FIFA 14 may have Lionel Messi on the cover of the game once again, but we can tell you that Barcelona FC as a whole is going to play a much bigger part in FIFA 14 compared to previous editions of the game. EA Sports has announced a partnership with the massive club, ensuring that 3D models of the current squad as well as the Nou Camp are faithfully re-created to give FIFA fans the most authentic Barcelona experience seen to date.
Along with Messi, players who choose Barcelona as their team of choice on FIFA 14 will also see the most accurate representation of other Barcelona players on pitch as well. These include the likes of Xavi, Iniesta, Fabregas, Pique and new signing, the Brazilian sensation Neymar.
To give you an idea of just what it is like to play for Barcelona, EA Sports has managed to interview a whole host of star names in a new trailer. Watch the trailer below and you’ll see the insight from Messi, Xavi and Iniesta on growing up through the ranks of Barcelona’s youth system La Masia and just some of the culture that is instilled into the players compared to other clubs.
There’s even a few words from man of the moment Cesc Fabregas, despite the fact that he may be on his way to Manchester United next season. With the partnership between EA and Barcelona FC now in tact, expect to see the most accurate representation of the Nou Camp seen to date.
It’s great news for Barcelona fans, but will we see some other partnerships announced within the coming weeks? Let us know if you’ll be playing as Barcelona as your primary team or not.
