"We are excited to extend UEFA's mission of promoting European football at every level of the game through our EA SPORTS simulation of the EURO 2004 final tournament event," said Jan Bolz, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for EA Europe. "Combining EA's global expertise in football videogames with UEFA's passionate European fan base will give football fans endless opportunity to relive the excitement and drama of EURO 2004."
In EURO 2004 mode players can play as any of the 51 European nations. Players can arrange and play friendly matches against other nations or play through the tournament going from qualifying, to playoffs and into the finals. In addition to tracking injuries and suspensions, a new dynamic morale system will track players' morale, which will fluctuate based on individual and team performances and affect player abilities on the field.
The official UEFA EURO 2004 videogame is currently under development at EA's Canadian studio, the company's largest, which is world-renowned for creating critically-acclaimed and best selling sports games. The officially licensed EURO 2004 videogame is scheduled for release to coincide with the EURO 2004 finals in Portugal this summer.
