FIFA 13 Gamescom Details: Demo, Match Day, Head To Head Upgrade

EA's Gamescom press conference featured a ton of new feature details about FIFA 13, including the new Match Day dynamic commentary and a demo release date.

FIFA 13 will feature updating 'Match Day' commentary that reflects real-life developments in the football world. Commentators will pundit on real stats, transfers and performance, connecting the game with the football season in an entirely new way and allowing fans to follow their club through gameplay (as an example, the press conference footage showcased a Manchester derby accompanied by appropriate sound bites). Match Day will also suggest matches based on upcoming real-world fixtures. However, we're not entirely sure how EA Sports actually plans on doing the commentary part - will they record new sound effects on a weekly basis or update at incredibly infrequent intervals?

Ultimate Team is back in a big way, but the player-collecting mode will come with a comprehensive tutorial for new players. Team of the week challenges and full seasons will also be supported.

FIFA 12's Head To Head seasons mode will receive a major upgrade, putting the 2v2 co-op play at the heart of the package and offering new challenges to strive for with a mate. You'll even be able to view your accomplishments in a trophy cabinet.

Finally, a demo is slated to arrive on September 11th, ahead of FIFA 13's launch on practically every platform imaginable later next month. It will includes the Match Day functionality so we can try it out for ourselves.

Match Day commentary could just use generic blocks like:

*player name* is settling in at his new club well, after leaving *club* in January.

*player name* will be looking to perform well on his comeback after an *INTEGER* match ban for racism.
