Will this version of FIFA have online team play? I have looked but didn't see anything.

Not sure be I do hope so. Just imagine an online team play tournament where you can do the world cup online playing as a 10 man team against the world. That would be awesome.

There's no 10 v 10 in World Cup.

The reasons are many.

1. 10 v 10 is a massive amount of work. Even just to do what was in FIFA 10 and make no improvements is a lot of days work.

2. We thought for a long time about what a 10 v 10 game mode would be in World Cup. With Online Clubs it's easy. You create a club, it's fictional & so there's little attachment. When you choose who you'll play as, the club members will tend to support different teams and so again there's little attachment.

That doesn't work with countries. Members of a "club" would usually be from the same country and tend to play as that country. So looking at our usage figures we deduced that there would be too little variety in matches in World Cup. They'd be way too many England v England v England v USA v France v Germany v England games. You'd get fed up of that.

3. With the time we then had we could innovate with new online modes, namely Online World Cup & World League Ladder. So you can still get your 10 v 10 fix in FIFA 10, and experience brand new online modes in World Cup.

So, no, it is not 10 vs 10 on FIFA World Cup
