When your DLC is getting DLC, then you know you've made something the fans want. FIFA 11's Ultimate Team mode – the card-based fantasy footie mode – is getting an update, including some major improvements.

The February 17 update gives over 50 updates, according to EA, including the ability to challenge friends and compare yourself against friends via leaderboards. Friends can be challenged whether they are online or not (you can even leave messages for them after you've played their CPU-controlled team if they're not there), and the leaderboards include rankings for things like overall club value or trading activity.

EA says that the mode's other improvements include the ability to re-post expired auction items, turning off power passing assistance for online matches, and "general stability improvements."

FIFA 11 Ultimate Team is already free, but do these additions sound good enough to make you want to pick it up?
