EA: FIFA 12 PC same as console versions

"Moment PC gamers have been waiting for."

FIFA 12 is as good on PC as it is on console, EA has insisted.

The new Player Impact Engine, which aims to deliver real-world physicality to the game, is included in the PC version.

This means the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions have an identical game engine and feature set – a first for the long-running series.

"This is the moment all PC gamers have been waiting for, as they are finally going to fully experience the award-winning FIFA gameplay on their preferred platform," executive producer Kaz Makita said.

"PC fans are going to enjoy the highest quality gameplay, deepest game modes and truest graphics ever developed for the platform, including our new live service EA Sports Football Club."

EA Sports Football Club, announced at E3, is a live service that connects players to the real-world game.

The first PC FIFA 12 screenshot is below.
