FIFA series boss David Rutter has revealed details of the new features and improvements in FIFA 12
's Career mode via the FIFA Soccer Blog.
News and transfer engines have been improved, and the all important transfer deadline day will now be a feature in itself. Game time will be slowed to advance by the hour, allowing you to wheel and deal right up to the window closing. You will also be given the option to stall transfers if you're working on multiple targets.
Scouting returns, but only for youth players. Three scouts can be used at any time, with the location and duration of each scouting mission down to you. Scouts themselves have varying skill, with the top scouts costing you more in wages.
Once scouted, youth players can be sent to your youth academy, where you can track their progress before signing them professionally or showing them the exit door.
Player stories, form, morale and growth have also been reworked. You'll have to manage your whole squad carefully, or run the risk of players handing in transfer requests, losing morale and becoming injured.
Also released today are some new screens of some of the fast flowing match action, along with the new, temporarily named, Juventus Arena. FIFA 12
is scheduled for release September 27th in North America and September 30th in Europe.
