In a surprise move EA Sports have announced today that UEFA Euro 2012 will be only available as a downloadable expansion pack for FIFA 12. The European Championships kick-off in Poland and Ukraine on June 8th and EA Sports have normally released a full retail for the recent tournaments.

However in a break with tradition they have decided that their Euro 2012 title will be available for £15.99 on the Playstation Network and PC or 1800 MS points on the 360. The game features 53 UEFA member national teams and all eight official stadiums in the tournament. Players will be able to progress through the tournament or play online.

Meanwhile a live service will drive real-life storylines into the game from the qualifying campaign and the tournament itself, enabling fans to relive dramatic moments with challenges based on real-life matches. Challenges will enable fans to earn experience points and level up their EA SPORTS Football Club profile.

"This game will tap into the passion fans have for their national teams by capturing all of the national rivalries in-game, and re-creating all the emotion of the UEFA EURO 2012 tournament," said Producer Sebastian Enrique. "We are utilizing the best-playing FIFA videogame ever, driving live, digital content created from the biggest headlines from the tournament into the game, and offering an exclusive new mode that will challenge gamers in unique and compelling ways."

There is also an Expedition Mode which was designed for Euro 2012 which allows players to build, manage and compete with a customised team against other European nations, crafting the perfect strategy for European domination. Fans will choose their favourite European player or FIFA 12 Virtual Pro to captain their customised team, win matches to earn better players from defeated nations, and then defeat the best nations to earn the best players in a campaign quest to defeat all 53 countries and complete the journey to conquer Europe.

The game will be available to download from April 24th.
