EA Sports has announced the April 30 release of EA Sports 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and PSP.
2010 FIFA World Cup will feature all 199 national teams that took part in qualification, all 10 stadiums to be used in South Africa and stadiums from each qualifying region. Gamers will be able to play as their home nation and attempt to guide them from qualification, right through to the FIFA World Cup Final.
The game also features a complete and authentic online World Cup tournament, allowing players to compete against fans from rival countries. EA also says the game will be packed with innovations designed to capture the journey from qualification to the final tournament, with home and away strategies for every nation, situational tactics in-game, and altitude effects that fatigue players faster and even impact the flight of the ball.
The Wii version will see players taking on all 32 nations competing in South Africa in head-to-head challenges in Zakumi's Dream Team mode - Zakumi is the tournament mascot. Start out with random players, but along the way build a team by stealing an opposition player after each victory. It will also be possible to take your dream team to a friend's house on a Wii Remote.
2010 FIFA World Cup is scheduled for release throughout North America on April 27, 2010 and in stores throughout Asia and Europe beginning April 30, 2010.
