FIFA 14 Windows Phone 8 app now available on the Windows Phone Store

A native version of FIFA 14 has finally arrived on the Windows Phone Store for Windows Phone 8.

The popular football game lets you earn and trade or buy and sell FIFA players to create a fantasy football team. You can custom pick your play style, formation, kits and more, then compete in tournaments to earn coins, to spend on new players. Described as "the most authentic football game on Windows Phone 8", the new FIFA 14 features 34 leagues, as well as 600 licensed teams and 16,000 players.

You can grab FIFA 14 free of charge, but it does include in-app purchases like purchase packs. Keep in mind that you can enable or disable in-app purchases through the Kids Corner section of your Windows Phone settings. Additionally, for the first time, you can listen to commentaries in a variety of languages including English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

"FIFA 14 brings real players, real teams, and real leagues right to your Windows Phone where you can use touch controls to pass, shoot, and tackle right on the field in stadiums from around the world," explained Microsoft in a post, published on Friday, via the Windows blog.
