The Euro 2012 addition to Fifa 12 shall be DLC rather than a disc-based continental kickabout as has previously been the case. This we already knew. What I didn’t expect was for the DLC to contain a new mode which combines world conquering with foot-to-ball, namely the Expedition Mode. Travel the continent, crushing nations and stealing their best and brightest feet, along with the legs and torsos those feet are attached to. It hardly looks like grand strategy but I quite like the idea of constructing a team by conquering rather than by throwing wodges of cash at cigar smoking agents who, one day soon, will start to raise young boys like puppies on a puppy farm. The video below explains all.
A vaguely interesting new mode, a tentative step toward a ball and boot boardgame, a ridiculous quest to complete a mosaic tacked on top of it all. Unless the final image is a compromising photograph of Sep Blatter and a mongoose that could lead to his downfall, does anyone really care?
