Finally one of the most exciting pieces of news about FIFA 12 so far is here, as GamesCom 2011 kicks off with a demo release date announcement from EA Sports. The annual conference has finally begun in Cologne, Germany and as previously promised; during EA’s conference the company revealed that the demo will be available on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on September 13th.
In addition to the announcement, the company has also released a never before seen FIFA 12 trailer, which demonstrates some of the neat new gameplay that players will be experiencing when they purchase the game. The release date of the new title will not be available across all platforms however, until September 30th, though this is still earlier than past FIFA titles.
There have not been any specific details released about the actual contents of the demo yet, though if it’s like past demos that have been released, it will allow gamers to get a small taste of what’s to come as far as exhibitions go, with only a select amount of teams available to use and limited game length and settings. Last year EA included a feature which allowed other teams to be unlocked after a certain amount of games had been played during the demo, so it will be interesting to see if they include a similar feature this year or maybe something different.
Meanwhile the Premier League has kicked off in the UK, and to commemorate the opening weekend EA were also kind enough to release a new screenshot. More screens are likely to appear before the release of the game no doubt, so we will be doing our best to keep an eye out for them so we can bring them to our readers.
What do you think of the FIFA 12 details released so far? Will you be downloaded the demo come September 13th?
