FIFA Online 2 was a free to play downloadable massively multiplayer online football game jointly developed by EA Singapore and Neowiz Games, published by Electronic Arts and distributed and localized by numerous distributors around Asia. Originally released in South Korea in 2006 using the FIFA 06 engine, the game was upgraded soon to the FIFA 07 engine, where it is still used today. FIFA Online 2 is free to play but it earns its revenue by selling virtual cash which is used to purchase items such as uniform cards to get players for team and stats boosts.

A sequel to the game, FIFA Online, was announced on January 30, 2010.

Gameplay and features[edit]

Gameplay is largely the similar to FIFA08 and FIFA09. In addition, visual modifications to the kits have been updated to the kits of the current real-life season to keep up with the times.

Once logged in, a user can create a team based on the certain approved teams EA has permission for. There are no Malaysia Super League teams in the game.[1]

In FIFA Online 2, a user can either play through a season or to play against other online players. Playing matches earns LP, which is the in-game currency used to buy players.

There are a few modes in the game:

  • League Play
  • Multiplayer Mode
  • World Tour

League play enables the user's team to play against a specific team in a specific league for LP and experience points. Playing multiplayer mode offers the chance for players to pit their skills against each other. World Tour is whereby players from all over the world gather to play a game.

Server shutdown[edit]

All of FIFA Online 2's servers in Korea were permanently shut down on March 31, 2013. The game on IAHGames shut down permanently on November 5, 2013.
