  • FIFA 17 coming to EA Access Vault this month
    Posted April 6th, 2017 at 5:15 pm 1 Comment »
    EA Sports has announced the official date for FIFA 17's addition to the Vault through the EA Access and Origin Access subscription services. The company states that the game will make it in on April 21. With that date in mind new Vault titles have consistently gone in a day prior to their official declarations so look for it on the afternoon of Thursday the 20th. This will be right in line with the point at which FIFA 16 was added last year. FIFA 17 will be the final game out of EA Spor...

    Besides another NBA Live cancellation and other news on the upcoming fiscal year, Electronic Arts yesterday revealed that FIFA 17 outsold every other video game in 2016 worldwide. That's not necessarily a surprise but that the franchise continues to grow year-over-year may be one. The latest game in the series is up 8% compared to FIFA 16 over the same stretch of time. The biggest reason for that may be the new story mode "The Journey" that was introduced in FIFA 17. Over 10 million pe...

  • The Journey has proven story modes in sports games are here to stay
    Posted November 2nd, 2016 at 1:15 pm 10 Comments »
    The NBA 2K series has shown continued growth over recent years due in part to the strength of its MyCareer story mode. It's was only natural that other companies would take notice and examine doing the same for their sports games. EA Sports is no stranger to the concept of narrative-driven modes - Fight Night Champion in 2011 was based around that very thing - but it's a new initiative for their crop of yearly league licensed franchises which have largely played it safe since the debut of Ul...
