Legendary footballers such as Pelé, Patrick Vieira, Freddie Ljungberg, Ruud Gullit, and Gary Lineker will be playable in FIFA 14 Ultimate Team only on Xbox consoles. This season, fans will be able to craft their FIFA 14 Ultimate Team with a mix of legendary players on the pitch alongside today’s stars on Xbox One and Xbox 360. Microsoft also announced an Xbox One Day One Edition bundle in Europe that includes FIFA 14, while stocks last, along with a FIFA 14 console bundle for Xbox 360 later this year.
Each Legend will have their own distinct look, unique attributes, and custom biography, and will be randomly included in Gold Packs in FIFA 14 Ultimate Team on Xbox One and Xbox 360. Fans will be able to acquire Legends in Gold Packs or through the Transfer Market, and then compete with their squads in special tournaments that showcase the skills and flair that made each of these players legendary. Each Legend will be available in packs for a limited time and at different times throughout the season. Joining Xbox and EA SPORTS Senior Vice President and Group General Manager Matt Bilbey on stage to make the announcements, football superstars Freddie Ljungberg and Ruud Gullit were confirmed as two of the first Legends to join FIFA 14 Ultimate Team on Xbox later this year.
FIFA 14 comes to Xbox 360 on 27 September in Europe, and will be available on Xbox One from launch.
