With the worldwide sensation’s end, people would surely be looking for more about football, how about a Civilization V FIFA Mod, that literally acid comments on the darker side of the whole ordeal? We have had a lot of traditional FIFA games but none of them explained what goes on behind the scenes for each world cup including the most recent FIFA World Cup 2014.
The mod we are talking about is called FIFA World Cup Host Resolution and it does just that. It has been created by a Steam user who goes by the name Steph with an attempt to capture the conspiracies, the scandals, the bribes and the exploitation that goes on in such a scenario:
“There have been dozens of FIFA branded video games. Dozens. Yet every one of these titles ignore the all-powerful FIFA in their gameplay. They don’t showcase the scandal, the copious wealth, the controversial remarks. They’re just about soccer. And that’s not enough. That’s not FIFA. What I bring is the opportunity to dive head first into the most drama-filled element of the World Cup: the bidding war to host the tournament.”
It even has a new unit known as the Migrant Worker that you can put to work without food and water for hours. You are exploiting them because you hold back their passports and their salaries until you are satisfied. ‘They are the foundations, on which your brand new stadiums rest on,’ and they come in millions!
