The new desEsports Extrasmight look familiar, by the way, as it’s a direct nod to the well-known triangle icon that appears in-game over the head of the selected pro. According to EA Sports, the triangle should also stand for passing techniques and standard situations.
EA Sports is self-confident
In conclusion, it should be noted once again that EA Sports is aiming for a continuation of its former FIFA series this year, to the extent that you are used to from previous years. So you don’t have to expect a slimmed down game after the end of the FIFA partnership – even on the Nintendo Switch.
In a recent interview with The Mirror, EA Sports Vice President David Jackson speaks of “huge self-confidence” into your own brand and names two pillars that are essential for the upcoming offshoot: authenticity and innovation.
So you should not only get a game that best represents the reality of football, including many real leagues, teams, players, etc., but also an offshoot that “new, engaging experiences” offers. From July we will find out what they are.
What do you all mean: In terms of content, will everything remain the same for the most part or will EA use the upheaval to implement the promised introduce real innovations across modes?
