FIFA 14 for XBox One and PS4 will have four main features:
All 22 players on the pitch possess the intelligence to anticipate and react instinctively to the play around them with human-like reaction times, just like world class footballers.
Players will move more instinctively with the ball, anticipating and reacting to tackles by skipping over out-stretched legs to avoid collisions, using stiff arms to fend-off defenders or to brace for collisions, and turning their bodies to brush through contact. Defenders will anticipate moves to seal off opponents and intercept passes, and slow down attackers by hooking or holding an arm.
FIFA 14 will have stunning accuracy and visuals. The world inside the stadium comes alive as the emotions of new 3D crowds rise and fall around the stories on the pitch.
Players are also aware of the match and what needs to be done to get a result—their sense of urgency increases as the match draws on, and if a goal is needed, they rush to take a throw-in, corner or goal-kick if time is running down.
With 10 times more animation depth and detail, players now plant, pivot and cut, change direction and shift their momentum with the agility and explosiveness of elite athletes.
The fidelity of movement has a game-changing effect on gameplay. Players feel more grounded, agile and athletic, and manage their momentum with distinct foot plants and push-offs, bringing the authentic motion of professional footballers to FIFA 14.
Harnessing the power next gen consoles, FIFA 14 delivers hundreds of new skills and behaviours, new types of shots like side volleys, deflections and first time screamers, and new types of passes, such as touch, over-head, slice and lobs as well as hundreds of new behaviours include trapping the ball in stride at pace, panic turns when defenders are beaten, off-balance shots, missed shot reactions, and more are a result of the massive increase in memory of the new consoles.
About the FIFA 14 new features, the Executive Producer David Rutter said that “FIFA 14 on next gen consoles will feel alive with players who possess human-like intelligence, reactions and instincts, players who move and behave like real athletes, and stadiums that buzz with electricity and excitement”.
