I'd agree that some of the players have "that look" at the moment. I am hoping that they will evolve over time via the FanHub (online player sharing). Some of the players look spot on, so I think we'll get there.
The FanHub is available on Steam for free right now btw if you want to have a look at the players, there's also goal kicking and tackling drills.
Steam is global, same date all around the world. There's no date confirmation for the Steam release though, Tru Blu has always released the PC versions a couple of months later. Hard to say if it'll be the case this time as well.
