FIFA Soccer 13 lands on iPhone, iPad with online multiplayer -- at last!

EA Sports has just launched its latest iteration of the hugely successful soccer franchise FIFA 13. The new version of FIFA has some nice new features over and above last year’s version but the most significant is the long overdue ability to play against your friends in an online multiplayer mode.

JOIN THE CLUB! Are you ready for the most authentic football game on the App Store? FIFA 13 is more realistic than ever – with all the authenticity and innovation you’ve come to expect from the FIFA franchise. Matches come to life with groundbreaking graphics and the most responsive controls ever delivered on iOS.Challenge friends and other football fans from all over the world with the all-new Online Multiplayer mode! For the first time ever! Compete with friends anytime, anywhere using Online Multiplayer. Rise to the top of the Leaderboards and use superstars like Messi and Benzema to crush your competitors around the world.

FIFA 13 offers some great soccer gaming features like teams from 30 of the top leagues in the world, 500 officially licensed teams with real player names, management modes and of course the long awaited multi-player. Unfortunately multi-player is done via EA’s own Origin service rather than Apple’s Game Centre but if it works well, who really cares.

FIFA 13 is a universal binary so works great on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and is compatible with the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad, iPad 2, the new iPad, iPod touch 3 (16 GB and above), and iPod touch 4. EA claims that the best gaming experience will be on the iPhone 4S, iPad 2 or the new iPad; no mention of the iPhone 5 in the write up although they do claim it is compatible.

  • I was waiting for this release... finally, I love the 12 now onto 13...
  • Love it- online: FIFAPRO757
  • Agree, this feature was missing!! I was getting bored playing the cpu at the Pro level...Finally some real action :)
  • iOS 6 broke the GamePad! Did they fix it yet?
  • will you be able to play against ps3 users?
  • excited
  • Awesome, nothing beats playing Fifa in the bath! Lol!
  • love me some fifa. works great on the iphone-- improved graphics, better animations, deeper gameplay. but, somehow, the ipad version is a disaster at launch. you can touch the screen, but nothing happens-- except for when you touch the origen menu, you get taken to a page offering other EA games. how this game made it to consumers in this fashion is beyond the imagination...
  • It's not working on the New iPad
  • Looks good Chris, even more so today since it just went down to 69p in the app store good price if ask me.
