One thing we've all come to expect from this era of games is that the launch of the current year's edition of a sports game franchise means that previous version of the title will probably be affected in some negative way, largely through server closures. As a result, it probably wasn't a surprise when FIFA 12
felt the sting brought on by the upcoming FIFA 13
. Unfortunately, however, the advent of the new title directly impacted a pair of achievements for FIFA 12
, and given that EA is the culprit behind publishing the game, many felt that their opportunity to complete the title had passed.
Thankfully, concerned gamers took to EA's forums (you can go ahead and thank them in the comments below), and EA actually listened. The publisher has activated a challenge for the EURO 2012
DLC that now makes the following two achievements obtainable:
The My Euro achievement in FIFA 12 worth 111 pointsWin a match in each UEFA EURO 2012™ game mode
EA has stated that the challenge will last a year, so while you don't have to log in and take care of it today, do keep in mind that this is more or less a temporary stay of execution on these achievements. Don't drag your feet on getting them done!
Thanks to all the members of the community who sent this one in!
