FIFA 12 Creation Centre

FIFA 11 introduced Creation Centre that allowed everyone with an EA account to create players and teams and share those creations with everyone else. All FIFA 11 gamers were able to browse and select which players and teams they wanted to download to their consoles (Xbox 360 or PS3) and use them in selected offline (Kick Off) and online (Unranked Head to Head) game modes.

We saw more than four million players and teams downloaded for FIFA 11 and witnessed communities and forum discussions prosper around Creation Centre. And this encouraged us to work on a bigger, better Creation Centre for FIFA 12. 

We wanted to deliver improvements, new features and functionalities that all those Creation Centre fans around the globe have been asking for.

You might have already seen the countdown timer for the launch of the new website (if not, check it out), which gives you a glimpse of the features to come. Suffice to say that everything you built or used in Creation Centre for FIFA 11 will remain, be improved and extended, and continue to be free of charge. However, we are also adding a range of premium options, such as the ability to upload your own shirt sponsor images, for the serious Creators out there. These extra services will require the purchase of in-console downloadable Packs.

Unless you’re an EA SPORTS Season Ticket holder, in which case you get the full suite of Creation Centre content as part of the deal!

Use Existing FIFA 11 Creation Centre Players And Teams in FIFA 12!

  • You will be able to continue bookmarking, downloading and playing with players and teams created in FIFA 11 Creation Centre in your FIFA 12 game.
  • However, once the FIFA 12 Creation Centre website goes live, any new creations or edits to a player or a team will save those teams and players in the new FIFA 12 format. This means they will only work in FIFA 12 from that point on.
So that’s a lot of free stuff to be had. You can create up to 50 players, 50 teams and one tournament, while you can store up to 50 players, 24 teams, and one tournament at any time in your FIFA 12 game. And there’s no limit to how many times you can update, delete, or download your content (although keep in mind that the number of teams in a tournament counts towards the teams limit).

What’s more, anyone can download - free of charge - anything created by others who’ve picked up the following premium options...
