[Gamescom 2013] EA’s upcoming FIFA 2014 will be free-to-play for mobile gamers

There has been some confusion as of late as to whether or not FIFA 2014 would be making an appearance on Android. Well EA has cleared that confusion up during Gamescom 2013 by announcing that the game will be a free-to-play title this time when it is released for mobile gamers to play.

This news comes as EA continues their transition from releasing paid games to mostly free-to-play titles onto iOS and Android. In fact just about every game lately from EA has been free-to-play with new additions to their current franchises that were once paid games now being free-to-play. This will probably make some people happy while it will most likely piss off other fans of the FIFA franchise.

As for how exactly EA plans to monetize FIFA 2014, no real details have been announced so your guess is as good as ours right now. There could be IAPs for stadiums, team customization or other things for all we know. Pair this news up with the fact that FIFA 2014 will also have new touchscreen controls, which basically eliminated any sort of onscreen joystick and revolving more around swipe gestures and screen taps, how successful FIFA 2014 ends up being will be interesting to watch.

So when can you expect to get your hands on this game? EA hasn’t announced any real release date yet but a safe bet would be the game launching at the same time its console brethren is released which is September 27th, 2013. When further details are announced, we’ll be sure to post an update. Until then you can join in the discussion over on our forums about FIFA 2014.
