Electronic Arts sent over a press release, unveiling that FIFA Manage 10 will included an online mode which will allow gamers to play against each other via LAN or online. Additionally, up to 40 international leagues will be available in FIFA Manager 10 and players will also benefit from over 400 enhancements within the offline mode, many of which are based on feedback from the fan community. One of the first things changed is the size of the football pitch in the 3D match. EA is now using the full 100% instead of just 85% of the real size. The size was decreased for FIFA Manager 06 to make it possible to use the original stadiums from FIFA. This is now no longer necessary and it leads to a more realistic gameplay, especially passes into free space are now a lot more common. The animation system was also changed - the existing animations was replaced by the new FIFA 09 animations. In addition, if you will start with a first division club, you get a higher manager level right from the start. Then after getting sacked you still have a chance to find a good club again.
