FIFA Mobile 2017 Edition Released, Aims to Bring Football to Everyone
HIGHLIGHTS
Download size is less than 100MB
Available on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone
New features include Attack Mode, Leagues, and Plans
Two weeks after the release of FIFA 17, EA Sports has delivered a new update for its mobile counterpart in FIFA Mobile. As always, the game is free with in-app purchases to boot, and is available on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. The game is called different things on the three platforms – on the App Store, it’s called FIFA Mobile Football, on Google Play, FIFA Mobile Soccer, and on Windows Store it becomes FIFA 17 Mobile.

EA Sports says that the game is built for the “mobile gamer”, and hence it has shrunk the download size to under 100MB, so as to reach smartphone owners across the globe, except China – the game isn’t launching in the country. FIFA Mobile contains 30 leagues, with 650 clubs and over 16,000 footballers.

“When developing FIFA Mobile, we focused on giving players the most exciting parts of football in quick and fun bursts while prioritising gameplay and engaging, new ways to play FIFA on-the-go,” senior producer Todd Batty said in a statement. “This meant building a game that was optimised for the mobile player resulting in a fun and social game that loads quickly, runs smoothly on a wider range of devices, and has a small download size relative to the depth of features and content in the game.”

There are three new features, all exclusive to the mobile version. Attack Mode is a new turn-based, asynchronous multiplayer mode which is all about, well, attacking. You’ll be given a bunch of scenarios in which to score from, and ultimately out-score the opponent. The more you score, the more you get in-game “fans” which lets you climb divisions.
Another new feature is Leagues, which allows you to create or join a league with up to 32 players. You will be able to complete “cooperative league achievements, compete for bragging rights in inter-league championships, and challenge other Leagues in FIFA Mobile tournaments”.

Completing the round-up of new features is Plans, which is about making the most of unwanted items to get better ones through in-game rewards.

Ultimate Team mode is getting an overhaul of sorts, too. EA Sports is dropping contracts, training items and other consumables in favour of simple squad building. You can have a total of 27 players in multiple formations and tactics, and switch between those as you like.

The game will be continuously updated with new content that reflects events happening in the real world of football, EA Sports said. Early response to the latest update seems to be heavily negative, according to reviews on Google Play.

Pokemon Go Cheatsheet: 10 Things to Know About the Game That Has Everyone Hooked

Pokemon Go Cheatsheet: 10 Things to Know About the Game That Has Everyone Hooked

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Pokemon Go is a mobile game based on the classic Nintendo hit
  • You find Pokemon by walking around in the real world
  • To capture Pokemon you point your camera at the virtual monster

Right now, it feels like the world is divided neatly into two groups: those who are playing Pokemon Go, and those who are wondering what on Earth the rest of us are talking about when we complain about how there are no Pokestops nearby, or gloat that we found a Geodude in our own kitchen!

Pokemon is an international phenomenon that got started more than 20 years ago, in 1995. The video game has inspired comic books, movies, and television series, so even if you never played the game, you might recognise its weird mish-mash monsters, or might at least remember the name Pikachu.

Pokemon Go is the latest installment in the franchise, and its first game for smartphones, developed by Niantic Labs, who earlier created a fairly similar (if not quite as successful) game called Ingress. With Pokemon Go, the team seems to have landed a super hit. Here’s everything you need to know about Pokemon Go, from the obvious, to the mind-blowing.

  1. Pokemon Go is a game for smartphones based on Nintendo’s classic Pokemon games.
  2. It’s available for both Android and iOS. It officially hasn’t launched in India yet, but is easy to get if you have an Android phone.
  3. It uses your phone’s camera to show you cute monsters (Pokemon) you can collect for points. You can also train these Pokemon up and make them battle in “Gyms”.
  4. Less than a week after its release, Pokemon Go is already more popular than Tinder.
  5. To find Pokemon to collect, and gyms to battle in, you have to walk around in the real world. Your character in the game walks and turns when you walk and turn.
  6. Some things, like hatching Pokemon eggs, require you to walk a set distance to accomplish – picked up a rare egg? Prepare to walk for 10 kilometers to get your Pokemon.
  7. Getting people out of the house means that a lot of strange and weird things are happening to Pokemon Go players who go into strange alleys looking for Pokemon – including one girl who found a dead body!
  8. Niantic has been overwhelmed with the demand for Pokemon Go, and the biggest complaint on Twitter right now is that the game’s servers cannot keep up. This is the reason why the game’s international release has been delayed.
  9. If you are on the iPhone, the app has full access to your Google account, which is obviously excessive for a game. The company has stated that this is a mistake it will address with an update to the app.
  10. Pokemon is a contraction for Pocket Monsters. The original game was made to give kids a feeling of what it was like to go out and collect things. The new game makes that a reality.
