Posted by Ars Technic on August 14, 2019 06:04:18In the wake of the recent news of EA Sports introducing the first official Ultimate Team game mode, EA Sports CEO John Riccitiello has weighed in on the subject, saying that Ultimate Team will have “some fun” with its upcoming release.
Speaking to IGN, Riccitio confirmed that EA is planning to release the mode sometime in 2018, and that the mode will have something to do with the upcoming release of Ultimate Team: The Ultimate Team Edition.
“It’ll have some fun with it.
We don’t know when exactly, but it’ll be in the next year or two.
It’ll be something that’s not something that you see at this point, so it’s a new thing that we’re trying to make sure that we deliver,” he said.”
We think that it’s something that can help us really get people engaged in our product and help us get the game into people’s hands and make them feel like they’re getting a really good game.”
Riccitio didn’t specify when the mode would be available, but he did confirm that it will be a new feature for the Ultimate Team edition.
“That’s a really big thing for us.
It’s something we’re very excited about,” he told IGN.”
I think we’ve been doing a really great job of not putting new content in, but that’s a big thing we’re going to continue to do.”
Riccitiello also discussed some of the major changes in the game that will come with Ultimate Team, and the new game modes in particular.
“First of all, we’re not going to do it for every game, but there’s some of them that we are very excited to be launching with,” he explained.
“And then we’ll also be releasing the new gameplay mode that we’ve made for the game, which is called ‘Super Team’ [for the team mode].”
“And there’s a whole bunch of different things, and they’re going all different directions, but I think we’re making some great strides.
It has a really fun, fun feel, and we’ll keep iterating on it.”
