FIFA 14 Ultimate Team: World Cup, Kick-Off Mode delayed (update)

New, 2 comments

The FIFA 14 Ultimate Team: World Cup and Kick-Off mode features for FIFA 14 Ultimate Team have been delayed due to "unforeseen issues," according to a post on the EA forums.

World Cup — a mode that allows players to build their own group in Ultimate Team from players participating in the World Cup Finals — was slated to launch today for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of FIFA 14. Kick-Off mode, which adds the 32 World Cup teams and the official match ball to non-competitive FIFA 14 modes, was planned for release on the PS4 and Xbox One versions.

"Knowing that our players have been so excited for these new modes made it a tough decision," reads the post. "However, as we progressed through final testing we encountered unforeseen issues that would affect all users who downloaded the update, so it’s important to address them first before release."

The FIFA development team notes that it hopes to have an update on the features' launch in the coming days.

FIFA 14, launched last September on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC and in November on PS4 and Xbox One. Check out our review for more details.

Update: EA launched the World Cup content for FIFA 14 Ultimate Team on May 30, according to the series' Twitter account.
