FIFA 14 out now on iOS and Android, is free-to-play

New pay structure for EA's football series on mobiles

EA has released the iOS and Android versions of FIFA 14, both of which are free-to-play.

Upon installing the app (the download size is 1.17GB on iOS), players get free access to the entire Ultimate Team mode, Online Quick Match and Games Of The Week, which features six exhibition matches updated weekly. There is no limit to the number of matches that can be played in any of these three modes.

On top of this, players can pay £2.99 / $4.99 for the 'Premium' version if they wish to unlock Kick Off, Tournament and Manager Mode.

This year's instalment offers a new touch-based control scheme, in which taps, swipes and drags are used to control passing, shooting and player movement respectively. The traditional 'virtual d-pad' option is also still available.

As in the console versions, Ultimate Team mode lets players build their own dream team with packs of players. Packs can either be purchased with real world currency, or bought using coins earned in-game through winning matches and tournaments.

The mobile version of FIFA 14 features 33 leagues, over 600 licensed teams and more than 16,000 players.

In CVG's console FIFA 14 review, we said: "FIFA 14 returns as the same ludicrously comprehensive sports game it's ever been, where any one mode could easily see you through to next season and beyond. Those small and clumsy steps it takes backwards, courtesy of Precision Movement, do little to spoil the party. It may be slightly slower and a little worn out in the legs, but FIFA 14 is still king."
