FIFA 10FIFA 10 - Virtual Pro Guide

A brand new feature of FIFA 10 is the Virtual Pro mode, in which you can create a player and increase his skills. You can also use this Virtual Pro to unlock content and features, some are specifically for your pro to use, some are features you can use throughout FIFA 10, such as new celebrations or boots.



Your player will unlock new skills and traits which in turn affect his overall. Keep in mind that it is impossible for your player to reach 99 Overall, the max is around 90. By viewing your Accomplishments, you can see which ones you still need to achieve and how to do so, and which ones you have already gotten. You will notice that some of the accomplishments are listed as 'Secret'. Below are the secret achievements that are not listed in the Accomplishments Book.

To use your earned accessories, or to edit your Pro in other ways, go to 'Edit Pro', from the Virtual Pro mode interface.


Game Face

One of the most unique aspects of Virtual Pro, or FIFA 10 in general is Game Face, which allows you to download an image of your own face to be used for your Virtual Pro! You can do this online via EA Sports' website. However, before you get into this I recommend taking a quick look at my guide on Game Face here.


Playing Online

While you can take your player into a match in nearly any offline game mode, you may want to use them online. Your Pro will be available in Unranked games, and Pro Club Championship, which is an online game mode that allows you to create or join a club of Virtual Pros and help bring your club to the top of the leaderboards.
