EA's 2010 FIFA World Cup confirmed

First screenshot tomorrow.

EA's lifted the lid on the official 2010 FIFA World Cup videogame and promises to release the first screenshot tomorrow.

"The first screenshot of 2010 FIFA World Cup will be posted live at www.facebook.com/EASPORTSFIFA," Tweeted EA Sports.

The existence of the game is as unsurprising as a yearly update to the core FIFA series, but nevertheless, this is the first EA has publicly spoken of it.

Like 2006 FIFA World Cup, this will focus on the globe's famous sporting event and ditch the drama of domestic leagues. What improvements there will be to the core FIFA 10 game, however, remains to be seen.

We expect team ratings to coincide with FIFA World Ranking up until this summer, when the tournament begins. Spain's currently top, followed by Brazil, Netherlands (surprisingly), Italy, Portugal and Germany.

France, Argentina, England and Croatia round out the top 10. USA's a much improved 14th.
