Well ahead of its console big brother which is set to be released on September 24th comes FIFA 14 [Free] for iOS devices. It's a free 1.16GB download with two main types of IAP: In-game currency, and a single $5.99 unlock to shift the game into its "premium" mode which enables kickoff, tournament, and manager modes. So far it seems like a pretty simple payment model which is a breath of fresh air compared to Madden.

We're still waiting to see if this is some sort of soft launch for the game and EA is waiting for the 24th to pull the "official" release lever or if it's going to be available in all regions. I suppose we'll see tonight if it's available in the USA at 11:00 PM eastern or not.

      My brother would be all over this to be honest, he has other 2 soccer games and I keep telling him "they're all the same" and he would give me a stern "NO!" Haha, good times. ;)

    The guy in the right corner of the picture looks like an ape.

    • heresandypandy

      "The guy"? That's Leo Messi, arguably the greatest football player of all time. Calling him "the guy" is like not knowing who Michael Jordan is.

    • marc0313

      Why are you even here if you think that's, "a guy"?

      • B30

        So it's a gal??

  • ImJPaul

    Why do they do a premium mode for FIFA and not for Madden?!?! Irritating beyond measure.

    • D-Vader

      Here is my guess:
      The majority of EA customers reside in America. The most popular sport in America is probably American football. Soccer is still a growing sport here in America. More fans = more money.

  • Bloodangel

    What's manager mode like? Can you watch matches? I don't like player manager where you have to play matches when in manager mode.... Prefer to manager and just watch

    • D-Vader

      In FIFA 13, in manager mode, you could choose to simulate or play a match.

  • Bloodangel

    If you simulate, do you get to watch the match or match highlights using the 3d engine? Or is it just dots on a pitch or txt commentary.
    I'm hoping manager mode uses the proper game engine for matches

    • D-Vader

      There are two options. There is a quick simulation that fully simulates the match. Then there is the visual simulation which shows the time, score, and basic commentary which is all simulated. No player graphic support is there.

      • Bloodangel

        Damn :(
        Is this in FIFA 13? Or is FIFA 14 same too

        I hope it had visual match for management

    My brother would be all over this to be honest, he has other 2 soccer games and I keep telling him "they're all the same" and he would give me a stern "NO!" Haha, good times. ;)

  • Kane

  • datoamo

    In Israel not yet available.....

  • Leighton

    Real Madrid rosters are not updated. Ozil is still on the team and Bale is not with RM.

  • ZarieoZ

    Well I'm glad that maybe EA is finally getting it & offering this premium payment. Hope they'll continue like that & that every body follow along, hope its not just a test or so.

  • Magnum0ik

    Is in the Uk store now. £2.99 to unlock the full game. Don't mind if I do!!

  • Dreamer2go

    If you want to play for free with just online mode, I'm sure many people are happy about it. But for $4.99 for FIFA 14 to unlock all features (FIFA 13 costs around the same as a single game), I think this is a good buy...

  • worldcitizen1919

    Fifa 14 IS OUT!!! No news here. Nothing nada. Too busy reviewing all the kids games and letting this pass by?? Shame shame!

    I've been playing it all day yet nothing on this site it's even out.
