EA and Rockstar to launch FIFA GTA crossover

Virtual FIFA kingpin Blepp Twatter
Game designing giants Electronic Arts (EA) and Rockstar are collaborating on a crossover, linking the game worlds of their FIFA and Grand Theft Auto marquee titles, which are available on the popular XBox, Playstation 4 and PC.

As well as being able to control the fortunes of sporting idols Messi and Ronaldo on the pitch, players will also be able to take on the role of a FIFA executive, in a virtual underworld where they can rise to power in the organisation through corruption, bribery, extortion, kickbacks, vote rigging and cover-ups.

The first game in the series will start in the run up to the historical Brazil World Cup 2014 competition, with future downloadable content "Qatar Rising" available for a one off payment of $5 million in uncut diamonds and 20 camels.

Reviews of the pre-alpha suggest that players are frustrated that it is seemingly impossible to unseat the shady autocratic in game FIFA boss Blepp Twatter by any means. The designers have responded that this is a "feature" intended to provide players with a more realistic gaming experience.

The game is earmarked for a 12th of Never 2099 release on no platforms at all, because this is all clearly fantasy and obviously bears no resemblance to the afore mentioned organisations whatsoever.
