EA has told us about the Live Season service which will launch alongside FIFA 10, next month.
The weekly update service will mimic the real world leagues, to ensure that your copy of the game is a close to the real-thing as possible. It is an enhanced version of the Adidas Live Season which we saw in FIFA 09.
That means players who are injured or suspended will have an affect in the game, as well as fixtures, standings or the transfers which take place (except Chelsea that is!).
“Every Wednesday is Live Season day where dynamic real-world data and analytics will be updated in FIFA 10 to match the weekly rhythm of real-world football and subscribers will have the chance to rewrite their clubs’ history,” said David Rutter, producer of FIFA 10.
It’ll cost £3.99 on the PSN or 400 MS Points on the Live Marketplace for each league that you follow. Only the main leagues such as the Premier League will be supported in each country.
If you want the full package, that’ll be £7.99 or 800 MS Points on PSN and Live respectively. Don’t forget the demo is out tomorow and is shaping up to be quite special.
