FIFA 12 Career Mode – 7 Key Changes
Following announcements made this week, OXM have reported 7 vital changes to FIFA 12 Career Mode which are promised to improve the experience of the single player game mode. In no particular order, here is a look at those 7 key changes:
Players will no longer follow your every command like a robot. Like the real life game, players will moan and whine if you send them out onto the pitch with a newly healed fracture, will demand more wages if they believe they deserve better and even have opinions on how much they respect the club captain.
Transfer system: Deadline day madness
Transfer deadline days will be like the real thing, stressful, frantic and some what entertaining. Clubs will bid against you for transfer targets, negotiate prices when buying and selling players and test your resolve with shrewd bids for your star players.
Under the media microscope
The press will no longer reel off the scores like a Vidiprinter, but instead scrutinise your every public action. Just played your club captain out of position? The commentators will question every detail of your tactical choices and the press will want to know why you dared play him out of position. The press will also spread gossip about transfer news and comment on the rise and fall of celebrity players.
One thing that has been lacking in previous FIFA titles is the general match-day presentation. Well, no longer. FIFA 12 promises to bring Sky Sports style build up and pre-match team analysis, with the commentators discussing individual players and tactical decisions. A new default camera angle is also set to change the way FIFA looks.
FIFA 12 gives you the ability to send scouts out multiple times to see the same player in action. Instead of bidding for a player on a hunch, after seeing him on the pitch for about 5 minutes, you now have the ability to analyse him over a number of games – but beware, other clubs will cotton on and also send in the scouts.
Old Dogs can’t be taught new tricks
Older players will have less of a learning curve than players younger than them. Train a 16-year-old hot prospect and he will learn fast, whereas the more veteran players will find it hard to grasp new skills and will consequently level up slower – or not at all.
Wage and transfer budgets can be combined
More financial control means you’ll be able to budget accordingly to make that big name signing. Just be careful you don’t bankrupt the club.
