Country's new auto-positioning system and one of the skill games through which you can improve your players.
For a look at some of the gameplay changes in the title, take a look at this previous trailer and check out this preview featuring comments from lead producer Mat Prior.
