It’s Time For Kick Off In FIFA 14 For Android


When EA Sports launched FIFA 14 for iOS this morning, I wondered how long it would be before Android users would get their hands on this year’s biggest soccer title. We’re often forced to wait several weeks — if not months — for big titles to be make their way to Google Play.

But that’s not the case with this one. To my surprise, FIFA 14 is available on Android today as well, and you can download it now — for free — from the Amazon Appstore and Google Play.

Just like its iOS counterpart, FIFA 14 for Android features online multiplayer, a new game of the week feature, an intuitive new control system designed specifically for touch screens, and the popular FIFA Ultimate Team game mode.

It’s also the only soccer simulator that boasts real players from real teams, and real leagues, including the English Premier League, the Spanish La Liga, and the German Bundesliga. There are also 34 authentic stadiums to enjoy, and for the first time on mobile, full game commentary in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.


Like most of EA’s more recent titles, FIFA 14 is a “freemium” title that lets you play for free, but then encourages you to purchase in-app upgrades. Sometimes this model can ruin an otherwise excellent game, but that’s not the case with FIFA 14. You can still have plenty of fun with this title, even if you’re adamant you don’t want to spend a penny on it.

Online friendlies, game of the week, and Ultimate Team are all free to play, while an in-app purchase will also give you access to manager mode, tournaments, and kick off (a quick and easy way to jump into friendly matches).

You’ll need plenty of storage for FIFA 14; the game itself requires at least 1.3GB, and you’ll need more than that if you want to download the commentary and other additional content. You can find the game in Google Play and the Amazon Appstore now.
