For more check out our full 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil review.

Electronic Arts has announced a new FIFA game just in time for 2014’s World Cup in Brazil. The game, appropriately enough titled 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, will appear on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on April 15.

The news isn’t surprising, as EA has released World Cup game every four years since 1998. Before that, three other World Cup games were released under different publishers. The game will be a standalone title set to coincide with the event in Brazil. It won’t interfere with the release of FIFA 15 though, although EA Sports’ annual soccer game has yet to be officially announced yet. Assuming the publisher follows does what it’s done in past years, the annual offering should be released in September or October, just as the previous dozen were.

The World Cup game will feature “203 national teams, 7,469 players, 19 officially licensed managers, and 21 new stadiums including all 12 authentic stadiums from Brazil.” It also features the new “Road to Rio de Janeiro” mode, that takes players across 14 stadiums throughout Brazil. Regular tournament updates will also be delivered to the player via 50 hours of recorded content.

Along with the other modes, the game will feature a standard “Road to the FIFA World Cup” mode, as well as the “Captain Your Country” mode where you “work your way through the squad list and lead your country through qualifying and to FIFA World Cup glory.” There are more than 60 real scenarios taken from real-world World Cup qualifiers as well. 

In short, it is everything you would expect of a World Cup soccer game. And if the use of the word “soccer” there rather than “football” irked you, then 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil is probably a game for you. No word yet on price, but we should have that soon.
