FIFA is continuing to prove its dominance in the football game field, as EA Sports has just announced that FIFA 10 has sold more than 4.5 million units worldwide - a 26 per cent increase over the same period a year ago with FIFA 09.
With 3 million games played online every day (bringing a total of 113m games over the last two months), EA also took the time to re-iterate FIFA 10?s title as the fastest-selling sports game in the world and 1.7 million units sold through to European retail in its launch week. The company say its latest football game is the top selling title in Europe in 2009.
To celebrate this milestone in the franchise?s history, EA Sports has said it will be launching a new piece of DLC for FIFA 10 called Ultimate Team - an expansion to a familiar game mode from FIFA 09, which sees you lead a Dream Team through many tournaments and dynamic challenges.
?FIFA 10 Ultimate Team adds a lot more authenticity to a unique game that will update with new challenges and content over time,? said Producer Paul Hossack. ?We now have over 7,000 players from 27 leagues available, from which gamers will craft one or multiple squads to show their mastery of the revamped, more realistic chemistry system, and compete in tournaments with exciting requirements and rewards. On top of that, we?ll release new tournaments and other updates regularly to keep the experience fresh and exciting.
FIFA 10 Ultimate Team is coming to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live services in February 2010.
