EA SPORTS FC MOBILE will immerse players in next-level gameplay, with key features such as:
True Player Personality: The world’s most recognizable players come to life with True Player Personality. Authentic running styles, penalty kick styles and celebrations for certain players take EA SPORTS FC MOBILE to a new level of authenticity.
Dynamic Game Speed: Speed of mobile devices and tactile games, allowing for more player personality and attribute impact on the field.
Elite Shooting System: The revised shooting system allows impact players to show up on the scoreboard and make their mark. Feel rewarded when you make smart shooting decisions, both inside and outside the penalty area, on a cross or volley. Take control of your favorite attackers and lead your team to victory.
Power Shot: Launch a powerful shot that leaves goalies gasping for air. Charge your shot when you have space to utilize the full potential of the Power Shot. Balance the risk and reward of the Power Shot to destroy your opponent and take the lead.
Knock On Dribble: Get your fast dribblers up to top speed faster by tapping the ball forward into space. Take advantage of your opponent’s high defensive back line by getting your fast attackers fluidly forward. Dribbling with true speeders takes on a whole new feel.
Hard Tackle: Make your presence felt and assert dominance in defense and midfield by launching a smashing stand tackle. Split your opponent’s attackers off the ball or create a final defensive block with new Hard Tackles.
