Yep, I had to use it again.

Very, very many of you are excited for the new modes coming to FIFA 14. That’s natural, the tournament kicks off in just two weeks. FIFA 14’s Ultimate Team mode was supposed to be getting a new update today to allow you to play out your own World Cup fantasies. Likewise, the new-gen versions of the game were supposed to get a Kick-Off mode, bringing the 32 competing teams and their livery in to the game. Unfortunately for your football fans, the world cup updates have been delayed.

EA currently as no idea when they’ll be offering the free content updates which were expected today.

Here’s what EA posted on its FIFA forums yesterday.

To ensure the best possible experience, we have decided to delay the launch of FIFA 14 Ultimate Team: World Cup (PC/PS3/PS4/360/XB1) and the World Cup Kick-Off mode (XB1/PS4). 

Knowing that our players have been so excited for these new modes made it a tough decision. 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.

Our team is currently working hard to have the update ready to release in the coming days.

On Thursday evening (EU time) we will keep you updated on our progress.

Be sure to follow @EASPORTSFIFA for further updates on FUT World Cup and World Cup Kick-Off.

That’s unfortunate stuff. If you really want to relive the World Cup, there’s that ruddy Brazil 2014 game for those old systems – even if it is a broken mess.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
