FIFA 14 News

The transfer market on Ultimate Team web app is still unavailable while the EA dev team is working to ensure long-term improvements to it. Here is their latest official statement on this issue:

Trading on console and the Mobile Companion App remain available while we continue to work on Transfer Market improvements for FIFA 14. The FUT Web App will continue to be available, but with trading disabled until further notice. 
  
We consider this a priority and have a team working on Transfers to make sure they are optimally functioning across all platforms. We appreciate your patience and apologize for the inconvenience.

As you can see from the message, you can still  use the transfer market on your console and the mobile companion app.

Last Wednesday, some lucky FIFA players received, for unknown reasons at that moment, many free gold packs in FUT 14 while others didn’t received anything. The reason behind these free packs was a system error in FUT that has since been corrected. If you received a pack, since this was a mistake from EA , it’s yours to keep.

Yesterday EA Sports announced that starting 29th May FUT players across all platforms will be able to enjoy for free the World Cup experience in their favourite game mode. FIFA 14 Ultimate Team: World Cup, a separate mode within FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT), lets players build their ultimate squad of players from all 32 National Teams attending this summer’s tournament in Brazil. FUT World Cup features all 32 National Team crests, National Team kits, the official adidas Brazuca match ball, the Estadio do Maracana, and an all-new theme within FUT 14. Players can improve their team to make them tournament contenders by acquiring new players and consumables from special Packs in the FIFA 14 Ultimate Team: World Cup Store. Every FUT World Cup Pack includes a free Gold Pack available for use in the traditional FIFA 14 Ultimate Team experience. FUT fans will also have the chance to write football history. With Online and Single Player tournament modes, players can compete through the group stage and knockout phases in order to win the FIFA World Cup. By winning matches, players will earn in-game virtual coins that can be used to acquire packs in the FIFA 14 Ultimate Team: World Cup Store to strengthen their squad. Fans can increase squad chemistry by finding and playing with players from the same country or governing confederation.

Bellow you can find FAQ’s regarding this new mode with screens attached to them, as well you can see the official trailer of this new amazing mode:
