Looks like there will be an update to add all teams and match ball to NG Fifa. As someone who purchased a PS4 expecting a WC Fifa, I'm pretty happy with the news. If they add official uniforms I would be ecstatic. I don't play FUT, so I'm really hoping we gets some new unis. Wording was a bit clunky, buy it sounds promising.

Do you mean World Cup style? If so then yes on offline and I don't remember if online has it too.
 
# 5 MDgolf @ 05/23/14 12:54 PM
Wow that's cool! Didn't expect that. Thought it was only a one match at a time thing.

Pretty pumped about this, especially after learning World Cup 14 wasnt coming out on next gen. Cant wait for offline mode, World Cup style. If all of the unis are updated then that's just icing on the cake. Even though I was a huge fan of WC South Africa, I couldnt bring myself to purchase WC Brazil due to it being only on old gen consoles. Oh, and eff FUT. EA already has my $60 for this game and that's all they're getting.

So nothing about "Kick-Off" mode other than it is for people who "Don't play #FUT?". It will be interesting to see how much freedom they give non FUT players to setup matches and a tournament with the WC teams. Hopefully it is more open ended to customization and isn't just some limited mode where it allows us to play preset matches based on the actual matches for that day.
 
# 8 BFig @ 05/24/14 04:22 PM
So you'll be to play the the actual World Cup with all the real teams? Or is it just a exhibition mode?
 
# 9 lnin0 @ 05/24/14 04:36 PM
Don't play #FUT? Also out 29 May, FIFA World Cup Kick-Off mode comes to #FIFA14 players on XB1 & PS4 - free update! pic.twitter.com/eQlvk7hJKh

so will anything be available to use in Pro Clubs? like maybe the stadium?
 
# 11 BFig @ 05/25/14 11:35 AM
Hopefully the USA's away shorts aren't messed up like they are in the actual game for ps3 and 360. They should have red shorts, not blue.

It looks better than real life with the blue shorts, but it would be nice to have the actual kit.

I wish that FIFA games would allow you to mix and match kits like you can on Madden, NCAA, and The Show.

Pretty sure you won't be able to create your own World Cup tournament with the national squads. Here's a quote from Gamespot:

EA also adds that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of FIFA 14 will receive a World Cup Kick Off mode that allows players to play matches using the World Cup kits as any of the national teams competing. There's no full world cup tournament coming, though, as that's saved for the PS3/360 versions of the official tie-in game.

Looks like you can play one-off matches using World Cup teams and kits, but can't do an actual tournament except in the FUT mode. That's a pretty big bummer for me, as I have no interest in FUT.

My thoughts exactly. Disappointed.
 
# 15 lnin0 @ 05/26/14 01:56 PM
If Kick-Off gets all the teams, kits, ball and one stadium for free on next gen consoles is better than nothing.
 
# 16 uncpride @ 05/28/14 12:07 PM
Okay so I NEVER have went into FUT in any fifa I've played. So my question about this is, do I HAVE to create my own team and buy packs to play the world cup, or will I be able to play the world cup offline with the real teams and group play?

Thats the million dollar question, I believe you can only play friendlies with the actual world cup teams, no World Cup tournament with them... From the info I have read online.

I guess we will really find out tomorrow.
 
# 18 TheMilkman @ 05/30/14 04:09 AM
For the actual World Cup tournament in FUT you won't be able to just pick a team. When the game starts you will get a free pack with random players in it that will make up a random starting 11. You can then put that into the tournament or go and buy more packs for different players. The non FUT stuff is just friendlies.

I love it personally but I get some people just want the actual tournament. The great news for people that play FUT is that apparently for each pack you open in the World Cup DLC you get a free gold pack in the main game.
